Serial number should be on side of hub if it hasn't been molested. If serial number is on face of flywheel than may be some parts of it are Maytag. But it does look all Elgin.

Like others have said, definitely looks like an Elgin. As seen here



Notice the carb is different from the Maytag upright carb variations. Also, the castings and shape of some areas looks slightly different.

Tom S posted a nice write up on early Maytag Uprights which starts with an Elgin like yours, check it out here:

And here is another which shows some Elgins in the 1HP Write up:

Nice find.
