    What is the word on this engine? Is it a problem to stay away from? They have a great deal on 2006 Lazer Z with 66 deck and 30 Kohler but Ive heard bad on this engine.

    Not a bad engine, just had carb/intake problems. The engine was know to sputter/stumble when going over bumps and on side hills. Last I knew Kohler release an improved intake with a modified bowl vent to address the issue.

    there are sill problems with these, even after the updates. Seems to be a weather/atmosphere thing.

    Ran a 66 with the Vanguard Big Block yesterday. WOW!!!

    I would pass on it, unless this deal your talking about is REALLY good.

    Make sure you mow with it prior to buying it.
