After putting in a new fuel regulator, new starter, etc. on my Generac 7kw (Model 0052400), the engine threw a rod. The generator is just 10 years old. Is it possible to buy a rebuilt engine for it and have it installed? If so, what kind of costs would be involved? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum! It looks like yours is a standby generator, not a portable/roll-around generator:

From some info there, your engine might be a GH-990 HSB? I also saw a reference to GTH-990/GTH-999. As well as GH-410.

This site is selling a GTH-990 for $1,300:
Generac Generator Parts-0H4655-ENGINE GTH990 HSB 2010

But you'd need to confirm your exact engine model #, before shopping.

Did the connecting rod punch a hole in the crankcase? If not, it's possible that it could be repaired, though that wouldn't necessarily be easy/cheap. Merely a possibility, if buying a replacement engine is difficult. Even if it *did* punch a hole, it might still be possible to repair, by also replacing the broken casting.
