I didn't use a Maytag,thought it was a little too wide,but I do have a single cylinder Maytag in the garage now,it's got a bad mag. I wish I had a pic of the Briggs&Stratton set-up it was a doozy no brakes,had wooden footrest where the crank should be,no clutch,had a deal to hold the intake valve open to get started,used a choke cable from a car for the throttle belt drive via a whizzer wheel pulley and a mandrel set-up for gearing.All this happened in the early fifties no hand brakes then,but sure was fun.
