    WTB primer line and parking brake?

    Hi folks! I have a popped weld from my cylinder 4 primer line (on an o-320 A2B). I was curious if anybody has one on hand they’d be willing to part with before I go through Univair.

    On a sidenote, if anybody also has a parking brake assembly they’d be willing to part with I think it’s about time for me to get one installed.

    Cheers!

    ???? Not quite following the question about the primer line. It's just 1/8" copper tubing. (Ace hardware stuff)

    And an error prevents the photo upload...basically the weld for the nipple on the inlet jet broke, so I’ve been cleaning my rear left engine nice and clean. I’m not sure ace has that in stock.

    Copper lines or stainless steel? Is the beak in the line or the primer nozzle? Part number and picture from the Lycoming book?

    The nipple that is secured by the nut popped off. (Get your mind out of the gutter)

    You can replace your entire system at Ace or a good hardware store for the $63 Univair wants for that one section. The fitting is 1/8" npt. Where do you think Piper bought those parts?

    You can unsolder the broken part at solder on if line is long enough

    I was just looking at those, but since I don’t have it in front of me, couldn’t recall if it was the 800-2 or -2C.

    FWIW, I went to all Ace's in CO Springs and none of them carry 1/8" copper line anymore. They had all the fittings, but have stopped supplying the line.

    Well folks, thanks for the feedback. Went ahead and got that fitting from aircraft Spruce and soldered it in. Fitting, butane torch, flux, and silver solder all cheap than ordering from univair. And the knowledge obtained is priceless.
