Could very well be for a Crofton Bug. 
They have wider wheels. I don’t have mine near me to measure.

1951 Super Sports for sale in NY

parkhunter@...
 

NOT MY CAR - this was posted on the "Crosley - Fun Little Cars" page over on FaceBook. After messaging the poster, I'm helping her out by listing it her. I can't answer questions about the car, so please contact her.

1951 Super Sports. "Runs great. Owned by a member of the club (Taren T. Cummings) and he would love to see it go to a fellow Crosley enthusiast
In NY. Accepting offers at this time please. Purchased a year and half ago or so for over 12k. Looking for a decent offer thanks."

From talking with his daughter-in-law Heather, Taren is having significant health problems and needs to sell his cars. Contact her for info, more pictures, or to see the car. The Crosley is in Pawling, NY. Heather (845-489-7726) is helping to sell.

Taren has regularly driven the car to local shows. His family loves the car, but they need the money. He would really like to see it go to a Crosley enthusiast.

Hoping somebody can help them out. Wishing I had the money and time!

IL Regional Meet Video

Jim Bollman
 

A friend sent me this link to a YouTube video. The first half is an antique tool flea market which is how he ran across it, but starting around the 5 minute point is a walking tour of the IL Regional meet a couple of weeks ago. Most/all the members were off eating so not many people hanging around but shows the good turn out of vehicles.

I know the man who built the 47 "Crosmobile" sold by Mecum.  He restored 4 Crosleys.  I own two of them. He always told me, "Steve, I didn't chop the top."  My reply was, "Okay, you didn't chop the top, but someone else did and couldn't finish it. You added your own touches and finished the job."  He just got a very big smile and laughed. My Crosley J was one of his Crosleys.

That is an interesting project concept.  I believe if I was doing that much custom work, I would put in roll-up door windows.  The Crosmobile that started his idea process seems to me to be a customized CC sedan rather than a VC.  I like the door/quarter window style on it anyway.

I find that a good wife is often very willing to provide sufficient motivation to the hindquarters.

How do you learn to kick yourself in the butt to get started.  I am getting close.  It looks like a cool little rig.  Kent

I procrastinate for years if I was going to try and finish the project but never could get started. Enter Scott Yingst, he offered to finish the project at a fair rate plus parts and it was picked up and moved to his place Fall 2019. It made it to the top of Scott's project list this Summer. So here is the Tractor page showing the history and current state.

Re: 6-Bolt water pump rebuild

Andy Drake
 

Thanks everyone! I appreciate it. I was over thinking it...surely MAC or SnapOn would sell you an $89 single use tool to crimp on caps to water pumps, right?

I am using Lubriplate Water Pump grease -- that seem right? I used to use marine bearing grease, but switched based on a recommendation to use waterpump grease as it's formulated differently. This is not the grease for Model A's (water soluable grease), it's the grease meant for bushings or bearings exposed to water.

Looks like a neat machine, glad it is coming to fruition.

Andy,

We are hi tech here. We support the "snout" with a board (we actually had a semicircular jig) and used a small cold chisel to crimp it on, in about 3 to 5 places. Make sure that you crimp it into the groove on the pump.

Ok, at the risk of asking a dumb question, what would you use to put that nice crimp in the retaining cap? I'd imagine there originally was a press or a tool of some sort that put the crimp indents in the right spot, but I don't really have anything like it in the toolbox. I hesitate to use pliars or something which would burr up the cap or not seat it right.

Thanks!
