I thought you two would appreciate this...

One of my wife's good friends called today. She said that her brand new Honda Civic had broken down. The damn alternator pully seized! They are not sure if it is covered under warranty. She was not happy.

Discuss amongst yourselves.:D

Probably a recall that didn't get fixed ahead of time.;)

My mom had an 89 Caddy that used to eat alternators for breakfast. Her mechanic loved that car.

Possibly. He may have felt too comfortable with us as repeat customers. It was always my mom's car. My dad had an 85 El Dorado that ran like a top. Fun car, too.

4 Wheel disc brakes too I'd guess. Probably had rear e-brake issues...

No idea. All I remember is a 5.0 V8 and a very short wheel base. Lots of get up.

/ya know, now that you mention it, you did have to push those brakes practicaly throug the floor. Hmm.

Anyone else who is going to Beaus weekend get together please be responsible and PM him your intentions so he knows just how much beer to provide.

If the folks in your hometown are anything like the vultures here, you'd better be open and ready for business by 6 AM.

VERY, VERY poorly designed caliper setup. Although simple, not ideal. Ironically many car builders of today use them on rear axles to gain the added benefit of an ebrake on hotrods. Again, simple but not ideal.

Beau, I've seen some of the real nice stuff you have sold. Take a pic of what you have, and perhaps make some sales here too. Just a suggestion if we aren't really invited to the All u can eat buffet....
