Re: Still waiting

The picture attached to the dealer offering of a car attracted my attention via the front bumper over riders and grille guard.  I've got a 51 wagon with something quite similar and thought it was a marriage.  I'm thinking now possibly an aftermarket or dealer option for Crosley.  Anyone else encounter something like this?

I have a set or two of over-riders like that that I have removed from a couple Crosley,s over the past few years, but have not given much thought about their origin. Interestingly they were both cc’s . It’s a great question you bring up. Perhaps just a mail order or dealer add on?

This is my '48 wagon, I am almost finished with the restoration. I found the grill guard a couple years ago in the dirt. Had it rechromed for this car. I have only seen a few of them on Crosleys over the years.

Adjusting bolts on 6&1/2 inch clutch , clutch slips, could this be the problem ?

Tim Hamblen
 

I took the Aerojet out of my 48 and put it in my 49. I did nothing to the clutch other than a new throwout bearing. Now in the 49 the clutch slips badly, never done that before . A look see shows the adjusting bolts on the pressure plate tight up against the throwout bearing. A comparison of the old and new bearing the best I can with the new in the car) and it appears that maybe the new bearing is a tad thicker than the  than the old bearing. Could it be so simple as just running the finger adjusting bolts in some ? In other words it seems the bolts are not allowing the pressure plate to fully engage.

Re: Still waiting 3 bar front over rider kit

That 3 bar set is exactly  what I got on my 51 CD,  Until seeing the the first 2 bar post, I just thought it was a junk yard add on.  Thanks for all the responses!

Re: Adjusting bolts on 6&1/2 inch clutch , clutch slips, could this be the problem ?

Rather than messing with the finger bolts, why not just adjust the clutch linkage until you have about 1" of free clutch pedal movement before the throwout bearing engages the pressure plate.  I only adjust the finger bolts to get all three to engage evenly.

I would think messing with the finger adjusting bolts could mess up even engagement as L.E. mentioned and also the proper pressure plate tension applied to the clutch disc.

Re: NooB from Ohio

I know you all are VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE on how to restore a Crosley with your own hands.  BUT... To those of us who have to hire almost all, $12000 is a bargain!  My convertible is a good case:
But 2 or not at all:. $10000
Pay owner for delivery $500 (it was on his way to buy a model T)
Parts for both:. $975 ($190 for CD)
Sold CD delivery: $6500
Mechanic:  $1900 (for convertible)
Body (for convertible) $$1275
Convertible approximate total:. $14960
$12000 is sounding like a bargain to me!!

I was wondering if you could be on the wrong side of the clutch forks or the pull back springs for the throw out bearing ?

Jane, You are right on target. The bigger issue with the car at hand, is the fact that many parts of it are incorrect for the year and it is being put out there as original. Still a nice Crosley though.

I did that once myself.  You should be able to check that the release bearing is correctly position in its notch in the pivot forks from underneath if the flywheel cover is removed.
