The **Lycoming O-320** is a large family of naturally aspirated, air-cooled, four-cylinder, direct-drive engines produced by Lycoming Engines. They are commonly used on light aircraft such as the Cessna 172 and Piper Cherokee. Different variants are rated for 150 or 160 horsepower (112 or 119 kilowatts). As implied by the engine's name, its cylinders are arranged in horizontally opposed configuration and a displacement of 320 cubic inches (5.24 L).^{[1]}

## Design and development

The O-320 family of engines includes the carbureted O-320, the fuel-injected IO-320, the inverted mount, fuel-injected AIO-320 and the aerobatic, fuel-injected AEIO-320 series. The LIO-320 is a "left-handed" version with the crankshaft rotating in the opposite direction for use on twin-engined aircraft to eliminate the critical engine.^{[2]}^{[3]}

The first O-320 (with no suffix) was FAA certified on 28 July 1953 to CAR 13 effective 5 March 1952; this same engine was later re-designated, without change, as the O-320-A1A.^{[2]} The first IO-320 was certified on 10 April 1961, with the AIO-320 following on 23 June 1969 and the first aerobatic AEIO-320 on 12 April 1974. The LIO-320s were both certified on 28 August 1969.^{[2]}^{[3]}

The O-320 family of engines externally resembles the Lycoming O-235 and O-290 family from which they were derived. The O-320 shares the same 3.875 in (98 mm) stroke as the smaller engines, but produces more power with the bore increased to 5.125 in (130 mm). The design uses hydraulic tappets and incorporates the provisions for a hydraulically controlled propeller installation as well. The controllable-pitch propeller models use a different crankshaft from those intended for fixed-pitch propellers.^{[4]}

The O-320 uses a conventional wet sump system for lubrication. The main bearings, connecting rods, camshaft bearings, tappets and pushrods are all pressure lubricated, while the piston pins, cylinder walls and gears are all lubricated by spray. The oil system is pressurized by an accessory-drive mounted oil pump. A remotely mounted oil cooler is used, connected to the engine by flexible hoses.^{[4]}

The 150 hp (112 kW) versions of the carbureted O-320, are approved for the use of 87 AKI automotive gasoline. Models with 9.0:1 compression ratio are not approved, such as the H2AD model. All other 160 hp (119 kW) 0-320s are approved for 91 AKI. Airframe approval is also necessary to use automotive gasoline in any certified aircraft.^{[5]}

The factory retail price of the O-320 varies by model. In 2010 the retail price of an O-320-B1A purchased outright was USD$47,076^{[6]}

^{[2]}This was the troublesome engine that was installed on the 1977 to 1980 Cessna 172N Skyhawk.^{[7]}It was notable from all other Lycoming models by incorporating hydraulic lifters that were barrel shaped instead of mushroom type, in an attempt to make the lifters possible to be serviced without having to disassemble the entire engine case, but the higher load on the cam lobes resulted in severe spalling. Multiple service bulletins and airworthiness directives have been issued regarding this specific model, and multiple modifications exist to attempt to mitigate its design defects.^{[8]}^{[9]}^{[10]} - O-320-H2BD
