• 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Does anyone here have experience with the Bendix Stromberg PS-5C Pressure Carburetor? I bought one on E-bay some time ago for my O-360 Lycoming. It was overhauled about 30 years ago, and had not been used since. It looks a rather complicated instrument, and I do not really understand how it works. The Carb looks like new, but ithas a number of diaphragms, and I am afraid they may have suffered or dryed out in all the years. I know the carb is obsolete, but maybe it is still possible to get spare parts, but where? Or are there people who overhaul these carburetors?
Or maybe the very best scheme, will be to lay it on the shelf as an item of interest and buy a new Ellison??
