Re: For Sale: 49 Pickup, 51 Super Sports, Tractor, Parts - PA - $3500

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

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....

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

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

In all the versions I’ve seen. There is no pan on the rear from the factory. Some folks have added them for the aesthetics.

With no knowledge of what Crosley offered as standard, I would like to offer a plausible explanation.  Rear bumpers were an option on Ford, Chevy, etc. pickups of the 40s-50's era.  Is it possible that the Crosley rear pickup bumper was also a dealer installed option?  If so, the splash pan installation would have required not only painting to match the body, but also the removal of the tailgate hinge to insert the splash pan in its place under the hinge bolts.  All this would have increased the cost of installation beyond what economy minded Crosley buyers would pay.  After I wrote this, I found this picture from a CC brochure with a wagon fendered pick up without a bumper.  This supports my theory.

I do agree the wagon fendered pickup looks much better with the splash pan, but I think the roundside pu looks ok without a splash pan.

To throw some factory photos on the other side of the argument. Here is a bunch of photos from a CC pickup flyer. Most of the photos you can see a bumper. I don't remember seeing any reference to optional bumpers one way or another.

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

The 49 PU I just got is in good enough condition that I want to do a really good , authentic rest on it.That's why I am asking. The bumper and a splash pan are missing , so I need to know if I need both or just a bumper. Someone in it's past has fabbed up a custom roll pan and that has to go. I've not got under it yest to see how I will have to return it to it's OEM state. I may need the two dog ears under the rear quarters too. The worst of the body is the tailgate. It's rotted away in the center of the thing, both the skin and the support inside. So I will be jonesing a new tailgate at Wauseon.(and maybe the dog ears)
