• 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).

We have my Acrosport II almost ready to fly, but as usual, there are a couple of bugs to work out. The carb has a fresh yellow tag from a place in Oklahoma city, if I remember right.The engine (an O-360 A3A)runs great, but we are seeing about 18psi of fuel pressure. Both the carb and the fuel pump have about 400 hours with each other. I downloaded the Bendix PS5-C manual, and it recommended 9-14 psi. Will I have to change the fuel pump, or is there a fuel pressure regulator that I can install to bring the pressure down?
