Group Survival Tips

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

A few tips I have learned to make Groups easier to take.

You can setup your membership to mail you the messages instead of reading them off the board. This can be individual messages or a daily digest of messages (No Ads)

You can answer or post messages by sending eMail to
Crosley_Gang@... (No Ads)

If you want to read the messages online, go to the message page and click on Expand Messages. This shows you multiple messages at the same time with minimal ads.

For Photo viewing - Go to the photo page and click on List on the left side. The default sort on the list mode seems to be in order of the last item loaded with the newest items at the bottom. You can look at the Last Modified date to see if anything has been added since you looked the last time.

The Chat window seems to take up more space with stuff we don't need than the old club chat room, so make your browser window as big as possible before starting the chat session. This should give you a better viewing area. On my computer if I resize after starting chat it has to restart the chat software and I loose my connection to the chat server.

You can customize your chat session in the preference dialog, it is one of the icons at the bottom of the chat window above where you type messages. Set the auto-away to a large number like 70 minutes.

If any of you found other good tips please pass them on.

Crosmobile parts

"crosleys_ss" <crosleys@...>
 

I am desperately looking for a Crosmobile front emblem and 4
Crosmobile hubcaps to finish my Super Sport restoration. Can anyone
help me out? I also need a hood and new interior, or patterns to have
one made.

gas tanks

does anyone have an old tank from 47 -49 panel delivery or know the
measurements of the tank thanks charlie

Crosley for sale ...

X779@...
 

... with an original COBRA engine, which runs great, although the COBRAs
are a bit noisier than the CIBAs. I think if you keep lots of anti-rust
and water-pump lubricant in the cooling system, and make extra-positive
to never overheat it or freeze it, it should run indefinitely. But the
seller will include a CIBA engine and transmission, and extra parts.

It's an older body-off-restoration heated-garage-kept 1947 CC-47 sedan
with radio. Paint scheme is a two-tone green/brown. Chrome parts and
upholstery were all re-done. It's a turnkey car.

Seller Al Goll is asking $5K. The car is at
Strip-Rite, 103 200th Avenue (US 45), Union Grove WI 53182. (262)
878-5342. FAX: (262) 878-0400.

Mention my name if you like.

On the Photos page: it's true we only get 30MB for photos, but we could
always open another free discussion group for photos only and get
another free 30 MBs. And when that fills up, well ....

Lucas Automotive in California has nice 1½"-wide 12" portawalls for
about $35. (800) 952-4333.

Anyone have Neal Daglow's new email or phone number? Thanks!

Enjoy the weekend!

Re: New Crosley speed honor

"crosleyhotshot" <crosleyhotshot@...>
 

Well if anyone is interested I have some of the tape from Mr.
Davenport running at the flats. A friend of mine was there and took
the video for me. It is pretty neat to listen to it run and such.

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!

What does it WEIGH?

"mcriverbug" <mcriverbug@...>
 

I have dozens of Crosley articles, and some original literature,but
none of them tell the WEIGHT of a 47 pickup. They give the weight of
a conv.,sedan and sw. but not the pickup. I am sure someone will
know. Thanks - John

Photo Sizes - Keep them Small

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

Please keep the size of the photos you upload as small as possible. Most pictures will look fine when compressed to 50 kbytes or less when they are 640X480 or smaller. We are limited to 30 Megs of photo space and that will fill up fast if we don't watch the sizes. The other benefit of compressing the files a little more is faster downloads for those of us on dial up lines.

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

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
in the Crosley Garage. I only can get the little truck to move in
neutral no other gear. Sounds strange but when I put the truck in a
gear it stalls, in nuetral the truck will go foward, Any suggestions?
Again Good to be home. Ron Wright

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.
