Thumbs up

I'm sending them my 540 engine (1999) to be completely rebuilt. I'm looking for any input that anyone has on this company good or bad...

The dealer's price would be shocking would it not?
How's BAX's price?

from what I've heard they're a real good company, but find somewhere locally that will do it, it'll be a lot cheaper... and why a rebuilt already?

I heard the same thing, just trying to get any and all info I could. And to answer your question...I'll give you some math: Wife + 540 + debris in road = Blown engine (SLAM!) Will not drive w/out oil...get it...

They do absolutely great business... but are exspensive... get a different engine.. and or buy a used one if you are in need of an engine..

Good Luck,

Les
