I just restored this engine featured in the ad. It is a Model CR rated up to 5hp. The engine runs on kero, starts on gas. I dont have the correct carg (Told it is same as early chevrolet?) nor the dual compartment fuel tank.
The engine flywheel is six spoke, covered by a round tin cover. behind the flywheel is a squirrel fan. Air is directed up and over the cylinder fins and head. The cylinder is cast like the older new way engines in that discs/spacer rods were stacked to form a finned casting. The "F" style head has caged removable valve units. The piston has 3 sets of rings; 2 rings per groove. The rings can be turned in each groove to stagger ring grooves. Rod is a hinged adjustable babbit ; accessed thru hand cover for easy maintainence.I matched original color to a "Royal Blue " (krylon) and cylinder is silver. Ignition is horshoe American Bosch Magneto. The New Way company was going broke in 1919. I have read that some employees kept it going til early 20's. This was the last attempt to built a "portable, air cooled self contained engine; which had high horsepower /lb weight! Engine runs great!RESTOGREEN See attached photo
