I have a f series engine that I took off of an early 80's model 4503 Scamp and am wondering if I can mount this to any f series deck. The Scamp was a great, cheap, light weight mower but the steel deck didn't hold up very well. I used that mower right up to the day the wheels literally fell off around 20 years ago. I kept the engine and scrapped what was left of the deck. Last week I found the engine hidden in a corner of the garage, rebuilt the carb, jury rigged a solid engine mount with a couple of 2x4's and saw horses and fired the old boy up. What a sweet sound. I know there are some really knowledgable lawnboy lovers on this forum who can offer solid advice on fitment. Thanks in advance.

Hi dougmac, welcome to the forum. Seems those old Lawn Boys just won't quit. You're right, there will be somebody along who knows Lawn Boys, and I'm guessing Brad will chime in.

Took a while to get you an answer, but a friend of mine that knows his LB's says:

Tell the other guy with the engine fit question that the Scamp F engine will fit a cast deck, but the muffler plate will not.
The cast deck will swallow the Scamp plate.

That is correct
