Good old' Eci cylinders are doing what they do best.... separating head-to-barrel on their cylinders. We have a newly overhauled engine 160 hp engine (15.7 hours) on it with new ECi cylinders. We caught it before anything happen but the next thing is that your thinking, just send them off for warranty. lol. What warranty?
So we jump through hoops, filled out all the paper work. Then waited for a phone call back and we got one telling us that the cylinders that were bought in '05 are not covered under the warranty. The cylinders sat on the shelf till we had all the parts to build the engine, so with that in mind, "Its been too long for installation of cylinders and we cannot warranty the cylinders." "You can send them to us so we can inspect them and make any repairs as need." This will make the second time we had to deal with cylinders separating from head to barrel problem. If one does it then when will the other three? Thanks ECi! NEW Lycomings cylinders are on there way.
