    I ran across a newer Wright mower that the owner blew the engine on.

    It's currently a 19hp Kaw but I was thinking for the right price, I could buy it and drop a 23hp Kaw on it to resell.

    So my question(s) are, where would I get a good price on a new engine and what type shaft would the engine need to work on the stander?

    I know Kaw makes a lot of different shaft types to work on different mowers....

    I would guess some pretty big bucks for those engines....probably push closer to $2K then to $1K. Any idea how he blew the 19hp, since that is what we run. I have noticed that the oil is very very dirty after about a week of run so we change every other week.

    The 23 kaw. new are going for around $1500 give or take depending on where you buy.

    Russo in Chicago will probably have a low price on these.

    Wow, the 19 is way cheaper. I've got a call into the owner to see what he would sell it for. Maybe I could rebuild it.

    Not sure what happened to the other engine. By the looks of the situation, poor maintenance. The dealer thinks the crank is bad but he's out of warranty and would rather buy something new than chance something that is rebuilt or had the engine replaced... :hammerhead:

    Why not post in the repair forum....I would think those engines should be able to be rebuilt.
