Can anyone answer me?

"crosleyhotrod" <truckfireman@...>
 

A few days ago, I posted a question wondering what crankcase and oil
filtration system I should use if I have a choice. I have both but
am only going to be able to keep one engine (giving the other one
away) The other person doesn't care which crankcase as he just
collects motors and displays them, but I will be using and driving
the car that mine goes into. If you had a choice would you use the
new crank case with the attached spin on filter (updated for the new
filter of course) or would you use the old "remote" oil filter?
Please, I am trying to guage my choice on the overall number of
replies for each one. Can anyone reply?

I would use the wick type. It is easier to prevent leaks if installed
properly.

Use 3M super weatherstrip adhesive black. The weather strip is glued on the
doors not the frames. Hope this helps.

I've used 3-M Black Weather Stripping Cement. The nice thing
I like about it over the "yellow snot" type is that if some
squeezes out from under the weatherstrip it doesn't show as bad.

all i have used is what is called yellow snot , it just weather strip glue any local auto parts store carried it

The weatherstrip goes around the doors NOT on the car body! Where is the
best place to get the weatherstrip material? Thanks , Sparky

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

Thanks Chuck; Again the Crosley experts bail me out. I may not be
able to claim this car as mine, I got more information from the club
than I ever knew possible. Thanks again to all!!!!

Iceball For Sale

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

Here is an Iceball in poor contition that could probably be restored
for display but would not be safe to use. The fellow wants shipping
costs and a little bit for his effort. Make him an offer if you want
one. Here is his note.

Jim...
------------------------------------------------------
Me again. I've brought the Icyball back to Oregon. It's from Arizona,
but it's been out in the weather a lot of years. It has bullet holes
in the bottom, a stress fracture in the bend of the tube, and a small
hole on the upper shoulder of the ridged sphere where it looks like
it's rusted out from the inside.

http://id.mind.net/~truwe/icyball1.JPG
http://id.mind.net/~truwe/icyball2.JPG
http://id.mind.net/~truwe/icyball3.JPG

It'll go for the best offer; I'm only interested in finding it a home.
I'd expect the new owner to pay shipping from Medford, Oregon 97501
(shipping weight about 30 lbs.), and it would be nice if I were at
least partly compensated for my efforts.

Re: Crosley rear axle

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

Anyone going to the Nationals this rear end is only about 35 miles East of Wauseon just across the Ohio line in MI. Better give him a call if you are passing by and want a free rear end it wouldn't be much of a detour.

Jim...

I have a yard trailer made from a Crosley rear axle. I live in
Temperance Mi. and the unit is free for the taking. Leave a message at
(313) 755-0689. I will scrap it soon if no one wants it .


Re: Homemade car built from Crosley?

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

Definitely built out of a Crosley. Looks like a complete drive train minus engine. Even the tranny is Crosley.

Re: Homemade car built from Crosley?

"chuckhk1941" <chuckhk@...>
 

From the photos--frame is crosley--as is the front & rear axles-trans
is also--I'd say 46-48 looking at the brakes--steering & pedals are
also crosley--hope this helps Chuck-- In

Hi -

In the 1950's my grandfather built a homemade car which I recently

thinks it started life as a Crosley (my dad thinks it was an

I have a bunch of pictures on my web page - if someone could tell

Re: For Sale - needs work

"deeyugee" <deeyugee@...>
 

Sorry for not posting in a while. The garage was so full of junk
that it took an entire day to clear out the garage enough to get some
pictures (you don't want to know about the rest of the house! ....but
I digress.)
It is still for sale and I will create a webpage shortly with some
pictures. The car looks like it does need a fair amount of work.
Thanks for your patience everyone.

I have found out that it is, in fact, a 1950 Hot
