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.

As I was working on my 49 Sedan restoration yesterday, I came to a sad conclusion. When I was pulling out the torn cardboard radiator sides, I found several of the wires were dry rotted and the insulation was cracking off. I did more checking, and found several other spots where this was happening. Well, it makes sense to go big, and change the whole wiring harness, to avoid future wiring problems. My question is, who have you used as a new harness supplier, and were you happy with it? There are several listed in the Crosley parts suppliers listing. Did anyone have problems with a particular suppliers harness? Did it come with correct terminals?  I see prices vary from about $500 to about $700.

@ 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.

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.

Look behind the front pulley, at the front crank seal area. Does the engine have a "one piece" seal but no retaining screws (located at about the "10 and 2 o'clock positions)?

I have had a lot of crankcases in that configuration. As I understand it, those were commercial crankcases (Thermoking, I believe) and the oil fill was on the oil pan. I had a lot of NOS oil pans, with the oil fill on the front, the oil filler cap, also had a short dipstick attached to it.

I was made, painfully aware of those details, when I was building an engine a few years ago. The engine was completed and I went to install the oil fill tube, that's when I discovered the absence of the boss for it.

Complete teardown and start over, very LONG night, but a happy customer in the end.

I think you are reading the number on the block and not the one on the crankcase (the aluminum bottom end)

I have not seen the boards for a CD but I built replacements for my VC from galvinized tin. They worked great.

Re: Cardboard deflectors around radiator

I have some spare heavy black plastic sheeting left over from a landscaping project (http://bamboogarden.com/barrier.htm) in my yard that I may use. It is flexible, very strong, and can be cut and drilled with woodworking tools and welded with a soldering iron and zip ties. I'm not sure what the measurements are right now, but the roll is 30" wide, plenty large enough since the radiator is not that tall. I have air deflectors made of this material on the forward crash guards of my kz1000 police bike for use during the winter to keep my legs warm and dry. When I have them done, I will document and share.
