Continuous improvements in manufacturing technology and advanced statistical process control have enabled Continental Motors to hone in on the center of the tolerance band.
CYLINDER BARRELS start out as high grade aircraft quality, through-hardened 4140 forged steel. Then the cylinder bores, for our higher horsepower engines (300-500 series), go through a case hardening nitride process which gives the cylinder barrels excellent resistance to wear and greater durability at higher temperatures.

CYLINDER HEADS are machined on computer controlled machining centers. Custom designed computer controlled equipment is used in the assembly of the critical head to barrel joint.Features
PISTONS are designed to be extremely wear resistant.Features
“I was overwhelmed by the warm, southern welcome received when the Ninety-Nines toured the Continental Motors factory. You all were so gracious and inviting and treated us royally. Thank you for the graciousness and informative presentation. My mind is still spinning from all of the information that was packed into the culminating hour-long seminar. Our pilots would love to have had the opportunity I had to see the plant and hear about maintaining engine longevity.“
