Default New Way engine

Hello,
I got a new engine this weekend. It's a New Way, model "D", Type "F" 4 hp, No. B5119. It's got a Holley Bro's carb on it. Did this engine have a aircleaner on it? Does anyone have a manual for this engine that I could trade a copy of one of my manuals for a copy of the New Way engine manual? I got this engine to hit about 7 or 8 times tonight but it's hard cranking I think the timing is right, but I'm not sure.

Thanks
Richard

Exclamation Re: New Way engine

I have the same engine. Mine has a funnel like galvanized cone in front of the Holley carb. It has a super fine screen soldered to the wide section of the bell, and a clamp holds the device to the carb. Starting - there is a chain attached to a lever on my carb, that pulls down on the float, allowing the carb to flood. This chain is pulled down until gas just begins to flow out the intake screen. Throttle is set for 1/2 open, and the engine is cranked. It usually starts within 2 to 3 turns

Hello,
When you say 2 or 3 turns to start it, is that pushing down the spring loaded button on top the cylinder and just cranking it or what? Ok on the chained lever I figured it did something like that. Did these engines have a choke? could you post a picture of the aircleaner?

Thanks
Richard
