Pistons and Connecting Rods

 

Old posts here reference a number of sources for performance pistons and rods but as far as I can tell,none are still operational. Anyone know of current manufacturers or fabricators who can supply Crosley parts?

Crosley door hinges / back seat

Mike Mayberry
 

I am in need of door hinges and a few back seats. I heard that crosley door hinges are actually model A hinges but I might be wrong. As far as back seats go, I own 8 Crosley's and still have yet to buy one with a back seat. If anyone has some extra seats let me know. I am located in California. Thank you Mikemayberry75@ gmail.com

Piston Identification

 

In an earlier post I asked about "Turbulator Pistons"  and learned that turbulator relates to the combustion chamber not the piston. But here is the part that caused the question. Can anybody Identify it?

Should say JAHNS on the inside.

Rear axle seals

Mike S
 

I noticed a challenge in the 48 station wagon I just purchased.  I parked the car in a machine shed that is on a 8 degree slope and came out the next day to find a dribble of axle lube coming down the wheel.  Does this mean the axle was too full, or are the axle seals bad.....or both???

Re: Piston Identification

 

is it a standard replacement for stock?

Re: Piston Identification

Butch
 

No, that is an aftermarket, high compression piston, as mentioned, probably made by Jahns.

The regular Crosley pistons, were all flat tops.

Probably both. Also check closely for cracks in the hub sleeve. Crosleys are too well known for that.

Sliding window hardware?

Mike S
 

None of the side windows on our 48 station wagon have knobs or handles to help open or close them.  What is supposed to be on them and do any of the vendors sell them?

Re: Sliding window hardware?

Spock Arnold
 

Yes they have a handle and I've also seen locks. I have a few spare handles that I'll bring to Wauseon

The Crosley pull handles and window locks are same as on the 1962 Rambler station wagon.

'62 Ramblers....they are more rare than those handles around here....

So, the handle is the result of the thickness of the glass, plus the thickness of the sealer (2 sided tape???) plus the thickness of the metal. To get all this to fit into the channel, (when closing the windows) do you make a mandrel the same thickness (out of wood or something) and drive it into the channel to "spread" it in that localized area?  The glass seems a little snug in the channels as it is (the channels had been replaced not too long ago).

Mission Orange contest jingle

Bob H.
 

I'm sure many or all of you are familiar with the Mission Orange contest in 1952 which featured a 51 SS as a prize. One could submit a line to complete their ad jingle and could win the car.

I have a copy of the ad, which has the first three lines of the jingle. I've searched high and low online to find out what the winning entry was. Any chance one of you knows?

Thanks!

Mike,  The handle will make it slightly thicker when pushing into the channel. It will make its mark and work though. I had to run the windows back and forth a million times by putting my hands on both sides of the glass, and also using some special silicone spray in the track.
