TIME OF COMPLIANCE

Next oil change or next 50-hour inspection.

Lycoming has determined that some oil sumps made from C56B19855 castings may have a casting void (hole) in the oil suction screen area (see Figure 1.) This casting void can result in a decrease in oil pressure during some maneuvers and/or low oil levels.
