Bogert Aviation Introduces Quick-Drain Oil Valve Probe

A new 90-degree probe from Bogert for the AVI-BJ107 drain valve used on many Continental aircraft engines gives aircraft owners and mechanics an alternative to the AVI probe. This probe has an O-ring seal around the valve body, making it leakproof and helping lock the probe to the valve body. Because the probe is shorter than the original AVI-BJ107B probe, installing and using it is easier, according to the company.

The list price is $69.
