I just found this on Craigslist, It's a John Deere 140 with Kwik-Way Loader and a 4 1/2' hydraulic blade.
I only paid $300 for everything :D
The guy i got it from didint' know anything, he bought it as a project and never even tried to start it, i got it home and tried to start it just to find out the connecting rod is broke, the piston is stuck, and the spark plug was so tight the head might be junk. :mecry: .
But i have a 18hp Kohler V twin engine and i will do some measuring and see if it fits.
Here is a coulpe of pictures

Congrats. Don't get too sad over the lunched engine. If you have the twin it very well may fit. If you search Utube there is a video of a 140 re power with a Vanguard v twin. Check it out. It fit in there really nice.

Thanks everyone, i can't beleive i got it for that price, when i had seen that on CL i just knew it was already gone, I'm not to disappointed about the engine, i would have paid $300 for just the loader.
Thanks for the Youtube video, that Kohler engine should be around the same size as the Briggs.
Thanks again for everyone'ts impute

Document everything! When the sheriff comes for you, you will need proof you didn't steal it!

I always hear about folks getting these deals.
