    Actually, based on his engine, it has the correct bushings for an O320-A1A which is the same as an O320 with no suffix.

    Correct, could have been done correctly referencing the service document and the parts manual and making a log book entry since they are on the smae TCDS. Some will argue that but should have been a simple change to make had the proper data been used by the initial installer.

    Thank you for that Steve, that was my IA's and my thoughts as well.
