    I need a replacement engine for my trac vac and need some technical help from all of you. The current motor is a Kohler CH6hp horizontal shaft engine that has seen better days. I have had nothing but problems with this model and will not replace it with the same. The Kohler website shows some of the specs of this model on their website but does not show the shaft size for me to fnd a replacement engine. The small engine warehouse has a replacement honda GX200QX 6.5hp horizontal 3/4" keyed engine for $350 with free shipping. An incredible deal! My local Toro dealer said his honda replacement engine was $450 plus you needed a special "kit" to fit it to the trac vac. 1st question, will this GX200 engine work on my trac vac, and 2nd, does anyone know of this special kit and why I need it? Thanks for your help.

    Mike
