Re: Crofton bug running engine and trans for sale

 

I assume this has been sold. If so could you contact the buyer to see if they still want it and give them my contact info? If not I might want to make an offer depending on where it is located. I'm in Atlanta. Jim Murphy lftrn97@.... Thank you

I like it, lots of backyard engineering. It would be a big hit at an engine/tractor show or a Crosley gathering.

Old Homemade Crosley SnowMobile

Mike <seller432@...>
 

Just picked this up today a old homemade crosley snowmobile,guy said he got it from out behind a old barn were it sat maybe 20+ years.  Its crosley drive train and frame right up to the trans mount then it has a angle iron rear frame. Rear diff has sprockets with made chain drive track. Front ski's are old culvert pipe cut and flattened. I had to have it,just because it was neat and sported a crosley drivetrain.  I'm going to try and fix it up for a toy around the yard.

Tom,

Every Crosley Military Generator that I've had, had a Cast Iron engine, not a tin block. Your 53 unit will most certainly be a CIBA engine.

Every Air Force generator that I've seen, was not usable for household or standby use. As I recall, they are DC units, while the Army units are 60 cycle 120/240 AC units.

Hopefully this will help.

As per the ID plate it is a Dept. of the Air Force Model No.EG101ES, Serial # AKEG462, built by the Master Vibrator Co. of Dayton, OH. On 3/27/53. It is a 5KW generator.
I understood that all generators used the Tin Block motor, but would that still be true in 1953?
This motor is very complete with the magneto, Carter carb, etc., but has not been run in many years. It does have oil on the dipstick but is very milky. It is in a metal cabinet on skids and most gauges are there and the pan on this one has lines running through it from the radiator. Is that for cooling the oil or for warming it in cold weather??
I have pictures if anyone is interested in it.
I would also like any additional info on this or Crosley generators in general.
