Mr. Beaty,
If you would be kind enough to send both manuals I will get them in digital format and share. Please feel free to insure them as well as proof of delivery. I will be happy to reimburse you when I send them back.

On your CLS447, I have a AC447 and would like to know if you recommend different props and if so what size/pitch. I have been using an ultraprop 4 blade with 12 degree pitch and also a tennessee wood 2 blade 60x34r. Just trying to squeeze every ounce of hp on my 447 engine.
Tpknueven wrote on Kevin_Richey's profile.
Saw your post a year ago about the gyro with the HKS turbo being for sale. I would assume its sold by now. I might be interested in the project or at least an HKS engine for my project of a light weight single.
