The Homelite cam will work on the Crosley engine, but you must use
the Homelite cam bearing caps, and valve cover.

I have a 1941 Crosley Convertible Sedan which has the original
engine. This little imp of an engine runs beautifully and never
fails to start for me. While there are no signs of overheating or
any other problems, the oil pressure appears to be lower
than "usual"
from idle to top end. Its been checked out and no particular
problems are apparent with either the engine or the oil pressure
gauge. Is it possible that this is a characteristic of this engine?
Its been over 50 years since I owned my first 1941 Crosley and I
don't believe that it showed much oil pressure (I probably don't
either at my age) but I honestly cannot remember!
I would welcome the advice and thoughts of some of you fellow
Crosley veterans out there.
This is a real re-discovery process for me. My kids heard about my
original Crosley (first car) for years and were used to seeing an
old picture of me standing beside it. The stories were great of
course! So the gang surprised me on my 66th with a beautiful 1941
Crosley Convertible Sedan...literally drove it down my street,
pulled it over in front of me, and handed me the keys!
Neat kids and a very happy old time Crosley Fan is in business
again!


Don,what was your actual oil pressure,with an accurate gauge? Just
curious...

Thanks to all for the comments, tips, and responses. Great to have
the support! It appears for the moment that I may have a problem
with the use of a lighter than required oil....we'll be checking
that out along with a couple of other ideas! I'll report back after
a bit. Stay well.........Uncle Don

crosley conv. Questions.

"Chuck Koehler" <chuckhk@...>
 

Are the 3 top bows the same?? Also is there any support around the
rear below the window?? I can't seem to find any photos. Thanks,
Chuck.

Re: crosley conv. Questions.

"BUTCH WILLIAMS" <service-motors@...>
 

Chuck,

The 3 bows are all DIFFERENT.

Are you talking about support for the window glass as part of the cloth or
for the cloth as part of the body?

I think I might have an old parted out convertible body I can look at (only
the steel, no fabric left).

was there an Indian Motocycle/Crosley connection?

"bruce wayne" <manyolkarz@...>
 

I was told years ago that old Crosleys and Indian Motocycles shared
the same headlights. Now a guy I know has an old Indian trike which
has a Crosley rear axle. His rear wheels are absolutely junk and he
needs two more. They are 4 lug and take 15 inch tires. Did the
RoadOFarm use 15s? Thanks Bruce

Re: was there an Indian Motocycle/Crosley connection?

"BARRY SEEL" <CROSLEY19@...>
 

There was no connection between Crosley, and Indian. I know my,
Grandfather was the last president of Indian Motocycle Co. They built
53, 1952 Indian Patrols (hoping to sell these to the NYC police Dept)
these were 3 wheeled trikes using a 500 cc vertical twin and a Boston
Gear right angle drive off of the primary chain to a flywheel, clutch
trans and rear end that was almost identical to the Crosley. Indian
bought the transmissions from Borg Warner, and the rears from Dana
Corp. The trike originally had 12 inch rear wheels, and had a top
speed of 38 mph. If that one had 15 inch someone put them on to
increse the speed. Indian did not use the same headlite as Crosley.
The Indian headlamp was made by Autolamp Co.

My '42 Crosley has Moto-Lamp headlamps, and I saw a pair on eBay a
couple of years ago that were being billed as Indian headlamps by the
vendor.
So there may be a common supplier regarding Moto-Lamp, but I've seen
early Crosleys also equipped with other makes of headlamps besides
Moto-Lamp.

Regards....

MoToR's '35 to '50 manual has it as Stabilite for '39 - '46, but I also have
a Guide Lamp manual that says Crosley and Indian used Motolamp... Go figure.

Maybe,as was his pattern with other things, P.C. used what ever he could get

Re: 4- pistons+rings--crosley engine!(N.O.S.) .060 over----THANK YOU

"BUTCH WILLIAMS" <service-motors@...>
 

Hello William,

For standard flat top type pistons, .030 is the largest I have.

I do have some very high dome .100 oversized, but I've NOT tried to set up
an engine with them yet.

I would have to check, but I'm pretty sure I still have some .060 rings
left.

By the way, someone made mention of Jahns Pistons, a few years ago I bought
out their remaining inventory of Crosley Pistons (most of those have already
been sold).
Unless they have produced some more, which I doubt because that is why they
sold them out, they will not be an option.

Hi Bruce,
I'm not sure if it will help but late 40's Studebaker

were narrow wheels.

Re: annual meeting

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

Not much to talk about, it was brought up in the Friday night open session that we should have two days of selling. The board Friday night decided to leave it up to the membership. It was discussed and voted on Saturday at the annual membership meeting and it was an overwhelming volte to leave it as it is with Saturday only sales and Friday would be for talk, fun and other event like the games and rally.

The big push for more time to vend is over rated. I was standing in the flea market with several other buyers at 5:45AM on Saturday and not one vendor was open, even though they were told they could start as early as they wanted. By noon on Saturday the flea market was pretty much dead with only a few buyers still wandering around. It only takes so long to look at 40 or so flea market spaces.

Bill,thinking about it after the show,I think it's a "have your cake
and eat it too" thing. I don't see why it HAS to be an "official"
position anyway. The excuses against 2 day sales just don't wash with
me. Let each member decide what they want to do. Obviously those that
would rather vend
or shop aren't concerned with the events,rally, or other stuff anyway.

There's enough members now to do both events and sales, if that is
what they want to do,without detracting from anything. Let's have
less politics and more fun.

But...I got out voted! Let's hear what you think about it Bill.

Just my opinion,
Dave Coudriet.
