    Hi, wmvol. Here is attached Nakajima ha-25 handling manual. This was an engine for early type ki-43.
    For the later types, there was Ha-115. The manual is still under search for me!

    Hi, Micdrow!
    I'm glad you are fine:)

    Hi Shinpachi, many thanks on the manual. Yeah Im doing ok, many thanks for asking. :D Actually two or three years ago I got to see this aircraft up close and personal as this aircraft was on display at the EAA museum for a few years till they changed up the display and traded it for a Spitfire. Not sure what musuem its on display wth now.
