Flywheel Forum

Novo information search

| April 2006

I recently purchased a Novo engine that was manufactured in Lansing, Mich. It is a 2-cycle upright, single flywheel, with magneto ignition.

The tag on the engine reads: "NOVO, Model RU 3-1/4-x-5 600 R, serial no. 13495." I am looking for any information, manuals, dates, etc. for this engine. James L. Smith, 235 S. Gilna Road, Corunna, MI 48817.
