I just bought this engine thinking it was for a 620i gator that my dad owns. I was going to give it to him and was not able to look at his gator before the auction ended as he is a long way from me. Is this for a 620? I know should have looked better but it was reasonable and I know people with other gators so could help them out. Stub shaft is for a gator. Fd620d-ps24-r. I tried looking that number up and it did not come up.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks.

Well crap. I think I figured it out. Looks like an mia12906 for an hpx. It is new and has never been run but won’t fit the 620i unless I can change intake? I have an hpx but is diesel.

Any chance the long block would be the same or be usable in the 620i? Maybe switch over intake and disconnect the governor?

Anything is possible. It depends on the tools & skills you have available and whether or not you want to take on the project. If you are looking for a relatively easy project I'd say sell that engine and get exactly what is needed.

Years ago I converted my Gator to a different engine. Both engines are very similar but I knew there would be gotcha's however I wasn't prepared for how many. What I thought would be a fun one or maybe two day job turned out to take four long, hard days with a lot of fabrication of custom parts to make it work. Even though things may look similar or even identical from one engine to another the slightest difference usually means a lot more work.

Might be more of a pain than it is worth. Thanks for your response.
