Default Maytag model 72 D-A

I have a model 72 D-A that is missing the coil, condensor, and armature. The serial # on the Eisemann flywheel is 111571 X. Since this engine was partly torn down when I got it, I'm not sure this is the correct flywheel. Would anyone know if it is correct and where I may find the missing parts? This engine is on a Zip push mower manufactured in Baxter Springs, KS. Thanks

Take it the armature back plate is there? Just as well, the coils are typically bad in these and you would need to secure a new coil which is about $150. The condenser another $15.00 or so, and an armature another $15 maybe. Unless its something special otherwise in my opinion not worth the restoration. Put the money into a running one. Hard to tell if it was originally an Eisemann or a Wico. Serial number on Flywheel will just be able to determine the year only. My two cents. Kevin

Without knowing if the flywheel or mag is original, you probably would need to replace both the backing plate assembly and flywheel as a matched set. You cannot mix the 72 D and DA mags and flywheels, they have a different ID and magnet. The basic engine is the same for all 3 mag types, you just need to use the flywheel and backing plate for the same model. You might be better off finding a blown motor and try getting the magneto assembly. To buy new is not worth it if you do not know the type. Cost wise, you probably could get a running engine for the cost of a new mag coil, plus you have to figure in the cost of the armature core and condenser as well. Not worth it in my book, unless the engine has a sentimental value.
