Kawasaki Engine Numbers

Hi all,

I have a 2012 John Deere R54PKB mower fitted with a Kawasaki engine which I believe to be the FJ151 series of engines but the engine label is missing. Does anyone know if there is a an alternative label elsewhere?




Hi Kev.  I don't work on Kawasaki stuff that much, but would be very surprised if the engine model and serial number isn't etched or stamped on to the engine crankcase as well. 


Hi Mick,

I looked everywhere for an engine number. I even took the exhaust off to look behind it. The only thing I did not do is remove the engine from the mower!!

However I was able to identify the engine model by looking up the mower model number on the John Deere parts website. I cross references to a Kawasaki type FJ180V. According to the Kawasaki website the actual engine number is usually on a label that is stuck to the side of the plastic panel that incorporates the fuel tank.
