• 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.

I am shopping for an either/or fuel valve for our Skybolt. The Allen valve has the ability to weld their fittings to extend their knob to almost any length. This is going to be helpful since I want to keep the fuel lines well up front. Does anyone have an opinion about this valve?
Also I am looking for a fairly light gascolator appropriate for our installation. Has anyone used this one?-

Our engine will be a 260HP fuel injected Lycoming.
