Default Bvm f-86 63"

I am setting up a BVM F-86 63" and have a few questions I have not been able to find answers for. I don't have a manual.
Do the gear doors stay open with the gear down, or do they close?
I plan on a 70N turbine. Can anyone give me a general location for the location of the turbine? I can play around till it balances, but was hoping to capitalize on peoples prior experience to get a starting point.

All three gear doors close back after gear comes down.

I have a 60 in mine but can get an exact measurement if you'd like. If I forget in the morning though it will be late next week. Which 70 will you be using?

Kit or ARF?

And, as always, BV is a great resource to just call and ask.

The website has CG's and throw's for just about every airplane they sell.

John, mine is the ARF and I use the BVM bypass so my turbine is in the only place it can be really, but using the hatch opening as reference, the exhaust nozzle of the turbine is 1.5" ahead of the rear edge of the opening. The front of the can (not starter) is 15-15.5" from the front of the hatch opening.

Thanks for the information. The BVM site does give the throws ands CG, if I could only find them again!! I spent three hours last night testing every link I could find on the page and could not relocate the information, hence the post.
I plan on the new KingTech K-70 when it comes out, it has a 3" diameter can.
This information allows me to keep puttering till the turbine gets here.
I assume from the information in the previous post that the pipe will start near the rear of the hatch area.
Anyone have a dimension on the length of the pipe?
Thanks again,
John
