It seems to me that, as we are all agreeing to disagree, the FAA also has different interpretations of its own rules from FSDO to FSDO. I think that the interpretation here is that the airframe is the same as our dusters, not built and certified here. I agree, if a part does not come with a PMA, TSO, or a type certificate data plate stating such compliance with our FAR's, they have no way to write and AD. Your lycoming or siensich prop do have data plates. Once that motor or prop have been modified outside of the specs set forth by the manufacture it is no different than making your own and therefore having to go through the test phase again.
