I was intending of replacing it but after checking the part number stamp on it, it turned out that mine wasn't effected. Check the part number first to see if yours is effected.

Default no markings?

...mine has NO markings of any kind on the top, even lightly sanded it to see if there was something painted over etc.

.....any thoughts on that? were non-Lycoming vernathermii commonly used?

I remember some pilots group trying to find a source for non-aircraft vernatherms.

IIRC at that time they couldn't find an alternate non-aviation source, or even who made them for Lycoming.

Default hmmmmmmm strange!

...so that leaves me wondering where this baby came from!

I guess the only thing to do is pull it and wiggle the crimp eh?

(...probably been in there for 40 years!)

I'm not positive but I believe Rostra Vernatherm makes them...

Perhaps the issue found was that they are the only supplier and won't sell to individuals?

There are no parts in their catalog that look like the Lycoming part.

I will be very disappointed to see the need to address a 1972 original issue SB on a 2010 new Lycoming. While I do not know this for a fact, one would think that ADs and SBs prior to manufacture date are complied with. Any other path would seem legally stupid.

That's the way I'm approaching this too, Bill. There is the very small possibility that someone had an old one laying on the shelf and didn't see the service bulletin and it got installed, though. I will look at my Mattituck documentation and see if it has an installed part number listed, but I do not remember it being on the list. Access to the valve is not good and the oil filter will need to come off and I just changed oil at the first of the month before I saw this.

Gil, here is something that came up on an internet search that seems to confirm they are made by Rosa Vernatherm.

Default SB518D not applicable to my -M1B

As I look at the description and drawings here:

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...XjS1P0aPNs-v1w

which is SI 1008C,

my -M1B has a spin-on oil filter in this location.

Am I mistaken about this?

For your engine (which I have the same) the valve is located at the bottom pointing up. During your next oil change when you remove your oil filter, take a look at the bottom part and you should see it. Of course it can also be seen with the oil filter in place only not as easily.
