Re: Oil Filler Tube

Butch
 

Look behind the front pulley, at the front crank seal area. Does the engine have a "one piece" seal but no retaining screws (located at about the "10 and 2 o'clock positions)?

I have had a lot of crankcases in that configuration. As I understand it, those were commercial crankcases (Thermoking, I believe) and the oil fill was on the oil pan. I had a lot of NOS oil pans, with the oil fill on the front, the oil filler cap, also had a short dipstick attached to it.

I was made, painfully aware of those details, when I was building an engine a few years ago. The engine was completed and I went to install the oil fill tube, that's when I discovered the absence of the boss for it.

Complete teardown and start over, very LONG night, but a happy customer in the end.

I would agree accept to say not all CoBra's had fillers, some did. All engines that started life as cast block engines did. What is the engine number on the side of the crankcase.�

More than likely, even though it is a "CIBA" the lower crankcase was reused from a COBRA. They did not have a filler tube.

I think you are reading the number on the block and not the one on the crankcase (the aluminum bottom end)

Re: Cardboard deflectors around radiator

I have not seen the boards for a CD but I built replacements for my VC from galvinized tin. They worked great.

They are very simple. You have a radiator support running across the front. The cardboards fill in the two gaps on either side of the radiator from the upper support down to the lower support. The one on the horn side has a hole cut in it for the horn bell to stick through. Look close and you will see the holes in the upper and lower support  for the clips that hold the boards. The lower 1" inch or so of the cardboards is bent at a 90 deg and the clips go down into the support while the upper ones go in horizontal. Give it a look and you will see . The one everyone misses is the one in the hood. Look close at the hood and  how the air flows and you will see how it is shaped.I go to the local supply that sells 1/8" foam core for sign boards.

Re: Cardboard deflectors around radiator

I have some spare heavy black plastic sheeting left over from a landscaping project (http://bamboogarden.com/barrier.htm) in my yard that I may use. It is flexible, very strong, and can be cut and drilled with woodworking tools and welded with a soldering iron and zip ties. I'm not sure what the measurements are right now, but the roll is 30" wide, plenty large enough since the radiator is not that tall. I have air deflectors made of this material on the forward crash guards of my kz1000 police bike for use during the winter to keep my legs warm and dry. When I have them done, I will document and share.

I agree with Jim.  There is 3500 in extra parts without the vehicles.   It is,easily worth double the price.

I wondered if that was the case, it kind of seemed like the listing was geared more for just the truck at 3500, 7500 might not be unreasonable if you wanted to mess with it, lot of work there though,  if someone buys the collection I might be interested in the vent window doors pictured....

With all the price changes, the fact that it was on a LasVegas CraigsList and the Crosleys are in PA starts to look suspicious.
