Gnome Mono Instruction Book - Including Postage and Packing from NZ

$ 69.95 AUD

This is a proper, professionally bound, 240 page book. The quality of photos is exceptional – in fact the entire quality of the book is brilliant. This is literally an opportunity to own a brand new copy of an almost 100 year old book.

 

This is a must have book for anyone with any interest in WW1 aircraft and engines. Although it specifically applies to the 100 hp Gnome, the information contained within, is fairly generic for many types of rotary engines.

 

 

It starts with a general description, then explains the operation of the engine, installing it in an aircraft, how to operate it from a pilots point of view, maintenance, dismantling the engine and plenty of technical information. Lots of photos and technical drawings.
