Replacing the Robin engine on my PG Centri

Who has replaced it with the Kawasaki? Where did you order it? What steps did you take?

Your information is greatly appreciated!!!

Does the Kawi?

Mine was converted to a battery sprayer when the generator went down.

Rebuild the robin. Or I may have the Kawi # just have to check , there is also a honda that fits.the generator can be had from the original mfgr just need # . The generator set up is perfect because as u slow down in corners and such the spray slows down .

How much money do you want to sink in an old Centri? Just thoughts.....

May take more than Batman to replace that Robin.

I payed 500.00 I've probably put another 300-400 into after three years. The engine is still good but just making plans. I had the clutch go out yesterday after dealing with problems with it so I am ordering a clutch from PG for it today. Maybe 100.00 more than aftermarket but I won't have to shop and mess around with any retrofitting.

I like getting parts from Permagreen , but stuff like clutch, trans, motor , tank, generator can be found elsewhere for prob half of what Permagreen charges

Does the motor need a jackshaft in the front to power the spinner?

yes the spinner is belt driven, it always spins when the motor is running.
