All-in-one geared electric Pre-OilerANDBack-Up Engine Oil Pump ( a logical MUST HAVE for *ALL* kinds and types of engines, not just for aircraft and jet engines ). Besides aircraft, used in boats, sail boats, speed boats, race cars, pick-ups, cars, semi trucks, Tractor Pull vehicles, military vehicles, and much more!
The average pilot, including airline pilots, fly on average only 40 hours per year ! Lycoming has an AD that says your engine begins to rust on the inside after only 2 days !! The closer you can get your engine to a 2000+ hour TBO, the lower your cost per flight hour will be. The ONLY way you will achieve this is to Pre-Oil your engine before Engine Start !!! This goes for ANY engine — engines in boats, sail boats, speed boats, race cars, pick-ups, cars, semi trucks, Tractor Pull vehicles, military aircraft and vehicles, and much more !!! Also, you should run your Pre-Oiler at least weekly (probably more — use a timer like used for batteries) even if you don’t start your engine to keep things lubed all over. Also, you should have spray nozzles for your cam &/or a hollow cam for your Lycoming. Also, an old, very experienced, IA told me once that you should keep your engine warmed up to 60+ degrees all the time year round. More info: once the pump is primed for 1st use, you do not need to prime it again because it self primes even when sitting for 5+ years. No trouble drawing as much as 5′ vertical from source, and has been used around hot engines for 20+ years without a failure — the o-rings are made of Viton and are good to 400 degrees F.
For certified aircraft, you simply get a FAA Field Approval / 337 .
