Didn't Crosley only come as OHV?[/quote
Yes they were overhead valve. Interesting fact is the 46-49 engine blocks were copper grazed sheet metal.They claimed the uniform thickness prevented hot spots. The Later blocks were cast iron. I once saw a cub cadet with a Crosley engine and that little guy purred. The first Crosley had a wakashaw air cooled engine.

Were Ford Anglias common in America? It seems an odd choice.

I would not say they were common. But they were around. The latest one I ever saw was a 1955.
American compacts like Nash, Henry J, WIllys Areoflow, etc were more common.

Older Chrysler engine (30-40's) had a bolt on gov that looks a little likeyour water pump. Maybe find one of those and get a gov on it?

I had tossed that idea around of using a belt drive gov., and Ford used hoof govs. in some of their industrial engines too.

 

I did pickup another carb for it, and will clean it this weekend to see how it reacts to that, and I'm almost sure gearing it down will help alot. Just needs alot of tweeking, but hey....isn't that the fun of it?? :thumbs:

Very cool facts, who would-a thunk??

Believe it, or not. I just scored a carb off FeeBay, and I could not be happier to have it. Parts for these seem to be a bugger to snap up here in the states, and it seems that I can get parts from overseas, but who wants to mess with that. Hopefully I wont need any, but you are right, they don't seem very common.

Sorry, I haven't kept updates up to par as I think my PC is on its way south, so I will do this with my phone. Typing on one of these is a pain, so I'm not going into detail until I get the PC sorted.

Did some carb work, and runs great! Some pics of tearing down the fan pulley, and pics of my fabbed brackets to make the hood tilt. It had to come off anyway. Still working on it , and maybe have the hood done by the weekend??

I will give a better update once my PC is fixed...

I worked on it a little yesterday trying to just get it back together for the Garden Tractor daze show this weekend. I put new bearings in the fan pulley, aged my hood tilt brackets, welded in chains for hood stops, welded in hood attachment bolts, and added a klaxon 8-c motor driven horn.

The green strap was for mock-up on the hood.

I still need to fasten the fuel tank, and reseal the fuel pump which will be today's project. This way I can at least use it this weekend. Here's a cuppo pics of yesterday's accomplishment, and I'll post more pics of what I get done later today.

Dig the horn. I've done similar things to add some "patina" to the metal. I also add a clear coat. On certain rides it's just the right look, IMO. The guys on Fast N Loud use that technique alot.

 

What's in the future?

Thank you, I like the horn too!

To age the brackets I just used left over pickle juice. The vinegar eats right in, then leave it outside for 2-3 days. Now I have to do the bolts, if I get time??!

The yellow was already popping out in some spots, so I thought to run with it a little and see how it all tied together. I may clear it down the road???

So far my future plans are to fab a lift boom, and put it on the back with hydros. I'm thinking an upper N lower ram outta do it. Gotta make use of that hydro pump somehow!! Unless something comes up in the meantime, but that's down the road for now. :)

I'll post another video tonight or in the morning, stay tuned......
