Default Maytag 92 flat belt pulley

Is there or was there a flat belt pulley for the Maytag 92? I have a flat belt two wheel grinder that I was thinking about powering with the model 92.

Thanks in advance, Jerry

They did have a flat belt for the 92 engine. There was a factory version on the early 92 engines and some very early engines may have even used an 82 flat belt pulley that was bored out to fit the 92 hub. I think the factory version for the 92 started with an S part number and the 82 used a K number.

Scott, You have it right. Model 82 washers used flat pulley and flat belt. Here is the twist, Orville Butler's research shows that the 1927 model 82 introduced the double bearing crankshaft Multi-Motor. The model 80 series washers also introduced the model 90 style wringers in mid 1927. I think the double bearing crankshaft Multi-Motor (92) engine was introduced shortly before the 90 series washers came out in September 1927. These would have had the S-264 flat pulley on them as the 90 series was the first to use "V" belt. There were kits available to convert the 80 series flat belt models to "V" belt. There were many changes in the model 80 series washers, and by the time the 90 series washers came out, the "V" belt drive was the only difference as they were using the 90 style wringer and the 92 style Multi-Motor engine.
The part numbers for flat belt 82 Multi-Motor pulley was K760 and K946 depending on which hub was used for flywheel.
There were 105 of the 92 style Multi-Motors built prior to Sept 1, 1927.
September 1927 is date given for start of production of the 90 series washers, but no day of the month is given so it could be higher and they could of made model 82 and 92 washers during the same time frame on different assembly lines. I don't think the 92 was ever available as a replacement for 82 engines except in the "V"belt pulley to use with change over kit. So Yes the 92 did have flat pulley at one time.

My Maytag magneto upright is all original (never restored) and the original owner bought it from Maytag to run his sewing machine and it has had a flat belt pulley on it. Can't find a part number on the pulley so it may have been supplied to Maytag by a jobber.

Attached is a picture of it:

Is there a source of for an old one or repro? I see a vendor on EBay is selling a 3 inch paper pulley, but I doubt that it has a tapered bore.

Thanks for the info.
Jerry

bsatom and Cespilot,
I have done a little research on flat belt pulleys. A very good reference on Maytag Multi-Motor engines is "Maytag Multi-Motors, second edition by Larry Benton" available thru the Maytag Collectors Club online site. Price is $43.00 but well worth it for Maytag Multi-Motor information, 374 pages.
Page 301 shows pulley S-174, 2 7/16 inch in diameter with 2 inch face and 5/8 bore. Page 309 show another pulley S-198, 2 5/8 diameter with 2 5/8 face and 5/8 bore. Does your pulley fit either of these specs. neither pulley has spokes and are solid like your pulley. The S-174 looks very close to your pulley and the hub is off set.
page 330 shows flat pulley for model 92 engine with 4 1/2 inch diameter and 1 1/2 inch face with 1 1/4 inch bore. Pulley sits on hub for flywheel the same as "V" belt pulley. Pulley has three spokes. I hope this helps both of you.

Hi Lawnboy,
I checked out page 301 in my Maytag Multi-motor book then measured the flat belt pulley on my Upright Magneto motor and the measurements are identical! So thanks to you I now know my motor has the S-174 Factory Maytag flat belt pulley on it which adds to the original authenticity of my motor. We have seen and heard small comments on how Maytag would sell just their motors (without the washing machine) as stationary engines for other uses around the farm and home. Mine is one of those stationary engines purchased from Maytag to run a sewing machine as stated by the original owner. Interesting Maytag history for sure!! The comprerssion on my engine is the most of any of my maytags....so I feel the original owner did not use it much. It runs great.
Again thanks for the pulley info!

Thanks for the info. That will help when I run into one. I don't have any pulley, but I am on the lookout for one. My current project is to power an ice cream freezer with v belt. I have a grinder and blacksmith forge blower that are both powered with 2 inch flat belt pulleys.
