Re: 1950 Hotshot Goodyear Hawley Disc Brakes

Thanks guys, I have everything coming from service Mtrs. Pretty straight forward. I still need all the emergency brake parts from the rear bell crank back. O good pictures, so I can fabricate them.

The brakes work great 99 out of 100 times - Service Motors can supply the good stuff, I suggest also using a dual master cylinder though

You need to order the necessary parts and rebuild them.If you put them back together as is you are asking for trouble.New piston(actuator) stainless steel liner , everything.


Re: 1950 Hotshot Goodyear Hawley Disc Brakes

I have never rebuilt a disc brake system but Service Motors has all the parts including some improvements. I believe they also will completely rebuild your system if you don’t want to tackle them.

Hi guys, I have dismantled the disc brakes on my Hotshot. They were frozen with rust on the piston sleeve. The rubber "O" ring feels pliable. Are there any tricks I need to know in reassembly. I'll switch to DOT - 5 to eliminate water in the system.

I read bad things about this system, anyone with advice, will be much appreciated.  Has anyone switched to drums ???          ...................................Jim.

Jim, I agree with you.  If you allow jokes and cute kittens, not that there is anything wrong with them, then next someone will post something dealing with politics or religion.  Whole wars have been fought for less.  I vote to keep it somehow related to the Crosleys.  I can find the cute kittens somewhere else if I want them.

Hi Jim,

If it was me who sent it to our Crosley-Gang I apologize and don’t understand how that happened.  I had received it today and forwarded it to my wife and my dad.

Re: 39 Crosley

Likely a problem in the carb. First thing, check to be sure the idle tube is straight and the needle at the bottom is actually going up into the idle tube.Idle tubes get bent  because folks don't take the carb apart correctly. Could be dumping an unregulated amount of fuel into the intake. If that checks out , set top and bottom adjustments back to the "default" setting. Just search "carb adjustment" here and that will pop up.

Always need more parts, never know when you may need them.

I just spoke to Steve Demartino on this engine.   He has some history on the engine and was a former owner.  He states it is in EXCELLENT condition!!  I also hear that there are a few bidders already lined up for this item!!

I guess contact info for Bob would help.

He is not on the Crosley-Gang so send him an eMail and tell him when you want to pick it up.


For Sale: CC frame with Rear & Drive Shaft - Western NY - Cheap

Jim Bollman
 

Frame and rear end assembly (axle, driveshaft, springs and shocks), & 2 wheels. 6" brakes on rear. Fair condition. I could sell them for scrap, but I have a lot of respect for well-made old machinery. I am in the town of Marilla, NY - about 15 miles east of Buffalo NY; as the crow flies. A Christmas tree binder was welded to the back - in the interests of full disclosure.

Cheap, make an offer.

I'd like to see it go to a good home.
