WE have 3 levels of engine overhaul for your consideration. Also you can pay a quoted price for labor only. Or pay for Labor and then all the parts as needed.
First is a Deluxe aircraft engine overhaul. Everything from the firewall forward is reconditioned like new or replaced. We can install a factory engine or use our standard overhaul engine below. It is billed by time and materials only, and includes a 2 year warranty.
Second is a Standard aircraft engine overhaul. It includes Overhauled Magnetos, overhaul of your cylinders and chrome plate the cylinder Bore to new tolerance. New ignition harness, overhauled fuel system, all manditory replacement items listed in the overhaul manual. It cost half the price of a factory rebuilt engine and if you choose to install new cylinders it has the same warranty as their new limit overhaul. Prices are listed on the next page or I can Quote you a price on this overhaul, it carries a 1 year warranty, 2 years if you choose to add factory new cylinders. It is recorded as Overhauled to new limits, Zero hours Since Major Overhaul.
Third is an Economy aircraft engine Repair (IRAN Inspect and Repair As Necessary) this is a bare bones overhaul, Includes new bearings, rings, gaskets and paint. Measuring all components, inspecting for cracks and corrosion, resurfacing components as required for reuse and reassembly, any additional parts required or requested are billed on top of the flat rated price. This engine does not meet the requirements by the FAA as an overhauled aircraft engine. Because it does not include all the manditory replacement parts listed by Continental and Lycoming, we inspect those parts and replace them if they are worn beyond serviceable limits. We have petitioned the FAA for a determinaton if theise replacement items are manditoy and we are still awaiting an answer. In the past they have not been required to be replaced, only inspected, but times have changed. With this IRAN Repair-Total Time Since Major Overhaul (TSMOH) continues. It has a 30 day warranty. Depending on workload this overhaul can take from 6 weeks to two months to complete. This is a good option for someone who is not going to sell the airplane but wants a strong reliable engine at a lower price.
Additionally we can provide you a factory new, or, rebuilt, Zero time overhauled engine. With an installed price lower than anyone else.
If you require an Annual inspection, Engine monitor, or Engine overhaul, we want You leave from our shop in confidence that your aircraft will perform continuously without fault, we want to be your choice as an aircraft engine overhaul provider.
