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.
