Powering Your Plane: Installing a Lycoming-Type Engine in Your Experimental Amateur-Built Airplane (EAA How-To Series) by David P. Prizio
"Powering Your Plane" by Dave Prizio is a book that will help readers correctly install a Lycoming-type engine. It covers each step of the engine installation process, including selecting an engine for your project, firewall construction, plumbing, electrical, preparing for your first engine start, and more. By focusing just on Lycoming and similar engines, such as those by Superior and Continental ECi, the author is able to go into great detail about the types of engine installations that most builders use.
Prizio's book has numerous illustrations and photos to help builders maneuver through the challenges and intricacies of engine installation. EAA member Dick Koehler, a Tony Bingelis Award winner for his contributions to the homebuilding community, assisted with the technical editing.
Prizio is an experienced aircraft builder, an FAA DAR, and member of EAA's Homebuilt Aircraft Council. His book builds on EAA's easy-to-follow guides written by the late Tony Bingelis 30 years ago, which became the definitive how-to manuals for aircraft building and are still available through EAA.
