Got an old Sarlo hi wheel mower with the old 5hp vertical Briggs. Would like to change to a newer quantom. The old eng bolts down to a flat plate with only a small hole for crank to go thru. The quantom wont bolt flat but looks like has to have a big hole to sit down in like a push mower. How can I adapt?

Hi, you should be able to source a spacer ring that sit between the engine and the deck. Some manufacturers fit these as standard. You'll need longer bolts to fit the engine and maybe a different length blade boss to suit. Worth taking some measurements inside the deck before you start to dismantle ie how far the blade sits inside the deck
Good luck Phil :)
