Kawasaki FH680V-BS13-R Engine Replacement Options

TEW Representative: Hello, how may I assist you today?

Bob: I am looking for a replacement engine for my Kawasaki FH 680 V -BS13-R  Do you have a Kohler that will be able to match?

TEW Representative: Let me take a quick look

TEW Representative: Click here for Kawasaki FS651V-DS07S option

TEW Representative: Click here for Kohler Pa-ZT720-3017 option

TEW Representative: Is this a walk behind unit?

Bob: It is a 61 inch rider….a Wright Sentar

TEW Representative: OK, just wanted to be sure

Bob: The Kawasaki option does not list the FH680 for a swap out…shows a bunch of 651’s….and, are you certain that the Kohler would be a solid match?

TEW Representative: Yes, The Kohler ZT720 is a valid replacement for this engine. For the Kohler option you would need to determine which exhaust you prefer in the items related to the side of that engine. You will also need to order the bolts that are related as well because that engine uses a different bolt than your Kawasaki does.

Bob: where would the appropriate exhaust options be located/selected, also, the bolts?

TEW Representative: If you are looking at the kohler, there is a column to the right that says related items 

Bob: oh…sorry,  just saw that info…thanks…what would shipping cost be to 05743 zip code, and what would delivery time be?

All orders ship for $8.95

TEW Representative: Delivery is 3-5 business days.

TEW Representative: The Kawasaki is listed as a 22hp engine and the Kohler is listed as a 21

Bob: Ok, TEW Representative…that is great…I will check with my mechanic this afternoon, and if all looks good, I will order it tomorrow.  Thanks so much

TEW Representative: But those are also rated under a new standard that is stricter than the one used when you bought the FH680 rated at a 23hp

TEW Representative: You are welcome. Have a great day.
