They run on a buzz coil. My friend had one. As I remember his was blue and red.
It was an ornery engine. It would run at home but everytime he would take it to an engine show it would not stay running. But always at home it would run for hours.

You have a hard to find item there Bear. They are real easy items to work on, I just restored a later model 92 engine. Keep us up on the progress. If you ever get tired of it just send it my way. :D

i did get a little fire out of it today the pressed paper sleeve that the timing device is on is wore badly wich could be some of the trouble. this one likely won't see much run time. i would like to find a fruitjar maytag one of these days but then wouldn't we all
as far as maytags being hard to get along with i've got a twin cylynder that won't start unless you ground the front plug it starts on the back cyl once its running you can connect the front and away it goes:confused:

At the local show I don't remember ever seeing a fruit jar model. I think I may have seen a vertical and not realised it was a Maytag. They always have several of the newer one and two cylinder engines.

Bear...
I see you have a nice collection of small engines too. My grandparents both had electric ringer washers similar to the gas ones you have. The below picture is one my great grandparents had on the farm. I think it was originaly hand cranked but the mechanism was gone long before I came into the world. I can remember it in the barn, sunk to the leg braces in the dirt, being used to hold feed for the four cows. Dad rescued it after the cows were gone and I cleaned it up a bit and refinished it.
