Hello, do you know about any C-172 related junkyard, or so, where they are parting out Cessnas? I am looking for exhaust muffler for Reims Rocket FR172E, it should be same on C-172 XP, and T-41, with Continental iO-360 engine – P/N 1455009-3 (if someone has any serviceable, no need of form1) I want part with pipe straight through cowlings, without Gomolzig.
But for what I saw on internet, any place with GA airplanes in EU is very rare I know Plane Parts Nimbus in Germany, near Köln, but no luck there.
Realistically you might have better luck getting it “rebuilt” from whatever is left. If no EU shops are willing, the US ones will be happy to take your money. Let me know if you need second hand (as in, for work done for other people, not me) recommendations.
Preferred Airparts show a used one in stock.
The reality of breaking aircraft is you might think a 172 part will fit lots of 172’s, and the part you seek should be pretty common. Until you start looking at the IPC book and it all gets very serial number specific.
In the EU for a little while, Paul Nalson at Nalson Aviation:
I second that. Paul certainly knows his business.
Exhausts are not what I’d look for from a recycler, as they are not a long life item, even if stainless steel, and some take work time to replace.
Agreed, Paul is the man for used parts! He has a rather large supply of stock!
