That will be a big problem, and well as the wiring harness will be different.
What's wrong with the old engine?

not worried about the wiring, the parts manual shows the same clutch and drive pulley for both engines, the kawi pulled a rocker stud and they kept running it on one cyl and wiped the rings and overheated it I guess smokes and burn oil like mad

If the PTO mounts at the end of the shaft that 1" might be an issue.
I would pull the heads and check the cylinder that had the problem.
I would think that a rebuild, if possible is a better and cheaper solution unless the cylinder has excessive damage and can't be honed.

I have a snapper with the Kawasaki FX600 engine can I replace that with a B/S v twin I think they list the crank to be about 1 inch longer on the Kawi is hat a problem?



Absolutely yes.


I had no problem finding replacement engines for a 2001 Snapper rider.


Find the tag on the engine that contains the exact model number of that engine. Then search Google:


replacement engine for <model number brand name of engine>


The mid-west suppliers had the best prices. May have been Tulsa engines.
