    Resurrecting an old thread here. My Clipper came with only a couple baffle pieces. Airforms said they weren’t interested in taking on any new product lines. Vans doesn’t have a baffle kit for the O-235. I noticed that Zenair has an O-235 baffle kit for their airplanes. Was wondering if anyone has tried these on a Piper O-235 installation. $584 for a baffle kit wouldn’t be bad compared to hours of layout and cutting and forming!

    Univair doesn't have them?

    Havenít checked, but I suspect if they do they will value them like gold.

    If I was going that route, I'd just redraw into CAD from the original files, then print it out full size and cut patterns from that.

    Given all the stuff on the CHT Thread, I was just wondering if anyone has tried a different baffle design than the original Piper one. Yeah, I know that's considered a major alteration and would require "approved data", but just wondering.

    As for Univair having any parts, they have the 10175 bracket for $55.53, the 10487 tie rod for $16.41, the 10168-006 tubes for $55.01, and the 10400-000 flange for the scat tube for $62.32. No completer baffles for the PA-16, only some of the small piece parts. At least the hard to make parts are available, but $323 for just the little pieces that go in the baffles seems steep! Oh, well, nothing in aviation is cheap (except the owners).

    You have succinctly laid out the reason we went with the Van’s option.
