I have found a exmark with a bad, 35hp Briggs vanguard engine is it possible to replace it with a Kawasaki FD750D engine?

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?

Its probably a about a 2002 from a Steiner mower

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Will probably have to.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
