I had a crosley billet crank, it was turned out of one solid piece of steel and had two counter weights for each rod. I left it in the demonstration parts bin when I quit teaching the engine machine shop classes at Evergreen College in San Jose . Who knows if it is still there after over 25 years ago. Those little OHC hot shots were really high reving engines.

I was going to say the easiest way to attack the Midwest rust bucket is with a torch, but you are already on that game...

Been a while since posting. Crazy busy at work and the "Toy shop". Medical old age problems on top of that. Poor old Studebaker sitting in the corner for now..
Just purchased a pickup for a new parts getter.. A 97 Dodge 1500 two wheeler. Low mile 3.9 V-6, plain interior Brite red southern body that has been in storage since 2006. Been lightly cuffed in the right front. But enuff that it blew air bag. Also bought a Michigan, RUFF, 96 red 4-wheeler, delux interior, truck for parts. Just exchange interior, good panels/air bag and no paint! Less than $1500.00 for the pair, delivered to the Toy shop...
Started pulling parts off the donor yesterday. Going to pull the cab and box. Sell the 360 and running gear as a rolling unit. Michigan rust is such a BI... to work with.. Seats/bolts rusted to cab floor, floor rusted to/thru the frame. Frame is just plain rusted thru.. Trusty plasma cutter will have it in managable pieces by tomorrow evening.
Photos tomorrow maybe?

His is going in a motorcycle remember. This motor he got is a whopping 40 hp! It's the hotrod with 11to1 compression. It will have the twin carbs.

I started putting in stakes today for the new footings.
The whole pit is not cleared yet but it feels good to move forward slightly after two major delays.

This is what this motor is.
They used this thing many different ways, check out some of them!
What a neat little motor that is!

Remember that Crosley motor I told you about a while ago with the interesting story of the dude from eBay delivering it? Well my brother picked it up today and he went over it finding all kinds of damage that I hadn't seen. Like the intake where the guy broke the bolts off in the intake and pried the carbs apart breaking them.
But while my brother is looking at it it struck him how clean it was, inside, not one spec of corrosion in the water jackets, guys the friggin thing is NOS! The motor is NOS from around 1953, it was a perfect, complete to generator and starter NOS motor, never having been ran! And that jerk screwed it all up, he even broke a fin off the valve cover. But what a shame, luckily the internals are untouched. But he has to pull it apart over fear that the jerk poured something inside or something, who knows.
What a shame!

While Nick was out getting a burger with a friend I spent a couple minutes and straightened up the grill on the Falcon. He was concerned with it and looking for a new one and I spent just a few minutes and pushed and pulled (it's aluminum and bends very easy) and removed the head light rings to bend it up to meet them and even hammered and dollied out a dent. It's not perfect but a thousand times better.
Yeah I should have done it with him but there are plenty other things to learn on. He is concerned with the mouldings, yeah Nick, we can fix those.

Didn't get anything done but a great meal out with my son. This is a cute little town near us and I parked Marge in the special high performance car parking lot.

It's also out of place. I live in a heritage zone and my new house will blend into the neighborhood nicely.
I wouldn't want to see any of the older houses in my hood destroyed. They really look nice.
