I think the single cylinder may have a bent crank, it dances all over the place but it runs. The twin doesn't move, it's always been one of the best running engines I've had. Owned them both for about 12 years.
Does it mean they have a bent crank when they dance around? We have 2 of the single cylinder Maytags that we bought at an estate sale of an old tractor guy. They were already painted up and in his shop with dust on them. Didn't take much for me to get them running. I know nothing about them really though. One is harder to start than the other.
That was a really good auction (outside of Nashville, TN) too. We ended up buying a Cub, Super A, (2) Allis Chalmers G tractors, and 2 trailer loads of attachments & parts for the Farmall and A-C tractors. Amongst the stuff we bought I found a notebook binder of forum posts printed out from Yesterdays Tractor. Thought it was pretty neat.
