New Crosley speed honor

X779@...
 

Well, I checked the Microcars list, and all of you in the CAC probably
know this already through the publication, but Crosley has now beaten
out the '80s and '90s former champion Honda 600 for the title of World
Speed Champion, J/Pro Class (cars with 750cc engines).

The winner and new champion is a 1946 Crosley sedan owned by Gerald
Davenport, which set the record with 92.337 mph. I understand the judges
had to verify the results by disassembling the engine and mikeing the
cylinders to check displacement, which verified the victory.

Congratulations to Gerald, and to all in the Crosley community! Saluté
a'tutti!

Regards....
Lou

Thanks for setting the group up, Jim. I like YahooGroups in that we can
opt for 'daily digest' and get all the daily postings in one e-mailing.

Wanted -
Does anyone have a set of 12" chrome wheel rings to sell? X779@...

I understand Crosley has picked up another racing honor. This was on
yesterday's Microcars list, and I'll look it up and get back to everyone
with that information.

Ciao, allora ...

scrappage

"papajaks" <Papajaks@...>
 

hi gang,I too, solved the secret puzzle unlocking the entrance to
this site.
thanks jim phor spreading the good news of scrapping the scrappage
bill. they just spared us risking life, limb, and prized possessions
in a revolution to retain the right to own, drive, and enjoy our
pieces of Americabilia. 'UNITED WE STAND'!


I think I am finally here/am I not

"crosley52" <crosley52@...>
 

Looks like I am here and a new member as well, took me a while but
maybe the whole thing is just a bad dream and we will all wake up
soon. It is a shame that the YAHOOS at YAHOO seem to have lost the
whole damn club but I hear they may have had their hands full with
Government and Local officials in busting the big child porno ring
that was operating on YAHOO. Well I hope they have an excuse any way
but as I have seen in the past with all servers they will not
explaine,or even tell us of any problem at all.


Re: Home Again (Transmission Problems)

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

Ron, from your description it sounds like another case of bad or worn shifting forks and shifter ball (end of shifter stick). This can get you in a mode where you can only get neutral or 2 gears at onced or 1 gear or multiple gears. The popets are probably missing or in the bottom of your trany at this point because once the shifter goes to far they pop out into the area that the shifting rods move in. Sometimes they push the pressed in plugs on the trany top out and you loose both on the ground.

I would take the top off the transmission and see what you find. With the top off you can move the gears around and see if anything else is wrong.

Best fix if the top needs rebuilding is to buy one of the new tops Dave Edwards sells. You can rebuild the top but you will have as much in the rebuild as you can buy one of his new ones.

Now down to basics I have a tranny problem that is or isn't answered

Scrappage Bill

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

I posted info on a scrappage bill a few months ago. I just saw this good news on another site.

Jim...

---------------------------------------------------------------

SCRAPPAGE IS DEFEATED ON U.S. SENATE FLOOR !

Attention SEMA Action Network:

Thank you all for your hard work in opposing, and now defeating, the old
car scrappage provision in the Energy Policy Act of 2002 (Section 822 of S.
517).

In case you haven't heard the news, Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell's(R-CO)
amendment to eliminate scrappage from the legislation was astonishingly enough passed by unanimous consent. In the end, even the principal sponsor of the scrappage provision, Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM), was
not willing to oppose the Campbell amendment!

This is fantastic work, work that would not have been possible without the
literally thousands of phone calls, faxes, emails and letters to U.S. Senators that SEMA Action Network vehicle clubs and individual enthusiasts were able to muster. Hobbyist efforts were cited by Senator Campbell and Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) as a compelling force in defeating this
scrappage provision.

SEMA sincerely thanks everyone for their dedication, hard work, and willingness to protect the vehicle hobby today and to preserve for it for our children. This is an amazing victory and a testament to the
powerful connection between the specialty aftermarket automotive industry and the
American vehicle hobbyist community.

Job well done.

Re: Photo Policy

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

Hal,

I don't see you as a member of the new Crosley Group. I know you were a member of the old club but it is still stuck in YaHell, going into its 3 week and no sign that it will ever come out.

I have for now, left the posting of messages wide open on the new group, an option we didn't have on the old club, but you have to join to post pictures. If I just missed your membership on the list I'll have to look into what your problem is. At least 2 members have posted pictures so far.

As long as we don't get spam or inappropriate messages I'll leave it open so non members can post. We may get more ads for Crosley parts. If we get flooded with messages that don't belong I'll shut off the non member posting.

Jim...

clutch

"hoosiercrosley" <BSmedleyt@...>
 

Thanks to everybody on the help with my squealing clutch. I put in a
new piolt bushing, works great now! But now I have a sick starter. I
think this Crosley loves the attention!

Thanks again, Bo.


Moving Forward

Welcome Back

"tmkldwwj" <tmkldwwj@...>
 

I too want to thank Jim for the effort to put this back together. I
know it took tremendous patience and effort .. Thank you . Also I
wanted to tell everybody that I got the engine for Norman running
last week for the first time. I know that that might seem like a
tiny thing to most of you, but to an inexperienced person like me, it
was the thrill of a lifetime. Hearing that little engine come to
life was like hearing the first cry from a baby. I was like a kid on
Chrismas morning for a week. I'm now getting a hurry to get done. I
want to DRIVE!!!!!!
