The biggest challenge will be all the radiuses 4 cab corners, door panels, Etc. Good thing they don't need to be perfect for my street rod, haha.

Thank you James. If you could take pictures with a ruler along the side I can figure out the dimensions from there. I also want the width and profile of looking from the top down. Any detail would be appreciated and extremely helpful.

I would love a truck like that but I don't want to use something that could be restored for what I'm creating. I just need basic Dimensions because my Roadster is based on Crosley Axel's an overall profile.

Hello all,

I am working on my Crosley Roadster, which I am fabricating due to lack of sources for parts. I was wondering if anybody has dimensional information for all profiles of a pre-war era automobile?

James,

Thank you. These pics will be very helpful. Maybe someday I can post my project on here. Not for the purists but more a dedication to my father. 

Thanks again,

Pistons and Connecting Rods

 

Old posts here reference a number of sources for performance pistons and rods but as far as I can tell,none are still operational. Anyone know of current manufacturers or fabricators who can supply Crosley parts?

Crosley door hinges / back seat

Mike Mayberry
 

I am in need of door hinges and a few back seats. I heard that crosley door hinges are actually model A hinges but I might be wrong. As far as back seats go, I own 8 Crosley's and still have yet to buy one with a back seat. If anyone has some extra seats let me know. I am located in California. Thank you Mikemayberry75@ gmail.com

Piston Identification

 

In an earlier post I asked about "Turbulator Pistons"  and learned that turbulator relates to the combustion chamber not the piston. But here is the part that caused the question. Can anybody Identify it?

Should say JAHNS on the inside.

Rear axle seals

Mike S
 

I noticed a challenge in the 48 station wagon I just purchased.  I parked the car in a machine shed that is on a 8 degree slope and came out the next day to find a dribble of axle lube coming down the wheel.  Does this mean the axle was too full, or are the axle seals bad.....or both???

Re: Piston Identification

 

is it a standard replacement for stock?

Re: Piston Identification

Butch
 

No, that is an aftermarket, high compression piston, as mentioned, probably made by Jahns.

The regular Crosley pistons, were all flat tops.

Probably both. Also check closely for cracks in the hub sleeve. Crosleys are too well known for that.
