Need 2 Wheel Caps P/N 158-01000

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

Does anyone know where I can find two serviceable, used Cleveland wheel caps p/n 158-01000? I have already messaged @Alan Fox and Wentworth. 

For new ones I've already contacted airpowerinc.com, univair.com & spruce.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I bought mine on eBay ($75 each) but I bet those are long gone, he had old new stock back in November. May try there…


Thanks Don. 

Wentworth called an hour ago and had two for $85 each. Can't believe my good luck. Nobody even had new parts in stock and at best it would've been a three to eight week wait, with prices ranging from $400 to $500.

Very good guess. That's definitely what happened to them.

When I was getting my E back in the air there were slight marks on both caps, A&P said he’d seen it multiple times

Not familiar with that issue. Can you explain what’s happening to the Cotter pins so I can watch for it?

Thanks, Dan

If the cotter pin isn't bent backward sufficiently, it will score/gouge the inside of the wheel cap.

I tested one of my damaged caps today. Did the vinegar test, no reaction.  Filed some material off and tried to light it.  No response. It seems these are aluminum. 

I know the wheels on my two Mooneys were magnesium. Your wheels are older, they may be different.

The wheel "could" be mag or aluminum depending on P/N

Anyone familiar with either can tell just by lifting them

Same with the small hub caps. 

I'd have a TIG welder do it. 

Save $$$$$$  by welding if new is $500 ea.  At $85 it might be a toss up. 

You're just filling in lost metal on  a cast part.  

Clean the weld with a dremel and files

This is not a structural part. Its only a dust cover. 

If vinegar doesn't foam on clean metal then its probably aluminum 

Rub the inside with steel wool, clean well and try vinegar  No foam No aluminum

I don't think they'd go to the trouble of mag casting a dust cover. Not enough to gain there,
