Re: New Crosley of the Month

Not sure if they used a special crank or not. The speculation I have heard is, since they ran the propeller through multi V belts off the back of the engine and it had to be very tight, it put a big load on the already fragile crank. AnĀ  no outboard bearing to carry the load might have made it all work.
