• 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 $29.95/year 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).

You could also try posting in the Airdrome Airplanes yahoo group as they seem to be a popular engine for those kits.
Cheers,

Well the person you would be calling about the engine is Steve Wolf so my guess is it was for the Samson Mite.

This is probably the replacement engine Rotec sent to Steve Wolf after he had the failure with the orbital reduction gears that was mentioned here a few weeks ago. The report at the time was that Steve was so unhappy about the failure that he immediately scrapped plans to use the Rotec and went with something else (maybe a Warner? I don't recall). Someone suggested at the time that the Rotec isn't robustly-built enough for acro use.

You might let Steve and Kathy tell the folks that are interested in it instead of posting on their ad.
