    Thunder Tiger GP40 Manual

    Hey everyone... I got a plane from a friend, complete with engine and radio... Only problem is that there is no manual or paperwork at all for the engine! That wouldn't be a big deal to me, but the engine has been sitting for somewhere around 10 years, as best as my friend can remember. I have managed to find the exploded parts diagram for the engine, but no luck so far on the manual. Anyone have a PDF or a scan or something? I've been looking all over the web, and can't find anything!

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    RE: Thunder Tiger GP40 Manual

    Anyone have any ideas? I went ahead and started exploring last night and tore down the whole engine... Got everything cleaned up and it's almost back together. I would still like to have a copy of the manual if anyone has it though!

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    RE: Thunder Tiger GP40 Manual

    Hi JFoust,
    I just came across your post.

    Could it be that you actually have a GP-42? I have a manual for one of those, and my engine is marked as a GP-42 as well. I'll be glad to send you a xerox of the manual and a separate parts sheet, if that will help you.

    My engine is only about 2 years old, so I don't know if they updated that engine or not. Check to see if your engine actually has a 42 on it instead of a 40.

    RE: Thunder Tiger GP40 Manual

    Hey Bob... It's the GP40 for sure... It's been sitting in my friend's garage for something like 10 years now. The 42 manual might work out ok though. I just looked at the engine and it looks to be about the same as the 40 as far as I can tell. Anyone else know how similar these two are?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    OK

    Send me your address and I'll send you what I have... it's a short manual and a separate parts list.
