    If the shaft is the same and you have all the electric start parts off the old engine all the blocks are the same (starter/stator mounting etc)......


    Oh..... That new engine is a SSO (self-servicing OEM) spec engine...... Likely Deere so most Kawi dealers will not be able to look all parts up for it......

    I'm not sure but it could be Recoil Start.

    "R" means it's a replacement engine for the original......

    Motor swap done, had to swap flywheels also, starter did bolt right on, added a throttle cable, new motor has a choke it starts much easier in cold.

    Machine is still a bit under powered, is it possible the hydro trans axle is causing this? Is there any filter i can check or replace , check the fluid?

    Thanks
