Daylights help for that - but you still can't see the blooming
idiots from behind. Intelligent people who can't figure out that if
they can't read their speedometer, people can't see their behinds
either - - - - -
yes, in TX at least. They even have a limited number of 85 MPH speed
The East Coast is getting a *little* better with about 50% of the states
having 70 or 75 MPH speed limits which are fairly reasonable for the
denser population, older roads, etc. but there are still a lot of places
where you can't drive over 65 legally and 55 sadly still exists as a
default urban Interstate speed limit, even when it's not even close to
being appropriate, or the speed at which people actually drive.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Heck we have morons who speed through Malfunction Junction at 85mph
where two interstate and two older highways intersect in downtown
Birmingham, AL. o_O
Make and model of car? I had a '96 Bonneville SSEi where you had to take
a motor mount off since the belt went around it. They were thoughtful
enough to provide an access door in the wheel well, all you had to do
was first take off the wheel. Not something I would have ever done on
the side of the road.
I had something like this, round, about 30 years ago. I had it for 20
years, until it turned brittle and broke when I bent it. Never used
it but it was good to have.
Absolutly. I drove 10 or 15 miles once with, I guess, no fan belt.
I drove a mile or two or four or whatever until the temp guage started
to climb too high. Then stopped and waited 10 or 15 minutes until the
gauge went down. Do that as many times as you need to.
Even on a summer day one can do this. It just takes a lot longer.
OTOH, shouldn't run without oil pressure, or with the oil light on,
more than the time it takes to pull over.
Do you remember the GM Northstar engines now out of production which
were designed to switch into limp home mode upon loss of coolant and
could be driven 100 miles in such a condition? ^_^

Actually I didn't know aabout that.
I heard the word Northstar, but knew almost nothing about it.
From 1980 cars onward for 21 years I drove 3 Chrystler LeBaron
convertibles. I would have rather driven GM cars but the Chevy
Cavailier was stripped down, and even the Pontiac Sunbird wasn't
fancy. I wanted a Buick Skylark convertible but never found one
second hand. Whereas the Lebaron was pretty fancy.
I used to have stock in GM too, but when they went bankrupt, it became
worthless. They're making a profit now but that doesn't benefit me.
I'm not holding a grudge. If they made a bigger or better convertible
than Ford and Chrysler, that's what I'd buy next time. but they better
start making it now, because I only buy used cars.
I broke a fan belt (long story) when it was -10F. By the time I got
to the exit and to the service station (maybe two miles) it was
boiling over. They wouldn't sell me a fan belt (the service part of
the business was closed - 1AM) but they did let me change put the
spare belt (long story), I was carrying, on under their lights.
Generations ago, people used nylon stockings.
I was a in a hardware, or maybe Harbor freight,
yesterday. they had a build your own A dimension V
belt, that was different links you could make
longer or shorter.
