• 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.

Slick Mags replacing Bendix

My old Bendix mags are still working well, but they have been on the IO-360 for over 20 years and I think are the source of a small oil leak. I'm thinking of replacing them with new Slick mags from Aircraft Spruce. Anything I should know? I've read they are different to time, using a pin instead of looking for the red dot on the phenolic gear. They are supposed to be lighter. My harness is relatively new, do I need a new one to fit the Slicks? One of the two needs the impluse, two new gaskets, anything else?
