• 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).

Lycoming O-540 with PS5B Pressure Carb.
During the condition inspection on our Skybolt we discovered that when the mixture control is move it causes fuel to drip at a plunger of some sort.
Where is a good place to have it serviced. I suspect it will very expensive. Is it worth putting money into this thing? Or would we be better off converting to fuel injection?
