Don’t need to worry about that wiper recall.

She did still have full coverage on it. Edmunds values at ~$8k so hopefully it’ll be something close to that.



Stiff and sore, no airbags

She was turning left from 251 to 96 in Victor and an 85 year old Florida man didn’t stop for his red.

appears that this was an extremely stubborn bleed for some reason.

I got frustrated enough with it that I threw starting fluid at it and it fired. There were a few cans of starting fluid in the trunk, so I'm not going to think I did anything worse to it than what the previous owner already did...
I loosened injection lines at the injectors and got lots of foam.

I fired it a couple times on ether with the lines loose, tightened them up, and it fired and runs. restarted without issue after shutdown. Hopefully it'll cold start too.

Time for coolant and accessory belt and intake and to GTFO the lift.
Does have a fuel leak at #4 injector, not sure where but did dry off to check, and that is now wet.

Alternator needs replacement too. Got belt off the remains of its pulley and its crunchy as hell.

Booo

rockauto confirms 1.8t alt crosses over, in spite of different mounting.

lifts are tied up, really don't feel like doing that on the floor though.
I need to do better!

New cooling fan bearing here. Couldn’t get old to budge at all out of mount. Can’t see any clips. Out of small tank propane to heat and expand. I really need to get a press

And like another hour to finish mowing the hills where Mowzer can’t handle the gang. Including removing the gang and fueling.

Definitely only a temporary solution.

2hr mowing and mowzer is out of gas. Lawn nearly done with gang mower setup on it.

Mowzer is working hard to not be pushed around by the gang mower. But absolutely does cut time in half if I have to cut with it, compared to almost no time savings going slower with the Jacobsen.

Got some 37* JIC plugs and caps yesterday and plugged up the motor. I suspect the motor is bad, it’s stiff to turn one way and  not too difficult to turn the other way using the 8” pulley. So probably will throw a motor at it, and depending how much that hurt$, maybe still get the hydraulic tester and set the relief valve to spec or a smidge tighter and maybe get it cutting much better. I hope?
