Default New Maytag serial number

Guys,

Where do I find the serial number on my 72D engine. There is a serial number on the backing plate behind flywheel that reads 24785

The serial number is stamped in the outside ring around the flywheel.

Hi Dale, When you find that number on the outer ring I would expect to see it be in the neighborhood or ball park of 834XXX give or take a few hundred or thousand or so if the flywheel and the ignition plate are original to each other.
The number you found 24785 is a number placed there by Eisemann when they built the ignition plate. Mark

Could you quote the exact number? Looking to see how close it actually is to the estimated number. Thanks, Mark

Wow looks like we had a near bullseye on the number estimate. The exact estimate would have been 834785. Your number 834086 actually dates to Nov not October There is a serial number list out there thats actually one month off on the months. You must have gotten ahold of it. Nice engine, good deal. Mark
