    Sometimes you can get an indication from comparing the parts catalogs for both motors. Looks like the driveshaft top bearing is shared as well as the shims in that location, but the lower bearing...

    I'm running a muffler and it is loud when running. It is a stock 20" 3cyl 70 with a 2cyl lower. No mods, all original.

    Very similar, yes. not Exactly the same. Likely more differences between the 60D/60DE (6F1) and the regular 48/55/60 2Cyl than the differences between the 70CES (6J2) and the regular 70hp (6H3).
