Re: Engine Reinstall

Jim Bollman
 

Hope Dale's idea works. Was going to suggest what Butch said if you had the transmission out or off it’s mount.

Yes, yes & no.
Dale at Service Motors recommends to loosen transmission mount bolts to give a little wiggle room.
Thanx, SkipD

Are you sure that the rear spring shackles haven't shifted/turned over, changing the position of the differential?

After getting back a beautifully rebuilt engine for our 1952 Super Wagon from Dale at Service, we are attempting to reinstall it. After a bit of fiddling & cussing we got the transmission shaft splines all lined up & slipped in the engine. Unfortunately, the front motor mounts are misaligned with the engine attachment holes by 1". The engine is sitting forward of the mounts by 1". We have tried pushing the engine back against the drivetrain to line them up to no avail. There doesn't seem to be any play to move everything rearward. Any advice?

Are the two half of the bell housing tight together?

Is the transmission on its mount?
Did you have it out after you pulled the engine?

Re: Authorized Crosley Dealer List Updated

Jim Bollman
 

Darn, I had a note from you telling me that before and I remembered fixing it, but I apparently made it NC instead of SC then forgot to move it to the NC page. I fixed it. It might take some refreshing of your browser cache for it to show up. Thanks for telling me again.

Good work, but there is one correction.  Auto Specialty Company, in Greenville NC is listed in the South Carolina listings instead of North Carolina.  That one was owned by my uncle.  He said he got a shipment of 6 Crosleys after WWII.  They were probably early CC's.  Anyway he said that he sold those six cars over and over as the owners kept bringing them back.  He was always very soft hearted, a good mechanic and engine man but not much of a business man.

Re: What year do I have?

Kenn Cahill
 

Probably a late 1950 or an early 1951.


Thanks Dale

Kudos to Dale at Service Motors. I recently Purchased a spark plug wire set from him. Because I have a WICO Magneto, the #3 wire was too short. He made a longer plug wire and shipped it at no cost.

Thanks Dale. More business to come.

 

 


Re: What year do I have?

I have a completely refurbished 6" mechanical brake setup. New everything, shoes matched to the drums.
I am installing a set of 9" hydraulics on my PU truck. Could you, or anyone else be interested in this setup ?                               ...........................Jim Liberty

I picked up a complete chassis today & wondering what year it is.  It has 9" hydraulic brakes and tube shocks.  The serial number on the motor is 118386.  Does this mean it's a 1951 (if it's the original motor)?  I also got 2 front axles, one with 9" brakes and one with mechanical brakes.  Not sure what I'll do with it but may be interested in trading the hydraulic brake parts for some useable mechanical brake cables.

Hi Jim, feel free to add my phone number to my contact info on the Carolinas Region section: 919-801-2132.

Also planning on having a Dinner Cruise on the Blue Ridge Parkway to The Bluffs restaurant on the night of Friday, June 9, with the show and organizational meeting Saturday, June 10th. More info will definitely be forthcoming. I'm going to call Kay at Millers to see if it's okay for folks to contact her to make reservations.

Thanks again!
Don
