Limbach Service Stations are operating in 23 countries, and the service net is being expanded continually.
Masschi Motors - The "Masschi 105" is a four stroke four cylinder. We have chosen for a liquid cooled engine as difficulties encountered with air cooled engines are well known -- temperature and stress levels are much higher. This together with the Nikasil threaded cylinders and German Racing Pistons gives very much confidence to reliability. Compactness of this flat head aero engine gives the opportunity to incorporate into sleek narrow cowlings.
Needleye Engines - Needleye engine company manufactures a twin cylinder four cycle aircooled engine for light aircraft. The engine can be used in either tractor or pusher configurations. The engine is 100 cubic inches or 1660 cubic centimeters and produces 52 horsepower at 2750 rpm.

If you have not, click on the GUESTBOOK navigation button; send us your information including mailing address, and attach a picture of your aircraft if possible, and we'll send your free button.
Rotary Aircraft Engines - Why is a new rotary engine a better choice for aircraft? These engines are specifically manufactured for aviation. This is not an automobile engine conversion. They have dual spark plugs per each rotor, dual ignition, altitude compensating electronic engine management with fuel injection, and full in-flight engine monitoring. They are water cooled, and have metered oil injection so that they are always running on clean oil. They were designed for flying and designed to keep flying.

With fully electronic variable timing ignition and multipoint fuel injection, the UL260i is the better alternative to existing "old technology" aircraft engines. Even as a direct drive, low rpm engine, it has an excellent power to weight ratio.
Valley Engineering - The engine is a Four-Cycle, two-cylinder, 990cc, V-Twin developing 38 hp at 3600 rpm. With a Valley Engineering PSRU and Culver prop, it will do everything and more that the current smaller two-cylinder, two-cycle engines do. All this with the reliability, low rpms, smooth operation, fuel economy and throaty sound of a four-cycle engine.
Verner Motor - New engine available. Engine VM 133S with one BING carburator for simpler installation and better fuel consumption.
Wilksch Airmotive - Wilksch Airmotive's design team has combined new technologies and packaging with a 2-stroke "diesel" (C.I.) operating cycle. Because the concept uses a robust four stroke style multi-valve cylinder head, valve timing can be optimized allowing a turbocharger to provide scavenging and boost over the whole power range. Use of the 2-stroke cycle allows high power outputs to be achieved without the need for a reduction drive.
Zanzottera Technologies - Born in 1982 Zanzottera Engines is a company dedicated to the design, development and production of piston engines for the propulsion of small and medium sized Uav's.
Zoche Aero-Diesels - The Diesel engine has demonstrated the lowest specific fuel consumption of any prime mover (as low as .26 lb/hp hr for very large 2-stroke marine Diesels). It uses fuel which is much cheaper and still contains more energy per gallon than gasoline or avgas. Decades ago there were several Diesel aircraft engines (built by Guiberson, Packard, Rolls-Royce, Clerget, Fiat and others). In the 1930´s the Junkers "Jumo 205" supercharged 2-stroke Diesel was used...
