    Im looking for a replacement engine for my jx 85 push mower. If i buy from my John Deere dealer, my cost for a short block is $625. John Deere has an agreement with Kawasaki to only make these engines availible thru a John Deere dealer. I have quite a few of these mowers, they are a great mower but when one of my guys hits something hard it bends the crank and to replace the crank is $135 , you should replace the piston and rings etc while you have the engine apart and who knows what John Deere would charge for the additional parts. Any feed back would be appreciated
