Re: Crosley Carter Carburetor

My bushing kit arrived and I installed the bushings in the throttle body today.  I have to say I was very pleased with the installation.  There is no looseness in the shaft now. I'll assemble the carburetor tomorrow and install it onto the car and hope the problem is solved. 


Re: Anyone tried the 4.80-12 Radials?

Joe Brownsberger <jbraunsberg@...>
 

I will eventually need tires myself. Getting original oem is impossible both Armstrong and Goodyear have told me they do not make the tires anymore. Goodyear destroyed their mold several years ago. I have found on coker tires two different brands of 125x12. Would those tire fit? If I'm doing my math correct that would make it a 4.9x12 tire.

Strange, I just noticed not only do they make a 145-12 Radial tire they make a radial tire with the bias ply size rating at 4.80-12.  

Has anyone tried these?  I prefer the LOOK of bias plys over common radials.  Do these 4.80R-12 radials LOOK like the 4.80 bias plys?  Same size ?  and how is the handling? 

Anyone have pics of them on their car?  I would love to see how they look.

Thanks!

Re: Correct Replacement Oil Filter

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

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.

Re: Crosley Carter Carburetor

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.

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.

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

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,

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.

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