Great info, will get some Tite-seal. I don't care to have issues with teflon tape in my fuel system!

Use Tite-seal, medium weight. Bits of teflon tape can end up in the fuel system. Not good.

Hi Fred;
All the Piper PA 28 manuals I looked at, including the PA 28-181 called out a CCA 1550.
Best,
Steve

My fuel sump drain valve is leaking, looking like an easy replacement. Does anyone know what thread type we have on a Piper Archer II, PA 28-181? Spruce Aircraft shows 78 different diameters and styles of Curtis Drain Valves. Looks like it's about a 1/8" perhaps. Thinking it might be a CCA-1250? Has anyone ever ordered and replaced these? Did you use teflon tape as a sealant?
Thanks
Fred
