• 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).

NOS Christen 802 Inverted Oil Valve. I bought this for a project that I've since sold and it isn't doing me any good sitting on the workbench.

$454 at Aircraft Spruce

Asking $300 plus shipping. Local pickup in the Seattle area preferred, I'll even fly it to you within ~75 nmi of KPAE.

What's the latest that's reasonable time to call on your end? I generally don't have much chance to call before 7PM, Pacific during the week.

If you still have it, please call me at (318) 331-0053.
Also, what size AN fittings fit it?
Thanks,
Eric

Between 7 and 8 pm your time is fine. That’s 9 to 10 pm here.
Main thing is whether the ports are sized for AN 8 or AN10 fittings?
The Christen System first came out in the 1970’s with -8 fittings, then later upgraded their systems to -10’s.
Also do you have an idea what shipping cost to Memphis, TN would be? I can get that if I knew the size and weight.
Thanks for responding.
Eric

I was able to check the threads with calipers, all of my AN fittings are in the hangar. The ID of the threads was just under .7" so I presume that means it is an AN8 with the 3/4-16 thread.

The openings in the 3 way valve I believe are 1/2”NPT and you can get fittings either AN 8 or 10 with 3/8” up to 3/4”NPT.
