Re: Identify parts

Hi Steve, 
The door catch would not have been used on a Super Sports. But would be relevant for a CC or CD

That’s great..
I don’t see a cut-out on a Super Sports for the door stop?
I assume I’ll need a couple of the correct size pins(like the one in the photo) to attach the clutch linkage?
In the other photo I have the throttle linkage and some sort of latch?
Can someone tell me if the throttle linkage is correct and what does it take to get over to the Carter WO Carb?
Thanks again..

The double yoked item is for the clutch linkage. The spacer looks like a tube shock insert, but it's hard to tell without some size reference.

Hi Steve the curves piece and round rubber bumper look like a door check strap. The small triangular piece is a spring return for the throttle linkage , and the other looks a brake or clutch linkage

When I got this car it was disassembled. I figured out quite a few parts and their installed locations. I have a few parts here (Photo) that I don’t know about. Maybe you guys have an idea..

Re: Fageol Crank Case

Seb,

Yes, the rear seal bore can be modified to use the automotive rear seal.

Email me, and we'll discuss it.

     The "engine number" you gave is the casting number.   Your engine number will be found on the crankcase by the distributor.   The engine you show is a later one, not original to the car, however, depending on the number may be a replacement.  The dash looks familiar, but I can't put my finger on it.  If you want to sell it, it is saleable.  Post a picture of the radio and we will see if we can help on it.

My engine number is: R209900. Some other things I found were that the car seems to have been blue originally. Also, someone cut holes in the back and added 2 tail lights. I also found an extra dash in the car that seems to belong to a different model and an old radio that has vacuum tubes but doesn't look like the correct one fore the car. I have added pics for anyone interested.

Looks like your engine was built around August/September 1949. Has some improvements over ones that are converted CoBra block engines.

Just thought of something, since it is Thursday. A few of us get together in a club chat room for realtime discussions every Thursday and Sunday nights at 10pm EST. The discussions often get off on other topics but we are always happy to answer questions and give advice, between solving the words problems and weather discussions :-).

Just pick a name and leave the password blank.

R209900 is the casting number and probably 99% of all Crosley cast iron blocks have that number even though there were numerous changes over the years of production. The engine serial number is to the rear of the distributor on the side of the crankcase, that will let us roughly date the engine.

Here is a link to the radios used in the Crosley http://crosleyautoclub.com/Car_Radios/Radios.html If your radio is one of these it is worth hanging on to, they bring big dollars for a nice one and more than you would thin for a poor one. 

Sounds like you have caught the bug. Welcome to the club. I bought the bug when I was 13, nearly 60 years ago.

Raymond, correct, that dashboard is NOT for any Crosley. A photo of the radio would help identify it.

Raymond,

That is the CASTING number, on the cast iron block, the engine number is stamped on the aluminum portion (the crankcase).

Re: Crankshaft install

Great idea with the minor rebuilds for peace of mind keeps clearances in check!  This is my first Crosley engine I have had apart.  A little different than what I am used to but all of the principles the same!

I keep a small bottle of white nail polish in my workshop (has a built-in brush).  Each time I assemble/reassemble an engine, I find TDC and mark it on the crank pully (after first removing the old mark).  I do a minor rebuild after each season of racing (main and rod bearings replaced), so barring some disaster, my engines get torn down at least once a year.  It has been a few years since I blew an engine, so I have managed to avoid disasters by learning what breaks in race-prepared engines—fingers crossed.

I didn't have a mark on the crankshaft pulley like Dave showed in his picture.  So I got number one cylinder to TDC and timing mark on flywheel visible in the timing mark window on the bell housing.  I then lined up the camshaft gear two dots with the one dot on the camshaft drive gear for my valve timing.  For static ignition timing I positioned the distributor for the ignition points just about to open (points opening fires ignition coil) and rotor pointing towards #1 cylinder distributor cap tower.  So preliminary static timing will be at 0 degrees when engine starts.  From there I can set the timing with a timing light.
