I set it up so we wouldn't get each other to avoid potential hostility and lame gifts.

I think the car is fixed. Took the fan off and was finally able to access the pulleys. A brief but bountiful call with Kalim helped me straighten some things out. Took the belts off and ran to the 24hr autozone. Got the belts on and the fan threaded but not tightened. Tomorrow I just need to find a wrench to get the fan tightened and put the air box back on.

BIG shout out to Matt for coming over to help me. Would never have got it done without him

What would be in that kit? A brush? A hedge trimmer? A handheld lawn mower?

What's the best way to tighten the fan clutch? does it have to be really tight since it's reverse threaded?

It has the traffic and the hippies, but it's not that bad.

Albee showed it to me. I didn't know we had it. If I needed parts at three in the morning I used to have to go to Compton or East LA
