Hi we are looking for a Lycoming 0-480 aero engine as fitted we understand to Beech Baron,Queen Air and DO27A among other types. The aircraft is wanted for a museum display aircraft so log cards or documentation is not needed many thanks. Mike

I think you may need to refine your search criteria. As far as I am aware, there never was an O-480. There was a GO-480 and a GSO-480, but no O-480. THe GSO-480 was fitted to some Aero Commanders, Beech Queenairs and Twin Bonanzas, as well as Piaggio P-166's, Dornier 27's and Pilatus Porters. I am not aware of any Barons ever being fitted with GO-480's or GSO-480's. Most had Continental IO-470's or IO-520's (later IO-550's) and the 56TC models had Lycoming TIO-541's. What type of aircraft are you seeking it for?

Hi Thanks The engine we need is actualy a GSO-480 as fitted to the Soko J20 Kraguj The engine is also fitted to the UA66. Only going off what we have been told for aircraft that carried the engine but a GO-480 would do. But definately understand the DO27A was fitted with one not sure of other aircraft applications. The aircraft is not flyable and for at best for the moment ground running if at all possible bu thats a long way off. So condition of engine not important probably a time ex engine with no logs ideal.

Try Paul Nelson, in Caterham he is an aircraft breaker and may have one on the shelf. I believe his number is: 01883 340062.
