Oil Cooler Winterization Plate

Ambient outside temps are fast approaching 50 degrees Fahrenheit and yesterday we had frost in Milwaukee. It's time for those oil cooler winterization plates to go on! :)

  • The weather here is psychotic...last week, Bismarck got 17.1" of heavy, wet snow...today, it's 65 above, and most of the snow has melted. But, I guess it IS time to install that winterization plate!

  • Here in Louisiana, it can be 30 degrees one day and 70 the next. Wish there was a plate adjustable from the cockpit.

  • The Cessna TTx had a knob in the cabin for that. I wish we had that in Pipers, too.

  • Hi Scott, I can’t find this part for my Arrow. Do you know a shop that can make a custom one?
  • The parts catalog shows the winterization kit as 760 383 or 760 384 depending on your Arrow serial number.

  • Hi Elio,
    You can have you shop bend a piece of aluminum into a U shape and drill a hole for a small bolt. Easy as pie! :)
