    ING).

(e) UNSAFE CONDITION

    This AD was prompted by a report of a manufacturing quality escape  of
    improperly lubricated roller  bearings installed in  certain magnetos,
    which  may  result in  overheating  and magneto  seizure.  The FAA  is
    issuing  this  AD  to  prevent  failure  of  the  magneto.  The unsafe
    condition, if not  addressed, could result  in failure of  one or more
    engines, in-flight shutdown, and loss of the airplane.

(f) COMPLIANCE

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified,  unless al-
    ready done.

(g) REQUIRED ACTIONS

    For any  affected magneto,  within 25  operating hours time-in-service
    (TIS)  or,  if  any  affected magneto  has  accumulated  more  than 25
    operating hours TIS, before further flight after the effective date of
    this AD:

(1) Remove the affected magneto  from  the  engine and replace with a part
    eligible for installation  in  accordance  with the Corrective Action,
    paragraph III.A., of Continental Aerospace Technologies Critical Serv-
    ice Bulletin CSB673, Revision C, dated May 24, 2022 (the CSB); or

(2) Remove the affected magneto  from the engine  and disassemble  and in-
    spect the affected magneto  in  accordance with the Corrective Action,
    paragraphs III.B.1. through III.B.8.a., of the CSB.

    the magneto components, as applicable,  in accordance with the Correc-
    tive Action, paragraphs III.B.8.b.1 and III.B.8.b.2, of the CSB. Where
    the CSB specifies discarding the roller bearing,  this AD  instead re-
    quires removing the roller bearing from service.

(ii) Reassemble and install the magneto  in accordance with the Corrective
     Action, paragraph III.C., of the CSB.

(h) INSTALLATION PROHIBITION

    After the effective date of this AD, do not install onto any engine an
    S-1200 series magneto having a S/N between F21EA057 and F21KA009R, in-
    clusive, manufactured and sold between  May and November 2021; or  any
    S-1200 series magneto authorized by Continental Aerospace Technologies

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The FAA received a report from Continental Aerospace Technologies,
Inc., of a manufacturing quality escape that identified a certain
population of magnetos that did not meet the design specification due
to improperly lubricated roller bearings. The supplier notified the
manufacturer that roller bearings installed in certain magnetos were
delivered with a light corrosion preventive lubricant instead of the
specified translucent white grease. Analysis by the manufacturer
determined that affected magnetos assembled without the properly
lubricated roller bearing have the potential to overheat, causing
accelerated wear in the contact and cam follower. As a result of its
analysis, the manufacturer published service information that specifies
procedures for the removal and replacement of the affected magneto or
inspection of the affected magneto and, if no white grease is detected,
replacement of magneto components, as applicable, and reassembly of the
magneto. This condition, if not addressed, could result in failure of
one or more engines, in-flight shutdown, and loss of the airplane. The
FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these
products.

FAA's Determination

The FAA is issuing this AD because the agency has determined the
unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in
other products of the same type design.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

The FAA reviewed Continental Aerospace Technologies Critical
Service Bulletin CSB673, Revision C, dated May 24, 2022 (the CSB). The
CSB specifies procedures for removing and replacing affected magneto or
inspecting affected magneto and, if no white grease is detected,
replacing magneto components, as applicable, and reassembling the
magneto. This CSB also specifies procedures for returning certain parts
to the manufacturer for warranty replacement. This service information
is reasonably available because the interested parties have access to
it through their normal course of business or by the means identified
in ADDRESSES.

AD Requirements

This AD requires the replacement of the affected magneto or
inspection of the affected magneto and, if no white grease is detected,
replacement of magneto components, as applicable, and reassembly of the
magneto.

Clarification of Requirements

The CSB specifies procedures to return certain parts to the
manufacturer for warranty replacement. However, this AD does not
require returning parts to the manufacturer. The CSB also specifies to
discard the roller bearing after the roller bearing has been pressed
out of the magneto housing. This AD does not require discarding the
roller bearing.

