I broke my glass bowl and need one. Can't find one anywhere. Mine is probably about 2 inches in diameter. If anyone has one or knows where I could buy one I would appreciate it.

Aren't they the same as the ones on Piper Cherokees?

Don,

Unless you have an original show plane, might I suggest a much better, safer gascolator? Check out Steve's Gascolator:
http://www.stevesaircraft.com/gascolator.php

Our Cubs use an SA3-00.

I have no affiliation with the company, just a satisfied customer; tired of leaky, loose, bail-type gascolators.

Besides, I understand finding a glass bowl for our original gascolator is mighty tough to do.

Don, I've seen a couple of them on eBay, but they're rare. Get one you can use, and a glass one will turn up eventually. Few people want them these days.

Good luck

Substitute a piece of tubing of similar outside diam. Could be any metal or plastic, but use similar thickness to avoid buckling. Just cut it square and smooth the cuts. Should seal into the Cork gaskets. Just an idea.

Check at Tractor Supply, the Ford 8N ones look just like the aircraft ones.
