Thank you for your valued counsel regarding our IO-550B68B engine, and for the measures that were undertaken to resolve a potential problem with the fuel delivery system. It was good to be in the safe hands of the men at your Fairhope, Alabama facility....Thank you for your kind assistance that has been so appreciated over the years. Dr. Joseph Hudson
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 wanted to take a moment and express my thanks for hosting the Bonanza Operator's Seminar and Fly-in at your facilities in Fairhope and Mobile. We had a great time and while the sessions were oriented towards owners as opposed to technicians, I can say that I walked away with more knowledge about your engines and products than I arrived with.
You did a fantastic job of presenting the material in a fashion such that was easy to comprehend and not too technical for the average pilot. You also have a great facility, friendly staff, and your products are absolutely great. We fly a Bonanza with your engine for AOG work; it hasn't given us any trouble at all. “
