  Hi all,

As far as the AD for the AEIO 360 crankshaft is concerned, dye
penetrant checking is not acceptable.  As I recall it, the
AD asks specifically for Magnaflux if you want to do it only
every 100 hours.  You can use dye penetrant testing in
combination with visual insoections, but you need to do it
every 25 hours.
