    Window Question

    We are rebuilding a 1957 PA-18A and am up to fitting the windows. Our other Supercub has a small Perspex cup in the upper door window that goes around the fuel drain in the right wing. I canít pick it up in the parts book, can anyone help with a part number or source please?

    cheers Bill

    You can just put a rubber bumper on butt rib to hold door down from quick drain if itís a semi flush drain.

    That is not a Piper part that I have seen. I use the flush fuel drains and no issue hitting the flip up window.

    How about placing a spacer under the latch? When the door swings up and latches into place, it will be low enough to not bump the drain valve.

    Sounds like push drains. A little rubber bumper will solve it.
