Replacing a RWC 28hp with a Kubota based powerplant. Based on preliminary conversations with mechanics, it probably won't need stringer work, but will certainly need the mounts moved to support the new footprint and the shaft will need replacing as well as the prop. I've received ballpark estimates that sound okay, but nothing that'd I'd call a GFE that I could sign off on as a work order.
