The Use of Lycoming LW-16702 Oil Additive


Supersedes Service Bulletin No. 446D

Lycoming O­320­H, O­360­E, LO­360­E, TO­360­E and LTO­360­E series engines.


At next engine oil change and at every 50 hours and at every oil change  thereafter.

Laboratory tests indicate that occasionally when the engine is first started, for a very brief interval there is insufficient residual oil between the rubbing parts which affects the service life of components. Lycoming  has evaluated an agent which, when added to the normal oil supply, deters scuffing under these conditions.
