New! Seat Rail Housing Gauge for Cessna Aircraft

Checks Cessna seat roller housing limits as per FAA AD 2011-10-09



McFarlane's new Cessna seat roller housing tool simplifies determining whether the housing is in or out of tolerance by allowing the areas of concern to be gauged as opposed to measuring individual attributes of each housing with calipers. Results are positive and quick!

  • Hardened stainless steel
  • Save time! Faster than calipers
    - Rollers and washers do not have to be removed
      from the roller housing
  • Step by step instructions
  • Measures all three dimensions

New! Improved Fuel Strainer Seals for Piper Aircraft

Better seal at half the price!


In addition to the Cessna fuel strainer seals already available, McFarlane now stocks all gaskets, o-rings, and Stat-O-Seals required to re-seal most Piper fuel strainers. Many of the new seals feature fuel-proof fluorocarbon that won't swell or degrade like the original Buna N seals.


We also have FAA-PMA approval to replace the copper crush gaskets on the Apaches, Aztecs, and Seminoles with stainless steel/fluorocarbon Stat-O-Seals. During inspection of these fuel strainers, the upper and lower seals must be replaced. The old copper crush gaskets used for the lower seal are unreliable and poorly suited for sealing against the small lip of the bottom of the fuel bowl. They often require several attempts to get a satisfactory seal. With our improved Viton Stat-O-Seal design a positive seal is easy to achieve!


All seals may be purchased separately or as convenient kits that contain both the upper and lower seal for one fuel strainer.

  • Replace copper crush gaskets with FAA-PMA stainless steel/fluorocarbon Stat-O-Seals
  • Won't swell like original Buna N seals
  • A positive seal is easy to achieve!
