Re: Where Does Oil Where Block Bolts on Come From?


On mine it was the casting seam behind the generator bracket.  I guess I tightened the fitting too tight and cracked it.  Tried to weld it and was a no go.

"Oil in ledge under engine side plates (10 bolts each side)"

I have not seen a Crosley yet without oil pooled in the ledge beneath the side plates (ones covering cylinders on both sides) of CIBA engine. I have tightened the oil pressure connection to the block on both of my Crosleys - still leaking. What is the source? Please advise. Thank you.
