SNAKE IN THE HOPPER


| January/February 1988



Novo 1 HP Water hopper  engine

Ernest Felterman of 126McGeeDrive, Patterson, LA70392 recently acquired this Novo 1? HP s/n 56960. 'I got more than I bargained for, though, because a 4' chicken snake had set up residence in the water hopper. I discovered this after I had reached into the hopper to retrieve the crank.' Below, the restored engine, at right, the snake before and after exiting!
