I decided to wait to re-assemble the engine at this time.... I plan to purchase the required overhaul parts over the next 12 months. I plan to go with "Wide" cases... That means I will have to purchase a new Cam Kit, New Cylinder Kits, etc. I will spread it out.... It will only take 3 days to assemble the engine. Better vacuum bad the parts in prep for assembly, than try to pickle the whole engine for 2 years. I will be sending out my connecting rods, gears for inspection / overhaul through the remainder of the year.
The cases are being shipped this week... From Chuck Ney Enterprises out of Tulsa OK. The cases are equipped with the STC "Ney Nozzles" That spray oil directly on the cam.
FAA approved installation of "The Ney Nozzle" in all Lycoming crankcases. Provides a constant stream of oil on the cam lobes after 1 revolution of the crankshaft.
