Winching 1922 6hp Novo

| 1/7/2020 9:36:00 AM


Reader Ray Fisher wrote us in response to my comments last issue about engines adapted for duty outside their intended design. Case in point is a 1922 6hp Novo Ray owns that worked the Arizona mines: “Check out the photos of the 1922 6hp Novo (serial no. 53031) adapted to winch duty for mining and construction. This engine is a good runner. I have owned it a long time at my mining museum here in Tucson, Arizona.”
