• 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.

I am welding now the top wing fuel tank and have some doubts.

1) The Mackencie newsletters consider a mistake to hook top wing tank to gravity feed the main Tank..
Why this restriction? Providing vent pressure is the same I can not imagine why.

Reading tech papers of M12 web page, I can see the header tank is feeded both from main tank and wing tank.
