Airworthiness Directives: Lycoming AD inspection of connecting rods and small end bushings

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain models of Lycoming
Engines reciprocating engines. This AD requires an inspection of connecting rods and replacement of
affected connecting rod small end bushings. This AD was prompted by several reports of connecting
rod failures resulting in uncontained engine failure and in-flight shutdowns (IFSDs). We are issuing
this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
