CH12.5-17 will all fit where the Kawasaki is now. The only thing with any of these is on the larger HP, I think starting at the 15 or 16 the mounting bolts step up to a size larger than the FB and the smaller CH's. Sometimes one has to drill the frame for these. The CH12.5 or 13 would make a great replacement.

Mikemerrit pretty much hit the nail on the head. You didn't say what size the mower deck is though. I have used the Kohler's for years now, if you have a 48" or larger I would go with the ch 15. 36" or less the ch 13 is fine.

Can someone give me a model number for the kohlers that will replace the kawasaki.And by the way it has elecrtic clutch and pull starter not electric start.Would replace with another kawasaki but i have found them to really suck but thats just my opinion.

Fogot to say its off a 36 in.scag and bought it in 1998.

7 years can be a long time to run an engine. How many hours do you estimate you put on the engine.

Well i bought it brand new in 1998 and its been sitting in my garage since 2000.It only had a little over 200hrs on it.Had another scag with same motor and same results.It got harder and harder to start until it would not start anymore.Have two buntons one a 1995 the other 2002 both have 18 horse kohlers and never a problem.The 95 has over 2000hrs on it and never a problem same with newer one.I have known alot of people that had the fb460v engine and everyone has told me the same they are not a good motor and to replace with a kohler.

Many consider the 460V the best small motor ever built! A bit under powered by todays standards but they were hard to kill.

The FB460V is probably one of the toughest engine ever used on m/s mowers.

I have a FB460 on an Exmark that has over 2500 hours. It burns a little bit of oil but still starts on the first pull.
