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 Ways - Un-registered or Extinct

Hello from Down Under where we are just leaving behind a beautiful Winter.
The registry is slowly climbing in numbers with 260 registered worldwide.

New and Unusual fairly Recent Additions - one only of each 

  1. Australian New Way - Manufacturer Horwoods of SA - (see previous articles)
  2. Series "F" Model "C" Type "F" - a 4.5 Hp engine
    • Not the standard version Series "F" - a very early release
    • Radial top fins in lieu of parallel top fins
    • 1 piece cylinder and hinged crankcase like the 1907 release 2.5 Hp Type "C" vertical in leiu of the standard model that has a separate cylinder and crankcase
    • Different Oil filler design etc etc
    • It is in the registry with the series "F" group SN "C3070"
  3. Series "A" Model "C" Type "H" - a 6.0 Hp engine
    • The 6Hp is still identified as a CH like the 5 Hp of this series
This means that two engines have been taken off the possibly extinct list from last year. The list is down to about 6 as shown here.


Don't forget if you have any documents you think we could put in the library we would love to hear from you.We just need you to scan the originals and email or post them to us. We will then make them available in the library.

Enjoy
