RUN, Do Not Walk... Factory Rebuilt Engine Deal Ends August 31,
GA's engine builders are in a bargaining mood and we're all the
better for it. A case in point, until August 31, 2009, Lycoming is
now offering zero-time factory-rebuilt Lycoming engines to select
pilots and owners at the price of a Lycoming factory overhaul.
Lycoming notes that it's factory-rebuilt engines are built to the
same limits as a new engine. They come with a zero-time logbook,
just as their all-new counterparts. Best of all, they have the same
two-year warranty as an all-new engine.
"We recognize that many owners may be nervous about the economy
and so they are putting off new purchases in favor of overhauls,"
says Todd Stoner, Lycoming vice president of marketing and sales.
"We are going to repay a select group of them for their commitment
to genuine Lycoming parts and service by upgrading their overhaul
service to a much more valuable commodity."
The amount of savings depends on the engine type, but on most
engine types the savings surpass $3,000 (US) of the manufacturer's
suggested retail price. A table comparing new, factory-rebuilt and
overhaul prices is available at www.lycoming.com

This offer requires the return of a Lycoming factory new or
rebuilt engine that has never been overhauled, otherwise known in
the industry as a "first-run core."
