It happened last night after a short trip to the car wash. As I was
only 400 yards from the driveway, I heard a ssshhhrrrrrrrrrrsss, the
car ran smooth, the generator light had also come on. I stopped and
backed up as I thought surely something had fallen off the back of our
car, nothing in sight.

I pulled into the garage, raised the hood and to my surprise, the
generator pulley had exploded. I quickly gave the engine compartment
a once and twice over for any damage, all seemed well.

I pulled the generator, removed the pulley part and cleaned the thing.
I really had to think the options out on where I could get a
replacement before the swim in this weekend, the TR, no, Nick, no,
Gordon and have it shipped o/n to the swim in, no, Wayne's friend Tom,
yes. Amphi friends make it happen.

Rest assured, we will have a spare in the future.

I have to question why the pulley was made out of plastic, it just
doesn't seem all that stable, and we have proof.

Fun, Fun, Fun,
