Several years ago I purchased this 2-cylinder Novo engine. It has magneto ignition and a Zenith carburetor. The carburetor has no air filter so I'm not sure if it is correct. Shown on the brass tag is serial no. CW47764, 2-3/4-inch bore, 4-inch stroke, Novo Engine Co., Lansing, Mich. I have put off getting this engine running until I could get some information about the set-up and operation. So far I have found nothing about this engine. I would also be interested in knowing what its application might have been. I'm hoping some of my fellow subscribers may be able to help.
