Thanks Jim!  Don't know what we would do without you!  I found some on eBay.  Four of the clips on the plane since I have owned it are fishing duolock snaps.

Are these for the Shaw Aero caps like were used on the H295's? The PN is 417-20-6. You can find them to the tune of $150+ for the chain and two clips. I don't see a PN for just the clip. Probably a little rich for your liking! I have some I can send you. email me: jimmetzler@me.com

The slat seal is called out on the Helio drawing for slats. It gives a Globe part number which of course is no longer available. I've used a closed cell foam 3/8"X3/16" for a lot of years. CGR Products in Greensboro NC carry it by the roll and it isn't very expensive as I recall. cgrproducts.com I can't read the PN on the roll I have anymore. It comes with a sticky-back which holds well to a clean slat. I think the primary purpose of the seal is to limit airflow under the slat for a more efficient wing. Additionally it keeps the slat from banging against the wing when it nests and lowers any vibration. Jim

Louis, I really don't know. I just know that when I was putting my Helio together in '94 it didn't have the weatherstripping and didn't get it put on for about a year.  Larry Mongomery gave me several rolls of 3-M weatherstripping about 20 feet long along with some other parts when I was leaving Spartenberg the weatherstrip was put on after the ferry trip to AK. Then later when I removed the paint I didn't have enough weatherstripping to replace what I removed and I couldn't find a part number or any mention of the weather stripping in the repair manuals. I tried several different weatherstrips that came from the hardware store before finding a 3-M version that worked. I don't remember paying much attention to whether other different Helios had the weatherstripping or not.

I just don't think the watherstripping was a Factory application from my own experience.

If I'm wrong please correct me.

So finally, the Helio were going out of the factory without weatherstrip ?

Thanks Doug.  I would put money on you being right.  It looks much better with the Lycoming than with the radial

The Helio above may be c/n 2531 Joe Terrell's N169E but the registry mark just doesn't have enough resolution in the picture to tell for sure take a look at the link below.