Justification for Immediate Adoption and Determination of the Effective
Date


Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5
U.S.C. 551 et seq.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and
comment procedures for rules when the agency, for ``good cause,'' finds
that those procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to
the public interest.'' Under this section, an agency, upon finding good
cause, may issue a final rule without providing notice and seeking
comment prior to issuance. Further, section 553(d) of the APA
authorizes agencies to make rules effective in less than thirty days,
upon a finding of good cause.
An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of
this AD without providing an opportunity for public comments prior to
adoption. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public
justifies foregoing notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule
because affected magnetos assembled without properly lubricated roller
bearings have the potential to overheat, causing accelerated wear in
the contact and cam follower that could lead to seizure and failure of
the magnetos. Since an engine may contain two affected magnetos, there
is a possibility of failure of one or more engines and loss of the
airplane due to loss of ignition. The FAA considers replacement or
inspection of the affected magneto to be an urgent safety issue.
Replacement or inspection of the affected magneto must be accomplished
within 25 operating hours time-in-service (TIS) or, if any affected
magneto has accumulated more than 25 operating hours TIS, before
further flight after the effective date of this AD. Accordingly, notice
and opportunity for prior public comment are impracticable and contrary
to the public interest pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).
In addition, the FAA finds that good cause exists pursuant to 5
U.S.C. 553(d) for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days,
for the same reasons the FAA found good cause to forego notice and
comment.

Comments Invited

The FAA invites you to send any written data, views, or arguments
about this final rule. Send your comments to an address listed under
ADDRESSES. Include ``FAA-2022-0983 and Project Identifier AD-2022-
00614-E'' at the beginning of your comments. The most helpful comments
reference a specific portion of the final rule, explain the reason for
any recommended change, and include supporting data. The FAA will
consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this
final rule because of those comments.
Except for Confidential Business Information (CBI) as described in
the following paragraph, and other information as described in 14 CFR
11.35, the FAA will post all comments received, without change, to
www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide.
The agency will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal
contact received about this final rule.

Confidential Business Information

CBI is commercial or financial information that is both customarily
and actually treated as private by its owner. Under the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552), CBI is exempt from public
disclosure. If your comments responsive to this AD contain commercial
or financial information that is customarily treated as private, that
you actually treat as private, and that is relevant or responsive to
this AD, it is important that you clearly designate the submitted
comments as CBI. Please mark each page of your submission containing
CBI as ``PROPIN.'' The FAA will treat such marked submissions as
confidential under the FOIA, and they will not be placed in the public
docket of this AD. Submissions containing CBI should be sent to Boyce
Jones, Aviation Safety Engineer, Atlanta ACO, FAA, 1701 Columbia
Avenue, College Park, GA 30337. Any commentary that the FAA receives
which is not specifically designated as CBI will be placed in the
public docket for this rulemaking.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

The requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) do not
apply when an agency finds good cause pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 to adopt
a rule without prior notice and comment. Because FAA has determined
that it has good cause to adopt this rule without prior notice and
comment, RFA analysis is not required.

Costs of Compliance

The FAA estimates that this AD could affect up to 740 magnetos
installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA has no way of
determining the number of operators that will remove the affected
magneto and replace it with a part eligible for installation or, in
lieu of replacing, disassemble, inspect and replace magneto components.
The FAA's estimated cost on U.S. operators reflects the maximum
possible cost based on the 740 affected magnetos installed on products
of U.S. registry.
The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this AD:

Estimated Costs

Action Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Cost on U.S. operators
Remove and replace the affected magneto 1.5 work-hours x $85 per hour = $127.50 $1,600 $1,727.50 Up to $1,278,350
Remove, disassemble, and inspect affected magneto 1 work-hour x $85 per hour = $85 0 85 Up to $62,900

The FAA estimates the following costs to replace magneto
components. The agency has no way of determining the number of aircraft
that might need this replacement:

On-Condition Costs

Action
Labor cost
Parts cost
Cost per product
Replace magneto components .25 work-hours x $85 per hour = $21.25
$20
$41.25
Reassemble and install magneto 1 work-hour x $85 per hour = $85
0
170

The FAA has included all known costs in its cost estimate.
According to the manufacturer, however, some of the costs of this AD
may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on
affected operators.

Authority for This Rulemaking

Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the
authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs
describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's authority.
The FAA is issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General requirements.
Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight
of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for
practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary
for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that
authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to
exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

This AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order
13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States,
on the relationship between the national government and the States, or
on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various
levels of government.
For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD:
(1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive
Order 12866, and
(2) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska.
