The absence of dual has far worse consequences than the absence of fuel.

A friend of mine has a Stearman with a Continental 220 on it. He is
interested in doing a little acro in it and wondered if the absence of an
inverted fuel/oil system would lead to any engine damage during the brief
neg G experienced during slow rolls, loops etc. Could anyone offer any
