RE: What prop for O.S. FS-20 ?

I have an FS-20 bought new about 20 years ago.

It came without a muffler and has a straight exhaust pipe without a pressure tap.

Do FS-26 mufflers fit the straight pipe?

Mid to late 40's . Glow versions without the ignition points were sold around 1949.

RE: Wild Child

Also Citizens Band Tx's were on 27.255. If they were keyed nearby when you were flying with a regen RX your rudder would lock in

RE: stuck carb

If the above replies don't work,try cooking the carb in an old crock pot with glycol antifreeze for a few hours.
Remove all rubber and plastic parts before heating.as the glycol mar ruin them.
