Q: I have come across your name looking for answers to the following: We had to rebuild a Lycoming 0-540-J3C5D with normal wide deck cylinders instead
of the thin wide deck cylinders nine years ago and 800 flying hours. This engine just came in for a cam shaft change.
Our question is can we continue the rest of the engine’s life with the cylinders as explained above?
In your opinion, can there be a safety issue by using the same cylinders?
