Headliners

"silkytwo_99" <crosley@...>
 

Chuck1941 said on chat one night that the material is called panel
board. They use it in auto upholstery shops for door backing and
headliner backing. To give Crosley more class we have to quit
calling it cardboard and call it panel board. Mike

Setting Up Your Club Accounts

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

I see a few people joining and then dropping out. I thought it may be caussed by the fact the default, when you join a club, is single eMails of all the messages that are posted. You can set this to daily digests or no eMail and just read online. If you need help send me a personel note and I will change it for you.

Has anyone come up with a source for the pressed paper used in the
head liners and side panels ? I was at Sherwin Williams Paints today
and found a patern that is a good match as far as the pattern goes,
the colors were Green and Beige but they can be painted with a latex
paint. It also comes in 27" and 54" which would be great for the
head
liners.Pattern was from [ Basic Textures ]pages 3,35 and 39.

Paul; The Panel board or "card board" you can get at a auto upholstery
shop but it will be a flat board, no pattern. I to bought some of that
wall paper but didn't fill comfortable doing it my self. I ask several
upholstery shops to do the wall paper on the panel board and was told
that it won't be a good idea. The reason is the wall paper is made for
a flat non flexable wall, not to bend around corner and flex. There
are different patterned panel board but the Crosley design, this is
goig with what I was told. Ron

PANNEL BOARD

"chuckhk1941" <chuckhk@...>
 

I'll try this again--pannel board for doors-heavy-non design-or
grained-black on both sides--board for interior pannels--thinner--
will bend--has a pattern or grain on it-black on one side-light on
the other-pattern is on the black side.These pannels are at trim
shops.

I really don't like the new system. I and others will probably hope
for a simple in and out. Still looking for a delivery 49-52. What
happened to all the messages that were cataloged?? greg

There is still hope that our old messages will be moved from Clubs to Groups. I have most of the pictures and will slowly put most back up (as I have time) if they don't get them moved. I saved most of the technical content from the old club board and indexed them for easier use. They are now on our main web site at http://www.ggw.org/~cac/CrosleyGarage

sunvisor on e-bay #1817482464 made by Comet

"mcriverbug" <mcriverbug@...>
 

Did Crosley make their own sunvisors,or were they an aftermarket like
this Comet sunvisor. It seems like it would block your already
limited vision area. Sources tell me the RESERVE on this is $400. John

What is it?

"hoosiercrosley" <BSmedleyt@...>
 

I just purchased a 51-52 cut down wagon. It has no roof or doors,
also the windshield frame is gone. But whoever done it did a nice
job,not sloppy. The gentleman that I bought it from says that it was
a crosley field car. Like something that they used at the factory?
Does anybody know if there was such a car. If not, I'm just going to
use it for parts.

Thanks, Bo.

If you are talking about an outside sunvisor then Crosley did make one. It
was 2 pieces of tempered masionite board with metal brackets one at the
center and 2 on outside. They were painted the same color as the car. They
had their own Crosley part number. Any other type would have been after
market. If you are talking about the inside sunvisors Crosley also made
these. They were made of the same material as the headliners. Kap

Selling out

"bltlar" <bltlar@...>
 

Selling all Crosley's & collecting Cad. limos, as they will be nicer
for Ice Cream runs. (Note date) Larry

SELLING OUT

"tmkldwwj" <tmkldwwj@...>
 

Yeah me too Larry, but I decided instead of selling out, I'm going to
make customs out of everything. I decided to take the 47 sedan, saw
it off at the top of the doors and make a hot tub out of it. Going
to use the engine to heat it and make the rear into a beer cooler.
Should make evenings at Wauseon sitting around lying about our
projects a lot easier.

bearing.

4 Bladed Fans

"rwright24127" <R.Wright@...>
 

I Know how they well help but what did they come on. I have been
seeing quite a few of them showing up on E-Bay. Ron

Re: 4 Bladed Fans

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

They were used on the Tin Block engines, Generator engines and some industrial engines. Probably some other applications. You have to watch which way the blades are pitched. There are pull fans and push fans. The generators had push fans and that would not be good for car use.

I don't know what else they might have been used on (generators,
etc.) but can tell you for sure the 4-blade fan was standard on the
Farm-O-Road.

Ron,
My military generator has a 4 bladed fan, but it is a PUSH fan, not a
PULL fan as on road vehicles. The air is pushed forward not pulled
back. It cannot be turned around to pull. Dozers have a fan that can
be reversed for summer & winter operations. In summer it pushes air
into radiator to keep dirt out of radiator. In winter you pull
blades up and turn, to pull air into radiator, past engine and into
cab to warm operator.

Thanks to you and our discussion at Wauseon I now have a Pick Up. Not
as nice as your red one, but . . . .

I think that all Cobra (tin) engines had a 4 blade fan.

RADIATOR

"tmkldwwj" <tmkldwwj@...>
 

Hey, does anyone out there have a radiator that is in decent shape
for sale? I just found out that mine for my hotshot will have to be
recored to be useable. Really didn't want to invest 175.00 right
now. Contact me at tmkldwwj@... thank you.

"Steve Turner" <karknut@...>
 

Sorry to be a bother but as I had said I am the default mechanic, given the
job not due to skill but for lack of anyone else willing/stupid enough to
try his/her hand at the project. Taking your advise, I took off the valve
cover, thus enabling me to squeeze a box end wrench over the back nut and
voila, the carburator was in my hands? My question is that in taking off
the valve cover I discovered that one of the studs/bolts that extends
through the valve cover enabling the cute little(emphasis on little) nuts to
hold it in place, came out with the cover! It appears to have been that way
for a while but of course I'm not sure. What is the best and easiest way to
reseat this stud in place? Any advise would be most welcome. You guys have
been great helping us neophytes get started with this Crosley thing.
Thanks! Steve & Carol
