Like the poster in #13, I have an ECI Titan motor from America's Aircraft Engines.
I am trying to figure out if this A/D is applicable, because my motor was built in November of 2007.
Right in the beginning of the A/D, it says, "If your engine has not been overhauled, or not had any cylinder assemblies replaced since new, no further action is required."
I know that my engine has NOT been overhauled or had cylinders replaced since it was new. Am I overthinking this, since I know I have ECI nickel cylinders from the years this was a problem?
Bit confusing but I think the statement assumes a new genuine Lycoming engine with genuine Lycoming cylinders. Regardless you need to check if your individual ECI cylinder serial numbers are listed in the AD. (AD 2009-26-12)
I had group A cylinders that were OK till about 1,100 hrs when the rings were found to be delaminating (ECI S.I. No 06-6)
