  In AEIO-360 engines that do not have a solid crankshaft, AD 84-13-5
specifies visual inspection of the crankshaft flange every 25 hours time in
service or a Magnaflux inspection every 100 hours time in service.  This
inspection requires removing the prop.  I have been told that it takes about
6 hrs to do this inspection. 

I'd appreciate information on experience with complying with this
AD--relative costs of the two methods, availablity of the portable Magnaflux
method, and any other relevant information.
