Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be happy to assist you. I am sure that your 22 Hp engine will bolt to your L100 frame, but there are a few things that you will need to take into consideration. The mufflers will be different on the two engines, and your wiring may be different. Also, your choke and throttle cables, will not hook up the same. With some modifications, you should be able to make the engine work, after the swap.
