Re: Flywheel for Sprite clutch

seb fontana
 

I am wondering if anyone has found some stiffer springs for the Crosley 6" clutch? I think thats all thats really needed to make a little more positive; the one that was in the car I had when I was young memory says had stiffer springs, I beat the daylights out of that car and never had a clutch issue.. Is there is a marked difference in using the 6.5 clutch. I see that Moss has a 7" diaphragm Spriget clutch but don't know if it will fit in the Crosley bell..They have several 6&6.25 clutches at varying costs.  Seb.

Thanks Jim, I would have guessed earlier.  Nice to have facts.

There were probably running changes to the flywheel over the years but I don't know what they are other than the location of the mounting holes for the pressure plate. If you are redrilling for a completely different clutch assembly I don't think it makes much difference. 

6 1/2" Clutch switch over 
              CD-205500
              VC-20783

This switch would have been late in the 1950 production late August with 1951 production starting in Nov 1950.

While I have my lever shocks out, I'm thinking I might as well change the probably original, 71 year old oil. What type of oil goes in the lever shocks? Is it something to be sourced locally, or is it a hard to find, super expensive fluid?

My late 47 CC has lever action but they are adjustable double action Houdalies. Although the holes are in the frame I've never seen a pre 48 [even pre war]  that has the single action Delco. There are shops that rebuild them if needed...

Interesting, I met rebuilding but I believe mine are fine if they are intended to be single action. 1947 CC sedan lever action shocks. Are the rears single action too?


Re: front shock absorbers

Brett,

A year and model would help, but since you mentioned rebuilding them, I assume that you're talking about the lever (knee) action shocks.

Yes, they are single acting, yes, you can service them yourself.

Service is mainly changing the fluid in them and possibly replacing the seals.

Someone must have experience with shock absorber action. My front shocks seem single action. No dampening on the up stroke (spring compressed) but great dampening on the downstroke (Spring rebound). Is that correct?. They are disconnected so I can test them. If they need rebuilt, any suggestion of a place to get that done or parts to do it myself.

John – I have a strap on type period turn signal switch from the 1950’s era that I would sell you for a reasonable price if that’s what you’re looking for. If you have any interest in it I’ll dig it out and send you a couple pictures.

crosleygarage.com - new videos and photos of Crosley Art Car

 

Hello all, I just posted a few new videos and photos of the Crosley Art Car. It will no longer be called the Crosley 18 wheeler as I gave the trailer back to my 1/2 brother 2 months ago. The trailer is still here in florida but I think it is going back to New Jersey for safe keeping at some point.
