      remove the valve cover
      and make sure oil was
      on all lobes of the cam
      and the forward gears
      should get a good dose
      to run down to the
      bottom. I would then
      turn it over by hand,
      then try the elect
      starter to build
      pressure...NOT to
      start. Specific the
      Crosley is the water
      pump...make sure the
      jack shaft from the
      genny fully turns
      easily the the pump.....

      ========================
      All great advice. I
      would just add that if
      the tires are a
      concern, I can
      recommend Carlisle Tire
      and Rubber's USA Trail
      in 5:30x12, which is
      close to original
      appearance. Coker Tire
      also sells a wide-
      whitewall 5:30x12.

      Good luck, Norman, and
      congratulations on
      saving those great
      cars. You'll love them.
      Keep us all posted on
      your progress, please.

      would like to buy one
      of these and put it on
      the road. Other than
      the basics, ie, oil
      change, clean the fuel
      tank, lines etc,
      anything specific to a
      Crosley I should know?
      One is a 48 and the
      other is a 50 and both
      were on the road when
      stored. Any help would
      be great. Thanks.
