If you're talking about the wedges you put in to balance the brakes, yes. The floating across bar moves as needed to equalize the braking pull, so as things stretch you don’t have to continuously have to readjust the cable length..

You need to get the drums and shoes to a brake shop and have the drums turned and the shoes arc ground to match.

Yes, that is one of the best crankshafts to build a high performance Crosley engine with.

Re: 1951 VC Super

Steve Olinger
 

Hi Dennis,
        My 51 Supersport is pretty well org. I have attached photos of the door rubber at the back and bottom of my doors which I feel is original. Its the reg Crosley style weatherstrip as used on the sedans & sw. The rubber goes on the doors not the body. The is a flat rubber seal on the front but mine is very deteriorated.
