Ha! Teach you not to listen to strangers. You forgot that my MGA did
the same thing somewhere along the Alaska trip (can't remember just
where). Pull the hand brake on hard, and put the tranny in 4th gear so
you can't turn the engine. Now put a heavy thumb down on the fan belt
between the gen pulley and the H2O pulley to snug the belt, and tighten
the nut on the gen shaft. POC. 3-Minute job.
