  1. Too may other restoration projects. and no time to have a body commissioned, but correct copy of 1918 dated RAF plans for Tender or AeroBody come with the car - that makes a big difference to a build. Correct diff with crown wheel and pinion and half-shaft- those are very hard-to-find parts and correct steering column all with Crossley numbers. Needs a pair of lower elliptical springs making, complete patterns and dimensions taken from the Tender at RAF museum and copying the one top semi-ellipitical spring which comes with the car. A rare find and the engine/gear box unchecked.
  2. 1916 WW1 Crossley RFC 20/25 Rolling Chassis Extremely rare WW1 Crossley RFC rolling chassis; one of perhaps 10 surviving; great project with huge potential for the military WW1 enthusiast; find another! Documentation includes a V5C; Crossley Register correspondence; technical drawings of the engine and gearbox etc and workshop manuals two AO size copies of official RFC 1918 plans for the Crossley tender body and the aerobody; detailed drawings of the rear suspension. https://www.brightwells.com/timed-sale/5374/lot/644597 Brightwells Auction of 9th September, Lot 15 Crossley
  3. Duson hi On further checking there is virtually nothing on this later lorry engine that is any use to me as spares for my car, the manifolds are completely different as the carburettor is on the same side as the exhaust due to the bores being bigger (5300 cc) leaving no room for the inlet tracts to go between the bores, the crankcase may be cast iron and not aluminium like mine, the crankshaft however could possibly be the same as the connecting rods as the stroke was the same.The clutch is a plate type so the flywheel is also different, my car has a cone clutch.Even the cylinder heads would not have fitted as Crossley had dispensed with the rubber water jacket seals which were fitted to my car and used the modern type gasket which seals both water and combustion chambers. Thank you for thinking of me, greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi Duson, Thanks for the headsup on this WW2 Crossley 4 WD truck There might be a few external engine parts. But this is a significantly bored out version of my engine, it does however have the added benefit of removable heads. Will call the seller and plan to take a look, one never knows. The engine and perhaps the gearbox might be the only useful bits, unsure if he will split them, as he wants to sell everything. Best Simon
  5. Good morning, I am new to the forum, and based near Watford and a serial Crossley car fan and having been looking for an RFC tender for a number of years. Given the 1000's made very few have survived in any form, the scrappage rate must have been enormous I purchased this vehicle recently and plan to strip it down to a bare chassis, but before getting into the restoration I am looking for certain key parts. I am fortunate to be located close to the RAF museum in Hendon where they have a complete fully working tender and are very helpful indeed Best Simon
  6. I am looking for parts for a Crossley RFC tender This has the 4 cylinder engine arranged in two banks with a cubic capacity of 4600 cc.. This engine was used in various forms well into the late 1930's and the BGT1 also known as the 40/50 HP Crossley used a 25/30 chassis suitably stiffened. Crossley also produced the the IGA1 and IGL using same chassis and mechanical components. I am looking for a spare engine to rebuild or parts to build one up if anybody has one they would be willing to sell. This engine in later form has both inlet and exhaust manifolds on one side of the block, and the water rail is different. But this doesn't matter. Also looking for a complete steering column, picture below of what I looking for A differential or the gears from inside it (picture shown of diff casing and prop-shaft) and also torque tube inner impulse shaft with its gear and a pair of rear leaf springs.
