Hi ron 
Service motors does have the wiring harness for your car in stock and they do have all the correct ends and are just like the originals.  You may find others a bit less expensive but remember one thing, you get what you pay for especially when it come to wiring.

My problems usually with the installer not the harness.  Seriously I have used harnesses from Both Service Motors and Yankee along with Harnesses unlimited and had no problem.

The harness I installed a few months ago in my '48 wagon came from Yankee Crosley Parts. I actually only looked at the numbers on the wires and the corresponding paper that came with it a few times. Every wire matched exactly as it should and was an easy install. My '48 had both tail lights, so I added the signals, and had ordered the harness with that in mind. It all works great ! It also looks very original. Wherever you decide to get it, I suggest the pre-made to order option over making your own.

It is easy to remove the old one by just cutting it out but the new wiring is some what of a problem to get back in place. The harness I got for Service Motors at $550 has the correct connections and then you just have to follow the wiring schematic. Takes time but worth it. Be patient. Good luck.

@ Brian Dlapa, I am interested in the title you have for a 1948 wagon. Just let me know how much it is and what I need to do to have it transfered to pennsylvania. It would be easier on me if anyone in this group has a pa title.

Thanks guys, for all the help.

Re: Cardboard deflectors around radiator

Does anyone have any supporting pictures, drawings, and measurements for making these for the CD Wagon?
I want to make them out of something more durable than cardboard.
Thanks

I suggest ordering a set from Yankee Crosley Parts, using them for a template, and then donate them to the silent auction at the 2019 national meet.

Oil Filler Tube

Jim Hostetter
 

My 1951 Crosley Ciba engine does not have an oil filler tube. There is no location on the engine block like I have seen in photos. Does anybody know why?

Re: Oil Filler Tube

Tim Hamblen
 

More than likely, even though it is a "CIBA" the lower crankcase was reused from a COBRA. They did not have a filler tube.

Crank cases with serial numbers under 100,000 started out their lives as cobra engines. Crankcases with serial numbers above 100,000 were born as CIBA engines.

I would agree accept to say not all CoBra's had fillers, some did. All engines that started life as cast block engines did. What is the engine number on the side of the crankcase.

Re: Cardboard deflectors around radiator

They are very simple. You have a radiator support running across the front. The cardboards fill in the two gaps on either side of the radiator from the upper support down to the lower support. The one on the horn side has a hole cut in it for the horn bell to stick through. Look close and you will see the holes in the upper and lower support  for the clips that hold the boards. The lower 1" inch or so of the cardboards is bent at a 90 deg and the clips go down into the support while the upper ones go in horizontal. Give it a look and you will see . The one everyone misses is the one in the hood. Look close at the hood and  how the air flows and you will see how it is shaped.I go to the local supply that sells 1/8" foam core for sign boards. Sign shops put vinyl graphics on it. Won't rot or decay.

Re: Oil Filler Tube

Jim Bollman
 

Should have a filler then. It would be on the side of the crankcase on the spark plug side of the engine. Very strange, guess you have to slow fill through the vale cover vent.
