    It depends if yours has a bracket on top that bolts through the head and stabilizes the blower housing to the engine. If it does, see if you can use the bracing from a Little Wonder with a Honda engine on there.

    there was a honda engine on there but it was blown so i can get a good deal on a 9hp or a 8hp kawi from my dealer. Would it fit?

    I'm going to guess the mounting base dimensions are going to be the same, but make sure to check the crank to make sure to get the right one.

    I tried to find a spec. sheet on these engines and failed, But I would agree with Dweezil on the bolt pattern being the same just double check the crank size and length.

    Take the old Honda engine off and measure according to these directions:
