More Great Weather, But…

Temps in the high 50s-low 60s on Saturday and Sunday, plenty of sunshine on Saturday (things did a bit cloudly later on Sunday), yet another mid-winter opportunity to get the LBC out, right?  Well, not so fast…

Seems the alternator in the HSD gave up the ghost about a week ago.  The replacement arrived from Victoria British on Thursday and Friday night my son and I pulled the old alternator…and immediately ran into ye proverbial brick wall: try as we might, we couldn’t loosen the nut holding the pulley and alternator fan.  Went to a local auto parts store yesterday, managed to get the nut loosened, now all we have to do is install the pulley and fan, the mounting brackets and put it back in.

Ah, but with everything else that occurred over the weekend or needed our attention, that installation will have to wait until next weekend.  Sigh…
