What do you say Jeff do we need to rethink these awards. Maybe come up with a formula that includes bonus points for a 2 cylinder and penalties if not Crosley powered or trailered. Hard luck with a Crosley rates higher than hard luck with a tow vehicle or trailer.

Re: Gas tank needed

Tom Sodaro
 

I do not have an original, but I have two steel reproductions. I am not sure who made them or where they came from. I am having both of them treated and will be able to sell one of them (the other is for my 49"). They are heaver then the stainless ones, which is not a great thing. ​After then are treated I will want $200 for one. You would pay for shipping or pick up. Tom

Re: crank case with breather. Torque Specs.

Butch
 

Hello Joe,

The first question, an engine without the crankcase breather will most likely use more oil and leak, due to excessive crankcase pressure. Remember, Crosley engines are high RPM engines, with "marginal" sealing at the front of the crankshaft, on rope seal engines. IF your looking to rebuild your engine, this is NOT the crankcase that you want to waste time, money and energy on. It will come back and plague you constantly.

The second question, before you lay a wrench to your engine, buy the Service Manual and read it and look at "exploded" pictures. Then, get a highlighter and read it again. Then go thru it once more, carefully reading the detailed, engine assembly areas.

There is a few quirks about the Crosley engines that are CRITICAL and the torque specs don't cover them.

Not trying to be critical, but I've built and machined, a number of these engines over the last 25 years. Prior to that, I had built quite a few "normal" engines, but in  a few ways, the Crosley is NOT "normal".

Hi, Everyone.

I have questions that I have not been able to find the answers to. I have a 47' Crosley engine that does not have a crankcase breather tube. Is that a necessity to have, what possible issues might i come across if any at all and how does this crankcase work without a breather tube. Also on my mind, does anyone have knowledge of any torque specs for the Crosley's? I just dont want to go tearing stuff apart and not put it back together properly and that info would be much appreciated. if it helps I'm restoring a 49' wagon and I'm currently working on the motor. but i want to be prepared for when i get into other stuff that might involve torque specifications.

I just bought a brand new stainless tank with the sending unit from Service Motors at the show. It will be tough to find an original in great shape that someone will part with.

It was a great show this year record count on cars on the field around 135 for the week. We got home about an hour ago after 9.5 hour drive home. Kept running into almost stopped traffic on the interstate and then not see any reason for the slow down.

Next years show will be July 11-13 2019, never to early to start planning. It will be the 50th anniversary for the Crosley club and the 80 anniversary of the first production Crosley. Pre-War Crosleys will be the Spotlight Class.

I’d say it’s worth $500..
And, maybe they could meet 1/2 way?

So i found this for sale on craigslist for $800 says it's a 49  and says it runs good. Rear frame has been bobbed off. I'm just not  sure what it's value is?  Also it would be a 300mi round trip for me to get it and cost me $200 to get it.
