1-    Air scoop and wings (needing repair Ok)
2-   (2) Bumper Guards with some chrome
3-    Face cover for org Crosley heater (mines missing)
4-    Repairable original fuel tank
Thought I would give this a try as I would love to find used original parts

I agree with Jim.  There is 3500 in extra parts without the vehicles.   It is,easily worth double the price.

Ahh, it's mislisted. He wants 7500 or so for the entire package.

I wondered if that was the case, it kind of seemed like the listing was geared more for just the truck at 3500, 7500 might not be unreasonable if you wanted to mess with it, lot of work there though,  if someone buys the collection I might be interested in the vent window doors pictured....

With all the price changes, the fact that it was on a LasVegas CraigsList and the Crosleys are in PA starts to look suspicious.

He's definitely a wheeler dealer. He said he posted all over and specifically in LV just to get Dale's attention. He knows what he's doing.

Ted at Yankee also tried dealing with this fella. The guy was very aggresive with Ted. Ted ended up saying, no thanks.

Too bad, looks l a lot of nice stuff, but the market is only going to bear so much,  and it’s a lot of work/money to buy transport and resell stuff so you’d have to buy it right to make anything if planning on reselling,  it’s not like he’s sitting on a pile of Bugatti parts or something

Where Does Oil Where Block Bolts on Come From?

Dennis Terdy
 

"Oil in ledge under engine side plates (10 bolts each side)"

I have not seen a Crosley yet without oil pooled in the ledge beneath the side plates (ones covering cylinders on both sides) of CIBA engine. I have tightened the oil pressure connection to the block on both of my Crosleys - still leaking. What is the source? Please advise. Thank you.


Re: Where Does Oil Where Block Bolts on Come From?

Jim Bollman
 

I moved your question to a new topic where it is more visible.
Please start a new thread when starting a new topic.

Cam Cover and Fuel Pump gaskets are where I normally see the leaks coming from.

Re: Where Does Oil Where Block Bolts on Come From?

dale@servicemotors.net
 

Its the bolts that hold down the cylinder to the crankshaft housing.  I use copper sealing washers under the nuts and seems to stop the leaks.

Some of our engines are not well ventilated causing blow by pressure to build up, seals to leak, dipsticks and caps lost, oil all over the engine, chassis, roads, etc. Crosley added crankcase breathers at some point, but that was only partly remedial. The problem of blow-by pollution and leaks was solved when manufactures were forced to improve the management of crankcase gasses.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crankcase_ventilation_system

On mine it was the casting seam behind the generator bracket.  I guess I tightened the fitting too tight and cracked it.  Tried to weld it and was a no go.

CD trucks ..splash pan on rear or not ??

Tim Hamblen
 

There are so few pictures of trucks to begin with and the CDs even more so, so the question, did CD pickups have a rear splash pan between body and bumper ? I know the CCs  did not but what about the CDs
