In the third column, in the SUMMARY section, in the 14th line, after the words “propeller strike.”, a sentence is added to read “This AD removes the requirement to perform inspections at overhaul and during repair of the gear train, because Lycoming has incorporated those procedures from their Service Bulletin into their Overhaul Manual.”

On page 29211, in the second column, after the second paragraph, add the following paragraph:

Other Corrections

The TO-360-E engine model was inadvertently omitted from the list of exceptions of engines. That engine model has been added to the list of exceptions of engines not affected by this AD. Also, some of the engine model numbers were missing dashes and are corrected in this AD. Also, the phrase of after the effective date of this AD, was inadvertently omitted from paragraph (e). This phrase is added to paragraph (e) to cover engines that experience a propeller strike after the effective date of the AD.
