Question Re: 1 HP upright Maytag information and photos

Hi looking for info on a 1 hp I have it has no serial # on it
looks like a maytag but not sure might be a Elgin, the bolts
that hold the tank to the base are like a flat head screw. Any info would be great might be interested in selling.

Kevin the Elgin 1 HP mufflers are reproductions from Bob Kubish.

I'm still trying to figure out information on my upright. So far I have concluded it is a "d" carb. Not sure what year it is or if the colors are correct.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Chris

Chris I'd say it's 1917. Generaly considered the correct colors would be the tank red, flywheel and cylinder all blue. However the earlier ones may have been tank red with a silver cylinder, all red, or all blue. Your choice. Tom and Mark or someone else may have better answers. Will sya don't think the flywheel was mixed colors. It was all one color, whatever it was I believe. What's usually harder to descerne is the cylinder fins as the original paint was burned off fairly early to rust and nothing being left of it to for us to figure it out.

Regards, Kevin

Hi All: Its winter time and I am about ready to start doing some thing to my 1 HP Stove Leg. Im missing a very important part, the connecting rod. I can sit myself down and try and error one or just beg some fine person to supply me with diamentions, or a tracing with which to make a pattern. With out a con rod it is a worthless shalf queen. The serial number is in the 77 series that will place some where in 1919. Any help will is greatly appreciated. Thank you Jim

That`s what I like about this world is that in a hobby there is always some one looking for a buck. the engine cost me nothing and when it dose run I will probably give it my grandson or set it on the shelf and let the estate deal with. Im not spending any more on this engine, its 97 years old and I`m 72 .

Action Jim S
Just a note about the Maytag Multi-Motors book second edition. The book is a wealth of information on all Maytag Multi-Motors. It covers uprights, 82 type, 92 type and twin cylinder models. Also has section on Multi-Motors used by varies Lawn mower manufacturers and etc. Serial number information, Pictures of most engine parts with part numbers and many also have detailed drawings. Book has a total of 374 pages and is published by the Maytag Collectors Club. The book was compiled by Larry Benton a long time employee of Maytag and a knowledgeable Maytag Collector. I don't remember the cost, but it costs the Maytag Collectors Club about the price they sell it for. It may seem pricey, but you can not find most of the information in it anywhere else. The book is a must for any Maytag engine collector.

Thanks for the reply Lawnboy, but I am not to be considered a Maytag collector. These little engines are not all that complicated in respect to the engines I deal with on a regular bases. The 4 7/8 pin to pin I have determined, It`s the dog leg angle that will take a little more time to determine. A good friend of mine passed away a few years back and before so doing left me a ton of Maytag literature including serial numbers, specs and part numbers, and no were to be found is the measurement of the con rod. so my friends what I plan to do now is to sit down with my trusty jack knife and wittle one from pine wood, melt a pot of brass, Bobs your uncle done. I just needed to no what the angle is to speed up the process.
Thanks Jim
