Genuine Lycoming Roller Tappets are a testament to Lycoming's investment in innovative solutions that decrease wear characteristics compared to a traditional, flat tappet Lycoming engine. By eliminating the sliding motion between the camshaft and the tappet, the roller tappet technology maintains alignment so the roller tappet cannot loosen or turn during engine use. Thus, this technology adds durability to your Lycoming engine.
Lycoming automatically upgrade eligible engines to their roller tappet technology at NO ADDITIONAL COST.
