Customer Question

Need a replacement engine for a Kawasaki FC-540 17 HP that is on my lawn tractor JD GT 262. Mine threw a rod it seems no compression, some air moves in and out from the spark plug but reads zero on the compression tester. Not sure why it happened but the engine was running really hot. Had oil as it was changed in the spring.
Saw JD has a short block but is 2400$.
