In an earlier post I asked about "Turbulator Pistons"  and learned that turbulator relates to the combustion chamber not the piston. But here is the part that caused the question. Can anybody Identify it?

Old posts here reference a number of sources for performance pistons and rods but as far as I can tell,none are still operational. Anyone know of current manufacturers or fabricators who can supply Crosley parts?

Re: Plug on the rear differential

Butch, is, of course, correct on raising the car up, ao the gas tank is out of your way. I have always used my 1/2 " drive socket drive to pull the plug. When removed, stick your finger inside and the gear oil level should be just a hair under the lower side of the hole.

Hello, I'm posting this question after searching the Crosley Service Manual and this forum without success. I'm trying to check the gear oil level in the differential on my 52 Wagon and find that the gas tank is so close to the differential that it's obscuring the plug. There's about an inch between the plug and the tank. Is there a special tool for this? (I can't fit my large Allen wrench . Do I cut down an existing tool? Am I supposed to drop the gas tank? Thank you for your help.
