This blog is to chronicle my attempt to restore a 1972 Piper Cherokee 140e. This plane is the 'dog' of the airport and has been sitting untouched for 10 years. I purchased the plane and am attempting to restore it to flyable condition.

First new parts arrive!
The first of the new parts arrived today and were installed.
Brand new gasket cover valves! We removed the old cork gaskets which were old and gross and replaced them with brand new silicone gaskets.
The older cork gaskets were a pain to get off as they "fuse" to the covers and dry out.
