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.

GOOD READS for Restorers to build your general engine knowledge base, repair and maintance skills here are some books I would recommend. These were originally written in the early 1900s but have been reprinted so should be available with a bit of chasing eg Ebay or Amazon etc. The books are very authoratitive and cover areas very relevant to Air Cooled Engines and were written for their time and cover issues for the motors of their day.
  • Gas Engine Troubles and Installation - by J.B Rathbun
  • Gas Engine Ignition - by Norris, Winning and Weaver
  • Internal Combustion Engines - by Robert L Streeter (1915) - available as a print on demand book for about $25.
UPDATE  July 9th 2012 - We have recently added a library of New Way Documentation to the site. This includes Instructions and Catalogs and other hard to find New Way Literature. Most are watermarked but all are cleaned up and of excellent quality. ENJOY!!
Here is the library address. It is free to download. Have a browse and we hope you find something to treasure.

If you know of other sources where New Way documentation or New Way Instruction manuals can be purchased please let me know by clicking this COMMENTS tag or at so I can add to let other New Way enthusiasts know.
