• 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).

Pitts S2E compatible engines?

Keeping an eye out for a low to mid time engine for my S2E project. Considering both parallel and angle valve IO360's and would like the option for a CS prop. Lots of models and variations of this engine, my question would be which model would be most desirable, as well as which ones to avoid. Specifically, most seem to have vertical induction and prop governors rear mounted, just want to make sure this configuration will work with the S2. Thanks in advance!
