Marvin Maitre and W. J. Rundle, Do you still collect Maytag engines, or know anyone interested? I am hoping to identify the specific model (if different models existed) and valuate a twin horizontal engine, with the hope of selling it. I'm in SE MN and can correspond via phone or email, if you were willing. Thanks! Sean
