Lycoming is a major aircraftengine company, known primarily for their smaller general aviation engines.
Lycoming first set up business in 1916 in Williamsport, Pa (in Lycoming County) as a sewing machine manufacturer, and soon branched out into bicycle manufacturing as well.
The hyper engine concept was a psychological target for engine designers in the 1930s; in order to make really long-distance flights routine, an engine of this sort of power-to-weight ratio would be needed to lift the required fuel and still have power left over to lift the cargo.
Lycoming has six families of engines: the 235, 320, 360, 540, 580 and 720 cubic inch series.
In addition, the engine is reassembled with all new cylinder assemblies, including barrels, heads, pistons, rings, piston pins and plugs, intake and exhaust valves, springs, guides, seats and gaskets plus automatic replacement of any and all parts not meeting new engine tolerances throughout the engine.
And a Lycoming factory overhauled engine is backed by a factory warranty for a full year from the time it is put back in service, regardless of the number of hours flown before overhaul.
