Default Maytag restoration project

I'm in the process of restoring a Maytag green porcelain round tub washer and I need some information. The tub serial number is 1105002 and the engine number is 513025. On the caution plate it's stamped like this:

16-26
11
I would like to know the tub model, year built, and also the paint color for the rest of the tub. I also need to know how to separate the inner tub from the outer base. Any information on where to get gaskets, hoses, and decals would be much appreciated. Thanks.

LW, Recheck your machine model number. I think you will find that the first digit is a letter I as I-105002 as this will make it a model 18 electric or 19 gas engine model washer. The model 18 and 19 were sold in olive green until Feb. 26, 1937 when the whole machine was changed to white color. I-105002 was built in early Feb. of 1937. Being a model 19 it should have a large aluminum shift lever to engage the agitator. The engine serial number of 513025 was made in Sept. 1933 and seems to be a replacement engine for an earlier round tub model. To remove the tub, look under the machine and you will find a square head bolt in the transmission near the bottom of the tub. remove this bolt as it locks the aluminum center shaft housing for the agitator drive shaft. With the bolt removed, you should be able to unscrew the aluminum agitator drive shaft housing from the transmission and lift the tub out. Maytag had a special wrench to unscrew the housing. You can make one if it is hard to get it unscrewed. The wrench was made from a piece of steel tubing or pipe with slots cut in it of a diameter to fit the lugs on the bottom of the housing and a set of holes in the top of the pipe to insert a smaller pipe to make a T handle to turn the wrench. I have a few parts for your washer if you need something. If you need other help contact me.
