    Well, I made the 5 Hour round trip down to J-Thomas today to pick up my new 15 HP Kawasaki. I think that most people will remember what happened with my old engine.

    Pretty nice place down there, at first though I couldn't find it. I will post pics of the old and new engine, and as well as the shell of the mower later with the engine out of it

    shipping would have been $75, fuel only cost me approx $20.00.. give or take a few. So I saved about $55

    the main reason that I went down there is because they wouldn't be able to get me the engine until Wednesday or possibly Thursday

    ya I know. Thanks for the help. I probably called between 20-30 places on Saturday to have me an engine for Monday and nobody was open, or the ones that were open couldn't make the order until Monday and thus the engine wouldn't get to me until Thursday or Friday at most places (if that).
