    I would like to put the Kaw 15 hp v-twin on my 36" exmark metro belt drive mower. Currently the metro has a 12.5 kaw.

    Will the 15 hp kaw vtwin fit easy on my mower?

    Most likley it will. Your best bet would be to find a kawasaki dealer in your area and ask questions and if available see if it would fit right there in his shop. Some things to keep in mind, bolt pattern should be the same, check crankshaft dia. and length, will the v-block fit, muffler? charging system if elec. start, throttle hook up. Your dealer will have an engine list to show all the deminsions and options. Good luck.
  3. You can check engine specs on line at
    they give you crank dia & length - plus they have drawings of some engines.
