Looks like middle to late 70's!
Turntables like this often only come on when the phono switch is selected. However those rotating switches often become worn or dirty and so won't make contact. A good clean with Servisol video 40 or switch cleaner (which doesn't attack plastics) inside the unit, should get it working again.

How much money is a old Crosley radio worth model#7161

Better double check that model number. I can't find it anywhere. If it's a recent "retro", it's just junk. Generally, old radios vary widely in value depending on their year of manufacture, condition, styling, features, and rarity. Crosleys didn't tend to have much going for them other than cheap but there were some exceptions.

Need a needle for a spirit of st louis turntable cd cassette player. do not know what kinnd or model to buy

Do you have the old needle?

If so, you can match them up to charts provided by dealers.
If not, try to find out the make / model of the turntable chassis.
Providing some close up photos that would be a big help.

I can't see anyone still making a 40 year old turntable arm. You could get a replacement cartridge for it. You might need either a ceramic or magnetic one, depending on the pre-amp of the RCA.

What you need is one of each of the RCA Y-adaptors like at the above links. Radio shack probably has non-gold cheaper ones in the store. on the one that is radio shack model #42-2608 hook the two 'female' connectors to your turntable's red n white RCA outputs. then take the radio shack model 42-2609 and hook the two 'male' connectors to your serato. finally connect the two Y-adaptors together in the middle! This merges both channel but keeps them both equally going into your serato so that no actual musical info is lost.

Technics multiple play spindle wearing out it seems.

Need the model number. Technics released over 100 turntables between 1970-1990 - so a model number would help us in determining what you need.

How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2

Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.
