Wire harness diagram

Someone the other day was struggling with the tiny image of the wire harness in the shop manual.  I blew one up & scanned it.  It will print onto an 11 x 17 sheet of paper if your printer can do it.  Hope it uploads ok.

Crosley 3/4 midget at auction

Michael Eliasohn <mikethebike2325@...>
 

autoweek.com on Monday, May 6, had an article about the upcoming JAB (Jeff Begg) estate auction June 15 in Springfield, Mich., near Battle Creek.  For sale will be his collection of old race cars, motorcycles, "speed parts" and vintage cars.  
Among the race cars for sale will be a Crosley three-quarter midget.  From the photos, it appears to be a major restoration project, but hopefully someone will be interested.
Either go to autoweek.com for the article and links or go to vanderbrinkauctions,com, then click on "auctions," then "view auction," then scroll down to the bottom to "auction photos."

The timing stinks for me....I'm having some surgery this week & probably won't be fit enough to go watch this sale.  It will probably be fun.

Jim, I don't remember whether this was my 2nd or 3rd crankshaft in that engine.  The first ended up in 3 pieces after a high rev.  Dumb high school kid trying to impress other kids.   Number two was a used standard crank that I had reground undersize in the original crankcase.  I put it together myself with the help of an older mechanic friend.  I was 16 at the time.  That one lasted about 6 months and just broke going down the road at 45 mph.  I figured that the crankcase was warped by the first crank failure.  Number 3 was from an old military generator that I bought for $15 because it had a busted block from freezing. It was the good steel crank.  I used the generator crankcase too.  It is still in the car today.

You were really humming along, by my calculation with stock tires, you were turning a bit over 6500 RPMs, since the stock engine is good for about 7500 (how long depends on the crank and how well it was put together) you were probably running out of power pushing a brick through the wind. That is why the VC models raced with the windshield off a lot of the time. In my dumber days, I took a broke in rebuild with a steel crank up to 7800 RPMs in second when the valves floated. Even then I didn't try it in high :-)

Good video.  It was a nice intro into Crosleys.  One very small point of contention though.  The Crosley would actually do the 70 mph on the speedometer.  Back in my crazy teen years, I had the needle bouncing off the the 70 peg in my stock 1952 Crosley wagon.  It even had the original 13 year old Goodyear Super Cushion tires.  I picked a straight country road with woods on both sides to eliminate cross winds and waited until there was no traffic. The motor was wound tight and the car was about to lift off.  I held it at 70 for about an half mile before I backed off the gas.  It felt like a plane bouncing on the runway just before it leaves the ground.  There is no way you could get me to repeat that run today though.

Please do post your test results. If these work this is a great find.

I live in the SF bay area, the reason i need a rim is that I purchased a set of the MQQN 12” trimrings out of japan and I need a test wheel to see if they fit. There’s no doubt that once i put one on one of my freshly painted wheel, it’s gonna leave some scratch marks on the inside lip of the wheel from the teeth on the inside of the trimring. so for the sake of me and the crosley community- i’m gonna find out if these nice quality-stainless steel trimrings work on the crosley wheel and post my answer. I had already ruled out a set from Mike’s hubcaps as too deep for the crosley wheel so short of locating a set of original crosley trimrings, these are my last resort. I see one of the members posted stating all I have to do is pay for shipping so i’m gonna message him and take him up on his offer. Thanks for the responses crosley gang!
