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!

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.

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.

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?

Good to see you are still at it, Bob..

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...

crosley hot-shot

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.

4 finished hot rods in the garage and I needed a break. I'm sick of working on cars every day and needed to diversify, so a couple weeks ago Jennifer and I drove 250 miles South and bought the Capri 14.2 sailboat to replace our little 12' Puffer. the next day we drove 500+ miles North to Canada and bought the Surf Side camp trailer from Dave57210 to replace our tent and sleeping bags . I've been alternating between working on the two since our return, and finished replacing all the standing and running rigging this morning on the Capri. the trailer will take a bit longer, as it will be essentially gutted and rebuilt from the shell. more work that I had hoped for, but it will be a great little camp trailer when it's finished. it tows behind my Dodge 4x4 like it isn't even there (1400 lb), and can be towed behind the Vette, should the mood strike us.
It's awesome working on things that aren't covered in grease for a change

Russ

So far today, I watched the Nascar race and did some more yard cleanup.

Went out to dinner last night and found an "interesting" traffic jam. A guy had his (about 25 foot) boat come off his trailer, blocking 3 lanes of traffic.

Now to do the second coat of paint on my sundeck, and finish loading more junk into the utility trailer so I can get rid of that stuff on Tuesday (Monday - tomorrow - is a holiday around here, so I can't take the stuff anywhere until Tues.)

Still gotta cut up an old (1947) wooden canoe so I can haul THAT to landfill as well.

Maybe, by sometime in the fall, I can get my shop organized so I can get cars back into it and get back to doing stuff on the cars?
