Q: What is the recommended TBO for a Lycoming TIO-540-J2BD engine in a Piper Chieftain? A: Roger, the TBO time for a Lycoming TIO-540-J2BD is 1,800 hours. However, there is the possibility of an additional 200 hours providing you can meet the following criteria, which I copied from Lycoming Service Instruction 1009BC.
In real numbers an Lycoming Rebuilt “Zero Time” Exchange O-540-F1B5 Engine will spike by more than $5500 from the current retail price of $48,303 to $53,879.
The (L)IO-360-M1A engine has a rated maximum continuous power of 180 hp at 2700 RPM at standard sea level conditions. The engine has a bore of 5.125 in., a stroke of 4.375 in., a piston displacement of 361 cubic inches, and a compression ratio of 8.5:1.
Lycoming`s 540 Series six-cylinder engines are powerful and durable, producing 235 to 360 hp at up to 2,700 RPM.
As an owner, and under many FAA Part 91 operations, you can continue to operate the engine past the TBO as long as you meet the mandatory service bulletins and airworthiness directives. The engine must also continue to meet the minimum qualifications to be airworthy by your mechanic at inspections.
When the engine reaches the TBO, it must be removed from service and completely overhauled to manufacturer`s specifications. Thereafter, when the engine is reinstalled, and the appropriate logbook entries are made, the aircraft is eligible to re-enter commercial service.
5. 1200 HOURS: Engines that do not have large main bearing dowels should not be operated more than 1200 hours between overhauls. 1400 HOURS: Engines that have large main bearing dowels may be operated to 1400 hours between overhauls.
In many respects, they`re more reliable than automotive engines. Most pilots will fly their entire lives without a murmur of complaint from the Lycoming/Continental/Jacobs/Pratt & Whitney out front.
The XR-7755-3 is the largest, most powerful reciprocating aircraft engine in the world. During World War II, the U.S. Army Air Forces requested an engine with high takeoff power and low fuel consumption for a yet-to-be designed long-range bomber and transport.
`O` or `IO`

So to start, the first letter, “O,” indicates a carbureted engine. If the letter “I” proceeds this first number, this indicates an injected-fuel system.

The company has built more than 325,000 piston aircraft engines and powers more than half the world`s general aviation fleet, both rotary and fixed wing. Lycoming is an operating division of Avco Corporation, itself a subsidiary of Textron.
The materials used to make the engines are of the highest quality, and the manufacturing processes are highly specialized and precise, using advanced techniques such as 3D printing and CNC machining.
On the one hand, this is due to the shorter distance to the destination, but also due to saving long waiting times at check-in or at the security check at major airports. However, our customers often ask us “Can private planes still land at major airports?” The answer is yes!
To do an actual overhaul—rather than simply taking an engine apart, inspecting it, and randomly replacing some things—you have to send the parts off to a machine shop specializing in aircraft engine work. They inspect the parts and call them good or repair them, or scrap them as the inspections indicate.
All Lycoming Engines have a recommended calendar overhaul of 12 years regardless of the time on the engine.
All Lycoming Engines have a recommended calendar overhaul of 12 years regardless of the time on the engine.
Time between overhauls (abbreviated as TBO or TBOH) is the manufacturer`s recommended number of running hours or calendar time before an aircraft engine or other component requires overhaul. On rotorcraft, many components have recommended or mandatory TBOs, including main rotor blades, tail rotor blades and gearboxes.
5. 1200 HOURS: Engines that do not have large main bearing dowels should not be operated more than 1200 hours between overhauls. 1400 HOURS: Engines that have large main bearing dowels may be operated to 1400 hours between overhauls.
5. 1200 HOURS: Engines that do not have large main bearing dowels should not be operated more than 1200 hours between overhauls. 1400 HOURS: Engines that have large main bearing dowels may be operated to 1400 hours between overhauls.
The majority of Lycoming engines are lifted at 2,000 hours or 12 years, whichever occurs first. Lycoming engines that live a hard life, such as in aerobatic machines or crop-dusters, are often restricted to 1,400 hours, whereas the Cessna 152/Piper PA-38 O-235 has a recommended TBO of 2,400 hours.

Spark plug wire boot grounding out on coil, 96 outback 2.5 automatic, just put new spark plug wires, new spark plugs, and new coil on. ran great for two weeks, now spark is jumping out of boot at coil on one wire, put old coil back on and still does it in the same spot. replaced wires again, and still does it in the same spot. seems to do it only under a load. Is my new spark plug on that cylinder bad? Does the coil need some insulation under it? It is the coil that sits right on top of the motor. Any ideas? thanks.
ANSWER : Sparks are high voltage, and will always follow the path of least resistance. If you can visibly see a spark (whether in a lighted area, or in the dark), that means either that a plug wire (or coil wire) is open (non conductive), or your have a carbon track on the surface where the spark can be seen, but most likely you have BOTH problems!

If you have an ohmmeter, check the resistance of each wire involved, particularly spark plug wires … which means you must be able to connect to both ends of each wire at the same, and hopefully, FLEX those wires, to be sure they don’t have a break inside that is intermittent (comes and goes)!

Bike pedal is striped , get a new one or buy new bike?
ANSWER : It depends on the bike. if it’s a “cheap-o” bike;
if it’s one for little kids that costs under $50 – $70 or so then yeah, just get a new one.
if it’s a nice bike that cost you a bit more, i’d get it repaired at a bike shop or a sporting goods store.

Hope this helps!

My swimming pool. I have just had my fifth IC 40 Intellichlor chlorine generator installed in 4 years at a cost of over $900 today. Each one has worked for no more than 8 months. The first three were replaces under three year warranty, the fourth by a factory rep and I bought the fifth today. The first three all failed with Flow Chk PCB error message. The fourth just stopped working on Sunday, no power or lights. A local Pentair warranty person, whom I paid a Service Call, unplugged the unit, opened the small power center cover, showed me the green light indicating that there was power, plugged in a new IC 40 which worked immediately (as did the other four). I asked if I should replace the power center and he said that it’s basically just a transformer and is working fine. We do get occasional power blips that make the clocks on microwaves, etc blink, but I thought that the power center essentially isolates the cell from these. I do have a Florida Power and Light surge protector on the electrical box that brings power into the house. I have now talked to the pool builder, two Pentair warranty repairmen and one factory rep. I am at a loss. They all tell me they have no idea why these units fail after less than a year. This last IC 40 was installed 3/24/2010, version 2.0 and now failed in less than 5 months. Should I replace the power center that the IC 40 plugs into. Any other suggestions. I have been told that this is the best chlorinator. I don’t want to keep replacing units. By the way, each unit had been spotless inside. I keep the water chemicals and salt levels at ideal levels. The units have never worked long enough to get dirty inside. The power center is connected to an Intellitouch control system outside with an indoor control panel. Last time I called Pentair North Carolina and got some smart alec tech person that had no suggestions. Please Help if you can.
ANSWER : I’ve had the same experiance. On my fifth one as well. Fail every year. No idea why.

I have a new York 4 ton 15SEER YHJF48 with X13 motor air handler heat pump. It has a digital thermostat, touch screen, programmable, with many numbers on it. Not sure which to include here, but will try pat.# 6595430D509151 and TH 8321u1055. I do not have an instruction manual and cannot seem to reach the installer. I’ve been trying all summer and fall, and as cold weather approaches would certainly like to be able to program it to warm up before anyone in the household has to get up in the cold! Can you help?
ANSWER : Hi,
The t-stat you have is a Honeywell TH8321U1055 That probably is an OEM number but will program the same as any TH8321U t-stat….

Here is a tip that I wrote about that t-stat…
