• 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).

My buddies clipped wing Cub I maintain had a major engine failure the other day...he lost oil pressure after takeoff and upon inspecting the screen...that was partially collapsed! It is full of steel (magnetic) metal. I removed engine last weekend and have it in for overhaul at a local shop but am looking for some new chrome valve covers. Anyone have a set laying around they'd sell? Also I'd be interested in seeing or hearing your thoughts on cub engine colors for case and cylinders.
