I have collected Maytag engines for a long time, and for the last few years I have been using them for other things besides washing machines.

This outboard motor is my latest project. I used the cylinders, flywheel, magneto and crankcase of a Maytag Model 72A Twin, and parts from three other old outboard motors. Along with these, I used several pieces of scrap from my junk pile. The only items I bought were three bolts to fasten the gas tank, and a short piece of copper pipe for the gas line.

I like to share my experiences with fellow readers of the magazine, as I always enjoy reading of other gas engine enthusiasts' projects.
