Thank you! I appreciate the advice.

That is a standard shaft coupler in industrial applications.  They are reliable and readily available at any industrial supply house,  Also they can compensate for a lot of misalignment.  As an engineer, I see no reason not to use it.  As an old car guy, it obviously not original equipment.  Paint over the orange logos and maybe cover it up with a coupler shield that I have seen some of the Crosley guys install on their cars.  Then who would know except you unless they get under the car and look up.

Hello everyone,  I've pulled the water pump and generator on my '52 (with Homelite engine) and instead of the connectors that I've usually seen, it has a large coupling that keys together with a hard plastic piece to (I guess) cushion the metal. Has anyone else used this? I'm not sure if I should reuse this or use the new standard connector that I purchased from one of our vendors. I'm going to post this on the Face Book site as well. Thank you for any observations/advice-Jim Hudson

Re: Pepco Supercharger Orientation on Engine

@jeff        Hi Jeff,  I have a Pepco  here at the shop, for a Crosley.  If you rotate the blower clockwise,  it should be obvious if air is exiting from the manifold, or the carburetor.  If it's coming from the carb,  the manifolds can be swapped to correct that. Everything else remains the same.
 
Call me if you still have questions

Its buried inthe garage... make take awhile. Complete blower, extra case.  Had home made manifold... I tossed it.  Had a Weber downdraft carb on it and mickey mouse pulleys.

Dan, I guess it depends on the condition,  and what kind of parts come with the supercharger (intake manifold,  intake port, exhaust port, pulleys)
Anywhere from hundreds of dollars to thousands.

Oops!  Silly me.  I watched an animated video illustrating the operation of this type supercharger,  and it operates by compressing the gas mixture against the walls of the supercharger.  I thought it compressed the gas mixture in the inside of the lobes.
So based on the video, the Pepco supercharger will work properly with the clockwise rotation of the engine. 
I will let you know how it works out.

Never mind my question below.  I watched an animated video and discovered that the lobes compress the gas mixture against the walls of the supercharger.  So my supercharger should work fine with clockwise engine rotation.

I have never seen a VC only parts manual, it is included with the standard parts manual. Unfortunately it does not have diagrams of VC specific parts.

Re: Wiper Motor Control Fix

The flip side of rain X is you need to be going a reasonable speed to get the rain to blow off the glass.  Faster speeds in a Crosley on wet roads & 6 inch brakes makes me a little woosey....I used to get caught in the rain in our Model T & even with rain X, a lot of water beads would just set on the glass.

I remember the first time I used rain X on one of our Studebakers....I thought it was a true miracle!

This may be old news to some of you, but thought I would share.  The last time I got caught in the rain I could not get the drivers side wiper to work.  The control knob was very loosey goosey (it was always loose, but not this much).  I pulled the motor to find that someone had worked on the motor in the past and had the little stud all chewed up.  They were trying to use a screw on type pal nut to hold the control bellcrank on (original is a push on pall nut).  This allowed the bellcrank to become unhooked from the motor  switch.  

I used a cut off wheel on the dremel to cut off the old stud.  Then center punched and drilled for a #6-32 thread (#39 drill).  The thickness of the motor cover is 3/8" but not knowing what was inside, I drilled a little less than that.  I then cut the threads and cut off a 6-32 screw to create a stud.  A little loctite and a nut (I just left the double nuts in place from where I installed the stud, but a single nut & loctite would be just as good) and we are good to go.  Don't make the stud too long or it could make installation on the drivers side a little tricky (not much room between gauge cluster and opening for the motor). 

So, if your switch on your wiper motors are floppy, you might have the same issue.  There is a belleville washer under the bellcrank to provide some tension & keep it from rattling.

Re: Where does oil pressure attach to block?

 

Butch,
I'm sorry. I didn't explain that very well. Obviously your correct. However, the port at the front of the engine on the passenger side
that you describe as the canister filter feed port has been blocked with a plug from inside the crankcase. I cleaned out the port &
discovered that the threads where the line would attach seem to be stripped a bit. I surmise that rather than read thread this port,
they simply attached the filter feed line to a splitter & paired it with the oil pressure line. When I initially bought the car, I took off the 
rocker cover & as the engine was running, I could see good oil flow to the top of the engine. However, since the oil pressure gauge
didn't work, I wanted to attach my oil pressure test gauge to the engine to check the precise pressure. That's when I discovered this
work around. At this point, I guess my question would be: Since I seem to be getting good oil pressure, maybe I just let "sleeping
dogs lie" & get on to the non-functioning brake system? However, I still may try to feed this line away from the exhaust manifold. Any thoughts? 
Thanx, Skip D
