O-Ring for Fuel Cap -- looking for part #

Hello,
I'm looking for the part # (and possible source) for replacement O-Rings for the Fuel Caps on my DA40 XLS (extended range tanks).
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks,

Re: Exhaust valve problem options

At my last annual, I had a burnt exhaust valve... decided to replace with a new full cylinder kit at cost of $1200 parts and a few hundred dollars labor. At the time the aircraft had 1800 tach hours and that was the first valve problem and therefore first cylinder replacement.

Steven, within ForeFlight you can get a subscription to the Jeppesen charts (displayed and geo-referenced on the ForeFlight Maps and Plates views).

Re: Leaning question

Arnaud, you'll want to collect data (e.g. KTAS, Fuel Flow) versus Density Altitude (DA; not MSL). Here's data that I collect on my 2008 DA40 (PowerFlow, EIS): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13EiF2sPrLwU5VKTHRLMSQ896efwYs8SDzMRLxAmXEMA/edit?usp=sharing See tabs on the bottom for KTAS vs DA, F...

Touchup Paint

Hi, DA40ers!
Anyone have a small amount of exterior touchup paint they could spare? I have a small (~3") superficial scratch to touchup on my 2008 DA40, and only need maybe a ounce of paint. If you do, please PM me and we'll arrange logistics to pick up or mail.
Many thanks!
Wayne

Re: Cruising in forward slip solved!

Could still be the nose wheel corking, because that seems to be a function of the nose wheel angle on liftoff. You'll need to verify by many, many trial takeoffs... or a GoPro on the tail skid facing forward.

Re: Simulator for a DA62

He spent a good deal of time...
