Default Maytag Upright with no serial number

The title says it all. I have been looking for an upright for a long time and finally found one I could buy. I have it tore down and sandblasted all of the cast pieces. I know the serial number should be on the face of the flywheel but it is nowhere to be found. We're some of them like this? Could this be an early engine? Was there anyone reproducing flywheels at some point that I am unaware of?

Thanks in advance for any info.

I don't know how true it is but I was told if there is no serial# it is an Elgin! For what it is worth. Maybe someone else will chime in and clear this up. Good luck. Arlie

That makes me feel better. I did find a book on uprights on Maytagshed.com. The book is out of circulation but you can open each chapter and get a small part to read. One of the chapters stated that many collectors felt the fly wheels with no numbers came from "field repairs and replacement". That's got me thinking if true, why did so many have to be replaced.

Also if anyone has that book, I would love to have a copy.

Usually the flywheels with no # indicate a replacement repair flywheel from the factory. I think very few left the factory with no serial number.

If you look at the number of upright made " about 100,000 ". There not to many flywheels out without a number.
