PA-18 with Lycoming 0235 engine - Owner's Handbook Needed

You asked about the owners handbook (not required but good to have). Do you have the required Flight Manual? So many people confuse the two. The flight manual is required, the owners handbook isn’t.

I don't know but assume the fuel system and ops limits are common, and the engine is the primary variable. That link should help with the O-235 operation and maintenance. The valve clearances should be checked at annual - not self adjusting. Other than that they are dependable. Many go beyond TBO. Not an A&P just my experience.

Dunno about the PA18, but the official "airplane flight manual" for my 1953 Cessna 180 is a one-page document.
Having it aboard satisfies the requirement for "operating limitations" (the O in ARROW), the owners manual does not.
Here's a pic of it:

Yes, ALL models of the Super Cub require a flight manual, per the Type Certificate Data Sheet. The FM is basically a single page, and may be specific to serial number.

I don't know if there ever was an owners manual for a PA-18-105 or -105 Special. The Owners manual is not a required document, the Flight Manual is required to be in the aircraft any time it is being operated.
