Crosley engine

Jon Ciauri
 

I drove to so-cal last Friday to pickup a crosley engine that spent the last 30 years sitting on a friends garage floor. I received not only the engine but a box full of related parts .new water pump,tube exhaust header,aluminum oil pan,boxes of bearings,seals, etc. When I got home,I took the engine apart.The serial number stamped on the. Left side of the crankcase is131114c . I am still evaluating the condition of everything.

There is a guy on the model that site that hauls a lot of cars, goes by Freighter Jim, never used him but seems like it is always hauling for someone, may  be worth checking out.

Yes, I talked to that hauler Last week, Freighter Jim. His current route will swing through way south of me. 
He will let me know when and if he has a load aligned that will work for me.

David,
I’ve used Rich with Enclosed Auto Transporters to haul a couple of cars and have been happy with the price and service. I found him when I sold an old MG to a dealer in New York. That dealer uses his service too.
His number is 901-487-1832

Your photos of your mechanical linkage are helpful.   Do you have any photos of the linkage looking straight down?  Or underneath?
Thanks

Thanks Jim. I have a picture from Paula that gives me the layout. .........Jim.

PS. Here is my shop. I restore 356 Porsches, but the '47 PU will be my shop truck. The body is off and in the body/paint shop. The frame has been dry ice stripped, and painted.  .....................................................Jim                   libertymotorsports356.net

There are on bunch of pictures in the Photo Album section under Restoration Tips. Search for brakes if this link doesn’t work. Not sure if they will tell you both what you need to know.

If these pictures don’t help I will see what I can dig out of my photo files. The club has a display of brake systems at the Nationals every year and I have some pictures of those displays.

I assume when you said sliding clutch bar you mean sliding brake bar? I think during the vintage of the Gasporter they had a cable clutch in the cars.

Hello everyone.   I am now restoring a Gasporter and the mechanical brake and clutch cable linkages have been modified/changed over the years.   Anyone have a photo or drawing of the correct original setup?  I am not sure how the sliding clutch bar is supposed to work.

Re: Gasporter Linkage

jeff
 

Thanks for all the responses.  I found my Gasporter in Big Bear Lake airport in California about 15 years ago.   The mechanical brakes are standard 6 inch Crosley (with cast shoes, not the later steel shoes).
However, the clutch is actuated by a cable attached to an elaborate mix of linkages with an angle iron linkage which rolls on a small roll wheel.  Please note that when you step on the brake pedal it also depresses the clutch.  There is not a separate pedal for the clutch.  Each time you step on the brakes the clutch is depressed as well.
The Gasporter Crosley transmission was modified to only allow first or reverse to be engaged.   You could not shift into second or third gear in the Gasporter as the shift rail was rotated 180 degrees inside the transmission cover so the shift indent was not accessible by the shift lever. 
What does the standard Crosley mechanical linkage setup look like?
And how is the standard Crosley linkage modified for the Gasporter?
Anyone have a Gasporter with the correct original linkage?
Thanks again  
Jeff
