    Just wondering how many more hours should one expect from a water cooled engine? My understanding is that an air cooled engine should last about 2500 hrs. How much does the upgrade cost new say on a 27 hp motor and would the higher resale value a few years down the road make up for this difference? I would assume most do not keep a mower long enough to wear out an air cooled engine but I could be wrong. All comments welcome.
