• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Greetings of the season to everyone.
I can get one of these engines at a reasonabe price and just wondered if anyone with greater knowledge of them could comment on its suitability. Its done 2400 hours already so its going to need freshening up. I've looked thru the archives and noted that certainly the E sereies engine probably wouldn't be the wisest choice, but how would this B3B cope? I'm wondering along the lines of fitting inverted systems and a suitable fixed pitch prop fitment. I can't find enough info in the acrosport newsletter archive or biplane forum site to make up my mind; I'm going to have to buy the engine blind as it is about 800 miles away from me!
