Default Maytag 82, How rare are they?

I am new to the hobby but have jumped in over my head, I have purchased 9 engines in the past year and am dying to get my hands on a maytag 82 but have yet to find one for sale. Even the uprights pop up on ebay once in a while and have seen a couple for sale locally but never a model 82. How rare are these engines? Or am I just in the wrong place and the wrong time?

They are out there they are not as "rare" as the uprights or the fruitjar, but or more rare than the model 72 and the 92 engines.

If I remember correctly the usually bring about $300-$350 for a complete runner.

At this point I don't know of any for sale but I will keep a look out for you if you want me to!

I'm with Danny, They are out there. Just no one is listing any at the current time. There are rare variations of the model 82 but in general like Danny says harder to find then a 72 or 92 but usually easier to find then a Upright. Go to Portland show in August you will find all you can buy. Mark

Yes they are definately out there. My thought is that they are by many considered to be at a quick glance "just a 92". I'll bet there are loads of them in garages, basements ect. Here's another of my thoughts, by WW II, the upright and fruitjars were already a collectors item, twins, 92's and 82's were common and were sent to the enemys in the form of bombs.

Yes the average long tank 9 fin goes $300-350ish, some more, some less. Now if you get into short tanks, I know of one that sold for $1,200, but it is a very nice original engine in very good condition.

Name says it! The short tank just sits below the engine, and has no extension to the length of the base. A long frame has the basic tank, with an extension of the casting to allow for mounting under a washer. The long frame tank typically is as long as the whole engine. The short does not extend under the cylinder.
