Has anyone bought a mower with a 19hp Kawasaki during the last 3 years? I have a friend who has a Stander with one. He just had a run in with a local shop that is putting another engine in because they didn't fix a problem when it was under warranty 3 months ago. Now Kawasaki is replacing the engine but he getting charge $65/hour for labor to install.
Here's the kicker....another mechanic tells him that the Kawasaki engine had a recall due to shorten dipsticks. Causing most to over fill the oil and blowing the heads. Guess what my guy's problem is? Same thing. And the shop that he bought it from didn't tell him about the recall.
