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 - Consumables and Accessories

New Way  promoted quality and no doubt they had a reputation they wanted to promote and protect. Advertising was one way to promote a quality product by appealing to the logic of low maintance and benefits of the usage of quality consumables.
New Way  branded consumables included spark plugs and dry cell batteries [see image- click to enlarge] promoted as using or being the best. Documentation as supplied to buyers were generally designated "Book of Instruction and Repair Price List". This provided the New Way Owner with a comprehensive list of available spares and prices in a tabulated format along with ordering requirements to ensure accurate supply.

New Way  specified accessories included
  • Friction Clutch Pullies - A range was available dependant on the H.P of the motor
  • Plain Pullies -  A range was available dependant on the H.P of the motor
  • Governor Pully (owner could set speed)  - Customer defined shaft fitting to suit machinery.
  • "New Way " Ammeter - Sold essentially as an ongoing cost saving measure for the testing of dry cells to eliminate the wastage of cells as used on many of the early model motors.
