tight enough the first time, the adjustment came loose on a trip. I
had to re-set the belt tension without the book in an Arby's parking
lot an hour north of Raleigh. I remember almost throwing my back
out to be sure that bolt wouldn't move again and the belt wouldn't
It didn't. And the noise didn't start for about three months. A
week later, all was right in the MG world.
The alternator did die, by the way, after I used the MG to jump
start my sister's car six months later. And after jumping about
nine others along the way...
Anyway, I normally do read, I'm a librarian by trade, so I know that
reading is A Good Thing. Sometimes, you just get stuck and have to
go for it.
