My engine is a Maytag model 31, my grandad and I have tried to start it today with no luck. It fires good and has good compression, any ideas on how to get it started or what could be going on. It also looks like everything is orignal even the maytag spark plug. I have always wanted a hit miss engine and I would really like to get it going. Also is there a place to put oil and if so what kind do I need to use.

The Maytag is 2 stroke and needs a fuel-oil mix at 16:1.

Thanks for the mix info. Any advice on how to get it running? It has good compression and fires, but it won"t start up.

you might be having problems if your using straight gas. You mentioned it had the original Maytag plug. Did you take it apart and clean it good with brake cleaner? Maybe try another plug?
