    Gascolator

    I hardly ever get anything out of the sump drains in the wings, not even water.

    Lately I've been getting some black flaky stuff out of the gascolator. Does that sound like fuel lines deteriorating?

    How hard is it to take the gascolator apart and how do you do it?

    Are there lots of parts that will fly out or is it just a big bowl?

    Gascolator

    So where do I get square O-rings and what size would I ask for?

    Sounds like IF I was smart I wouldn't take it apart without having spare O-rings on hand.

    Mike R., do you handle these too?

    it is just a big bowl with a square o-ring at the top.
    Don't break it though, rumor is that beech wants
    17,000 dollars for a replacment.

    I get black flaky stuff out of my tank sumps, but it
    never makes it to the gasgolator... And you fuel
    lines should be aluminum.

    Gascolator

    Well actually, I remember it being square. We didn't
    take it apart this year, it was last year. We didn't
    have any problems reusing what we had though.
