I thought  my last note would include the original message but it didn't so I'll try again. Contact Terry if you want to have a spot on the tour he is setting up, he has a few spots left.

Jim...

Our Crosley Club member Terry Robinson asked if I would post this even though it is not Crosley related and I agreed. It is an opportunity for all car lovers. So here is his spiel on the tour he is setting up for next year.

GM Heritage Center--Sterling Hts, MI is a private, appointment only museum ran by GM of lots of their special cars. Here is a link to the museum. Here is a Video of the museum.

You must have a group of at least 30 people --at $10/ each or  $309 -- to get in. It's not open to the public, per say. We get a personal tour of 1 1/2 hours and free time for that. I have reserved Tuesday, April 17th at 11am  

 
 

If you, or anyone you know would like to take advantage of this rare opportunity, have them send me a check for $10 with name and phone # and email address, and we'll all meet outside the facility at 10:40 am on April 17th. I was told  I can pay her for all with one check. Am letting the Crosley and Kaiser clubs know first.

GM Heritage Center - Address to meet at for the tour

6400 Center

Sterling Hts. MI 48312

 

We are away from home so don't set check till after Nov 1st.

No thank you gary, I'm not a Crosley man, I found this engine and want to find it a good home. However, I've been in touch with a chap David in New York, and he's looking to put together a COBRA motor, so I'll give you his email, and he might be interested in that as well!

Here is his email

I have a complete COBRA motor that turns over and seems to have decent compression. Would you like it? It doesn’t have a flywheel or water pump or generator.

Hi,  

That block and crankcase is from what is called a tin block.  It was made by oven brazing sheetmetal around steel cylinder sleeves.

It was the original way the Crosley motor was produced.  It worked well when it was used for military items such as hydraulic pumps and generators but Crosley had trouble with the blocks when used in cars.  One problem was that due to the brazing process used for assembly of the block parts there was electrolysis which could lead to pin hole leaks through the cylinder walls.  Another problems in auto use were the braze joints leaking.  This could have been from a less stringent assembly technique then when they were produced for military use or the greater vibration of road use.

Eventually Crosley had to use cast iron blocks because of problems with the tin blocks.

I would be interested if its still available.

Hello Crosley enthusiasts!

I joined this group to ask if there would be any interest in an engine block I found in the attic of my garage when I moved into my house. It's missing many parts, crank and cam, but the block is there, and I though somebody would have some use of it. Is there anybody interested, or know of somebody I can contact who may be? It's located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
