The Twin-Cylinder Novo Engine

A twin-cylinder 12 HP Novo engine sees the light of day for the first time in 40 years.

12 HP Novo Engine
Shawn Halle's 12 HP Novo, serial number 55117, comes out of hiding after nearly 40 years in a barn in West Virginia. These engines were first introduced in 1914, and this one is believed to date from 1914 to 1915. Shawn's good friend Steve Smith, left, and Shawn's dad, Normand Halle, right, help to move lumber out of the way as the Novo is moved into position for its final removal from the barn.
