Wiring sizes (AWG) for harness

Andy Drake
 

I'm in the process of cleaning up the hack job some previous owners did to the wiring harness in my '47 roundside. I'm hoping to keep things looking relatively original without biting the bullet and getting a new harness until I repaint the truck next year. Does anyone happen to know the AWG sizes for the wiring going to the generator? Looking at another car with a better harness, one wire looks like a #10 and another is slight smaller, maybe a #12. I don't see anything smaller than #14 in the rest of the harness. 

Thanks!

Broken Crosley Hood Badges

wpaxt@...
 


As I am sure you Crosley experts know, the hood badges often break off like this one from the 1947 round side that I recently bought.  I know that there are aftermarket options and also very pricey intact originals but I'd like to see if I can repair mine.  Does anyone happen to have the piece that breaks off, maybe with the clear jewel still in it?  If so let me know.  I tend to be pretty handy with fixing things of this nature and would love to take a stab at trying.  Thanks very much everyone. 

Re: 1947 Crosley Steering Shaft Thread Size? Update

Jim,

You were correct, it is 5/8 18. I just fixed the threads with a rethreading nut and now my nut goes on.  Many thanks.

Will I fit?

Can someone give me a measurement from the bottom of the steering wheel to the seat back on a Hot Shot? 

I fit comfortably in my Bugeye Sprite, later Midgets with thicker seats...not so much.

I'm trying to make sure my "robust" frame will fit in the Hot Shot.  I know P.Crosley was tall. Tall ain't the issue. It's round that I'm concerned with. 

Re: Will I fit?

Jim Bollman
 

I don't own a VC anymore so I can't make the measurement, but I can tell you there is room to shorten the steering shaft if you get close. A Super Sports I use to have had maybe 4-6" cut out of the shaft. I didn't know it when I bought it and didn't notice till I drove a stock VC.

Steve – I just measured my Hot Shot and got about 15” between the bottom of the steering wheel and the seat back at the closest point, when the seat back is not compressed. If you were sitting in the seat the springs in the seat back would compress at least an inch, which should give you about 16”. These measurements assume that you have the seat in the furthest back location, which is right for me at 6’ tall.

Hope this helps.

Steve,  I'm a fattie,  5' 9" and just over 250. I am very comfortable. I took my Hot Shot to a friend's shop one day when just tooling around, he's at least 6' 2 and will go 300. a couple of us picked on him until he crawled in. first out of his mouth was "there's more room down here than in my Model A!!" threw him the key, he said no thanks as he rubbed his knuckles on the concrete. he got in and out pretty easily.   Paul in Dayton Oh

This car was titled as a 1951 Crosley by the BMV. The previous owner said that it didnt come with a title. He wired it for signals, horn, tail lights to make it street legal. The engine was replaced with a 18 hp briggs stratton, chain driven to a sprocket on the input shaft. It has a 3 speed GW transmission. The drive line does not have u joints and runs through another tube fixed to the differential pinion shaft flange. He also cut about 6 inches off the hump back to allow the boat seats to go back so he could sit in it. The wheel base is approx. 80". I am serious about restoring this little buggy but need help iding it. All opinions are welcome. Thanks again Bill

I never heard of microcars before I found this one. I am thinking I need to find out what the suspension is to start with. All thoughts are welcome. Bill

Tillotson DY9 parts

Does anybody know where I can get a "idle tube" for my DY9 Tillotson carb?  The one I have now is damaged (which explains my pick-up running poorly).
Thanks

Pre War or Post War   Are there any thoughts? There are no body stampings visible. From what I have read the early Crosleys didn't have u joints. This one doesn't either. I want to restore it but I need an identity of this vehicle. Any thoughts? Thank you, Bill in Ohio

Pre War or Post War?? One of a kind? Prototype?

It is titled as a 1951 Crosley. serial number tag added by BMV a few years ago. No univeral joints on drive shaft. One brake band on drive shaft for brakes, none at wheels. I am a new collector and want to restore it, but I have nothing to go by. Maybe the drive train can help identify this car. I have spent months trying to find one that looks near.  Please look. Someone here would know. Thanks Bill
