maytag washer motor

My brother-in-law has a motor (engine?) from an old maytag washing machine- no machine just a two cycle-one cylinder engine. It runs now ---pop, pop, pop, until you put pressure on the flywheel, then it smooths out and gains rpms--just as it should. He is looking for an aircleaner and spark plug--just to have on hand. Plug has standard-sized threads I think, but where newer ones have porcelain, it is metal, and HUGE (maybe 1 1/4-1 1/2" diameter. Only writing on motor is: S233, and open/ close by air jet on carb.--no name, carb no's, plug no's,etc. Think he got it at a yard sale. Haven't had a chance to look at sites Jeff gave me yet. Will be home and on familar Dell and keyboard later this week and will look them up.

I have no idea of any supplier for these parts, but I have seen them on Ebay. You might check there. Maybe someone else will stop by and give you some useful info. Keep checking in.

I found a listing in Champion's spark plug book for Maytag.

It says:

Washing Machines, 1/2"-14" pipe heads, plug #25, gap .025".

14mm heads, plug #RJ12C, gap .025"

Barring any of those being right, call up Champion and ask. They may have been original equipment for it back in the day.

As for parts, call Maytag. They will refer you to some antique parts dealers. I'd gamble someone's got stuff lying around for this old beast.

There's a Maytag club on the Internet that caters to old things like this, look it up in Google.com
