Well the owner of my Cherokee came pick it up today and flew it home. Wife and I didn't realize how attached you can get to a machine, both sad to see it leave, even though we really like the new arrow.

Ohh yea I love it so far, she's a sweet machine.

Any body know where to find the proper hose that fits into the oil drain valve for draining the oil?

I slide plastic tubing (3/8 ID, maybe?) over the end of the drain, put the other end in a Homer Bucket, then open the drain valve. All of this AFTER I've taken the airplane for a quick trip around the pattern to warm up the oil.
