Default My Maytag Project

I bought this engine at Denton this year and it had a busted flywheel and 2 feet broke off the base.Also the top plate was broke.
I bought a flywheel while there and had the rest of the parts I needed at home.
I got it apart and put new rings ,gaskets,paint and decals.
I polished up a few pieces that aint supposed to be but oh well.I like it.
I messed up a bit on the top decal and got it to close to the cast in numbers on the block.
But it runs good.
It was stuck when i got it. I used 80 psi air pressure and Kroil. I heated the cylinder and after about the 4th heating and cooling cycle the piston came out.
I think it turned out ok. I gota do something for a muffler and the little arrow is missing off the carb.17 bucks on ebay! Naw,I will make 1 for that!

I am considering it.Haven't been to that show in years.I understand it has grown and is a good 1 to attend.

This may be a dumb question but is there a ventilation for the fuel tank? Like a hole in the plug or something. It ran fine yesterday but when i cranked it this morning it was passing oil and fuel out of several places like it had built up pressure?

We went to this show for years and then had things happened with the club and we stopped going. We started going again in 2014. I don't think it is the size it was when we stopped going, but it is growing. We always have a good time there. Hope you can make it.

Last time I went it was at some type of a small race track place and the bathroom was a long half pipe to wiz in and a couple toilets over porta john type tanks.
It has been a while. I would say at least 2002 or so.

There is no vent in the tank proper. There is a de-flooder on the carb that returns oil to the tank, on the mixer, and on later engines a 11/6" hole drilled in the fill plug. The gasket between the base and tank top needs to be good. If the engine was run with the bolts loose, or the gasket has failed, you need to replace it.

Where is the oil and gas coming out? If at the tank to top seam, the gasket needs to be replaced. if at the starter to block area or behind the magneto backing plate, this is normal. There are no seals on the mains, so they tend to weep, especially if they are worn. They depend on the body of the fuel/oil mix to make the air tight seal between the inside of the block and the outside. use SAE 30 non-detergent or TCW-3 OIL only. No pre-mix or modern lubricants. Too thin to seal the crank, and do not do a good job .

some was under the starter gear.Not much. Bushings felt snug,I couldn't see them being tighter if replaced. I did get reminded from a friend about bumping the carb to seat it good before snugging the screws.That is where a bit of oil was visible. I had run a bit over a pint of fuel out of it and there was a small amount of oil under that starter gear and I thought I had really done something terrible wrong and it was snug,no play I could detect. But it makes sense that it could weep as there is nothing to seal it.
It starts so easy. hits strong.I have the oil to rich I am sure.
