Default Lycoming Model designations

Hello folks,

I am looking for a chart that identifies the major differences between the various models of Lycs.

Thanks

I did a quick google search on "Lycoming engine designations".

Here are some links the search returned:

This is probably the one that would give you the most insight into how Lycoming designates engines:

read 2 or 3 posts down on this to find some info on designations:

Another source:

Here is Wikipedia's information:

SSP 204 was current when Mahlon posted this. Several months later, Lycoming superceded SSP 204 with SSP 108 (December 2008). See
