I recently aquired this amp.  I found a burnt resistor on the main board.  Problem is I can't find the resitor value.  If some one has this unit and would read the color code or a better schematic I would be appreciative.

  Toss it out, its a non-certified improperly filtered CB amp. Just go out and buy a good FCC certified amp and save us all the problems of using one of those amps.

Thanks

Agreed- it is not usable for any band except 10M unless you build up or  buy a set of low pass filters for each band and have a means for switching them in. Without the filters, it's a non-certified harmonic generator. RM also has a penchant for rating output power at 2X what it should be in order to be clean.
If you want to use it on 10M, the manual is on-line. Google found it immediately.

To actually answer your question , www.cbtricks.com has many experimental schematics and has the one you need.

To my knowledge RM Italy never made a KL-550, however the do make a KL-500. All schematics are available on their WebSite WWW.RMITALY.COM

http://www.rmitaly.com/download/manuals/KL500-manual_rel_500.pdf

Good luck repairing the amp.
