No dynometer.   I am just a backyard mechanic.   Just like to fiddle with cars.  Since I do not have a proper exhaust manifold (I have a stock Crosley exhaust), I would guess the horsepower at about 103 hp!  Just kidding.  Enjoy working on these cars.

Wow! Did you put it on a  dynamometer to find out the horsepower you've got?

I think they may be the same clips found in the new style trailer lights at Tractor Supply Company.

Anyone have a crapped out light that would be willing to sell me a clip?

If you have a Crosley you want to submit for possible future CotM send two photos showing unique features/angles and I will consider making it CotM.

Re: PTO control lever

L.E. Hardee
 

I think all FOR's had the holes punched from the factory whether or not they were equipped with the pto or hydraulics.  My first FOR was as bare bones as you can get.  It was used as a tow vehicle for stocking trolley carts in a government GSA warehouse near Chicago.  They had two of them that were auctioned as surplus after they were retired.  I bought it from a guy from the East side of Chicago in 1971 who was the Cord reproduction dealer.  The 4/5 size fiberglass car that used a Corvair transaxle turned around in the front with steering added.  The FOR never saw the light of day during its working life.  It did not have a passenger seat, spare tire (but did have the bracket), any rear body, tail lights, or factory hitch.  Certainly did not have hydraulics or pto.  Yet the floor beside the driver seat was punched for all the levers and respective bolt holes.  If you really want fake levers, I believe I read in a posting maybe a year ago that someone had fabricated spares for sale when they made ones for their own use.

Re: Interior sun visor

I think they were regular equipment for the drivers side and optional for the passenger side except the later CD Super models where they were standard for both sides.  You experts correct me if I am wrong.

Yes they had them but no not available. If you can locate a pair of them , even bad ones a good trim shop can redo them.

Re: Help With Parking Brake Lever

Here is how it bolts to my 52 CD. The short arm is bolted to the cross member about 6 inches to the driver side of the transmission. That short arm is perpendicular to the cross member.

I think I figured it out. There are a pair of holes in the transmission cross member on the passenger side. My mistake was trying to fit the lever on from below. When you lay the lever over the holes from the top, it bolts right up.

Not the handle inside the car, but the lever that mounts beneath the car, near the transmission. The lever has a short arm with two small nuts/bolts, and it clearly bolts to something. What does it bolt to? I can't find anything in the vicinity
