Dear All,

Again another issue related to the 1000Hrs inspection of our beloved Mooney M20J.
This time, we figured out that the FUEL SELECTOR VALVE need to be replaced every 500hrs, which means that we need to change it in this year inspection.
We received a quotation from Mooney (again via Justus from ACG-aircraft GmbH) for a new Fuel Selector Valve P/N 610289-007 for 1638,46 Usd... Ouch!!
Quite expensive, but the intriguing thing is that the Mooney Parts Seller wrote: "...BUT! if there is nothing wrong with the fuel selector, it does NOT have to be replaced unless it is beyond repair..."

Does any fellow member replaced the FUEL SELECTOR VALVE at 500Hrs in his M20J ??
Any useful information to share?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
where did you get this requirement from?
If maintenance manual doesn't require, there's no AD or Service Bulletin, than there's no need to replace the fuel selector valve (or any other part). There is one requiring cleaning it however, every 100hrs/annual. SB20-200.
If there is trouble with it, LASAR does rebuild/reseal them.

Hi!

Thanks for your comment.

The information it's on the M20J Service Manual (in attach). We have a late model M20J so it has a Fuel Selector Valve from a different manufacturer than Aderson-Brass.
By the Service Manual it's clear that it has to be changed at 500hrs, right?

Our J has now 1030hrs and it is D registered (since 2010), and the German Inspector it's asking to change this part according to the M20J Service Manual information (documents from 2014 ARC/inspection in attach).

I know that many mooney pilots/owners aren't changing the Fuel Selector Valve at the 500hrs inspection because I read about it at MooneySpace. But I believe it's an obligation, right?

Any M20J owner can help?

Regards,
Frederico Costa Leite

Hi,
if i read this document correctly it calls for overhaul or replacement. There should be detailed instructions for this (disassembly-reassembly with new seals) in the maintenance manual.
Best regards,

All,

After questioning directly the Mooney Factory and also Jerry (maintenance guru from MAPA Log), they all said that the Fuel Selector Valve should not be replaced if its in good conditions, which was the case.

This way, we forgot this issue and besides the regular oil servicing, we didn´t do anything to the Fuel Selector Valve.
But I keep a little bit confused about the M20J Service Manual and the recomendations of the Time Limits, and the obligation or not to comply with...

Regards,
Frederico
