• 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've done some searching around the Forum and have not seen alot of info on this subject. We are ready to put the mount on the firewall. We have the mount and the spools. What methods have been used to insure the mount is on corrrecty in reference to engine thrust line. It would be nice I think if we had a dummy block but thats not the case. Is there some way of building a dummy block with the crank in the right place or are there some measurments we can make off the engine side of the motor mount to locate the thrust line, am I thinking this out too much ??? Help me :((
