Thanks for the update. That sure is a long time for a V-clamp. Acorn is a very repituable company, this we know. Please keep us updated.
I do see an additional Saywell International in the United Kingdom. They might be affiliated with the one in Florida.

Kent - thank you for the fast reply!

I talked to Acorn last week (no joy) and called the shops on your list this morning... looks like most roads lead back to Acorn as the first-level supplier after the manufacturer (Aeroquip) who is saying they won't ship any more until 2025.
I have my fingers crossed that I can use the allowed inspection-and-continued-use extension into 2025!

Hi -
I'm on the hunt for this MVT69861-377 v-band clamp, which is affected by an AD and thus pretty much unobtainable. I found a supplier (Joy Aviation Supply) in New Jersey that sells a similar part number MVT68049-375D which they claim is an allowed replacement part. BUT... my shop is cautious (and rightly so) due to the AD. The original piper part number is 555-511 I believe.

I searched online but could not find any official documentation from Piper that it is allowable to make this substitution.

Does anyone know of an official document that would allow my shop to accept a brand new MVT68049-375D as replacement for MVT69861-377?

thanks!
-Frank.
