What aluminum cover are we talking about?

You should not need it as long as you have a clean radiator, clean engine, correct timing and a correct thermostat.

I agree that more fan should not be necessary if everything else is good.  But if you do, try the four blade Farm-O-Road fan.  It fits the same as the regular fan.  Just be careful that you don't get a generator four blade fan.  It is designed to blow air out of the radiator instead of pulling it in from the grill.

Air dams are important too. Some are under the bumper such as VC. On both sides of the radiator in CC and also in the hood on CD.  If  things are right mine has never over heated in WV mountains.

Re: 12v conversion with alternator

L.E. Hardee
 

Andy, from the picture it appears that the water pump shaft is not quite in line with the alternator bolt.  I couldn't tell exactly which direction due to the angle of the picture.  While the flex hose coupling allows it to work, you will put side loading on the water pump bearings and seal.  If you run the car a lot, it can cause leaks and eventual water pump failure.  A spacer of the right thickness between the water pump and the crankcase with appropriate longer bolts would solve right to left alignment.  I am not quite sure how to solve any up and down alignment.

My solution to the water pump drive problem works. I'm just not sure that the bolt coming out of the alternator is really strong enough.  I'm just trying to make what I bought work. I've only had my Crosley for a few months in time I'll figure out a better method. Never had a Crosley before but I love these little cars. 


 

Re: 12v conversion with alternator

You make a good point. I looked it over and while it doesn't look like shiming the water pump would work because of how previous owners mounted it, it looks like I can shim the alternator mounting bracket to get good shaft alignment. Thank you for your observation. 

Trailer tie down locations

Big week here -- getting my (formerly my Dad's) '51 Super Sports back from Ted Dellacamera next week after many years in Dad's and then my garage.   Planning to celebrate with a new 7x14 enclosed trailer.   The dealer will install 4 D rings in the trailer for tie downs -- are there any guidance on where to put them?  I assume they would typically be near the front and rear and a bit inboard from the edges.

Re: Trailer tie down locations

You are correct on the location. While Ted has the car, have him install the frame mount tie down parts for you. He has them for sale, and you will be glad you have them.

Re: Trailer tie down locations

Correct , just remember you have a 12 foot car and a 14 foot trailer.  You dont have a lot of extra room.  The tie downs need to be placed with that in mind.

Re: Large Fan?

parkhunter@...
 

Four blade fans are typically used on parade vehicles that spend most of their time idling. When driving, more airflow comes from traveling at speed than the fan produces. As others have mentioned, it is probably more critical to install the cardboard air dams around the radiator, which ensure all that fresh cool 45-mph air goes through the radiator instead of around it.

Re: Trailer tie down locations

L.E. Hardee
 

When I was in a situation where the space for tie downs was too short for the ratchet to fit (ie. 12' car in 14' trailer), I have run the straps from the front of the car to the rear trailer tie down and the straps from the rear of the car to front trailer tie down.

Re: Trailer tie down locations

Jim Bollman
 

If you want the trailer for more general hauling/flexibility consider having E-Track installed front to back then you can put anchors where you need them and haul multiple things tied down. Cost a lot more than 4 D rings but handy. Besides 4 tie down hoops I have the E-Track finings to drop a 2X6 or 2X4 in so I can block the tires front and back.

Re: Trailer tie down locations

Tom Gerhard
 

Thanks all.   For now, the trailer will only be used for the Crosley, but I will look into doing E-Track as some point; I like the idea of a 2x4 to block the tires; in the short term, I may screw one to the floor in front.
I'll ask Ted to make sure to add the tie down parts.
