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 OWNERS - Help requested

Fellow Enthusiasts,
As a service to current owners and those with a new found New Way Engine I am endeavouring to set up a reference table with basic specs to enable ready identification of New Way Engines, even the very rare and those in a very sad rusty state. In other words the table will provide points of reference for 
all models of New Way Engine.

If you have a New Way and especially if you know the Bore, Stroke or Flywheel Diameter I would appreciate the following information or as much as you can:-
  • Series/Model/Type (as applicable to your engine)
  • Cylinder Bore
  • Piston Stroke
  • Flywheel Diameter
  • Horse Power (HP) - if known
  • Motor Serial No.  - if known
Check out the New Way identification table [Click] for New Way detail listed so far and see if you can help with any corrections or new data.
Please email me details at
