• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Removed and Overhauled by Ellison.

$1200.00? New is slightly better than 2k

It will be replaced with fuel injection.

It was overhauled last August. Went directly on the shelf and was unused when I received it back.

That is the early version with the cast body. Later ones were fully machined which is part of the reason the price went up so much. I have the same one on my 320 and while it only has ground runs it seems to work really well. Mine stayed in the box maybe 15 years before I installed it and it ran just fine.

Where did you have it overhauled? I was under the impression that Ellison had gone out of business

I had it overhauled at Ellison. There is a new owner. I'll have to email them to see if I can get a copy of the invoice as I have now misplaced it... but I did spend 619.19 on the overhaul as verified by my CC statement.
