For those with Superior engines (like me - we have one on our Tundra), if you;re wondering about the affected range of cranks, I checked with the company, and it appears that the cranks in the AD were from the 2012 - 2014 timeframe. Ours was from back in 2004, so we’re clear. This might help with the angst...at least for those with older or younger cranks!

Hey Paul your correct and mine was a Superior kit engine they call them, sold by Superior to JJ Air Parts then to my engine builder. Where he has the option to modify cylinders, have the engine balanced, ported etc. Sad part is my engine runs sooooo good!! But I am thankful if what they state is a problem with the hardening process on the crank that no one got hurt yet from my understanding.

My engine was ordered Feb of 2013 and assembled in June 2013.
