Customer Question

I have a Dixie Chopper mower with a Generac engine GTV-990. Everything working fine, shut mower off and tried to restart 5 minutes later, engine turned over fast like no compression and wouldn't start. Took a compression test and gauge reads 0 on both cylinders. Pulled valve covers and valves all appear to be working, check pistons and they appear to be working properly. Spark plugs look perfect. Engine didn't make any kind of noise and doesn't when turned over.
