A BW  #1 cylinder might help with that. Its dual ports are cut deeper than a Super Bee's dualies.

Yes. You may have to start it upright if you find it floods easily. Once started it will perform like an upright mounted Bee

Does nobody use a "klunk" in their external tanks these days?  I only use external tanks and I've always used klunks in them, and I've never had a problem.  I run a couple of Bees upside down and have never had a reason to even wonder about this question.  In other words, they've always worked - just as I expected.

Clunks in small tanks can be a problem. Bladder is easier for small tanks.

Invert the backplate?

Post  VUgearhead on Wed Jul 08, 2015 10:56 am

On a baby bee, is there any reason you can't invert the backplate so the proper nipples/vents are in the right orientation, while the piston is downward? I know this isn't the same as a stunt tank, but at least your fuel won't go draining out (unless you do most of your flying inverted!).

Works just fine, exactly the way one would expect it to.
