Default arrow static port?

Not entirely sure this is quite the right newsgroup but here goes:

My local field just recently got an older arrow, and I decided it
might be a good idea to get some retract/complex time. All well and
good, but one thing on my cessna preflight list didn't translate:

check static port.

I looked ~all~ over for it and couldn't find it. So, of course, I went
to look through the POH, nothing there about it either. ~And~, my
CFI (who shall remain nameless!) didn't know, either.

Anybody here help me out?

My Arrow 1V has developed a problem with the ASI. At normal cruise power 23/24
it is reading 20/25 KTS below 'normal', i.e. reads 100 kts when it usually reads
125 kts ( yes, the gear is up !!)
Cross checking with the GPS in nil wind conditions confirms the difference.
With a friend carefully blowing into the pitot I observed a reading -60 kts on the ASI but the altimeter and VSI also moved !
Numerous theories from friends. What does the 'Panel' think ?
Also is there a relatively simple way of removing g the ASI should that be necessary. It is in a hell of a position to get at.
Thanks for you comments.
