Overhauled Fuel Valves and Kits for Cessna Aircraft
McFarlane offers overhauled fuel selector valves and on-off valves on exchange or we can overhaul your valve. Also available are part kits that contain o-rings, all seals, and all other parts normally required during overhaul. McFarlane has FAA-PMA approval to use fuel proof Viton o-rings in most of the Cessna fuel valves. The Viton fluorocarbon elastomer gives years of trouble free service. All parts are FAA-PMA, Cessna factory parts, or standard hardware and of course, fully traceable.
We can save you money!
Our prices are low, as our vast experience with these valves lets us get the job done right the first time. The overhaul of these valves is especially challenging in that many of the new seals will not properly seal without careful rework and perfecting before installation and some of the valve bodies have small defects from the original manufacturing. These defects must be corrected for a long service life. Some of the valves require special tooling to properly re-assemble the valves.
Our valves always work!
Testing is also very important. It is very frustrating and expensive to de-fuel the aircraft, replace the fuel valve, and refuel the aircraft to find that the repaired valve still leaks. All McFarlane valves are carefully pressure tested for leakage in all positions. Our testing will also detect inter-port leakage. The cam type valves are also tested for proper fuel flow. These valves are very sensitive to part wear that will result in restricted fuel flow.
Keep it clean!
The fuel from the tanks going through the selector valve and shut-off valve has not been filtered. Except for aging of the seals, most fuel valve failures are related to contamination in the fuel. For long valve life and trouble free valve operation, keep the fuel going in the tank as clean as possible. (McFarlane also offers fuel filter funnels.)
