Repowering older WB?

I picked up a older Hustler WB that has a blown engine. Model no. 925651 Serial no. 00070006. The blown engine is 17HP Kawasaki FH500V-AS02-01.

Can you give me ideas on what engines I should be looking for. I want something that will bolt right up and use the same wire harness. possibly even a 19HP. It has to be pull start. I don't care if it is Kawasaki or Kohler. I have never replaced an engine before so I prefer a direct fit replacement.

Thanks,
Soupy

I would go directly to your Kawasaki dealer with the numbers you have on the engine and they can match it up with a bolt on engine. I would stick with the Kawasaki, there might be wiring issues with another brand.
