Default Maytag Weekend Project

My 82/92 Maytag....

Well just finished my weekend project. Not telling how many weekends...

I built this from spare parts that I have had laying around. I did find some differance in some of my parts. I have posted some phots for you to look at it. The long base is listed as the same part # but look close, these were the long bases for the first Model 92 Washers. So can someone tell me which is the oldest??? I have also posted a YouTube video for you all to see and hear her run. Still have some bugs to work out..as it only wants to only run for about 30 sec and then floods out.

Tell me what you think.

David

Thumbs up Re: Maytag Weekend Project

I tried that when I first bought my house. Had a 92 that smoked like the dickens. I jambed the exhaust pipe in a mole hole, and let her rip for about 20 minutes. When I came out, smoke was pouring out of about 10 holes in my yard, and a neighbors as well. Didn't see no moles, but didnt get any more holes either! Works on chipmunks too!

That is neat. I have done that on a couple too and it makes a good show piece on its side like that.

Here are three different 92 tanks plus the long base twin tank. The chrome one is the earliest, followed by the one that is harder to see, and then the curved one is the last long base style used on the single cylinder. The remaining one is the long base twin front end.

How do you get away with turning 90 degrees? Do you use a 82 piston or something?

How bout it David, Did you use an 82 piston or the 92 piston?

I used 82 pistons in the ones I did. Took a die grinder and carved a tranfer port on the corresponding place on the crank case to let the fuel charge enter the cylinder.
