Hello All, Just signed up today after searching for info on biplanes and I was amazed of the amount of people and vast knowledge on this board. Recently I was at an auction where they were selling everything in a museum from covered wagons, cannons to aspace suit from the Apollo mission. In the auction was a 1975 jungster VI biplane and I kept going back to it all day looking it over and when they got to it to sell, I ended being the high bidder and bought it. I was really excited (the wife, not so much) but when I got it home and removed the motor cover a friend of mine said that the magnetos were gone. I did some checking with the owners of museum and auction people and was told they were probably removed so asnot being able to start itin the museum. It has a 250 lycoming engine and I don't have a clue where to start looking for parts. The plane has less than 200 hrs on it.

Welcome to the site Tom. Some pictures would be good. I'm not familiar with the Jungster VI. What info is on the engine data plate? That is the place to start for engine parts. Do you have plans with it?

Hello, there is a data plate by the head rest with engine # and I have alot of pictures I'll post. I don't have any plans on the plane but it is complete and the gentleman that owned the plane in the museum flew it not very long ago, but unfortunetly passed away. I'll post pictures and maybe someone can tell me where to go and what to look for.
Thanks, Tom

There should be a data plate on the engine itself too. Usually on the upper side of the crankcase.
