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.

HOME of the New Way Motor Company

Lansing Michigan  - A State on the great lakes of Canada and U.S.A.
It seems though, that the New Way Motor Company  focused their creative juices toward the land in their early years of development of the air cooled engine and it was some time before the water came into focus. While their advertisements show boats shooting the waves in adventurou style in essence though a 5 Hp motor was certainly admirably suited to works and pleasure in rivers and lakes.
The following short newsaper article of 1924 (TROVE) heralds the advent of the New Way Marine engine.
By 1924 New Way was well known in Sth. Aust. with a large following from agriculturalists. In about 15 years from 1907 about 1500 New Way Engines were sold in that state alone such was threir reputation. In J.H. Horwood and Co., New Way had a well respected agent and bore driller who advertised extensively. I expect the expansion to marine application by reputation, would have recieved ready acceptance in the Murray /Darling river systems.  CLICK to EXPAND SIZE
