Default DC F20 engine thrust

I am rebuilding another DC F20 and there is no mention of any right/down thrust for the engine. Should the thrust be 0/0? I can't remember if I had any thrust on the 1st plane, which I build 10 years ago. Thanks.

I'd put it 0-0. I'm pretty sure the wing is symmetrical, so down thrust wouldn't
be needed. Some time I use some right thrust in tail draggers, but I wouldn't
use it on a nose wheel prop jet....not needed.

FBD.

Mine is the DC (juno) f-20 and no right or down thrust at all is in it. Flew it for the first time this past sunday and was great! Can't wait till i get time on the motor and can lean it out.
