You should be able to. The only thing that I can think of that might keep you from doing so is the crankshaft pto diameter. The machine should have plenty of room to handle to engine without any problem. The wiring should be the same, the exhaust may be different but you can probably reuse the exhaust from the Deere with some modification. I don't see anything that would keep you from swapping them. PTO crankshaft diameter is the only stop point that I can think of. Thanks
