Applicability: Models PA-23-150, PA-23-160, PA-23-235, and PA-23-250 airplanes (all serial numbers) that have Met-Co-Aire 48-gallon fuel tip tanks installed in accordance with Supplemental Type Certificate SA1480WE, certificated in any category.

Compliance: Required within the next 100 hours time-in-service after the effective date of this AD, unless already accomplished.

To prevent fuel leakage and possible fire, which could result in passenger injury, accomplish the following:

(a) Replace any existing Parker "Push-Lok" flexible fuel hose, MCA part number (P/N) 11059-4 or Parker-Hannifin P/N 801-6/250PSI, with a Stratoflex hose, MCA P/N 11059-10 or Parker-Hannifin P/N 130001-6S-0154, in accordance with the instructions in Met-Co-Aire Service Bulletin No. 23-001, dated July 1992.

(b) Special flight permits may be issued in accordance with FAR 21.197 and 21.199 to operate the airplane to a location where the requirements of this AD can be accomplished.

(c) An alternative method of compliance or adjustment of the compliance time that provides an equivalent level of safety may be approved by the Manager, Los Angeles Aircraft Certification Office, FAA, 3229 E. Spring Street, Long Beach, California 90806-2425. The request shall be forwarded through an appropriate FAA Maintenance Inspector, who may add comments and then send it to the Manager, Los Angeles Aircraft Certification Office.

NOTE 2: Information concerning the existence of approved alternative methods of compliance with this AD, if any, may be obtained from the Los Angeles Aircraft Certification Office.

(d) The replacement required by this AD shall be done in accordance with Met-Co-Aire Service Bulletin No. 23-001, dated July 1992. This incorporation by reference was approved by the Director of the Federal Register in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR Part 51. Copies may be obtained from Met-Co-Aire, P.O.
