Accomplishment of recommended inspections and maintenance must be documented by appropriate logbook entries and the logbook must accompany any engine being returned for warranty consideration.

6. This warranty does not apply to any engine or part supplied or overhauled by NMA which has been subject to misuse, neglect or accident or which has been installed, repaired, maintained or altered in any way that in the judgement of NMA has adversely affected the condition of the engine or which has been operated beyond factory recommendations (such as, but not limited to RPM, temperature, manifold pressure, fuel flow and improper system adjustment).

7. The conditions of this warranty do not apply to normal maintenance service (such as engine set-ups, adjustments, inspections, etc).
