Are there going to be any Crosley parts venders at Macungie this weekend?  I need interior panels and a headliner for a CC Pick Up.

Michael,  You can also get those panels from Yankee Crosley Parts. He has a nice set of originals to trace and cut new ones.

Exhaust

Does it pay to enlarge exhaust from stock size to 1.5 inches straight thru will there be a noticeable increase in power?

I have 1&1/2 put on all mine and yes it helps a lot. By straight thru I assume you intend a muffler too ? I'd use at least a resonator, otherwise the sound is a bit rough.

Crosley Carter Carburetor

nobadrivers
 

Hi,
My 51 Crosley with the Carter WO carburetor has a wicked vacuum leak at the end of the throttle shaft in the base of the carburetor.  Can't keep the car running stalls at idle. Has anyone had any luck reaming the throttle shaft bores and installing brass bushings?  Is this common with these?  
Thanks, 
Glenn

Re: Crosley Carter Carburetor

Some may disagree with me, however I suggest changing the carb to a Tillotson. Once they are properly set, they keep working, trouble free.

A temporary fix might be to pack the gap with some thick old fashioned axle grease to seal the leak.  You would have to reapply every now and then when the gas fumes dissolve the grease.

I ordered a reamer and bushing kit on eBay.  I’m going to give that a try.  I used to use those kits many years ago.  However I do have a Tillotson carb on a 50 Crosley wagon that I might throw on the Hot Shot for now and try it while I’m waiting to fix the Carter.

Or was it really just 2 Crosley CIBA's?  Maybe not...  I really love this modified Cros, a marriage that was made to be.

Correct Replacement Oil Filter

nobadrivers
 

This oil filter adapter and filter are on my 1951 Super that I just purchased.  Can anyone tell me anything about it? Filter adapter kits I see from the current parts suppliers online appear to be different than this?  Are filters available for this type that I have?  I haven't taken it off yet and don't want to purchase just any filter worrying about it being equipped with a drain-back check valve that could block oil flow.  I would appreciate any input.

Re: Correct Replacement Oil Filter

L.E. Hardee
 

It looks like the original Fram CH11RP filter that came from Crosley on the later model cars, 51 and 52's?   The Fram filter isn't available anymore unfortunately.  That is why Service Motors and others have made adapter kits to use modern filters.

That oil filter has not been available for many many years.  Service motors has an updated adaptor you can get. Give them a call.
