• 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).

Gascolator & fuel line

Greetings all,

I'm about 90% done with a Meyer Little Toot, using a fixed pitch Lycoming O-320. I purchased (twice) the "homebuilder" gascolator from AC Spruce, mounted it (using their ss bracket) and took it off. The bowl didn't fit well, the bracket, although ss and nicely bent, was too thin and the whole thing wobbled until the fuel lines held it in place. All in all, unacceptable.

I'm considering going with either the Andair gascolator, or the FAA approved model shown from Spruce. I would be interested in hearing what others are using.

Lastly, as I am concerned about fuel flow.....I'm considering switching from -6 lines to -8. Thoughts on that?
