Yep.. explains it. So the Moon Trim rings won’t be “correct” but still be a good looking alternative..
Thanks for the pics

Re: Sad News - Member Joe Miller Has Passed

Steve
 

Jim,

Thank you for sharing this with the club.  Joe was gentleman in the club and a friend to many.  I went online and read his obituary.  I shared it with my wife who agreed it could well serve as a template for my own obituary.  One part would require no change, “He loved restoring his Crosleys.  He couldn't park his car in the garage with all of his Crosleys in there.”

 

We missed Joe at Wauseon last year.  Let’s be sure we remember him at Wauseon this year.

Subject: [Crosley-Gang] Sad News - Member Joe Miller Has Passed

 

I got this news from Jeff Gladden last night, here is all I know.

Hate to pass on this sad news, however, we lost our friend Joe Miller who passed away today.  He was great and active Member of the Crosley Club.  He served as Director of Regions for many years and led the Keystone Region as President for many years too.  In recent years, he has been our Keystone Region Editor.  Joe was also the organizer of our Road Rally at Wauseon for all these years too.  Needless to say Joe was a big part of the Club and Region; he will be missed by so many.

 

The arrangements I know are as follows: 

 

Family/Visitation Thursday May 16th 2-4 and 7-9 at Mantins Funeral Home in Ford City, PA, and the funeral will be on Friday May 17th at 11 a.m. at United Rockville Lutheran Church, Ford City, PA

 

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

 

Regards,

Jeff

Micro & Mini Car Show for a Cause October 18-20 Dover, DE

Michael Braun
 

Well, it looks like I have hit “Critical Mass” for my October Charitable Car Show event.  The big hurdle was Liability Insurance for the Dover Downs Track and that problem has been overcome.  Although there is still a great deal of work to do, here are my plans. 

The Dover Downs Monster Mile International Speedway has graciously allowed us use of the Track Saturday October 19th for a Charitable Fund Raiser.  Participating Micro and Mini Cars will circle the track at slow speed (Maximum 30 mph).  Riders will be on board who will have donated to a local charity, The Elizabeth Murphy School.

The Murphy School has been around since 1922 and provides residential group care for children ages 6 to 18 who have issues of dependency, neglect, or homelessness.  These kids are clearly “at risk” and without the care afforded by The Elizabeth Murphy School and its dedicated staff the outcome for these children and the society in which they live is not good.  Supporting the work of the School is a wonderful opportunity to put our little cars to good use while we enjoy ourselves.

Friday’s Sign in will be at the Historic Area of downtown Dover.  After getting settled, we will gather at my residence in Dover Friday evening, October 18th, for food and to review procedures for Saturday’s Track Event.  In order to maximize safety, vehicles will circle the track single file with at least 50 yards between them.  Volunteers will be on hand to load and unload passengers, and this will be a time for them to familiarize themselves with your vehicle.  If anyone in your party wants to help, please let me know.

Saturday morning, we will join the local Amish community for breakfast at their annual School Fundraising Consignment Auction.  Dover has a large Amish community.  Their Auction provides a “Fair-like” atmosphere and the opportunity for members of your party, who may not be that interested in antique cars, to bid on all sorts of items including things like Amish handmade quilts or just enjoy the food and atmosphere.   After breakfast the cars will travel to a local Amish sawmill for a demonstration, then it’s on to a tour of Dover on our way to the Dover Downs track.  We have the track to ourselves from 12-4.  After the Track event we will all meet at a local Restaurant for dinner (separate checks).

On Sunday, after a light breakfast at my home, we will do a back roads drive to the Dover Air Force Base AMC Museum.  The Museum has an excellent collection of vintage Aircraft and we will have our own Tour Guide.  Afterwards we will drive through Dover to the Murphy School Grounds where our vehicles will be on display.  While there, Murphy School personnel will take small groups of us for a “behind the scenes” tour of their facility.  After this event, some of you may want to start on your way home while the rest can decide if we want to just chill or try another restaurant. 

Attendance at this event will cost $30 per car and driver plus $5 for each additional person in your group to help cover part of the cost of Friday Evening’s food.  Some details like the Hotel accommodations still need to be worked out.  You should know that all monies, after expenses, will be donated to The Murphy School.  My goal is to raise $10,000 for this exceptional charity.  Join us in a unique experience for a worthwhile cause. 

If you are interested in attending, please let me know.  I expect to have a website up shortly where additional information will be posted as it becomes available.  I hope to see you all in October.

I assume this member has had his eMail hacked and this spam got into Crosley-Gang that way. Robert has been a member since 2002 so is trusted. I have put his messages on moderate till I am sure he has fixed the problem.

Do not click on the link and do not respond, I am deleting the messages from the archive.

Crankcase Bolts

 

In an earlier thread there was mention that the best choice for crankcase bolts is "late model bolts without the oil groove...". I have 5 blocks but none are late model. Service Motors doesn't offer these bolts. Any idea where I can get them or is there a substitude?

Re: Crankcase Bolts

dale@servicemotors.net
 

Service Motors does have those bolts just give us a call.  866-449-0029.  We have a lot of parts that may not be on the web site or our price list.

Great. Thanks Dale.

Re: Crankcase Bolts

Jim,

Please be aware, those bolts (without the groove) can only be used in the late style, big oil hole crankcases.

If used in an early style crankcase, immediate engine failure/destruction, is pretty well assured.

crosley 18 wheeler

thing73@...
 

Hello, My Crosley 18 wheeler can be seen at www.crosleygarage.com. There are many photos and videos available on the site. It has a 1965 Chevy 153  engine with a 3 speed muncie transmission and a 1960 MG midget or Sprite rear end. The truck was not restored but everything was rebuilt. I recently replaced the rear axles, bearing and brakes. A few months back I rebuilt the drive shaft with new joints, chevy on 1 end and MG on the other. The truck portion has 10 tires with tubes and 8 of them are fairly new. 2 are old. The trialer has old tires with new tubes and has had the bearings packed , the floor replaced and new wire harness, plus and bulb sockets. The brakes are vacuum and are disconnected. It is registered 2999# so no brakes are needed in PA where it is registered. The PINTO signs on the doors are magnetic and can be removed. I added under dash Air conditioner with a Sandon 508 compressor a few years ago.  It has a 12 volt 21 circuit GM wire harness in it with a 80 amp 1 wire alternator. Trailer hooks up and has manual landing gear on each side. The seats where just recovered with the same color and material ( pressed pleat) used in the 70's. speedometer and gas gauge do not work. Oil pressure gauge is under hood. The price is $30,000.00 where is as is. I drive it local cars shows here in saint petersburg. The furthest I have driven it is 20 miles  one way. It has a 5 gal. gas tank and get about 15 mpg with a/c on. The passanger window has a crack in the front corner down low. Rear window is plastic. Offers accepted. You can drive it in the storage facility if you want to see it here. I currently have it insured with Hagerty. This is a one of a kind piece and is just that. For a business marketing tool or to just drive to local shows, it would be fantastic to own. I am selling as my wife and I are now retired and the indoor storage unit where i keep it is close to 300.00 a month now. So $3600. a year to store it is becoming prohibited. Remember, it has been in my family since 1955. I have owned it sine 2009.
Thanks
