Glad to hear your going to keep the Hot Shot. I see by the members

Jim,
I've decided to keep it and enjoy it! You'll see me joining the club
soon, and ordering lots of back issues of the newsletter etc. I've
got a lot to learn!

Peter,

Great photo web page. Well your 52 is a very early 1950 Hot Shot. Yes those are disc brakes they came out on all Crosley models in mid 49 and were discontinued late in 50 after having corrosion problems in area that use salt on the road. It looks like a very complete unit to start a restoration. If you want to get in to a Crosley to restore this is a good model.

If you decide to sell instead of restore, I'm sure you will get some offers from this board. You can also place a free ad in our "Hot Sheet" that gets mailed to 1300+ club members 1/4ly by sending the ad to mailto:CAC@... please include a non Email method of getting hold of you for the 1/4ly. eBay is another good spot, Crosley stuff seems to bring good money.

Good luck

Jim...

Sorry for what appears inconsiderate on my part. The Ebay method of

Because of my schedule I was under a self imposed deadline. I solved
my problem by using Pongo hosting.

After posting this message I will be dumping the excessive photos.

Re: 1952 Hot Shot

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

Peter,

Pictures and serial number would be a good start. There are some hard to find parts that if they are missing will drive down the cost. What kind of brakes does it have. I have found that a lot of 51-52 Hot Shots have turned in to Super Sports or 49-50. That's why the serial number and brake question.

Jim...

My brother inherited a 1951 Crosley Hot Shot a few years back, and

Re: Voltage regulator ??and problems

"crosley19" <CROSLEY19@...>
 

clean the area around the generator terminals. One will be marked F,
and the other A. The voltage regulator will be marked on the post
where the wires fasten to. One is marked F(field), one A(armature),
and one B (battery). Connect the field terminal of the gen to the
fielf to the field terminal of the voltage regulator, connect the
armature terminal of the gen to the armature terminal of the voltage
regulator. Connect the battery terminal of the voltage regulator to
the constant hot terminal of the starter solenoid (the big terminal
that goes to the negative battery terminal) Now you must POLARIZE the
generator ( this is to tell the generator which terminal on the
battery is hooked to ground. To do this take a small piece of wire
and jump the battery, and armature terminals of the voltage regulator
for a split second!! If the generator and voltage regulator are good
it should charge. You may want to try and polarize the voltage
regulator you already have on the car, as this may start it working
again. Alot of times when the battery is removed from the car the
voltage regulator will forget it's polarity, and you will have to
polarize it again. Hope this helps you.

1952 Hot Shot

"petergar" <petergar@...>
 

My brother inherited a 1951 Crosley Hot Shot a few years back, and
had all the intensions in the world of restoring it. Now, after
partially dismantling it and doing some misc repair work he's
interested in selling. It's complete, it does run, and its not rusty
or damaged. But it needs everything.

Anyone have a clue as to it's value?

Voltage regulator ??and problems

"mcriverbug" <mcriverbug@...>
 

I have an early 47 with the voltage regulator mounted on the inner
passenger fender.It is about 2x3 inches,one set of points that spark
when I push them closed with the motor running.There is a wire
coming off the generator to the regulator then out of regulator to
the wiring harness. The engine has the small generator. Is this the
proper regulator,if so how can I troubleshoot the not charging
problem. Every car picture I see with the hood open seems to have the
regulator mounted on the firewall,my car does not and there are no
telltale holes in the firewall from ever having been mounted there.
Any suggestions where I can find wiring diagrams for the regulator
and charging system.All other wiring on the car works fine. Thanks -
John
