|Date issued:||20 November 2007|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The engine manufacturer did not provide sufficient guidance for monitoring the fatigue life of the gudgeon pin or for inspecting the gudgeon pin for early signs of impending failure.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that SEMT Pielstick, and its licensees, take action to address this safety issue.
