Topic-icon Oil Quick Drain for Arrow

Hi Robert;
What's wrong with your F62? If you want a new F62, Aircraft Spruce ( www.aircraftspruce.com ) sells them for $117.
According to the Safe Air web site, the F62 can be refurbished by installing a MS28775-109 Viton o-ring and re-installed with a MS35769-21 crush washer.

So, after my first owner assist annual, I wanted to get a quick drain for my Arrow. I was aware that caution needed to be taken as the nose gear on retraction could activate the quick drain, turning me quickly into a glider pilot. The installed plug is a Saf Air F62, and the recommended associated quick drains (Saf Air F50-180, F50-90) were too long to fit over the plug due to the nose gear assembly.

Any ideas? I need either a REALLY shallow plug, or a flatter quick drain. Here is a photo, if needed.
