Default Citabria and YS question

Hello all. I have 2 questions.

1) I recently aquired a Citabria that was built from a kit. It has a span of 69" and a length of 48. It is old and never flown. Any ideas about who made kits for this plane?????

2) I also ended up with a YS 120 and no operating information. I went on the net and could not find any info. Where would I get a manual for this engine???

Thanks for any help.

I agee with Scar; sounds like the Sig Citabria. There's a Sig Citabria post on the "Kit Building" forum. Take a look see if is similar to yours.

Thanks for the help guys. That is the plane I was looking for. Not quite the info on the YS I was looking for but it will get me in the right direction. My engine is an older model that uses the little clips for the valve retainers instead of the newer style the have regular valve retainers.

ryanpilot,

Try asking your engine question in the YS Direct Support in the "Engine" Forum. They have been more than helpfull with any questions I've been able to come up with on my YS engines.

Thanks. I did not realize there was a YS exclusive. I guess I should have guessed that as there is everything in RCU
