SUMMARY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all Raytheon Aircraft Company (Raytheon) Beech Models 35-C33A, E33A, E33C, F33A, F33C, S35, V35, V35A, V35B, 36, and A36 airplanes that incorporate a certain Teledyne Continental engine configuration. This AD requires you to repetitively replace the existing Aeroquip V-band exhaust clamp. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent the tailpipe from detaching from the turbocharger due to failure of the V-band exhaust clamp. Clamp failure could result in the release of high temperature gases inside the engine compartment with the potential for a consequent fire in the engine compartment.
