Cessna fuel shutoff valve

PIPER J5.5

FRIEND
corvallis,or
Current project I’m working on has a cracked housing at the female pipe threads. Looking for a 0716111-1 fuel shut off valve that has pipe threads on both sides. It screws into header tank under the floor boards. Not a selector valve. There are none used or new on the market and unavailable through Cessna.

Has anyone had this housing made out of 7075 billet? Anyone have a valve?

Cessna A185E

McFarland lists one but they only repair them. They don’t sell replacements.

I’d bet McFarlane needs your old one to repair and magically it’s returned brand new. Why does the ad say “new valves also available?”
 
I suggest using 6061-T6 instead of 7075 Al. 6061-T6 has good strength, easy to machine and much improved corrosion resistance over 7075, especially if anodized after machining. 7075 Al has excellent strength but poor corrosion resistance.
