Default CAV-110 Fuel Drain

Is there a stainless replacement for the stock Van's drains? Mine work fine, just looking a little crusty with oxidation.

Default Yup

Andair. Look under accessories and gascolator parts.

This is the only drain valve I'll use

Took me awhile to find it!

I've never seen one.

Default Saf-Air Fuel Drains (Stainless Steel)

CAV-110 replacement fuel drain valves are available in all stainless steel from Saf-Air Products by calling them direct at (734) 522-8360.

The part number is 110SS. I purchased four of them about six months ago for $20 each.

They are identical in all respects to the original ones supplied by Vans but will stay looking great for years to come.

Thanks, Jim. I have an email in to Aircraft Spruce to see if they can stock this new valve.
