I thought I saw one of him showing how to downshift too. Maybe not though…

Here is a video our Vice President put together last year. It is good for up shifting, I tried to talk him into doing one on downshifting too but not sure he has mastered that. When I drive a Crosley a lot I get so I can go up and down with minimal grind upshifting new 100% and 90% of the time down but if I don’t drive it a lot I loose my ability pretty quick and it is more like 75% up and 50% down.

Two Cylinder Throttle Problems

Jim Bollman
 

Not sure why you couldn’t just reply to my message and have it post on Crosley-Gang. 

The PreWars used a DY-1A - smaller main jet than DY9 which was used on the PostWar Crosley’s. They look pretty much this same. Many PreWars have DY9s they are easier to find. Sounds like a different carburetor is needed. Are you planning on coming to the Crosley Nationals in 2 weeks? Should be some carbs available and some PreWars experts to get info from.

I am including Crosley-Gang in. My reply to maybe get some more people to give some ideas.

I got this engine running after 70 years in storage. The high rev occurred the first time it started and several times after that. I removed the carb again and flattened the bottom of the carb. Installed a new needle and seat for the float (which didn't work well) and started it again. Same thing. The number on the carb is DY DY 9.
Thank you for answering me. I tried to answer on line trying to get more ideas from more people but wasn't able to do it.

Re: Two Cylinder Throttle Problems

Jim Bollman
 

Since you didn't get any suggestions from pre-war owners, I'll give it a try just from just the carburetor side.

Did this just start happening or have you had the carb off and just putting things back together?

I don't know how it could really go wide open when you have only moved the throttle a little unless their is something loose in the linkage or the carburetor itself. Have you taken the air cleaner off and looked down in the carb while moving the throttle with your hand? I would do this first with the ignition off and if you don't see anything moving that shouldn't be try it while running to see if the vacuum or vibration of the engine causes something to move.

I changed the subject on your question since it was tacked on with Crosley of the Month, where it will be lost.

When you start a something new please start a new topic, there is a link at the bottom of each message to start a New Topic or you can just send a new eMail message to Crosley-Gang <Crosley-Gang@groups.io>.

Two Cylinder Throttle Problems

Can anyone suggest what to check. The two-cylinder engine in my !939 Crosley runs wide open when the throttle is opened ever so slightly.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thank you.

You can register on-site, but the cost is $10.00 higher. The last day to register for the Microcar 500 Tour is today, June 5th. Registrations for the Microcar 500 Tour should be sent to directly to Jeff Lane.
Once Pre-Registration is closed on June 12th, all of you who have pre-registered will be receiving your “Admission Ticket”. Please bring this with you to help speed your entry into the Museum grounds. If you forget your Ticket, we will have a list of names at the gate but this will slow down the process.

Entry to the Meet begins at 8:00 on Saturday,the show and the doors to the Museum open at 9:00 so you will have time to park your car and get situated.
 
Preview Event – For those who are coming to Bate’s Alley on Friday night for the Preview Event, the gates will open at 4:30 and close at 6:00. The event lasts until 8:00. There will be live music from 5:30 to 8:00. This should give you plenty of time to look at the cars, as well as, find a place to have dinner and a drink.

We will have signs on the route from the hotels that you can follow to Bate’s Alley. It is about 5 miles from the hotels to Bate’s Alley and should take you less than 15 minutes to get there. You can also use Google Maps on your phone if you get lost. "Bate’s Alley Kalamazoo, MI" is a destination that is listed on Google Maps.

Canopies-Sun Tents – We have talked to the Gilmore about letting people put up a canopy or other sun protective tents on the Meet grounds. They will allow these structures so all as they are weighted down and secured. If the wind is too strong, we may ask you to take them down so that they do not blow into other people’s cars.

Mask or No Masks – Masks will NOT be required if you are outside. If you are vaccinated Masks are not required in the buildings. If you are NOT VACCINATED, masks will be required in the buildings.

Kalamazoo Symphony Performance – We mentioned that there will be a concert performed by the Kalamazoo Symphony on the grounds of the Gilmore following our banquet. The performance is featuring Branford Marsalis, Award Winning Saxophonist. This concert is not part of the World Meet. There is a separate charge of $35.00/person if you want to attend. Tickets are available on site the night of the concert.

Buy/Sell/Trade – Remember to bring anything that you may want to sell or trade. Simply display the items by your car. We will also have a bulletin board near the Registration Tent if you wish to post your items. There will NOT be a separate area for vendors.

Volunteers – I will be contact all of you who have volunteered to help us with various activities during the show. This will include helping with giving car rides, helping at the Registration desk and Kid’s Korner and parking cars. If you would like to help out let me know. I’m not asking for a lot of your time, maybe an hour or so.

Can't wait to see you all there. If there are any questions, please call me at 224-628-1657 or e-mail me at jdgolomb@...

Re: Prewar Conv sedan fuel filler neck Grommet

Hi all, 
Well I got the fuel tank filler neck grommet for the 41 conv sedan. From the picture Jeff provided of his 1978-80 MGB fuel filler neck  I went ahead and ordered one. 

With a bit of modification ( mainly drum sanding the inner diameter a bit with a 2” drum sander it fits fairly well. Though there is a bit of a gap on the bottom, I think it will settle in fine. 

If someone is looking for one and does not have a better alternative this may be something to consider.

James,  

Here is a shot of the rubber around my 80 MGB filler neck.  It is 2 1/4” ID and 3 3/8” OD.  It has an angle to it.  Might be close to the angle on my 39 Coupe.

Hi Joe, Thank you but these look to be for postwar cars. The prewars with rear mounted tank have a 3” hole in the body, a 2” filler neck and a bit of an offset. 

Thank you for the thought though.

Looking at service motors web page on my laptop. Under " body & frame grommets" for me its down 3 rows on the right side of the web page, next to the frame body webbing. Like all things I'm finding though, it may just be cheaper to goto napa or your local hardware store. They have it listed for $19...

Or what application from another brand may work? 


I did not see any on the vendors web pages listed. They do have a bit of offset. 


Any help would be a huge help.

I’m not sure I can tell what hubcaps are on those top wagons. I have never found any factory notes on when the low caps first appeared but I think we can all agree the high dome look nicer. The factory may have thought they looked better too and used them in publicity shots.
