Re: Fageol 44 Boat Engine Rear Main Oil Seal

I don't know if this helps, but I just installed one on a steel crank. Put it in boiling water, then stretch it over the tear flange.    .....Jim.

Hello Crosley Folks

Anyone know the proper way to install the rear main oil seal on a Fageol boat engine?  There is no slot for the flexible rubber seal.  Do you make a split metal collar to hold in the rubber seal?  Anyone have any experience with this issue?
Thanks, Jeff

Re: Crosley military starter

Hi Jon,

Does your generator have the ring gear on the flywheel? I have a Korean war era generator but it doesn’t have any ring gear. I’d like to put a starter on mine too but would have to pull the flywheel off to install a ring gear. Otherwise I’m sure it would be the standard larger size Crosley starter.

Hi Jim, I know you have been around a awhile, but Harbor Radiator does a nice job. They are in Costa Mesa off Harbor. I typically don’t have them paint them, as the gloss is a bit too much, so do that myself. But should be closes to you.

One option is to have your original radiator re-cored. You really don’t notice  the difference unless you are a  radiator guru. The cost is not low though. $300 or more. The cooling Can be 150% or more improved.

Jim,

I have had 2 recored, and they work perfectly. (Not cheap - like Brett said.) One shop claimed the "soldering was bad at the top" and wanted nothing to do with it. I just went to another vendor, and it's been two years without a problem and a cool running '47 coupe.

Here are the final pictures. Please let me know if I should be putting these elsewhere. Basically, I included what I'd want if just starting out. BTW, my set up did not have an "unlocking wire assembly pin and top (a cotter pin)" as mentioned in the manual; just the hex with the set screw.

I owe a huge debt to Dave Edwards and his drawings, both the original in this thread and the one he provided me on the invoice for my replacement springs (included). Thank you Dave!!! I NEVER would have guessed otherwise how to hook the springs to the body. The tiny hole was invisible under dirt and grease and the square cut-out looks just like a...well...square cut-out.

In the picture of my final assembly I don't have the hood release cable attached, however you can see it waiting its turn in the background. That installation came over an hour or more later when I discovered I had to get a cross panel on first. By that time I was not thinking about pictures.

I think I got it right, or close enough. :-)
