which crankcase/oil filtration should i use?

"crosleyhotrod" <truckfireman@...>
 

Hello friends again from California,

I have two engines to rebuild, one for use in my car, and the other
for a friend who is helping me work on the car and body, in exchange
for adding to his collection of various motors (his hobby).

I've already discussed the situation with him, and he doesn't care
which one he receives.

My question, is.....they are both Cast Iron Blocks, but I have an
early crank case with the wick seals and remote oil filter, and then
I have a new crankcase with neoprene seals and "new style" spin on
oil filter.

Both appear to be in perfect shape, oil relief plunger, etc, is free
and cleaned, etc. Which crank-case should I use and why? I've
heard some say the old "remote" filter will work better for oil
pressure, increased oil flow, etc. However I've heard the same about
the "new style". I've also heard the new style may plug, and Lose
ALL oil flow......

My question is: If you had to choose one or the other, in a car that
you plan to restore AND occasionally drive which crankcase (and oil
filter) would you choose if you had both options available to you?

Maybe by measuring the number of replies for one or another, I can
get a general consensus. Please reply with your input. Your
knowledge is appreciated. Thanks

Unless Jim Friday checks in and wants to share the early pre-registration, know one knows. If this is your first year and you are wondering how many Crosleys will be there. Plan on seeing between 80-100 Crosleys on the field counting show cars and flea market cars. Friday nights road rally has become an event in itself with 30-40 Crosleys out running the roads of North West Ohio. If you don't have a car for the Rally hang around the start an ask for a ride from someone with less than a full load.

Hope to see you there.

Jim...

Does anyone know how many Crosleys are pre-registered for the show?
SEE YA THERE! - John

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;

Hal,
Thanks for writing back. I'll be leaving
(NC)tomorrow for NY. I'll be in the city for a little
mini-vacation over he weekend, but will be heading out
to Long Island on Monday evening. I'm borrowing a
friend's digital camera so can take a couple of quick
photos and post them then.
I have found out that it is, in fact, a 1950 Hot

Talk with you later,

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.

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
been leaking around the fuel pump. I'm live in Borden, IN. Where are you

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
