Kohler 14 HP

I have an opportunity to purchase a used Kohler 14 hp engine. The guy is asking $150 bucks. I have 2 questions.

A) Will this fit a Snapper Hi vac rear engine riding mower as far as shaft diameter and length....

B) is it worth $150 and how old it is, what year is it. here is all the 411 on engine.

Kohler Command
Overhead Valve
CV 14S
Spec 1451

serial 2305507024

As always thank you in advanced.....

You're going to have to check your shaft size and diameter to see if it matches. Most likely, it does and it should fit the frame, however, you may need to make changes to the throttle cable and electrical connections. Snapper had a variety of engines on their mowers, including kohlers, and most have a 1" X 3 5/32" keyed crankshaft. The price is reasonable if it is a good engine without problems.
