I've been a bit reluctant to respond, due to time constraints, but
If you could get it here quickly, I'm pretty sure that we can get it
running and probably stopping, in time for the National meet at
We are about 3 or 4 hours away from Toledo.
I have a Nephew, that's just aching, for me to get another Crosley
into the shop, so he can work and learn more on them.
If you are brand new to Crosley, you might not know me, but most of
the old timers, know me fairly well.
If your interested, drop me an Email.

Not a bad idea with the gas can-tank!
My main concern was the coolant leaks my guess it is those
side covers.?? Are they an easy re-seal or do you have to
remove all the intake and xhaust manifolds to get at the one.

Since Jeff doesn't know how to use links, here is a
link to suppliers of parts, Service, Edwards and Yankee
are the big ones.
If your primary
goal is to drive around the fairgrounds, you may want
to mount a temporary tank under the hood that hold a
half gallon of gas and just keep an eye on the level.
If you mount higher than the carb you can even
eliminate the fuel pump if it is bad.

since I am have got ZERO response I guess
I am on my own with trying to get this
running by Nationals.?? I have been going
there for the past decade, usually in my
old `66 VW pick up truck and this would be
my first year in an actual Crosley if I
can get it running.
will try to go this route instead.?? I used
to run a resto shop so the work is not a
problem, just the time and knowledge on
what to concentrate on to get her going
for the show.
car ran and drove about a decade ago then
would plan on pulling the gas tank,
cleaning and reseal (are these usually
savable or should I replace??? If so from
where do I buy)??
fuel lines and probably rebuild the carb
if need be.
needs tires, I am guessing 4.50-12s what
you use trailer tires?
was holding water when I got it but after
sitting the past year I know see coolant
around the edge lip of crankcase and the
radiator empty.?? So I am guessing those
two side covers have lost seal and
leaked...someone-place sell the gaskets
sets for these?
I fool with the main seals on trans and
engine or leave as if for now???
main priority is just getting this up and
running driving to buzz around the
fairgrounds at Nationals....nothing more.??
I recall one year some guys helping fix up
someones car as a fund thing.?? How you
sign up for that...!?? LOL

Guys, I picked up my first Crosley
last summer after nationals.?? It is a
`48 wagon, ran 10 years ago but was
parked in a garage and has been
sitting.?? I am sure it is going to
need gas tank restored, carb, fuel
lines, tires the usual gone thru. Not
sure I am going to have the time to do
it and have it running before
Nationals which was my goal.??
Does anybody know of a member or
collector in the Toledo/Wauseon area
that does work on the side and could
maybe help me out???
