New Way Stationary Engines

Aim - To serve and support the New Way Stationary Engine restoration community.
There was a New Way Stationary Motor inclined to Hit and Miss. It was designed that way but intermittently it would missfire and this in the confines of the beekeepers shed fired my imagination, grabbing my senses. I just loved the sound of the New Way 3.5Hp working - likely fuelled by a too rich mixture.
With each missfire came the tell tale puff of blue smoke and via the old sawbench, the beekeeping manufacturing business was underway, alive and well. Alf was in his element. Romance, nah, hard work but Hoots the New Way went a long way in firing the imagination of times past running in the present. The present, after all, that's where life is, it's not in the past, but romancing the past, that's the present if you're living it.
The priveledge of life. Present and past is now!!! - alive.

New Way Engine - Owners

Hi, I'm an enthusiast of the New Way air cooled stationary engines. These were manufactured in the early last century in Lansing Michigan USA. It is apparent there was a close association and cooperation with the John Deere Plough Company in both sales and field area of application/research. I am from Australia and recently returned from an interstate road collection trip to Victoria and South Australia. I am looking foward to the task of restoration - one is seized. I don't know how badly. I am using transmission fluid to try to free the piston.
