Curtis Superior Valve Company Receives Approval for Quick Drain Valve

Curtis Superior Valve Co., Inc., a manufacturer of oil and fuel valves for the aviation industry for over 70 years, announces it has received FAA PMA approval for the CCB-38000 valve, a low-profile, aluminum, oil quick-drain valve. This drain valve fits most Lycoming engines.

When installed, the valve extends slightly more than the drain plug installed by Lycoming. The valve was designed specifically for retractable-gear aircraft and twin-engine aircraft with close-fit cowling; however, it will fit any Lycoming engine where there might be interference from structure, exhaust, hoses or wiring, or where weight is a concern.

The CCB-38000 valve comes with a separate activating tool (CCA-38001) which can be kept in the aircraft or mechanic's tool box and can be ordered separately if lost.

Customers may purchase the CCB-38000 from Curtis’ worldwide distributor network. See www.curtissuperiorvalve.com for a distributor listing.
