replacement engine question

Hey All... just had the kaw fc420v on my old 36 walkbehind crap out on me. Not finding many options locally on craigslist And whatnot finding a cheap replacement instead of buying new. I did find a 12hp Briggs someone yanked out of riding lawnmower. It has the same crank so I know I will be able to swap the pulleys out..but the problem I see is that I this electric start. All the wiring and everything is there, so I am wondering what kind of problems this would cause if I install it onto my old walk behind . I am aware I will have to mount a battery somewhere. Anyone see any major problems I would have? Thanks

For your application you likely wouldn't have a regulator but just a stator wire for the charging system.....

Here's another basic ign diagram. http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Brig...n-Spec-Charts/ Scroll down to Ign. wiring diagram.
Wouldn't be a bad idea to save everything on that page, no?
