Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Engine Saved from Extinction

San Antonio, TX
Tuesday, April 27, 1999

Engine Components, Inc. is proud to announce to the industry it has received FAA/PMA approval for the manufacture of new replacement cylinders for the P & W R-1340 series engines. Combining the time honored tradition of sand casting with an upgraded A242-T76 casting alloy (which is the same alloy used on many later built Pratt & Whitney cylinder heads) and specifying the casting quality in structural sections to be equivalent to Mil-Std-2175 Class 1, Grade B ensures the highest possible standards for complex aluminum alloy castings. ECi's design incorporates the OEM "Heavy Head" configuration and maintains structural sections to high limits for optimum fatigue life. To address the skirt flange cracking problem which has plagued overhauled cylinders in recent years, the skirt relief has been eliminated. These new replacement cylinders are available with through-hardened Pratt & Whitney style Airmotive™ steel barrels. The castings are produced under radiographic control to appropriate plates in ASTM E-155 while machining is accomplished on state-of-the-art CNC machining centers to provide a level of design conformity that equals or exceeds the original production cylinder. The ECi R-1340 cylinder for Pratt & Whitney engines will be distributed exclusively by ECi and Sun Air Parts of Valencia, California and their appointed dealers.
