We present the first general search for new heavy particles, X, which decay via X → WZ0 + jj as a function of Mx and Γ(X) in pp̅ collisions at √s =1.8 TeV. No evidence is found for production of X in 110 pb-1 of data collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. General cross section limits are set at the 95% C.L. as a function of mass and width of the new particle. The results are further interpreted as mass limits on the production of new heavy charged vector bosons which decay via W′WZ0 in an extended gauge model as a function of the width, Γ(W′), and mixing factor between the W′ and the standard model W bosons.
