AD NUMBER: 2008-14-07
MANUFACTURER: Textron Lycoming
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-14-07
SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing
airworthiness directive (AD) for certain fuel injected
reciprocating engines manufactured by Lycoming Engines.
That AD currently requires inspection,and replacement if
necessary, of externally mounted fuel injector fuel lines. This AD
requires the same actions but adds additional engine models and
clarifies certain compliance time wording.
This AD also exempts engines that have a Maintenance and
Overhaul Manual with an Airworthiness Limitations Section that
requires inspection and replacement, if necessary, of externally
mounted fuel injector lines. This AD results from Lycoming Engines
revising their Mandatory Service Bulletin to add new engine models
requiring inspection, and from the need to clarify a repetitive
inspection compliance time.
We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the fuel injector
fuel lines that would allow fuel to spray into the engine
compartment, resulting in an engine fire.
