    Well, got it all buttoned up.....or so I thought! So all new belts filled the radiator back up and off I go. About 80 miles in I remember that I did not tighten the pulley shaft bolts... Oh boy all that work! So I pull over and luckily they are still there with one of them just barely having a thread left in it. Tightened it up and now I'm off again. Made it to Lincoln Nebraska and I'm eating at cracker barrel and probably gonna hang it up for the night....im beat.

    Thanks for all the help guys!

    More on my adventure tomorrow.....

    Actually, the belt it called for was a 51". I tried a 53,54 and a 55....thank God for Farm Supply....I tried the 53 first and I tightened the pulley all the way up, but it wasn't tight enough. So I had to walk back again and get the only one I didn't get before, the 52".....walla it didn't get pinched when tightening it and got as tight as I wanted it to get. So the 52 is the way to go!https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...6742ce98d7.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...700a7d1614.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...a14baf7119.jpg

    NVFireFighter if you have another breakdown on the the road, start a new HELP thread. You were not that far away from several folks on here that could have assisted. The farther west the fewer of us there are but it never hurts to put a shout out! Hopefully that is you last malfunction, safe travels!

    Thanks you for the tip. I hope no more breakdowns!

    Great road trip other than the breakdown......https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...889a2256ff.jpg
