Mel, don't worry, you'll get your parts from Hit & Miss. They can be a bit slow at filling orders but they're honest and will get you what you ordered. If its been 4 weeks, you'll probably get them any day now.

There are other suppliers. Go to the Harry's Sponsor's page here:

and you'll find several. Starbolt is a major supplier of engine parts and associated supplies but there are others as well.

Tommy is right on the mark. Great people, but it seems slow when the engine fever has taken hold. Check Starbolt and other suppliers, I have;and they're mostly pretty darn good.

Parts for a Maytag single are plentiful. A Stover CT2 isn't a rare engine, either. Harry has several parts supplier who advertise on his site, who should have what you need. You might also try reading his ads. People are advertising Maytag parts every week. Or, you could post a WANT AD. If you can't find parts for a Maytag single, you aren't trying.

There is also a notorious online auction company that is overrun with Maytag engines, parts, and other Maytag items. You'll probably get what you need cheaper, from one of Harry's advertisers.

By the way, back before the days of the internet, I helped a friend get his Stover CT2 running. Back then, we relied on the ads in Gas Engine Magazine to find our parts. We needed a rod & piston, and magneto. Guess what? We got everything that we needed from Ed Deis, at Hit & Miss. I even spoke to Ed on the phone, about the parts that we needed.

I've had good luck dealing with Hit & Miss, and Starbolt. Good folks at both places.

Exclamation Re: Hit & Miss Parts

My son ordered parts from H&M, was told 3 weeks. After the 3 weeks were up, he called. The lady answering the phone remembered the order, and had a look around. He could hear her yelling at someone " Whada you mean you can't find his order? It's been here on the shelf the last 8 days! She appoligised for the delay, we had the parts 3 days later! Keep trying them, and ask where your order is. H&M are good people, confused sometimes, but good!

My Dad is restoring a 1 1/2 HP Headless Fairbanks and Morse engine, he is currently looking for a ingnitor push arm/timing rod. This rod runs froms the cam to the ingnitor. He also is restoring a 1 1/2 HP Fairbanks throttle governor engine, he is looking for parts for this one too. He needs a push rod thats runs from the cam gear to the exhaust valve rocker arm and a throttle arm that runs form carb to the governor gear.
We are having a hard time finding parts and good connections!!
Can anyone help point us in the right direction for parts?

There are two different ignitor push rods for the headless FM engine. The earlier one is one piece, and the later one has a separate movable tip on it. One of the sponsors on this site did have them, but I don't know if they are still on the site or not.
