Maytag Drivetrain

Text Taken From Maytag Add

Two cylinder opposed five inch bore, five inch stroke. Actual 25 brake horse power, cylinders, pistons, crank shafts, cam shafts, etc., ground to a limit that insures absolutely accurate bearings. The crank shaft is drop forged from 30-40 point carbon steel, supported in two long, die cast Parson's white brass bearings. Connecting rod bearings are of the same material, hand scraped, assuring perfect fit. Splitdorf magneto is mounted on top of crank case, and gear driven. Water pump is located on end of crank shaft, thus doing away with one set of gears.

Intake Manifold is cast integral with cylinders and crank case, which stops all chance of leaks, pockets, etc., between carburetor and intake valves. This also assures uniform temperature of the mixture in all conditions. Two cylinder motors are economically operated require less gasoline and lubricating oil than the four cylinder-and the assembly as a whole is less complex.
