Default Maytag Twin Long Base 1947?

Hi,

I bought a maytag twin this weekend. 150 bucks. Runs great. Strange though. It's a 1947 model... but it has the long base on it? It doesn't appear to be monkeyed with but appears original? I didn't think that late of twins had long base tanks

That is correct. Most long base twins are late because they were built as "replacement" engines for worn out singles.

Nice find, let's see some pictures. It took me a couple years of trading up and down, but now I have a 72, 82 and 92 as longframe version in my stable.
