    I have a turf tracer hydro walk behind the 17hp kaw is burning oil the rest of the mower is bullet proof. Can I upgrade to a 19 kaw with no modifications just bolt in and go?

    Only other problem the right ecs grip hangs up sometimes I can't find the point where it is hanging up? Any tips suggestions help would be great.

    Hello Drew,
    The 19 hp Kawi will line up with the 17 hp bolt pattern.
    To help alleviate the ECS from sticking, first loosen the flange bearing bolts. Grip and release the control handle a few times, creating clearance and then retighten the flange bearing bolts. I hope this helps.
