The same engine, but the kick start pedal is different on the 19.

Exclamation Re: maytag hit and miss motors

The type 92 was the longest production run of an internal combustion engine without a major design change. if I remember correctly, from around 1919 to in the area of 1952, although I hears some were built into the 1960s from left over parts, from an old Maytag mechanic. The changes were in the fuel tankbases and tops, and kick start pedals and gears, and I minor change in the starter gear cover. All 92s make 3/4 HP when firing constantly (around 1200 RPM) Speed will vary with load.

If you do use the engine to power the ice cream maker, be sure to aim the engine cooling air flow away from your ice cream maker. if you load the 92 heavily, it WILL get hot !

Maytag model 92

Point Gap: .020th
Plug Gap: .020th
RPM: Approx. 1,050
Maytag Model 92 Multi-Motor, August 1927 Through August 1937

Maytag Introduced The model 92 single cylinder horizontal kick start in August-September 1927 Assembly #3902 It was rated 3/4 h.p. and is a 2 Cycle design engine with a 2 1/2" bore and 2"stroke. The Bosch FY-ED4 magneto was standard on the model 92. The model 92 was the first Maytag washer motor to have as part of the engine a kick pedal for starting. The kick pedal of the model 82 is earlier but it was part of the washer not the engine. The 92 was used on models 92, 62, B, G, 16, 26, 31, 11,
N11, 110, 19, 11.111 and 33 washers. The engine was adaptable
to each model of washer by changing the fuel tank.

The fuel tanks came in three versions, # S-231 for the model 92 and model B washers, # S-279 for the model, G, 16, 19, 26, 11.111 & N-11 washers and # S-284 for model 31, 33 and the Toy Racer. There is a fourth tank also part numbered S-279 and it is different from the commonly found S-279 tank. What the reason for this variation was and why a unique part number for it was never assigned is not known. This odd tank is hard to find.

Interesting variations appear on these engines with two being of significant interest. The earliest feature or variation earns the early 92 engines their nick name, The Side Exhaust. There were two exhaust manifolds used on these engines. The S-252 "Elbow connection" as Maytag called it or side exhaust manifold as its called today and is the earliest version and was used for only a short period of time from August 1927 to March 1928. The S-260 is the second version and replaced S-252 at approximately 266000. The side exhaust engines are eagerly sought after. There are other features specific to the side exhaust that are found only on an early 92. But too numerous to go into here.

The second major variation is the model 19 found late in production 1936 to 1937. The Model 19 has a different Kick pedal, segment gear and segment cover. Part numbers S-295 / S-296 / S-297 The pedal and segment gear resembled those of the later twin cylinder engines. This change was necessary to adapt the engine to the model 19 Washer.

There were two caution plates and a variation. Part #12903 is the first for the models 92 and began at about 281000 and had the 92M embossed in it. And later #13474 this plate had blank spaces to allow for the hand stamping of the various model numbers. Then for the model 19 part #13474 was modified by cutting the mounting tabs off the bottom of the plate so it would fit under the Maytag Script of the S-297 segment cover. The caution plates did not specify a model of the engine but rather was the model tag of the washer that particular engine was installed on.

There are many other differences in the production run of the model 92, but these will do as a highlight.

See the book Maytag Multi-Motors by Larry and Marge Benton for more interesting information on these engines. Available through the Maytag Collectors Club.
