Default Odd Maytag engine question

I have searched here and can't seem to find an answer. A friend of mine claims Maytag made a limited run (one or two year only, less than a 1000) engine in which the gas tank had pegs or spikes on the corners that you would push into the ground. He called it a Multi-motor model 11 and I think he said 1910 or so. I know that the model number refers to the washing machine, but he claims it's the engine model. I thought of a stove leg upright, he said the cylinder is at an upward angle. OK... I showed him a Model 92? Looks like that but with the mentioned "pegs" on the corners of the base.

My engine stash of all brands of engines consist of the required two Maytags, a single cylinder and a two cylinder. I guess I need an upright in order to have a complete Maytag collection. But, I read most of the post here on the Stak, and have never heard mention of such an engine.

Any thoughts. Thanks, Bob.

Could it be a fruit jar engine/upright? Bob

I showed him some pics, no not a fruit jar. He said he has some specs/manual from Maytag showing such an engine. He is a smart guy and very mechanically inclined, works at an appliance store that sold/sells Maytag. They have a small collection of old Maytag washers including a wood tub one. I think he needs to reread his literature.

I'll stop in soon and have him show me what he is talking about. I was hoping to get some "ammo" here first.

As far as I know Maytag did not make a base like that. Some one could have put pegs or lugs on a base. I have Larry B's books on Maytag Mulit-Mortors, there is nothing in them like that.

Don't think they ever made such an engine. Not 1910 for sure because the first Maytag/Elgins did not come out till 1915. If anything the pegs or spikes could have been added to regular base engine to stick it into the ground for display and running at an engine show or etc. See what you can find out and report back. Maytag made a lot of different versions of the upright for sale to other manufacturer's but 1910 is out of Maytag engine dates.
