|SAF-AIR designed its line of flush mounted fuel drain valves to be an exact replacement for the Auto Valve F391 line of flush fuel drain valves. Unlike the Auto Valve, SAF-AIR valves can be rebuilt. These valves offer a dependable, low-cost solution when a flush mount is needed. FAA & TSO-C76 approved|
Great product, very well made.
Nice replacement Valve, the ability to rebuild it adds to the value.
This is a replacement for Cessna part #2020-2 only better because it has been designed to be rebuildable. For the cost of two standard gas resistant O-rings you can rebuild it good as new over and over (If you have that many failures that is).
Perfect replacement for my Mooneys old seeping valve. One star deduction for the mis-information regarding the rebuildability (if thats a word) of these valves. Saf-Air has changed the design now crimping the retaining washer into the valve body and it can no longer be rebuilt without significant alteration. This actually makes the valve more dependable, but also makes it disposable. Luckily its one of the cheaper replacement parts on the plane.
