What condition would create a necessity for an oversized seal bore?

I don’t know why just watching that makes me cringe. Lycoming abuse!

Chris, finally had a long trip to Florence S.C. from Delaware. Ran perfect. 10 gallons an hour like it was clockwork.

Airworx LLC can now bring those baby Franklin engines back to a true OH condition. The small 4 cylinder 4ac-176 and 199 engines had no cylinders left in NOS condition and were all worn completely out. We have worked with a vendor and can now chrome the cylinders back to standard bore. During the overhaul process, they will have the cast iron guides replaced with custom bronze valve guides as well. This should make the cylinders last beyond TBO which was always the weak link. Pictures for reference prior to being worked.Image attachment

Thank you for supporting the 4ACs!

What are we doing at Airworx on a wet Monday? Lycoming IO-360 experimental engine and an O-300D for a Cessna 172. Quality aircraft engines on a daily basis.Image attachment

A couple more good looking engines! If things go as planned, you'll have another O-300 in your shop this year. Email sent.

Briefly, what kinds of changes were made to the Lycoming? Blue print, port and polish, higher compression piston?

They look good!!

wow!!! looking good!!

I wasn’t sure if that was legal for certified units? I’m sure it’s fine for experimental applications.

An excellent service!

10% increase is allowed per FARs from what i understand.

Another question, if the engine has flowed cylinders, will it run cooler due to efficiency? If so how much?

When you want more power from your engine, we recommend ported, polished, and flo benched cylinders at overhaul. This provides an increase of about 10 percent power.Image attachmentImage attachment

When its time for new cylinders on my 0-360 sure want this treatment!!...

Much better than helicopter pistons. 🤗😪

O man you speak my language buddy. Love that mod. Try to have this done on everything I own. Cheap ponies. Cheaper then the exhaust kit.

Can this be done to Franklin cylinders too?

Can’t wait to bolt that engine up!!! Thanks for all the communication!!

Is port/polish available on Franklin 180hp?

Roughly what is the charge per cylinder for Lycomings?

You guys built a flow bench?

Any REJ38 yet????

Great idea!

Both lycoming and Franklin pieces?

Will said parts be listed here or somewhere else?

Hmm! Can you tell what we are working on this week?

Comment on Facebook

I think... I see a BABY FRANKLIN in there too! Good Good! February is coming quickly! 😀

Magic. Your going to turn repairable ( G ) parts into serviceable ( Y ) parts.

Lycomings?

Looks like you are just getting “cranky”

That is grinding a blank to "stock" specifications not a regrinding correct? It looks like a raw casting...

Chris, you're awesome. I'm so grateful that you have devoted your craftsmanship to these amazing engines.

Wow that’s amazing. Some serious math in that machine lol

That master lobe looks wore

What kind of threatment do you apply to continental tappet body after regrind/resurface and camshaft?

Merry Christmas to you guys!

Can I ship you a couple jugs while you’re closed or should I wait? Thx

Crankshaft overhauled in-house at Airworx. Plated flange and baked to eliminate nitrogen embrittlement.

Comment on Facebook

I have a question as to the 'baking' after plating, I believe it is to be done within a certain time frame. Can you overdo the heat treatment. Or is there a specific time to keep to. A crankshaft is a critical component, do you have any other checks and balances in place to

My days in turbofan & turbojet arena, dwg revisions to older dwgs on certain parts & plating always had the bake-off note added. It was xxx temp for y # of hrs typically....

How long is the máximum between cad plating and baked in the oven? Is there any time restriction? Or you can put it after days. Thanks from spain

220HP??

Fantastic work, looks awesome!

Sorry, to 'Know' its integrity after the plating process. Thanks again

Do you do all brands? Got a base pricing schedule ?

Nice!

Nice plating!

Hi Airworx, Thanks for this, looks fab!!

What’s the highest rpm this crank will see ?
