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 JEWEL - Decorative Detail

New Way Jewel Open Crank Decoration 
New Way Jewel was supplied in both open and enclosed crank. Some open crank engines have a decorated metal cover with the New Way virtual trademark flowers painted proudly and clearly.
New Way Motor Company philosophy virtually dictated (advertised) that their motors should not only be good but that they should also look good. 

To the right (much appreciated and thanks to Neil H) is an accurate tracing of the painting done on the curved metal cover on a 1½ Hp Jewel Open Crank engine. These covers were simply a wide metal band and did not provide any real dust protection like the enclosed crank engines but rather would have stopped oil and grease from splattering around the motor. The flower is 3¼ inch high and the base colours are green and yellow and white.
