This Russian made Novoexport engine is still brand new in the original package with all Russian writing. The engine was built in the 1950s. It was donated by Richard Mack, of Fallbrook, CA, who purchased it during what he called “The Cold War Era.” The crankcase is black plastic with a brass cylinder head. The engine package includes a black plastic charging cylinder to transfer CO2 from a larger cartridge to the smaller aluminum one that gives the .027 cc engine about 15 seconds of running time. An English translation of the instruction booklet was provided by a friend.
