Last one, basically the same, only with straight pipes, with 45 cuts at the tops, chrome! Paint is a sparkle ruby red, will ad pics soon! This engine would ADD an AWESOME look to running anything. Or as a standalone engine that is just so cool to watch / run! This is a special HOT ROD hybrid Maytag, from a Model 72 w/inverted, specially ported heads & RECHARGED MAGNETS!In the wheel for optimum spark, along with new coil/s. WHAT A NEAT FUN ENGINE, sure to draw attention!
A lot of these engines get restored looking real nice, but these 2 important steps on the twin engines are overlooked, seeing access to a magnet recharger is just NOT available, and new coils for these twins are very expensive and hard to source, and most of the originals are dead. What you end up with is a 70 year old weak spark that keeps the engine from running like it should.
This one sparks LIKE NEW! So you'll be lucky to have it as one to own! The engine was gone completely through and redone right from an "ole timer" that has a passion for restoring these Maytags. Engine is ready to go to a show or impress your friends or neighbors, what a conversation piece! These original engines were mounted on the bottom of Maytag washing machines in the early to middle of the 19th century and used in rural America where a lot of people just didn't have electricity.
Usually the lady of the house would have the job of kick starting this engine in order to wash the clothes. Will be gone tomorrow, get one while you can! Optimal 2 cycle oil mixture is 16-20 to 1, with 16 being preferred so it will smoke a little :0. I have some other neat Maytags, some cool Hybrids, and little model engines, keep an eye out, or ask me.There will only be a few of these available and that is it, these are not easy engines to make up.
