Cessna: 172R; Torn Cowling Lord Mounts; ATA 5400

“During a routine, 100 hour inspection,” writes this mechanic, “two of the ‘Lord’ cowling mounts that secure the lower engine cowling to the airframe were found torn in half (P/N J-7444-42). This is a recurring problem on all 13 C-172R and S model aircraft operated by a local flight school. If not corrected, this could lead to a loss of the engine cowling in flight.” (There are approximately six additional data base entries related to cowling mounts.)

Part Total Time: (less than) 100 hours.
