First start in who knows how long?, twin cylinder maytag multi-motor, model 72,, in original unrestored condition, the maytag twin is a very smooth running machine, due to it's opposed piston and cylinder design, as a unit they can't be beat, machine & engine that is, this engine came new on a washing machine, as found it appered to be in very good condition but to be later discovered, that was not the case, gettin' past the shop worn,rusty,bad paint,parts missing, it needs a lot of tender loving care (TLC), I guess you get it by now, I do like these old antique maytags, kick start, two cycle, air cooled, 16-1 gas oil mixture, smokey, smelly, oily, and only 5/8 HP, it don't get much better, oh yes the engine is equipped with an eisemann model 72-DA flywheel assembly and magneto backing plate, these are very good magnetos if kept clean and in good repair, on this engine the the ignition coil was a little weak, so I closed the gaps on the sparkplugs .020 & points .012, and remember boths plugs fire at the same time, the crankcase bushings are worn out so I close the air control cap on the air intake tube to make up for the extra air, leave a comment, subscribe, pass it on,,,,, from the east coast of Arkansas, duck tape girl update, she got two wooden mules at the county hog auction last week, she needed them to go along with her crazy scrap iron horse,,, that mind movie goes on and on,,,
