Zero-Time Rebuilt Engines
The Zero-Time, High Quality, Cost Effective Alternative
During the rebuilding process, those parts specified for automatic removal are replaced with brand-new Lycoming parts. Any reusable parts are rigorously inspected to verify conformity with new part tolerances or limits.
The engine is then reassembled with all new cylinder assemblies, including barrels, heads, pistons, rings, piston pins and plugs, intake and exhaust valves, springs, guides, seats and gaskets.
Then - just as with a new Lycoming - the rebuilt engine is tested to factory specifications to be sure it’s up to the performance standards of a new engine.
When your rebuilt Lycoming is installed, it will have a new "zero-time" log book provided by the factory, and the same two-year warranty and recommended TBO as a new Lycoming engine. And the factory warranty will be honored at any authorized Lycoming Distributor worldwide.
As an added long-term benefit, your rebuilt engine will be capable of being overhauled when it reaches TBO.
As with other Lycoming exchange engine sales, the price you're quoted for a zero-time rebuild is the price you'll pay. There are no upcharges, no chargebacks, and no penalties for complete, assembled, active and operable exchange engine cores returned within the generous 4 months allowed.
The term "zero-time rebuilt" is used by Lycoming to describe a rebuilt piston engine. The definition is approved by the FAA, and is not intended to contradict any authorized manual, or any FAR or FAA authorized publication.
