You may enjoy this photo of the engine assembly at the Novo Engine Company of Lansing, Michigan, circa 1920. My  father-in-law, George Alger, is at the extreme left in the photo.

At one time, I worked in the Novo pattern shop. Subsequently, I owned three of the one cylinder Novo engines, one being on a pump rig, and entered them in the Central Michigan Antique Tractor & Engine shows.

I have subscribed to GEM since its inception in 1966. A very interesting and informative magazine.
