swapping to a Predator engine?
Ok, so after looking around for a good used Kawasaki FD620d engine under $600 (and not finding one) in very good condition. We have found a 22hp Predator engine for sale locally. Guy bought it, never used it, hasnt even put oil in it yet..and wants $500 for it. in the box.
Problem is the old Kawasaki has the Tapered shaft for the driven clutch for the gator, and this 22hp Predator has has a 1 inch straight shaft. CAN I "adapt" the driven clutch from the Gator, or do I need to buy a different clutch to fit a 1 inch straight shaft? Does anyone have any part info or part #'s to do this?
Thanks again for any input.
