Default Mattituck TMX IO-540 Question

Would anyone have any specific details on a 2008 TMX IO-540 from Mattituck?

Since they have dissolved the build records have disappeared according to Teledyne Continental.

Just wondering what would be the most similiar configuration of it to a standard build IO-540-????

Thanks.

What information are you looking for? I have one, but it has been top overhauled with Millenium cylinders and pistons. I have some of the original Mattituck documentation that I got when I bought it from the original owner.

P.S. this one was originally built in 2009.

Hello 1001001,


I guess I have two questions you may be able to help with.

Is there anything from Mattituck that states what the closest build of an IO-540 could be?

It's their Experimental TMXIO-540 but is there a close comparable to all of the versions of the certificated Lycoming IO-540? Maybe Mattituck has something buried in the original build sheet.

Secondly, are you aware of any ADs on the case or lower end?

I guess I'm in the dark on camshaft and crankshaft part numbers for now.

Too bad they didn't make the records available.

Check your cylinders to see if they are the AD category ECI cylinders.

Thanks...

The top is only a year old and not ECi.
At least thats one major AD that doesn't apply.

Well technically speaking, a ďTMXĒ engine is Experimental, it has no TCDS, so it isnít really possible to have an AD against it. Now there could be ADís against an extremely similar engine, and those would be good to look at - but if we are cutting regulatory language razor thin, you wonít find any ADís against the engine.

As pointed out above - Mahlon is probably your best source of info.

Thanks Paul,

I am just trying to see which build it would compare to and, while of course ADs don't apply, I certainly would like to be aware of any defects that parts may have.

True,,,itís experimental so no ADís apply. But you certainly donít want those cylinders effected by the AD on your EXP engine.
