The FAA has issued a NPRM on an expanded Lycoming Crank AD for 360 cu. in.
displacement engines:

You can check your engine model and serial number if you have something
other than the stock O-360-A4K in your Sundowner. None of the engines are
less than 360 cu.in. models, so 150-160 HP Musketeers are unaffected.

Supers and Sierras could be, depending on the exact engine you have and if
the crank has been replaced recently.

Click on "Supplement 1 to SB 566" link to see the engine models and serial
numbers, and the serial numbers of the "bad" cranks.
