Mike | Engine Rebuild Class
Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend an engine rebuild class at Teledyne Mattituck Services Inc. in Mattituck, Long Island, NY. Each year they hold this class for those who wish to attendâ€¦â€¦at no chargeâ€¦
The day started off at 8am with coffee and donuts and a crankshaft. As the day progressed John had built up a complete engine. Many questions, many answers. The wealth of knowledge was unbelievable.
John and Mahlon put on a great class. My hat is off to both of you.

Mike | 2010 Class now open
Sometime ago, you asked to be kept informed about the next TMX engine workshop we will be hosting here at Mattituck Airport (21N) this winter. Well, a date has been selected for the workshop. You requested to be kept informed of the date, so you could make plans to attend.
The next workshop will be held Saturday March 13, 2010.
The plan would be to start the day of at 8:00 AM with a short coffee, donut, pastry type breakfast with informal registration and introductions. At 8:30 or so, we would start the class and continue until lunch time when we will break for a sandwich, soda, chips type lunch. After lunch we would continue the class until approximately 3:30-4:00 PM. At that time, there will be an optional tour of the facility and we will test run an engine in one of our two test cells.
Breakfast, lunch and any thing you need to participate will be supplied by Teledyne Mattituck Services. All you need do, is let us know ahead of time, that you are planning to attend and show up to enjoy the class and tours. There will be no charge for any of the activities or classes. At anytime during the day, we will be available to informally discuss any engine related procedures, issues or troubleshooting techniques that you may have questions about, in addition to the formal engine assembly workshop which will incorporate the actual assembly of a four cylinder TMX O-360. During the workshop, we will be pointing out all of the benefits we incorporate into our engines, as well as, everything you need to know about prepping an engine for assembly and assembling a four cylinder Lycoming engine correctly.
If your plans are such that you might want to stay overnight, either before or after the workshop we would be happy to supply you with local motel information and provide transportation to and from the motel to the airport for the workshop. As well, if you might be flying in commercially, for the occasion, the best airport to do that into is Long Island Islip MacArthur Airport (ISP). Service is available from Southwest and Delta. If you are arriving on Friday or departing late Saturday or on Sunday, after the seminar, we would be able to provide transportation to and from Islip. Or if you prefer you can rent a car at Islip and provide your own transportation. It is about a 45 minute drive from Islip to Mattituck.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend the workshop! If you’re planning to attend, we simply ask you to reply to this email at my email address of firstname.lastname@example.org , advising us your email address, full name and a daytime phone number you can be reached at. We will take it from there. We will be limiting the class to approximately 50 participants, so that every one who attends has the opportunity to get the full benefit of the instruction. I am sure that the allocated spots will fill up quickly, so please get back to me as soon as possible to guarantee that you will have the opportunity to attend.
Hope to be hearing from you soon!
