Superior Air Parts is a leader in procuring and distributing extra parts for the popular Lycoming and Continental engines. Their other pursuits include:
Recently the company has chosen to bump up their product offers by delving into the world of cylinders and choosing to offer their customers Continental ready 0-170/A65 cylinders. This statement was given earlier in the year by Superior Air Parts head of their Sales, as well as their Marketing, department.
These new cylinders are fresh from the factory and come with a manufacture stamp of approval. While this cylinder did fall out of production there was enough pressure put on the manufacturer to force the cylinder back into production. The main customer for these cylinders are re-builders who are starting to restore classic planes who go to work on their cylinders and find that they are too far gone to fix. The need for new cylinders was so great that they have bound to re-hit the market.
The set that Superior Air Parts sell provides the customer with everything they could need to produce four, fully functioning, brand new cylinders. This kit hit the market at $5,895 to a hungry audience willing to shell out whatever money it took to get their hands on parts they had been hunting for, for months. The resurgence of these cores shows that if something has a high enough demand there is always a chance it could be brought back.
