Front seal oil leak

"cosmicray48236" <sgreiner@...>
 

The front seal on the engine is leaking. I have obtained a new rope
seal from Service Motors. I understand that the seal is actually 2
pieces. I had hoped to be able to replace the seal without dropping
the shaft. Is this possible? The seal that is still in the engine
appears to be one piece. Is it possible to only replace 1/2 of the
seal....the lower half or must the whole thing be replaced?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

we need igition parts (coil cap points rotor condenser) now i looked
at the Parts interchange guide and i see the nappa numbers but can't
find any of the parts on line does anybody know which car these parts

but used parts from an existing vehicle. if i can find that vehicle
then i might be able to better find parts.

TQ Midgets

"Don Schumacher" <don35ford@...>
 

Hello,


Well finally after checking in on this site for several months I
see some talk about Crosley powered three quarter midgets.
Hallejuah!
I reccently acquired a TQ. It was originally Crosley powered
but converted to motorcycle engine later. I got it as a kind of
rolling basket case with 4 Crosley blocks and enough parts to maybe
build two engines. One of the blocks is a Fageol 44 with Braje cam
and water jacket covers, Weber carb ,headers for side pipe, and a
Vertex magneto. I am looking for a Braje dual carb intake and an
aluminum oil pan.
The car has rectangular tube frame with torsion bar suspension, tube
front axle, Friction shocks up front and Houdailes in rear, an in/out
box, Crosley rear end with some sort of quick change box mounted to
the front of it. It has an aluminum belly pan, fiberglass body, hood,
and grill shell w Kurtis style grill.
I have several questions for other Crosley TQ owners about motor
mounts, bolting engine to in/out box, gears for quick change and so
on. Its hard to find vintage Crosley TQ owners in SoCal so any help
would surely be appreciated.
Thanks
Don Schumacher

39 sedan

"hivoltteacher" <hivoltteacher@...>
 

I have a '39 sedan that was supposedly used around Washington D.C.
during the war. It has a radio, at least what's left, red wheels and
dark blue body. It also has red and white pinstriping from the nose
to the back. Is this original? I heard that some cement pumpers
use crosley parts, has any one ever heard about this? I guess
Waukeshau is useless for parts, I've contacted their web site and it
looks like they have nothing to do anymore with the 2 cyl engine.

--- Don, if you could get some pictures into photos to show what your
concerns are we [crosley affectionados] can look for what you want to
know about in cars we see and ask the proper questions....I am
surprised that you can't find compodres in So. Cal. as I thought that
was the 3/4 hub...look in Hotrod Magazine for a feature spread on
3/4's; was around late 60's...might be some clues in pictures..I have
seen at least 10 different Crosley [or descendats] powered TQ's in
and around connecticut auto shows; even four at one alone and one
this summer with an engine built by the late Joey D'angelo from North
Haven, CT. Seb.

"Don Schumacher" <don35ford@...>
 

Thanks Seb, I will try to post some pics in the next couple of days.
We've got lots of Full midgets and 1/4 midgets but not too many
Tq's. Supposedly mine was originally raced at indoor tracks in
Indiana and Ohio.
I don't remember the TQ spread in hot Rod but I'll try to find there
archive site and find the article. They did a huge 1/4 midget spread
Feb.58
I just saw the awesome pic of Jerry Bickells TQ in the photo section
of this site.

Pinstriping/Waukesha

x779@...
 

When stripping my '42 for repainting in 1989, I found a double
Chinese-red pinstripe under the existing repaint! It seems that the
Chicago factory dealer might have had that done. I replicated it, and it
looks great.

Waukesha is very interested in their two-cylinder engines. They are
building a factory museum, and my '42 was the pace-car this past summer
for a go-cart Gran Prix race in Kenosha. Waukesha had a factory racing
team there and they were swarming all over the '42 wth cameras. Ask
their webmaster to put you in contact with the proper people there.

Regards....
Lou

Can anyone tell me why my brakes will not release after they are

easy way to adjust them. I've looked them over and they look pretty
complicated. Thanks for your help. Dave
