Twin Comanche 1H7-1 & 1H7-2 fuel selector valves. These units have been converted to the -7 & -8 configuration [o-ring seats]; aka P/N 492-136 and 492-137. They include the stainless steel bowls [kit 757-187]; fresh cadmium plating, and look as new. These valves are exchange only on like-kind rebuildable cores; available separately. Check here for the fuel level indicating micro switch kit.

NOTE – THIS IS NLA FROM ME due to Duke’s pricing; I refuse to be associated with something so stupid.

Here is the Dukes transmission lubricant called out in the Comanche manuals special service instructions. It is a 2-ounce tube, adequate for 3 transmission services. I include 3 O-rings with the grease purchase; $93. Dukes number 4 lubricant [#4 lubricant], aka Dukes grease no 2196-74-1; according to Dukes these 2 specifications are the same. FYI – Dukes instituted a minimum purchase per invoice of $475 back in 2010 after the company was purchased and all the prices increased.

Pictured is S&B Industry’s repair to a left side “heavy” strut housing. This specific housing is for the “round” switch version; the rectangular switch version gets converted to this configuration and requires a modified landing gear wiring harness which I can also provide. Here are some of the strut housing part numbers referenced: 20752-012, 27053-004, 27052-013, 27053-05, 20752-008, 20753-000, 20752-009, 27053-000, 27053-001.

PIPER COMANCHE LANDING GEAR PROBLEM CONSULTATION

Need help with the landing gear on your Piper Comanche?

If you or your A&P are not familiar with the Comanche landing gear system or just can’t figure it out, I am available for consultation with the diagnostics of your landing gear problems – call me. I am a Mechanical Engineer, A&P mechanic, and business owner; sometimes I need to get paid for my knowledge and expertise. If yours requires a lengthy diagnosis I can create a solution-tree for you; sometimes accompanied by a color-coded wiring diagrammatic solution.

I spend a lot of time writing technically descriptive articles, trying my best to convey education through them, which allows me more freedom so I don’t have to “teach class” everyday. Spend some time reading; if you are still stumped then give me a call.
