ECI is offering replacement cylinders for those affected by the AD. I have
heard that it is "pro-rated", so probably the cost of the cylinder
decreased by the amount of use they had.

In the case of an engine that had the bad luck to be OH with a new Lycoming
crank AND the affected ECI cylinders, I would not know which process to
attempt first. Lycoming isn't going to be keen on installing ECI cylinders
and they SURE won't install NEW ECIs if you send them along with the engine.

ECI does not need to remove the engine and ship it, as Lycoming does, so
any help they give the owners is going to be in payment for locally
removing them. However I doubt they will pay for "old" cylinder
replacement. Probably only those that are under the warranty period.
