    If it fits, no problem at all.
    Be a good match, maybe better fuel economy too ;)

    Motor installed. Man, this gx340 is big. Runs good but surges a little. Hopefully a little seafoam will clear it up.

    Never got an answer in the last thread, what GPM is your pump? If anything a larger motor could run a larger pump if you are looking for a faster cycle time.

    I really don't know the pump GPM. The tag on it is damaged. If I post a pic can you tell?
