I think that's actually a Centaur tractor, with a New Way engine.

Yes, it is the remains of a Centaur F. Would have been made between mid 24 and the end of production 25/6 range. It's a NewWay model CH engine.

That's a very restorable tractor and you don't see many of them - the tractor part looks complete. I've got one of similar vintage and yours looks in better shape than what I'm starting with.

It'd probably be easier and cheaper to find a complete replacement CH engine as a parts donor as the one on it looks to have been stripped. Running engines pop up every now and again on Enginads or Ebay for around $350; you'll have $350 in just finding a good mag and carb separately.

I'm looking closer at the cylinder - that doesn't look like a CH cylinder - the base & everything else looks right but the intake and exhaust ports are on the wrong sides, it looks too tall, there shouldn't be a fan shaft, etc. It looks like someone put a DF or even earlier cylinder on the CH base. Definitely need to replace that.

And it looks like you're actually missing part of the transmission coupling.

That isn't a lovejoy coupler. That should be a twin disc clutch. The only thing there is the disc and the driven piece that is mounted to the trans.

I would love to own an early New Way powered centaur. Glad you decided to go ahead and restore it. Good luck with the project, should be a good one.--Cheers-Neil.

Ray, look back around where the right handlebar bolts to the frame. The tractor serial number will be found on the top of the rail, usually behind where the handle mounts. I can tell the date from that. It's going to be a 24/25 with that style clutch.

F625678 breaks down to model F 6/25 was the mfg date and 678 was the number built in 1925. This was built in June of 25 and the 678th tractor built that year. They started over with the build numbers every year so a total production is hard to figure.
