I know this topic has been covered at length but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for and I'm hoping someone can help direct me...
Has anyone swapped a single cylinder Kohler into a 782? I know anything CAN be done but I'd like to keep sheet metal intact as much as possible... I have a K301 that I was taking a few measurements from and it appears that it may fit although it would be pretty tight (didn't realize how big those singles are compared to the KT17 twins).
On a side note: I've found many examples of swapping other twins into a 782 but if I'm gonna spend the money to do that I'll probably just rebuild the engine in it now...

That 12hp should fit in there with no problems.  You will basically be making it into a model 1282.  That was a single cylinder 12hp.

As long as its a 12hp with a gear starter. If its a starter gen style the side cover wont fit without cutting out a portion where the st/gen is and a lot of rewiring.

Thanks guys, I wasn't sure if the 1282 was essentially the same or not. The one I have is a starter-gen style and while the wiring doesn't scare me at all I'd rather not have to cut the side panel and that's what I was afraid of...
