1956 Cessna 172 Long Range Tanks?

1956 Cessna 172 Long Range Tanks?

Hi fella's

I'm an A&P IA down on 3J6 South East Georgia very accomplished on playing with airpllanes structurally etc.

Also looking for a job currently flying a King Air 200 with 8353 tt and 3174 turbine pic on jet and 77oo total jet and typed on CL850 and CL65 and 737 laid off from Untied until 2017 so .... its over and was only on for a year there.

But does anyone know of a 1956 or otherwise early 172 being converted to long range fuel with factory long range fuel tanks?

If I knew of an airplane and it registration number i could order a copy of 337's from the FAA on it and go from there on working to get a field approval for my airplane.

Make it easier.

I don't see long range tanks on my model (1956 172) in  the Type Certificate of the parts book.

Not sure what you mean by "factory long range tanks".  My 59 POH only lists the standard tanks.  I know of two routes for bigger tanks.  There are instances of 172's and 170's getting approved with 175 wings.  Depends on the FSDO, though on whether you'll get it approved.   Second, I think Del-Air has a "pathway" for bigger tanks. I don't recall if it is an STC or what. You could give Harry a call and see what he has to say.
Del-Air.  Google has Del-air at Harry Dellicker      (559) 782-0659      Porterville, CA 93257    

Or, a completely different solution, but honestly I wanted bigger tanks too until I started running LOP.  Having full CHT's and EGT's gave me the confidence to lean and save fuel.  At this point, 38 usable is plenty.  That was not the case ROP and no instrumentation.

Good luck with the job hunt.
best regards
