Was able to pick up this New Way 3 1/2HP Engine last week, lettered on the side it says 3 1/2HP UC, it does not have a hinged case. I looked a little but did not find a reference to a UC. I did find a M

Also I am not sure what is missing for the timer and what is missing that would attach to this lever. Thanks for any help.

The contact is all there but the insulated "blade" part may have been modified over the years. It contacts the head of the screw on the exhaust push rod to complete circuit and power buzz coil. I don't know what the bracket with the two mounting holes was for. My kero version has the same bracket. I thought it may be for a gear guard, but it is not in line with gear. See pic of my kero gear area. Mine is magneto drive, so holes were not used to hold pick up. Mine is model RC. -These are later models than the hinged crankcase ones.-Cheers, Neil.

Look for sewing machine round leather belting on Ebay. I can take fan guard off mine and take measurements later today. Fairly easy to make if you have right mesh. Will post tonight. -Cheers Neil.

I did take some photos, but can't get them from phone . So photo is from a horizontal New Way, but design is exactly the same. On a 4 hp, the wire frame dia. is 210mm, the slot is 75mm wide x 135mm to top of slot. Your 3 1/2 may be the same, but check hole size on your shroud. The wire is about 2.5mm dia. The mesh is about 5 or 6mm square. The wire has for little loops formed in it to attach to shroud. The mesh appears to be soldered to wire.Your shroud should have 4 mount holes to bolt screen onto. Hope this helps.

Thanks Neil. I did find the site and have been in touch with George. I will print the manual out this weekend.
I will do some converting and see about what mesh I can find, thinking the mesh is about 1/4" or so

Just remembered, some old garden sieves used that size woven mesh, that's what I used.
