• 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).

This is for Jerry. Couldn't get them to load in a PM

Engine mount looks something like this. Drawing is just a sketch..no scale. There is also a horizontal bushing at the lower diagonal intersection for a total of 5 mounting positions at the firewall.

There are steel straps welded to the main legs..around the mount ring and again to the backside of each main leg. Much like a wing stut bushing.

ring is 1.25 OD
main legs are 1.00 OD
support diagonals are .875 OD

I believe all legs/diagonals are .049 wall.

Spool bushing is 3/8 ID and 5/8 OD
Spool base is 1.75 OD

What else???
