Default Help and info needed on NOVO RU Roller Engine

Thanks to those who have responded and sent along the info they had. I still would like to identify the year of manufacture and the color of this engine. The ser# is Ru7653 stamped next to the fly wheel on the right hand side as you face the fly wheel. I would also love to have a pencil tracing and closeup picture of the brass or bronze tag for this model so I might get it duplicated.

Some have indicated the color to be green,but not so with mine. I believe the original color to be a redish orange. Can any one varify

If there is any place in the world where this info might be had, it is on the site. Thanks Harry for making this all possible!!!!!!!!

I guess there is a real lack of info on this engine from the lack of response. This engine Has some problems but is restoreable. It is gonna take some time and $. It does make it a real challenge though. Soooo I'm open to any help anyone can give. I know I'm going to need a gov. mag. drive gear. Where do I start to find such a thing?

Should have all the info your looking for.

As far as parts go, There just don't seem to be any around for these engines. All parts I needed for my HU I have had to make. The color like most engines started out with a basic manufactures color but if a company purchasing a lot of engines, had them painted to their colors instead.
