The switch tab looks something like this.

Another good thought Gabe, Jeff told me the car at rest would rev all the way up with no problem.  It also seemed to go to top end in first gear, however under load of second and third would not speed up.

Selling parts at Hershey Oct. 9-13

I will be taking some Crosley parts to Hershey Oct. 9-13 and was wondering if anyone needs something that I might have!  I have a bunch of stuff, mostly mechanical stuff but I do have a few body items and such.  If you need something let me know and I will check to see if I have it and could bring it to Hershey.

Radio front and knobs

I have someone with availability of a 3D printer and is willing to make the radio false fronts and knobs if there is someone out there that has examples to use for patterns.  Please contact me off board.  Thank you

Re: Radio front and knobs

I have been playing with the idea of 3d printing knobs too. The material won't hold up over time. Unless he has a different material, it's only designed for modeling. My uncle and I have been looking into options for for accurate repops. We should combine efforts.

Re: Radio front and knobs

Spock Arnold
 

Kent,  again thank you for stepping up.  Just to be sure of what we want to borrow.  There were a bunch of "false " radio fronts manufactured a number of years back to fill the space in the dash and look like a radio for those that did not want to spend the money on a complete radio.  It is one of these fronts we would like to get our hands on for a pattern.  I have a complete radio (sans knobs)  .  If it is possible to recreate a front this way, we may try this.

Steering wheel

Joe Brownsberger
 

How do I remove the steering wheel? I've read both my books, it's possible I over looked a section but I am at a loss. I just can't get it off the steering column 

Re: Steering wheel

Spock Arnold
 

1. Lubricate thread area and let soak 24 hours.  
2. Screw axle puller on
3 . Get a friend to pull up on steering wheel while you strike axle puller.
4 wheel will come off. If not repeat step 1 and wait more time.

Re: No high end power

I ran a Restoration shop for 20 years and still do it on the side.  Restoration 101- NEVER make assumptions.  Just because this is a "new restoration" a red flag went up immediately with your comment "and it is a new exhaust...I THINK".  You need to check it.  

Dealing with aftermarket parts I have had DOZENS of odd failures and issues from NEW parts that took weeks to track down.  All due to poor manufacturing quality.  One of the internal baffles in the exhaust may have slipped into the incorrect position or was welded in improperly.   Also...I have seen on several occasions restored vintage cars that have been stored over winters that have the exhaust filled debris by hibernating rodents.  Even nice buildings have mice....

But it is your car and do with this info as you please, but discounting it without finding the cause is not a good idea. Keep the info in back of your mind and when you run out of other ideas check into it.  It could very possibly be the cause.  That is a CLASSIC plugged exhaust symptoms you have.  

Good Luck

Re: No high end power

Thanks again Todd, please don't think anyone was doubting your expertise.  Thank you for contributing it.  Jeff has done a number of Crosley restorations and this problem has got him baffled. As such no ideas will be discounted. LBtw, Jeff confirmed it was a new Dave Edwards exhaust that had been installed just before the engine. Certainly, Rechecking for exhaust blockage is something to be considered .   But I have a question, wouldn't blocked exhaust have also expressed itself in acceleration of the engine at rest?

Re: 1950 crosley super accesories

Hey Gang,

The wiring is shot in my 50 super wagon with a melt at the dimmer switch and the insulation brittle and falling off everywhere. I'm going to redo-reroute the harness adding a fuse box, an updated ignition key switch, and some relays.

I am considering electrical accessories that were available in 1950. A backup light sounds nice. If someone has a backup light, can you tell me how is it switched on?
