Lycoming has learned that all new, overhauled, rebuilt, or repaired engines with a Precision Airmotive or Bendix RSA-5, RSA-10 series fuel injection servo, or a Precision Airmotive Silverhawk EX Fuel Injection Kit installed since August 22, 2006 may have a loose brass hex plug. A loose plug will allow a leak which may have an effect on engine performance. If the plug completely falls out of the regulator cover, a loss of engine power will result.
