    [musketeermail] Cowl latches for Original 1963 Musketeer

    I know of no source for new ones. They can readily be fabricated from the
    clamping portion of the Vee-clamps used on pool pumps, and similar pumps
    like the Hydroglass series sold by Sears. These stainless-steel Vee clamps
    are made from the correct type of malleable stainless steel, as opposed to
    the more brittle flat stock that cracks when bent or rolled. They have the
    strap with the rolled end and captured Tee-bolt, needed to fabricate the
    latch. If your A&P doesn't want to tackle it, find a maintenance FBO near
    you that has an FAA airframe Repair Station license. They can make some
    parts for local repairs, but they cannot make them in quantity for
    advertised resale..



    You can also check with some outfits like Arrell Aircraft; there are links
    to several on BAC. Once in a rare while something like this will surface as
    New Old Stock; that's how I sometimes stumble on old parts for our planes.
    The original part number was '169-910013-111'. This was superseded by
    'PDG-0171 E REV'.



    Good luck; you'll probably have to have one made. If properly done, it will
    be stronger than the original. We have a member, Bo Boggs, who has some
    knowledge of this. I am sending this to both MML and BAC; perhaps Bo will
    see it and respond to you.

    Hello anyone:
    Does anyone have an idea where I can get some new or used subject latches?
    One of mine fatigued due to old age. I have a make-shift temp repair until
    I find something more suitable.

    I made one from a piece of the stainless strap that is
    used to fasten antennas to chimnies. That was about
    10 years ago and it is hanging in there like a champ.
    With a couple of rivits and a piece of scrap the cost
    was pretty near zero plus about 20 minutes of my time.
