I really want to see some pics.of your plane. Love the Citabria Pro!

Check out this video of the old Clancy Lazy Bee. Can't believe he would still run this engine, let alone fly it.

First replace the plug. If that doesn't work, try fresh fuel. The nitro is no problem for that engine.

I'd run it. Just readjust your needles. That fuel has more oil than car fuel which is what I run in my nitro vehicles anyway. Have yet to smoke an engine. Seen a lot of people that do though.

Probably better to ask at the other giant sites. In guessing, I bet a 27x10 would be close. I use Mejlik carbon props on my big stuff. A lot of guys have gone to Falcon.

Smooth engine for sure. Know a guy that has one. He had to replace the reeds with Boysens because they frayed. Not a lot of run time on the engine. 21x8 or 10 was the prop. Can't remember which.
