A few thousand of the G carb engines were built in 1916 and then the C carb was introduced. Some of the G carb engines were converted to The C carb like this one, which would have started out as a G carb, SN 2230.

Soon after the C carb came the D carb. The crank case casting was simplified but still used carb piping similar to the C carb. The first D carb engines were filled with fuel from the top like this one..

On the later D carb engines the fuel filler was changed so the filler was on the side of the fuel tank like this one.

The D carb is easily identified by the letter M in this carb casting.

Following the D carb was the first style of the common E carb. It was mounted on the same way as the D carb, and infact were used as replacement carbs on D carb engines. The first E carb used a fixed fuel jet and had a small area cast into the side of the carb, presumably to add a propane or city gas set up to it. This one happens to be on a 1 HP model, but the same carb was used on both 1/2 HP and 1 HP models

More to come

M Pavlik, Thanks for the pictures! I have seen others in green and silver and all green like this one.

I'll work on digging out some paper but I am rather disorganized. I wish it were all filed in one spot!

Are you sure your F carb engine is not 65777? My original F is serial # 59808 and the other one is 65371.


The battery and coil engines were built well into the 20's right along side the magneto uprights, the Model 72 Fruit Jar and the early 82's. The latest battery and coil upright I have seen had a serial number in the 121,000 range. The reason for the long production is because Maytag continued to make the wood tub washer along side the aluminum tubs.

Yep, I just checked again, no doubt about it, 85777 is the serial on my F carb. It may be original, or could have been replaced as well? It's Maytag, who really can tell?
There are not many out there, and one is mine so I am happy!
By the way Tom, I had a dream that Iowa was going to get some bad storms.........someday......soon.......real soon......maybe you should ship all of your engines to me in Indiana, I'll gladly pay all shipping and a few extra $$$$$$$ to make sure they are safe!

Here is an old Maytag engine I restored in the mid 80's. It was found dissassembled in a cardboard box in the attic of a shop owned by my friend's grandmother. Surprisingly, all the pieces were there and we had it reassembled and running just a few hours into the project. My father and I were restoring a 1918 Oil Pull Rumely 20-40 at the time and he had some of the correct paint left over. We decided to paint it the same color. I think the decals were worn off of it when the engine was found. The coil and porcelain pole switch were in the box with the engine as well and I suspect they may have been with the engine from day one. I'm not sure of the year of the engine or the model so I've included some pictures that will hopefully allow one of you guru's to identify it. The Serial # is 13472. The engine is in very nice shape and runs well.
Thanks for your interest, Old Willy

Old Willy,
What you have there is an early engine that probably came with the "D" style carb. It has the early fule tank lugs, a priming cup cylinder and a nice early serial number. I'd bet tha back whe it was in use, something gave out on it and the crank case, main bearing, and carb were replaced with a more modern version. I love that Oil Pull Green! I am looking for a Rumely.

I found a picture of an early "G" carb engine in original paint with the patent pending stencil. Here it is.
