• 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).

I’m running an O320 pressure carb on my S1-C. The current OC location is screwed to the nose bowl and the lines run within an inch or so of the crossover exhaust stack. It currently has a 7 row but I have an aero classic 9 row I could install. I’m thinking of moving it to the left rear baffle to get those lines away from the exhaust but am concerned about cooling. Just looking for the best location. The firewall mount location is out as there’s no room.
