    It does with minor opening of the motor mount holes on the stock motor mount. You can just use a drill to elongate the 2 holes and you can get teh screws in no problem. Some people have used a spacer to move the motor away from the mount a few MM so that the pinion will fit more easily. I didnt do this. I just flipped the pinion around and fit it as tight as possible... It has worked without coming loose once in the past 2 summers.

    Heres a link to my dewalt install thread for reference:

    Yes it will . You will see that you're only moving the centerline of the holes away from the center a couple of millimeters. I used a small round file.
