For Want of a Bolt…

Yes, the HSD is still in the garage.   However, what with the incredible increase in the temperature (compared to the past two weekends) and the sunny skies, one of my sons and I spent the better part of the afternoon finishing up the new alternator…and then ran into a work stoppage.   The bolt we had for fastening the adjusting arm didn’t fit.   Checked the shop manual, made three trips to Ace, still don’t have the right size and the sun’s gone down.

Soooo, we’ll have to see if I can get the alternator properly installed and the car running again next Saturday, in advance of SLTOA’s annual Polar Bear Run.   And yes, I’m monitoring the weather…right now it looks pretty iffy, but hopefully we can pull it off.

More to follow…
