Friends of Nick and Joan Brajevich,

Sad news to report, I just got a call from Bonnie, daughter of Nick
Brajevich, infroming me that Nick's wonderful wife Joan passed away on
the 4th. The service is going to be held on Saturday, the 8th, at
11:30
at Holy Cross Cemetary, Culver City, CA , 5835 W. Slauson. Joan was a
beautiful person, all who knew her will miss her greatly.

Re: Oil

"crosley19" <CROSLEY19@...>
 

I have seen too many times that someone else had previously worked on
the engine, and forgot the copper washers under the cylinder mounting
bolts. Also over time the gasket between the block, and crankcase
dries out, and starts to leak. Sometimes just tightening the cylinder
mounting bolts stops the leak, but not too often. I suggest washing
the engine with gunk or some other type of solvent, and pressure wash
it off. Then start the engine and watch for the oil to appear, won't
take long.

Oil

"speedoo51" <speedoo51@...>
 

There must be a gasket between the crankcase and the bellhousing as
the rear seal groove is in the bellhousing untill the crankcases that
have the provision for oil filter which also have an extended
crankcase area that has the seal groove; the bellhousing is machined
to clear and needs no gasket. . Gasket should be very thin [like Hot
Rod mag cover page] so as to keep things from warping...with todays
rtv-sealants I would leave the gasket out, thin coat is all thats
needed as long as the surfaces aren't warped already. Seb.

Hey Dug;
What happened to the Hotshot you had for sale?

to Long Island on Monday evening. I'm borrowing a
friend's digital camera so can take a couple of quick

I have found out that it is, in fact, a 1950 Hot

Re: oil

"BUTCH WILLIAMS" <service-motors@...>
 

Hello Art, On the Crosley engine, since there is NO separate cylinder head, the cylinder&head assembly is most commonly referred to as the BLOCK, and the aluminum center section where the crankshaft rides is usually referred to as the CRANKCASE or the CENTER SECTION. On a "normal" engine, where the crankshaft rides in the cylinder section, that assembly IS referred to as the BLOCK. Butch

Hi Barry, Art here. I also have a "HoosierCrosley" and mine was leaking
from the oil line to the gadge and at the fuel pump. Going down to the
little trough's at the base of the cylinders and running out the front of
the engine. I'm cornfused though?? Is'nt the block and the crankcase the
same thing?? Hope this helps and where is this Hoosier Crosley from??


Re: oil

Crosleydc@...
 

Try the bolts that attach block to crankcase.Are they tight?The gasket
between the block and case can fail too.Do you have too much blow-by? Oil can
come out of the breather and run down the side onto the crankcase if there is
too much crankcase pressure.

Re: oil

Hello Barry, If you think your getting oil leakage from the fuel pump area, it could either be the mounting gasket or inside the pump there is a rubber seal that fits around the diaphragm push rod and fits over a tubular section of the lower casting. This seals the crankcase section of the pump. We frequently find these to be bad. Butch

Thanks, Art I''ll take alook at that. I have noticed it looks like it has

I would say its the rear seal, if I have read your message right. The
older Ford FE engines, 352, 360, 390, 428, Did the same thing after
replacing the rear seal. The area around the seal gets worn and when
you put in a new seal it doesn't fit as well. Another thought is that,
if you have the old starter that you add oil too, you could be adding
too much oil. Ron

Is there supposed to be a gasket between the block and the
bellhousing?? When tearing last engine apart, noticed something in
this area, like a gasket. Thank youse guys!!! Larry

Re: Prices on Crosley stuff

"tmkldwwj" <tmkldwwj@...>
 

I agree with you Tony. What I think is happening is that you
have a new generation of Crosley collectors coming to the fore. We
are seeing the later stages of those of you that were around when
Crosleys were new. Those in the late sixties, seventies and on up
are starting to give way to those that are in the next generation
that have money to spend and leisure time to occupy. Some of those
people are occupying that time with Crosleys. What seems expensive
to those older folks seems like a bargain to the younger ones. In
the words of John Kennedy "a torch is being passed to the next
generation". I only hope those of us in the next generation are as
good a group of stewards of our cars as the last group has been.

showed up at the Kansas City micro car picnic. It is all Crosley
except for the body. The body is a Norge refrigerator. If you
look
in the photos, you will see it has a trailer. The trailer is a
Crosley deep freeze. The deep freeze even uses the original
latch
that the freezer had and it says Crosley on it. This car was
built
several years ago, but this is the first time I ever saw it. The
engine sounds really good. Great little car! To see the photos,
