The Maytag Company of Newton, Iowa manufactured small two-cycle gasoline engines primarily for use on washing machines. These engines appeared first as an upright single around 1911 and the horizontal twin was terminated in 1952

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
