    I have a John Deere 314 with a 14hp kohler that needs to be replaced. Can I replace this engine with a 14hp briggs and stratton from another mower?

    yea you can as long as you have the same shaft and it sits the same way.

    probably not without a bunch of wiring changes. the old kohlers had a battery ignition coil & the briggs do not
