Magnum .40 questions

Bought a used Magnum .40 on ebay. No instructions.
Questions:
1. What would be a good prop to use, mabye a 10X6?
2. Max RPM?
3. How to start. How many turns should needle valve be opened?
Thanks in advance!

Ideally you want a propeller that the engine will turn in the 13,000 - 16,500 R.P.M. range on the ground, yet power the airplane sufficiently.
Starting point for high and low needles is 2.5 turns from closed
