Remanufactured Bobcat mt52 engine

Im looking for a replacement motor for my mt-52. Mechanic says that the 3rd cyl. is not firing. Its a Kubota 3 cyl.
Bobcat wanted over 5k for a new replacement. I found a website http://www.dieselenginetrader.com/ that has them for 3+K with a $700 core replacement.
Does this sound right?
Does anyone have any better suggestions/websites?

Thanks for the help,

Evan

Take it to another diesel mechanic and get a second opinion. You might beable to get away with a single cylinder rebuild if that is the problem. At lease get a compression test on the cylinder that is bad
