Strange Engine Water Pump

Jim Bollman
 

Saw a posting for an engine for sale at a Mecum Auction
https://www.mecum.com/lots/FR0119-349509/crosley-1948-crosley-motor/

When I looked at it they claim it is a 1948 but the serial number and block styles indicates it is probably a 1950 engine. What is strange is the water pump, anyone seen one this style? What was the application?

Other thing I noticed is it doesn't appear to have a bolt to hold on the front pulley.

More pictures at auction link.


Re: my first crosley any advise welcome

You might try turning it over (not with the starter but turn the flywheel and do NOT try to turn with the bolt on the crank pulley)


Re: my first crosley any advise welcome

Tim Hamblen
 

Appears to be complete....that would worry me. It may not have any internals (pistons , rods, cam, etc etc.) And if it was made up from various parts it may not have matching main bearing caps or matching bell housing halves.If you put up a few pictures that might tell us something.


my first crosley any advise welcome

Edited

I have just purchased my first crosley car https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1044346  it claims " The engine does not run as it was assembled for display only and will need to be rebuilt but appears to be complete"
now I always think engines are stripped for a reason and I was wondering if anyone could advise on the car if anyone knows it (its from pittsburgh) or any common faults with the engine plus the spares situation
thanks all

1946 CC coupe

Welcome to the world of Crosley !  I would start by pulling the spark plugs and spraying a good amount of penetrating oil in the cylinders. Let it sit for a couple days. Put the plugs back. Also if ANY fuel sits that long, Drain it. Flush with a bit of new fuel. Non-ethynol is best. Put a gallon in the tank. Pull the air cleaner and spray a good bit of carb and choke cleaner into the carb. Be sure you have a charger on the battery and start cranking. I would use my hand to choke it. This way you can control the air flow into the carb. You may have a selonoid switch with a "button" under it. If so, this is your hand switch to the starter, much easier than reaching in to start with your right hand, and trying to reach the carb with your left.  Keep us informed as to how you make out. Put some pictures on also. As vice president of the club, I would encourage you to join the Crosley Automobile Club. Take a look at our official website for details. We are here for you !

Hi 

New to Crosley. Is there info on how to 
awaken a Crosley 1946 CC cast iron engine. Was restored 10 years ago
and ran and drove and then was stored inside. 
Prevoius owner states they put aviation fuel in tank so it should be just fine. 
Thanks in advance for help. Dave

Re: Crosley "tractor"

That is just beautiful! I saw a little tractor with a Crosley engine sitting in a front yard in my old neighborhood years ago. But, sadly, I was never able to locate it again. 

Learned my lesson, I hope… If you see something interesting - Stop. Talk to the owner. Leave a note. Write down the address.

Happy Hunting!

Some time in the '60s, my Dad built this from the remains of one of his Crosleys.   We called it "the tractor", and used it to haul materials, tow boat trailers, and drive around the woods near our summer place in the Pocono mountains.    The frame was shortened, and a 3-speed transmission from a Ford of some sort was fitted between the (very much shortened) Crosley driveshaft and the rear end.    The second transmission was almost always in 1st gear, although I eventually figured out how to shift it by reaching under the seat and working the two levers on the side; in 3rd-2nd gear, you could get going plenty fast on a dirt road.   It was as super reliable and I only remember it being down for repairs a few times over many years.   In the summer, we ran the "stock" 12 inch wheels on the front, but the larger wheels shown here made it driveable in snow.   We were probably using it to shuttle our bags from the car to the house via the 500' or so steep driveway when this picture was taken.

Good eye! He still has the Corvair, it's a Spyder, with turbo.  It's now its original yellow color.
