Engines and parts for sale

Pat Curran

After removing the side plates and finding all the crud there I decided to remove the radiator and have it rodded out. I found a local radiator shop that completely overhauled the radiator for only $140. They told me that the radiator was about 40 percent blocked. 

Re: VC instrument trim rings

Finding rings with decent chrome is the problem Robert.  I have a few sets out being polished right now.  I'm going to see what kind of finish I can get out if the metal alone and clear coat.  I had a few chromed last year and the chrome was so hard I couldn't satisfactorally Crimp them back on without cracking the Chrome.

Re: Running on Three Cylinders

Seb,

Although I doubt that the spring broke (this would have shown up when checking clearances), it's quite possible that some carbon has dislodged and caught between the valve and the seat.

With the cam cover off, the follower located at the center of the cam base circle (lobe pointed straight up), take a hammer and a punch (preferably a soft punch, even a hardwood dowel) and smack it forcefully, several times.

If this can be done, with the air hose attached to the spark plug hole, it will be more effective.

Exhaust valves and seats, do burn occasionally, but not real often on Crosleys, and it's not an all at once thing. The exhaust valves were made of good material. Numbers on and four, exhaust seats, are prone to recession and burning, due to poor coolant circulation and cooling.

I hope that this helps, it's my best long distance, diagnosis for now.

Butch

As the title states my 47 CC is running on three cylinders..This happened while going down the road at 40 mph, no hint at anything being wrong prior..No pinging, no over heating, no extra noise..Cyl #4 Just stopped running..Plenty of spark; the plug looked fine but replaced it and still no fire.Valve clearance is at spec of .004/.006.Checked compression and found #30 lbs, all others are at #120..Put air adapter in spark plug hole and hooked air supply up and air was exiting the exhaust pipe..So bad exh valve or seat..Am I missing some thing? There was no clue to something being wrong; I didn't think a valve could go bad in an instant..Any input???

Re: Over Heating

hi
Believe modern antifreeze like the stuff found in yellow bottles in auto supply stores is the cause of gunk in Crosley engines. After scraping the gunk from my engine block I switched to Xerex antifreeze with the hope that it would not cause gunk.
If regular Crosley parts suppliers can provide stock side plates that should be the way to go.

I saw a set at the nationals this summer for $150. Maybe watch eBay, but they won't come up very often. Asking for them here, is probably your best bet.

I talked with Blaz Brajevich (Braje) this afternoon. He has shut down his machine shop but still has Braje Crosley engine parts. He's going to send me a list of available items. The number that Whistler gave is disconnected but Blaz answers the following number 310-316-2725.

Re: Over Heating

Andy Farley
 

It's not too hard to do. 7/16 socket, 7/16 wrench both a short one and a long one. Drain all of the coolant. Remove the starter,. Make sure you cover or plug the dipstick hole. Remove the hose from the engine to the water pump. Remove the bolts and the covers come off easily by prying them off with a screwdriver. The gunk was an inch high and packed up between the cylinders. It scraped out easily with a screwdriver. Then I flushed anything that was left out with a hose end sprayer. I ordered new side plates from Service Motors mine were badly corroded. $35 for both.
