What are the details on the Saturday show? Probably going to be hard for me, since I work Sundays and it’s 4+ hours away. But keep us posted and who knows?

Re: 52 Wagon windows

L.E. Hardee
 

Hello Mac.  I was waiting for someone else to answer you since it has been 55 years since I last replaced a roll up Crosley window and my memory of the event isn't crystal clear.  I was 16 at the time and didn't have anyone to ask.  I would suggest that you look at the area where the window regulator interacts to see how they can come apart.  Most likely you have to unbolt the regulator to get some wiggle room.   You may have to roll up or down to get the regulator arms in the proper position.  Then once free of the window, either get it out of the door or drop it to the bottom of the door out of the way. Usually in a roll up window, one or both of the window channels unbolts so that the window has slack inside the door to get out of the channel.  Then with the window free of the channel and the regulator, all you have to do is solve the puzzle of how to get it out and free of the door.  Good luck.

Re: 52 Wagon windows

Mac, on my 51 wagon I think I took the glass and the regulator out in one piece, then I prayed the glass out of the pinch strip on the bottom of the glass, They are basically just pressed in friction fit, I did try to keep track of the measurement from each end so I knew where to re-seat the new glass.

Re: gaskets for BRAJE accessories

David
 

I recently sold my Hmod.  The car had done 54 race events without a failure of the rear cork seal.  All were done with a Braje sump without a gasket, except the first four events.  In the first four events I was running an engine prepared by Bob Graham, and it broke a valve—very spectacular cloud of smoke and steam.  I no longer use Crosley valves.

 

If I were to be concerned about the rear strip of cork breaking, I would substitute a thin strip of rubber (still with silicone sealer).

 

Since selling my Hmod, I have been racing a Saab powered ESR.  I just completed (mostly) a new Hmod which puts me back racing with Crosley power.  Other than a small strip of cork at the rear seal, the only cork gasket is under the cam cover.  Not to open another can of worms, but I don’t use gaskets under the side covers, either.

I beg to differ. If you run it without a pan gasket the rear main cork will split in two when you tighten it and then a big oil leak. Nick told me how to install the pan gasket and what to use on the front and rear corks.

Hello fellow club members. I'm a new member, having joined last February. I was able to purchase my '52 Station Wagon long distance from California (I'm in Eastern Long Island NY) with the kind assistance of Jeff Ackerman (who I presumptuously cold-called on the basis of being a fellow New Yorker) and Tim Foster in California. I was just looking for a Crosley station wagon because it was my late Father's favorite car and didn't know anything about the Big Block CIBA engines. Fortunately for me, the car I obtained came with an installed Homelite 55 and a spare rebuilt stock engine.  The previous owner, Mr. Mike Grimes, had converted the Homelite with the assistance of a friend. It was the subject of an article in the Tin Block Times which I don't have a copy of yet because my children missed my hints for a Christmas present. Mr. Grimes was very gracious in giving me copies of the photographs he took during the course of his work as well as detailed notes. The photos are in an Album on this site (Thank you Jim Bollman for setting it up!) and the notes are attached here as a pdf document. I'm posting these pictures not just to assist fellow Crosley owners. It is also to recognize the outstanding work of a man who demonstrates why we use the phrase "the machinist's art". I think you'll all agree that the laborious task of transforming the last incarnation of the Crosley engine from outboard to automobile use is an undertaking that when performed well (and in this case was accomplished in a sterling manner) is truly a work of art.
