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.

The New Way Motor Company in its infancy produced excellent engines that were over-engineered. Horsepower may have been small but the engines were large. That said because they were air cooled they were still small and or light by comparison with their Water cooled counterparts.

As time progressed New Way substantially reduced the weight per horsepower ratio such that by the end of the 1920's they were prodicing a very compact and light twin cylinder vertical engine.

As an exercise we have run a chart that depicts the totals by HP of all New Way engines registered no matter what the format. (ie Vertical, Horizontal, Single or Twin.)
