    The 17hp kawa (fh541v) on my trusty 36" Mini Z has finally given up the ghost. The mower's still got a couple of thousand hours left in her yet so I am going to give her a new engine.
    Can someone please tell me the crank shaft size I need to look for and appropriate engine models?
    Many thanks.

    Your exact engine model and spec are as follows...
    FH541V-S37-R
    The crankshaft is 1" x 80mm

    Cheers for the quick response. Am I to assume that as long as the crankshaft is the same size, that all the fh541v will fit the machine?

    I would not assume that, you would have to verify (with Kawasaki) any spec other than the one I posted to make sure it will work.
