    FD series Liquid cooled. V is twin cylinder rad horizontal, D is twin cylinder rad at the back side vertical
    We had a FD580v 19-20 hp in a heavy residential, 1994, 2000 hour-ed John Deere F725 out front 54" mower. rebuilt 3 times

    We re-engined to a 2009 FD731V, 26 hp, without too many modifications. All the mounts were in the same place as the smaller engine. Crankshaft same diameter, pulleys went right back on. Biggest deal was the dipstick on the opposite side, engine 1 inch taller.

    Does anyone know if its possible to swap out the canister style air filter from the FX series motor onto an FR motor? (Or if its been done already by someone)

    As others have mentioned in this thread one of the primary differences b/w the FR and FX is the heavy duty canister air filter so I was curious if it was possible to replace the FR air filter with the FX canister style setup.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    The other difference is that the FR series has a single-barrel carb and the FX series has a double-barrel carb. Don't know how the canister filter setup would affect airflow on the single-barrel carb.
