• 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).

Inverted oil valve and Tee

I've got an inverted oil valve and Christen breather Tee up on eBay.

I don't know if the valve is Christen or not, not marked.

It has 3/8 NPT ports unlike the 802 Christen valve. I've seen a valve just like this on a Pitts S-1 so I know it must work fine for a 4-cylinder.


I've cleaned it and replaced the O-rings, seems to be in good shape.
