Hello all, I am installing a under dash A/C unit in the Crosley  18 wheeler. It is TOO hot in the cab here in Florida to drive it this time of year. Even with the vents and windows open, the temperature is about 100+ inside  when it is 90 outside, even with 2 layers of heat resistant silver floor mat.  I have insulated the the side panels, floor, firewall and floor. It helped a bit but the little Chevy engine and the 2" exhaust pipes put out a lot of heat.  I am going back to Philly next week so the install will begin when I get back to Florida in mid June. Here is a link to see the 7 mock up photos on my web site.

In case Dale has went off to get busy, not sure why the original message was not more obvious in his message but if you follow the thread back online you will see his original message https://groups.io/g/Crosley-Gang/message/34324 that gives pictures and all the info he posted early in May.

Re: Large distributor points , rotor , cap and condenser ...........who has them.

Robert Kirk
 

Most cars from this era have either Autolite or Prestolite dizzies.  The innards were and are rather universal.  If you still have the dizzy tag and know anyone at a corner parts store or NAPA who will look in a book rather the computer, the references are easy IF you have the dizzy model #. 

Re: Large distributor points , rotor , cap and condenser ...........who has them.

Tim Hamblen
 

Well, getting old has it's pitfalls. I actually had the receipt from buying the parts 12 years ago from Butch. Forgot I had replaced them back then. The large distributor once you take the cap off has a cover over the parts. Lift the cover off and there they are.Much bigger points and rotor. I wish all motors had this distributor, very nicely made.Mine are as in new condition but I doubt I have put 200 miles on them. LOL

Thanks Butch, just did not see them on their price sheet.

Tim,

We had all of the parts for the large distributor, Dale probably still does, also.

All I see on Service website is for the small distributor. The Aerojet in my 48 has the large one.It's ran like a top since I bought it 12 years ago but I'm gonna need the parts sometime.

Re: Forged steel crankshaft vs cast

BARRY SEEL <CROSLEY19@AOL.COM>
 

 Forged steel cranks are heated steel billets that are stamped into shape, thus compressing the molecules, and making a much stronger piece of metal. The nodular iron cranks are still cast iron cranks, but much better than the early cast iron. Forged steel cranks were used in the military engines, and some of the last Crosley auto engines. If you pick up a Crosley forged crank by the snout, and lightly tap one of the counter weights with a small hammer it will ring like a church bell. The nodular crank will make a thud sound.

Re: Large distributor points , rotor , cap and condenser ...........who has them.

Tim Hamblen
 

You'll see both large and small on them. Both will work but the large one has better advance mechanism.To be honest mine may have an electronic ignition because when I take the cap off I do not see points etc.Runs so good I did not want to fool with it. I'd sure like to see a picture of the inside of one.

Re: Transmission weeping gear oil after cleaning

BARRY SEEL <CROSLEY19@AOL.COM>
 

that hole is to replace the shifter detent, and sring. It should have a cork in it. RTV will suffice.I have always used the Model A 600W gear oil in the Crosley trans. It shifts nicer, and doesn't tend to leak as bad. You can buy it online from any of the Model A parts vendors.
