Hi Gang,

I just acquired a 1950 Firetruck that has disc brakes all round, but
is missing one of the calipers. Is there a source for a caliper or
am I in for changing to drum brakes??

Motorola Radio -- missing a gear

"sunivroc" <sunivroc@...>
 

I'm looking for a gear that engages the tuning mechanism in a
Motorola/Crosley radio. (My radio works -- but I had to jerry-rig a
bushing to get the tuning knob to engage the tuning mechanism in the
radio -- and I'm pretty sure, given the bumpy ride that it won't
last.)

Does anyone have a broken Motorola radio that could be used as a gear-
transplant donor?

Thanks,

Rich Campbell

"Smedley, Barry" <BSmedleyt@...>
 

Rich I have a Motorola, (I think) that came out of an old willys jeep
wagon. It looks identical to a Crosley radio, but it doesn't say Crosley
on the nose. It is in rough shape but it looks like it is all there, but
the knobs. I gave $10.00 for it. If you think you could use it, you can
have it for that plus shipping. You can call me at 502-495-5340 day, or
812-967-3019 nite.

Towing a Crosley

"sunivroc" <sunivroc@...>
 

Now that my 48 wagon is up and running I'm looking forward to taking
it out -- but with a family of five I find myself doing the "caravan"
thing, and the Crosley has a tough time keeping up with my Toyota.
(Actually it is having a hard time keeping up with anything that can
go faster than 25-30 mph -- but I'm pretty sure it is an idle tube
problem that I'll have resolved before Spring.)

I've been thinking that a tow bar might be a good investment -- but
I've never used one. (I don't really have the space for a trailer.)
Does anyone out there have any experience towing their Crosley with
one? Are there any tricks to it -- or do you just hook up and go?

I found a 2-piece tow bar on a Metropolitan web site that would fit
easily in the car when it's not being used. It looks like it would
fit the bill for my car -- but I'm open to suggestions from someone
who has done this kind of thing.

Thanks,

Rich Campbell

Regarding towing:

I heard a tale at a meet about twenty years ago that a Crosley in tow
somehow jumped out of neutral into a gear, and that tore up its
drivetrain. Anyone know more about this?

Re: Regarding towing:

Phileofefe1@...
 

I have heard about Crosleys in tow jumping out of gear, but have never seen
it happen. Years back, when I was towing my Crosley station wagon from NY to
Wauseon, just to be on the safe side, I made a temporary holder using beam
clamps and threaded rod to insure it did not jump out of gear. It went from the
shift lever to the dash board.

It will also burn up bearings in transmission and the drive shaft center. I
would suggest to use a tow dolly and put crosley rear wheels on it. Tie the
steering wheel so it don't turn.

Re: Towing a Crosley

"BARRY SEEL" <CROSLEY19@...>
 

I have flat towed Crosleys for years. I towed one from South Carolina
to Pa. with a tow bar at very high speeds and never burned up
anything. I did have one with weak shift detents that the shifter
fell down toward third gear and ground third gear. I suggest tieing
the shifter in neutral. I have a freind that tows his Farm-O-Road]
all over the country with a tow bar, and he hasn't any problems. If
the front end is not aligned right they can get pretty squirelly at
high speeds.

If you have to tow with the rear on the ground,maybe some larger
diameter wheels/tires put on the rear will slow the drivetrain down
to a reasonable speed for towing. Also,make sure the oil level in
both boxes is up to level,with torque tube greased up before you
go.Wheel bearings too,if you haven't done them in a while...

Re: Towing a Crosley

"BARRY SEEL" <CROSLEY19@...>
 

When you drive the car you are putting side strain on the ring and
pinion, spyder gears, and side strain on the center torque tube
bearing. When you flat tow, the trans is in neutral, and there is no
strain on any of the gears, or bearings.

Hi: My experiences with a tow bar have been mixed. I used one years ago to
tow a Saab 96 about 20 miles and found when I arrived that I had almost
ripped the front bumper off that car! I have also had positive results with
using them but never with a Crosley. Steve

Re: Towing a Crosley

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

I have never tow barred a Crosley more than 10-20 miles so I can't say anything about proper oiling of bearings and wear and tear. I do recommend locking the transmission in neutral. I built a little clamp on metal bracket that keeps the shifter from going down out of neutral, out of a piece of flat iron bent to act as legs against the floor. Then strapped it down so it couldn't go up.

I have a homemade tow bar that has a heavy angle iron cross piece that I bolt on in place of the bumper and pull on the bumper brackets. Not sure I would do it that way for long pulls, I would probably make something that connected directly to the frame.

Since I have a trailer I usually use that for longer trips. A Crosley trailer can be pretty small and minimal but to get the weight capacity with out all the size and other things you would probably have to build it yourself or have it built to order.

Re: Towing a Crosley

Fitzsimmonspeter <no_haggle@...>
 

---I had a Pinto towed from Chicago to Colorado and
just into Colo.,the trans output shaft welded itself
to the input shaft due to lack of oil circulation. the
trans, relies on the spinning cluster gear, which isnt
spinning while towing, to lubricate the input and
output shafts. fortunately, the driver felt the drag
of the turning engine and removed the drive shaft. You
can't do that on a Crosley. I like the dolly plan but
if you must flat tow, I would suggest that you make
sure the gear oil level is on the money and that you
run the engine in neutral about every 50 miles to
lubricate the upper parts in the gearbox. That's my
two cents. Peter

On a Crosley the slider gears make contact with the oil, and the
slight friction of the gears on the shaft allow them to rotate just
enough to lubricate the top shaft rear bearing and input shaft
bushing. On a Pinto the top shaft and gears are completly above the
oil level.

Any Crosley will fit on a CHEAP 4x8 trailer--use 12 inch tires, not 8
inch.You won't have to worry about the 4 wheel bearings on the
Crosley-the Transmission-the u-joint-the rear-the center bearing-best
of all, if the tow car brakes down-you have a car to drive-you can
store the crosley on the trailer-that keeps it off the floor.I carry
a spare hub for the trailer just for my piece of mind.Tow Bar-Very
short trips--flat towing a Crosley at todays highway speeds-not a
good idea --try towing a car at 50-55 mph-you will get run over.Going
to Ohio Nats.I followed Barry S.at 70 to 85 most of the way looking
at Shawn's Crosley on the back end of his trailer -I wouldn't want to
flat tow it.-Thats my 2-cents
worth. ---

Mike, sorry you had such a bad reception. By and large Crosley people are
