I have discovered SPAR corrosion on the left wing of my 1968 Piper PA-28-140. I am looking for a corrosion free Left Wing & matching Fuel tank with Piper Part number 66602-05. I am hoping to find one in Canada or the Northern States as I am located near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Thank you

You might want to check the COPA advertisers as they are mostly in Canada.

BTW, there are a few left wing nuts in this forum but I assume that's not quite what you have in mind.

My sympathies -- I'm so sorry that happened.

Do the 140s and 180s have the same wing? That might help widen the search a bit.

+1 to Airframe Components. They can actually rebuild your wing with a brand new spar.

Thanks to everyone for your input. I am quite sure that a 180 wing is compatible with a 140. I believe my AME mentioned that one could look for a 180 wing after 1972? Not 100% positive on this though. I have had a quote from Airframe Components, however, unfortunately, the rebuilding of the wing or purchasing a rebuilt wing would cost just about as much as a used 140. Especially with the US-CDN exchange right now. Thanks again everyone. Sure appreciate your time and valuable input.

Another source would be Williams Inc. in north east Indiana. They had racks of wings and other parts when I was there.

I'm sorry to hear that. There must be a good number of old 140s and 180s being parted out in western Canada, where you could get a wing (after corrosion inspection) for a reasonable-ish cost. If not, then maybe your other, good wing will give someone else's PA-28 new life, like an organ donor.
