I need a used replacement engine for a Kaw FV540 engine. I know to watch Ebay, but could be a long time before one pops up there.

Would appreciate hearing about any online sources of guys who might trade in garden tractors and/or engines for them.

New engine costs would make our needed repairs prohibitive. So, we need to find a good used one.

Ours got submerged during Ivan, and it was awhile before anyone could get to it. Matter of priorities...........

Thanks for the tip

Probably your best bet is to start sending Greg (in washington state) weekly packages of cookies and sweets and maybe a christmas present.....He always seems to come up with good serviceable stuff at his JD dealer..........:D

So it only got wet? Can't you clean out the fuel system, change oil, and check electrical system?
Back in 1979 I salvaged quite a few boats with motors after Hurricane Fredrick came ashore. I was in the process of rebuilding after the storm,. but on days when I was at a stopage due to material shortages I would often go hunting for sunk stuff. All engines I salvaged were returned to running condition with nothing more than a good cleaning, and relacement of filters and fluids after a good fresh water rise down and dryoff............Engines ranged from a small 4 1/2 hp Merc outboard to I/O equipped boats..........wound up with a total of 9 boats and or motors, none of which the owners wanted anything to do with since they were paid for by insurances..........
