    Re: Magnesium decks?

    Just the aluminum plate is different, the engine should be interchangeable.

    Edit: since the carbs might different between the two engines you may need to leave the original carb on the donor engine if you go that route. The reason being is that the throttle cable-to-carb setup may not be the same.

    Re: Magnesium decks?

    No, none of these have a throttle cable, they all use the same type plastic carb. I have a little work to do to the donor engine though, noticed the old fuel was left in the tank so that'll have to be cleaned out. I hate to swap engines before I'm sure the one going in will run. They do have a different shroud around the top of the engine so I'll probably just swap the whole thing rather than just the block.

    Re: Magnesium decks?

    I swapped engines today. While I had everything apart on the bottom of the engine I went ahead and put a main seal in the engine. Just the plate and muffler were different, I had to use the ones that came on the alloy deck. I put some Dirko on the seal to kinda insure it won't come out so I didn't try to start the engine until that dries. I probably won't be around much tomorrow so I'll probably try to fire it up Wednesday, grass is kinda needing cut anyway..
