Default Maytag 82 questions

I have a couple engines but this is my first Maytag. I have some questions about it. Is this the correct mixer? It doesn't look quite right to me. Should there be a grommet or something where the tube goes in the tank? Inside the flywheel it looks like the points were replaced with electronic ignition and I don't see anything that looks like it should be a governor. Thanks for your help.

What you have there is a pretty uncommon engine. That is one of the last 82's built with a Bosch magneto. Kind of a crossover into the 92's. The points are gone along with the governor and someone has adapted a electronic ignition. The carb is correct. Nice engine.

Thanks turbo. I gave $50 for the engine, so I guess putting some money in parts wouldn't be out line. I suppose the first thing should be a repair manual. The serial number is 214219. I found date listings for 72's and 92's but not 82's.

SMcARTHY,the carb/mixer you have is the correct type and will work ,someone did you a big favor, it is too early for your engine, it would have been off a early 1/2 h p maytag upright as it appears to have the fixed jet (it really can be adjusted if you take the small end cap off the carb,the adjustment needle is under that nut) where as the the correct carb for your engine would have the adjustment needle coming out through a fitting on the end so it can be adjusted easier. your carb/mixer also has the small cast air adjustment cap which is correct for that carb but is missing the adjustment rod.your carb is very rare compared to the later ones. the washer to cover the hole in the top of crankcase is made out of brass and is 3/4" diameter 1/16 thick with a 7/32 hole for the fuel pick up tube.your engine was built late in 1926 as the first 92 were built in sept 1927 ,serial # 219717. i hope you dont paint it ,brush on some automatic transmission fluid ,let it soak in a little, wipe it off .it will be perfect!!!!
i hope this helps

You got a bargain for $50. Good luck with your engine!

The best thing you can probably do to make it run again is get rid of that mag, change it over to the normal 82 johnson mag. this 82 was made in 1927, thier is no parts manuals made for the bosh 82. and no parts around period for it. Iv contacted all the big maytag gurus and they will tell you no parts for it. I have one as well that used to be my grandpas iv been looking for mag parts for years, nothing out thier for it. The 82s with johnson mag all had 3/4 crankshaft in them, some of these newer bosch mags had a 7/8 crank. its possible if you changed it over that you may need a 3/4 crank and bearing. Most of the coils in these engines are bad is what maytag mark told me. IV researched and dug up about everything possible on these. Give me a call sometime 406 391 2955 Cody
