    I have a chariot jr 48" cut with a kawasaki 17hp motor. It's a little under powered for me and bogs down on hill and semi tall grass. I was looking at bigger motors and saw the Briggs 27hp professional vtwin.

    A. Is this a good motor?
    B. would my hydro pumps and all hold up with it?
    C. Would it be hard to switch from a kawasaki to a Briggs?

    I have that same mower and I changed the jet in the carburetor to one from a 23 HP engine and used a k&n filter it seemed to give it more power but I don't have hills.

    Ok cool. Do you have a problem with your fan breaking? Mines broke twice in a month
