I've seen bits and pieces of info about Crosleys which had Midget or Morris Transmissions fit behind them. Several successful Crosley racers ran this combination. has anyone got any info.on the combination? I cant figure out if they may of used the metal end plate off an 'A' series motor-or which flywheel /clutch is utilized. Some post said the crosley tranny shaft mates to the MG specs. if there is anyone out there who can provide a outline of the procedure it would be most appreciated. Thanks a bunch to any and all that may be aware of the swap.

Suppose it's possible, but at 26 HP, why. I could see fitting a A series into a Crosley- some of the cars are cute- for a resto-mod. Most were likely tube framed V8 dragsters of the 50-60s. Wikipedia gives some history

A 1275 with a 4 spd would make a Crosley pretty peppy! By the time you build an adapter plate for a 4spd and work on the Crosley body as needed you could put in a 1275 with the tranny and prob come out cheaper.
