AD on Turbochargers for both Continental and Lycoming Engines

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

The FAA is superseding airworthiness directive 2013-21-02 (AD) 2012-24-09 for Lycoming Engines TIO-540-AK1A, and Continental Motors, Inc. (CMI) TSIO-360-MB, TSIO-360-SB, and TSIO-360-RB reciprocating engines, with certain Hartzell Engine Technologies (HET) turbochargers, model TA0411, installed. AD 2012-24-09 required removing certain HET turbochargers from service before further flight. This AD also requires removing certain HET turbochargers from service before further flight. This AD was prompted by a report that an additional engine, the CMI LTSIO-360-RB, has the affected HET turbochargers installed. We are issuing this AD to prevent turbocharger turbine wheel failure, reduction or complete loss of engine power, loss of engine oil, oil fire, and damage to the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective November 13, 2013. pdf icon 2013-21-02.pdf

FAA Correction to AD on Turbocharger turbine wheel on Continental and Lycoming Engines

Monday, January 14th, 2013

The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) 2012-24-09 that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to Lycoming Engines TSIO-540-AK1A, and Continental Motors, Inc. TSIO-360-MB, TSIO-360-SB, and TSIO-360-RB reciprocating engines, with certain Hartzell Engine Technologies (HET) turbochargers, model TA0411, part number 466642-0001; 466642-0002; 466642-0006; 466642-9001; 466642-9002; or 466642-9006, or with certain HET model TA0411 turbochargers overhauled or repaired since August 29, 2012. The Summary paragraph and the Applicability paragraph list an incorrect engine model for Lycoming Engines. This document corrects those errors. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.

DATES: This final rule is effective January 14, 2013. The effective date for AD 2012-24-09 (77 FR 72203, December 5, 2012) remains December 20, 2012.
