I probably will buy a C-172 with a new — actually rebuilt — O-310-H2AD engine. Do you know if this engine is reliable? Does it meet the latest factory changes?
This seems like a stupid question but I’m going to ask anyway. Did Lycoming ever have a service kit to put hydraulic lifters into the O-235?
I have an O-235 Lycoming engine. The assembly case has not been drilled to accept an oil cooler.
QUESTION: I have a question on my IGO-540-A1A, an engine with a rated RPM of 3,400. When it comes time for an overhaul, S.I. 1037K calls for intake valve LW-12949.
For those of us who reside in northern climates, it’s time for us to begin thinking about what we need to do to get our aircraft ready to put in the barn for the winter.
QUESTION: I have had instructors insist that I lean the engine while taxiing my O-320 Lycoming.
QUESTION: A friend has an O-320 in his hangar. I have only the following data, and am wondering how or where I can use these data to determine exactly which engine this is. Data plate says: O-320, eng #2689-27. The case is cast with the number L-17001-27A. I tried using the Lycoming website, hoping for a serial number lookup table, but so far no luck.
I have a Lycoming O-320-D2A that will be going into a Wittman Tailwind. The crankcase and crankshaft are yellow tagged. The camshaft is really pitted and will need to be replaced. I imagine the followers will need replacing also unless refurbishing them isn’t a big deal.
I have a high-wing homebuilt aircraft into which I have installed an IO-360-A1B 200-hp Lycoming salvaged from a Lake Amphiban, with 660 TT. My problem is that it makes loud popping noises at low RPM, such as when landing or taxiing. I have a cross-over type exhaust, and have had a mechanic check both the exhaust and the intake for leaks, but this is not the problem. Do you have any idea what else might cause this problem?
I own a 1962 Piper Colt with a O-235-C1B engine. My operator manual says that I should have 115 hp at 2800 RPM. At what point would I achieve highest RPM? On takeoff? Level flight at full throttle?
