Default Moto Mower Super Detriot

I saw a Moto-Mower Super Detroit on ebay last week , it has a Wisconsin engine on it, I am wondering if this was a replacement engine, because I thought this mower only used the very rare Briggs Model WA , an engine that was made just for this purpose. I Have a Briggs WA and I am wondering if this is the correct deck for the engine, the serial number 17362.
Thanks
~ Jonathan

Skip,
Could you post a picture please, so I have it for reference, I have never seen one, with the correct motor on it.
I have a City Model Moto Mower 21 "cut mower with an Briggs FI on it, I just picked up not too long ago.
Thanks,
~ Jonathan

Skip,
I just recently bought an Original copy of a manual for a Moto Mower Super Detroit, thanks to John Rolli who spotted it and emailed me about it.
