Hi-Jacking Threads

Jim Bollman
 

I have said this many times. Please start a new thread when the topic changes. Pretty hard to sell a 2cyl Crosley when people look back for the message and it is hid in a thread about post-war emblems.

Please just select "New Topic" when changing topics. Or in the case of the 2cyl ad just use the thread that was already started to say it is still available.

I will be moving the 2cyl messages to their own thread so please don't comment on the topic in the Emblems for sale thread.

I know a Bill Spear who makes ceramic emblems for Bantams. See his work at https://wmspear.com/catalog.php?cat=27
He may be a resource for Crosley pins or emblems

Any explanation for the crank failures?  I assume nodular iron cranks were available. 

Re: New Crosley of the Month

Jim Bollman
 

Not sure if they used a special crank or not. The speculation I have heard is, since they ran the propeller through multi V belts off the back of the engine and it had to be very tight, it put a big load on the already fragile crank. An  no outboard bearing to carry the load might have made it all work.

I noticed that the engine used a Cobra block.  Were the good cranks even available prior to 1948 when the Ciba blocks came out.  I would think that if the cast blocks were available, one would have been used in the airplane. It would seem that adding an outboard bearing would have been an easy engineering installation.  It would have to have been removable to install the V-belts.

Cast blocks did start being used till late January 1949, Early 49 Crosleys had the CoBra engines.

1939 Coupe Convertible

Hellbs
 

Hi all, I tired to post a message back on Feb 11th but it never showed up, nor did I ever receive any replies.  So I am going to try again.

My name is Matt and I live in Iowa.  My dad has a '39 coupe convertible that he believes my grandpa bought new.  We recently got it running but are having carb issues.  It seams like its starving for fuel.  It starts right up and I did drive it around the driveway a bit but if I let off the gas and let it idle, it chokes itself out and dies.  We are looking to rebuild the carb but I am finding misleading information on the internet as to what I need for a rebuild kit.  The carb on the engine is a Tillotson model DY9C.  What I am seeing online is that the car should have model DY1A.  It is the only model listed for the '39.  Needless to say we are a bit confused and don't want to buy the wrong kit and then tear apart the carb and not be able to rebuild properly. 

Can anyone help me with this?

Also please note, my dad did say that my grandpa did buy a 2nd '39 many years ago to replace some parts on the one we have now.  We are not looking to restore this car completely but would really like to make it a driver and just tool around town and enjoy the car. 

Next thing on our agenda, is the brakes.  As long as my dad can remember, the brakes have never been very good on the car and actually rolled the car going around a corner when the brakes were completely gone (back in the 60s).  Any ideas on how to fix, adjust, or perhaps add hydraulic brakes? 

Attached are a couple of pictures of the car, the carb, and screenshot of the information I found about the carb online.

All thoughts, comments and suggestions are welcome!

Thank you all in advance

Welcome aboard Matt, please join the Crosley club (on-line application at the website).  Nice find, and your carburetor is the correct one for the car - easy rebuild and kits are available from our club Crosley suppliers.

Matt,   You will find rebuild kits from the Crosley suppliers. Though I wonder if you just need some good quality fuel, and maybe check a few other things to get it running properly. If you do not know already, this would be a great year to join us at the Crosley Automobile Club National meet. This is the big 50 year celebration if the club, and 80 years of the car. We would like to see as many pre-wars at the meet as possible. It is at The Fulton County Fairgrounds, Wauseon, Ohio, July 8 - 13  2019  you can see the schedule of events and the pre-registration form on the crosley club website.
Jeffrey Ackerman,   Chairman of the meet
