Re: crank case with breather. Torque Specs.

The engine seems to run fine without the breather tube. It does take longer to put oil in when you have to fill it through the cam cover opening.You should get a copy of the Crosley repair manual from Service Motors. It lists all of the torque specifications. And a lot of other excellent advice.

Gas tank needed

Hi... Finally am getting Sweet Pea, my 1950 convertible, restored properly.  Definitely will need a gas tank in good to excellent condition. Anybody have one?
Thanks,
Jane

Some or all of the Copper Brazed (Cobra) engine blocks had a small breather tube at the back of the engine in the cam compartment.  If you have a cast iron block replacement on your crankcase, as is common, you can add a breather to your cam cover if it doesn't have one already.

It sounds like y'all are having a great time down there. Maybe next year for me! Maybe drive the other one down next year, lol. I'm only an hour N.E of the show there.
Work, work, work... ..
I do have one Crosley for sale. It's a 1947 Two Door (the Beautiful Deep Blue One). I'm out of town but can send pictures later. Take Care...have a blast.... God's speed to all the traveler's.

Wauseon was a great show

Ron D.
 

Well, I just completed my first Nationals show in Wauseon. After an almost 5 hour trip back home to unload my treasures, I am very glad I went. I bought many many parts, to get my 49 CD sedan up and running. I met, and bought from the 3 major parts dealers (multiple times each), plus a bunch of used parts vendors, and most importantly, met a lot of really nice people, who share the common bond of 1 word, Crosley. Thanks to all who put on a great show. Hope to see you all next year, with my completed project.

I just bought a brand new stainless tank with the sending unit from Service Motors at the show. It will be tough to find an original in great shape that someone will part with.

Thanks, that's good to know.

What's This Worth?

Mike
 

So i found this for sale on craigslist for $800 says it's a 49  and says it runs good. Rear frame has been bobbed off. I'm just not  sure what it's value is?  Also it would be a 300mi round trip for me to get it and cost me $200 to get it.

Looks like a 250 dollar machine to me

I’d say it’s worth $500..
And, maybe they could meet 1/2 way?

I bought a whole 49 for that price. A running gear sans motor sold at Wauseon for $65

Re: What's This Worth?

Richard Williams
 

It looks like maybe $300 to $350.

Re: Wauseon Newb suggestions?

1200 miles and 21 hours behind the wheel later ... definitely worth it.   Everyone was so friendly and generous with their knowledge, I got some space back in my garage, and am super pumped to come back with my car ('51 Super Sports) next year!

It was a great show this year record count on cars on the field around 135 for the week. We got home about an hour ago after 9.5 hour drive home. Kept running into almost stopped traffic on the interstate and then not see any reason for the slow down.

Next years show will be July 11-13 2019, never to early to start planning. It will be the 50th anniversary for the Crosley club and the 80 anniversary of the first production Crosley. Pre-War Crosleys will be the Spotlight Class.
