Re: clutch cable

Seems to me if it backfires through the carb., it's 180* out of time. It's only a two cyl. so that should tell you the timing.

Thank you. Perhaps you are the person I need to talk to. I can't get the two cylinder to start. I had to take the distributor out so I could remove the capacitor. The instructions in the manual says the points should open 5/8"
before TDC. Thats under the starter shaft. Could you describe how I can get the timing right. It hasn't run for 50 years and all I've been able to get out of it is to back fire up through the carb.
If you'd prefer to call my number is 814-207-9182. I'm really frustrated at this point.
Thank you.

Subject: Re: [Crosley-Gang] clutch cable
I put a new clutch cable on my 39 last year.  It came from one of the Crosley vendors (Service, Yankee, or Edwards).  I just can’t recall which one had it.  

You will be able to get one.

I'm very unsure of how to properly use this site but I'll give it a go.
I need a clutch cable for a 1939 Crosley plus the proper ends. Is there a new cable listed for an another 
make or use or is there a good used one available?
Thank you all for any help you can provide.
