I have some stuff that needs to be gone from my workshop: blocks and cranks.  The problem is that they are likely not worth the costs of shipping.  Six blocks, all rusty (surface rust), 3 flat tops, one turbolator, one turbolator with the crossflow modification started (4 input holes bored on distributor side, but no other work done), and one Vic Novell block (ported, bored .050, turbolator--Novell was a ¾ midget racer in NY).

 

The three cranks are forged steel, but need to be ground.

 

I’m in Escondido, CA.

 

Advice?  Interest?

Thanks everyone. Great help.


Re: Fageol 44 Boat Engine Rear Main Oil Seal

jeff <jeffalyon@...>
 

Seb, I took your advice and the Fageol 44 runs great!   No rear main seal leaks, perfect.  I drilled two holes at 45 degree angles for each half-ring, then tapped the holes for short 6-32 screws.   After installing the screws, and using thread locker, I ground the screw heads down a bit so they would not interfere with the crankshaft flange.  Put RTV around the edge of the rubber seal to prevent it from rotating.  Let cure for a couple days.  
The angled screws help keep the rubber seal locate in the middle of the seal housing.  Attached is a video after running the engine at different speeds for an hour.  Also attached is a photo of my home made seal retainer rings.

Thanks again Seb.

Jeff

Jeff I like #2. No worry bout bearing alignment. In my Fageol Crank cases the Crosley seal is a hair wider than the outter bore you made the rings to fit so if yours is the same should be pretty positive hold/squeeze on the seal. along with the RTV. Be sure all areas where the RTV will be in contact with are vey clean for good adhesion/sealing. Let me know/pics how it works. One point for down the road; when you bolt the back half of the bell housing to the front half be sure to check trans alignment, you may have to indicate in and re-dowel.. Seb..


Re: Distributor drive gear

Butch
 

Jim,

The gear or the distributor itself?
The gear is just a snug, slip fit, with a drive key splined into it. Once all of the retaining nut(s) are off, it SHOULD just pull off. If not, a pry bar, gently applied to the top/bottom side (depending upon your view of it) should get it moving. A shot of carb cleaner or WD40, could help.

For the distributor, after the gear is pulled, remove the single 1/4' bolt (7/13" head), holding the hold down clamp, and pull/twist, to remove it from the crankcase. There is an o-ring, around the distributor body, that can be real tight.

Re: HotShot emblem location measurements

The Super I did last year is as follows.  The center of the word runs parallel to the seam with the cowl 3 1/2" down from the seam.  The word starts (or ends depending on what side you are on) 2 3/4 from the front fender seam.  If I remember right, the Hotshot is about the same.  You are best to look inside the fender and try to find the existing holes even if they were filled in.

Re: Crosley military starter

Jon Ciauri
 

The Cushman engine made 8 hp. The Cushman truckster I bought was in hundreds of parts without an engine. I bought a Harbor freight 13 hp engine .because this engine turns the wrong way for the Cushman trans. I had to turn the engine around and point the power end forward. I mounted a comet clutch on the crank and connected the driven pulley on a jack shaft running along side the engine back to the original trans. Which was still in its stock location.the trans. Was driven by sprockets and
A chain . This system worked very well and I drove it for several months with no problems. So I am going to replace the engine and transWith the Crosley engine and trans.and drive the trans the same way. The only contact the engine and trans will be the pilot bearing on the rear of the bell housing,in a bolt on aluminum plate.The bell housing will be empty except for the flywheel with a bolt on sprocket to drive the sprocket on the jack shaft

Sounds like an interesting project. Is the Crosley motor more HP than the original Cushman? Hope you post a picture when you are done.

My engine appears to be a conglomeration of pieces . The flywheel was in the box but not attached .it had 3 bolt holes and the crank has 6 . It has the ring gear .This engine is going into a Cushman truckster to cruise the neighborhood so no need for 6 bolts .the starter mounting pad dictates which starter to use.4.5 inches vs.5.5 inches bolt holes center to center.

Hi Jon,

Does your generator have the ring gear on the flywheel? I have a Korean war era generator but it doesn’t have any ring gear. I’d like to put a starter on mine too but would have to pull the flywheel off to install a ring gear. Otherwise I’m sure it would be the standard larger size Crosley starter.
