Not a bad idea with the gas can-tank!

My main concern was the coolant leaks my guess it is those side covers.  Are they an easy re-seal or do you have to remove all the intake and xhaust manifolds to get at the one.

If your primary goal is to drive around the fairgrounds, you may want to mount a temporary tank under the hood that hold a half gallon of gas and just keep an eye on the level. If you mount higher than the carb you can even eliminate the fuel pump if it is bad.

Hi Guys, I picked up my first Crosley last summer after nationals.  It is a `48 wagon, ran 10 years ago but was parked in a garage and has been sitting.  I am sure it is going to need gas tank restored, carb, fuel lines, tires the usual gone thru. Not sure I am going to have the time to do it and have it running before Nationals which was my goal. 

Does anybody know of a member or collector in the Toledo/Wauseon area that does work on the side and could maybe help me out?

Springs toward the transmission. It's actually hard to install it the wrong way.

Re: Hot Shot pops out of gear

Thanks for the replies, I will take a look at those areas, especially the spring loaded poppets, and let you know what I find.


Prewar Crosley wheel

James Dlapa
 

Hi all, just finished sand blasting the wheels for my prewar, and found one that has significant pitting on the inside and around the valve stem. 
Might some one out there have a pre-war wheel they would be willing to sell?  These are about a half inch narrower than their postwar counterparts. 
Thank you in advance for your help...


Re: Hot Shot pops out of gear

Steve Perry
 

I had an old Honda Motorcycle that would do that.. Found the shift forks were worn allowing the gears to move around..
Not sure if a Crosley trans would react the same or not?

Hi,

The previous owner put in a remote shifter, not sure if it's this shifter or the transmission itself that is the problem.
The shifter does not seem to have any loads on it that would cause it to pull it out of gear.

Any experiences or solutions with these trannies popping out of gear?


Re: Hot Shot pops out of gear

Butch
 

Good info EXCEPT for: "Also cork plug at left rear of cover that held additional spring and detent ball [for 2-3 rail] probably fell out. Tap hole for 3/8ths-24. Blow out chips. Use set screw with lock nut to hold in spring and detent ball, both should be as close to 11/32nds dia. as possible with spring around 3/8ths long and pretty stout. Screw in set screw or bolt till snug then back off till 2-3 rail can move and lock with nut. Had 48 that needed this fix. Seb."

The original Crosley shifter, never had a ball and spring, under the "cork plug". That was there just to keep dirt out.

The only detents were the 1 spring and 2 poppets, located between the two shift rails.
