Gary Bahre Novo Update

Gary Bahre called to let us know that the Novo is very close to running condition.  He has welded the broken iron parts of the carburetor, built a buzz coil ignition system, repaired the fuel pump, cleaned out the gas tank, and make a 3 3/4" inch freeze plug for the bottom of the gas tank.  He could have purchased a factory plug in that size, but the minimum order was $100!   He has the bearings fitted, and needs to add a primer next to the sparkplug.  He is going to bolt it to some timbers before he fires it up so it doesn't walk around.  Gary expects to have it ready to crank in about two weeks, and plans to show it in August at Pinckneyville.
