• 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).

On the Steen tank, the fuel outlet is in the center of the front panel, on the very bottom. SHould the flop tube go straight in, or should it be 90deg to the outlet, so that it flops up and down the side panel?

And why is the outlet fitting 3/4" when the flop tube only has 1/4 male fitting? WHy so big onthe outside?Edited by: scottly
