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 $29.95/year 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 assume the Too nose bowls aren't the same as the SA100?

Dana it could be the same? They were fiberglass knock offs of the aluminum single engine Piper Comanche, and were designed for the O-360-A1A narrow deck lycoming that is almost the same as the O-290-D width wise. They were approximately 35" wide measured across the back side, when builders started using the IO-360, and the IO-540 angle valve engines Starduster also made some for those engines, that were 37" wide, also measured across the widest part back side of the open bowl If this makes sense? There was some differences over the yrs as different suppliers and molds were worn out. Dave

I would definitely be interested in one of the nose bowls if it matches the one I have (damaged in the crash). Can you post pics and dimensions?

Three icons to the right of Insert Image is a paperclip icon -- Attachments. That's what you want.

If the file is too large you will have problems. The list of file types and sizes are toward the bottom of the Manage Attachments dialog.

He emailed me pictures so I'll post them for him... I can't use them, my cowl is much more triangular.
