That model number doesn't sound right, a Kohler 440 to me is an old snowmobile engine.

Kohler (and most manufacturers) lists the shaft diameter, shaft length, shaft location and mounting hole dimensions for its engines on the website.  You could check if the dimensions for a higher cc engine match your current engine.  It's just a guess that above 20 hp the dimensions change. 

Woodmizer LT35HD25, Kubota MX5100, IH McCormick Farmall 140, Granberg Alaskan Chainsaw Mill, Husqvarna 372XP, Husqvarna 455 Rancher, Ram 3500 6.7 Cummins

My uncle replaced the factory engine in his boardwalk with the 22hp predator from harbor freight. It's been running strong for several years and cost about half of a name brand in the same hp rating.
