PostForum: RV10-List   Posted: Tue May 07, 2019 5:47 am   Subject: Fuel - Mogas

Looking at your photos, yes, it is possible they got a bit hot. However, it is also possible the rivets were squeezed a little too tight. That will cause cracking around the rivets.

For the C4B5 and D4A5 I only see one gasket for the mag and adapter: 62224.
What other part number do you see? Do you have an engine other than the most common 250/260hp IO-540?
