Radio.

Rick Geithmann
 

Happy New Year everyone.

I am taking a longshot here but does anyone have an in dash radio for the post war Crosley?

I am not picky on its condition as long as it has the dial face with the chrome bezel. Motorola is preferred but the Zenith would be ok.

Thanks to all.

You should be good if you just joined. Any one that joins after October 1st get the following year plus the last Quarterly for the current year. Duane usually throws a few back issues in to the welcoming package up to the postage limit for the mailing. The Winter 2020 Quarterly is a bit behind but when it comes the mailing label will show your renewal status.

The CRC cleans and lubricates. Regular WD40 will gum things up after awhile, not recommended for electrical or anything with small gears or such. They also sell WD-40 Specialist Electrical Contact Cleaner, I have never used that so it may be equivalent to CRC.

I have heard that CRC lectra  clean is a good cleaner for old gunked up electrical parts. Use that to clean, then hit with something like wd40 to lubricate it to make it function correctly. I have also been told NOT to use a Emory board to clean the contacts, because it can mess them up. You can get lectra clean on amazon.

No disrespect taken. I agree replacement makes the most economic sense. However, my interest is in bringing back the usefulness of something old and original and learning a little in the process.

Clip and washer size for a 1950dc window regular with 1 piece glass

 

Hello, does anyone know what size the clip and thin washer are for the window regulator with a one piece window? I replace the glass with Plexiglass and both clips went flying and cant find them. I drilled 3 holes in the metal strip at the bottome of the glass thru the plex to the other side. I taped in 3- 10/24  screws to hod it in place. works great!. I have broken 3 of those 1 piece windows now so I decided go plastic.
Thanks

Subject: Re: [Crosley-Gang] Sticky Brake Light Switch

I'd like to refurbish this brake light switch. May I please have recommendations on what I should use to clean it up? Other than cleaning, is there anything else I should consider. Springs appear strong. That extra wire you see in the photo was used to hold the housing to the mount since once of the little clamps is missing.

Note, this is not the brake light switch from my car and it's "Sticky Brake Light Switch" problem.  I'm finally getting back to my own car's problem with the advice previously given. However, I am hoping to complete this little project in case I need to do this on my car's switch. If I'm successful here, my son will use this on his car.
