    Rejected case

    Good morning,
    We just received the bad news that our IO-360 A2B case was rejected. Any
    leads or suggestions on a replacement?

    Who is saying that the case is non-repairable? DIVCO can repair almost any case problem (link below). All the major overhaulers use them. If your overhaul is being done by some local shop, perhaps they are unaware?

    They show Lycoming IO360 cases in stock, if you really do need an actual replacement, rather than a repair.

    Chuck Ney Enterprises in Tulsa is used by a lot of shops for crankcase repair. If the case is beyond repair (as was mine), he can get you a very good price on a new one, and he has used, repaired cases in stock.

    Hi Mike and all,
    Actually, Divco is the one saying that the case is rejected. Evidently it had been trued once before and they say that it is too thin to mill down again. I ended up buying a refurbished case from them for $2800 and sold the rejected one to Air Support for $200 where he said he could use the case to build an engine for an airboat.

    For what it's worth, you can get a brand new case from Superior (the people who make Millenium Cylinders) for $2900, with a trade-in of the old case.

    Oops, looks like I moved too fast. I have already agreed to purchase the one from Divco and sell the one to Air Support. It would be bad enough to break my word once, but certainly not twice.
    Thanks,
    John
