I was listening to Click & Clack "The Car Guys" this morn and someone
with a slipping fan belt was told to put 'Comet' on the belt by a
friend. It worked for him (the abrasive removes the glaze). I actually
found some 'Comet' and poured it on the 2 belts I could see.
Sonnofabitch started after some cranking, and using gas pedal
techniques that used to work with flooded carbs!
I took it for a ride around the neighborhood twice. Every dashboard
light was on except the water and oil. The only one that concerned me
was the battery light. I wonder if the alt is ded. I set up the
trickle charger again. Does the light come on when the batt is low
(don't think so) or if the battery is not being charged? I could
actually go sailing again, but it's going to be in the freakin' 90's
for the next few days.
