OT 20: every man for himself

M3 did go on a short drive, but my rebuilt power steering pump is still bad, so ordered a new one.

Going to fix a few other smaller issues as well.

They never go as planned indeed. Got enough room for the belt on that A/C pulley? I think so. There is more room than the picture lets on. If there winds up being an issue, then.... https://media1.giphy.com/media/3o6vY2d5BHuhaZTXFe/giphy.gif?cid=790b76111c03398b7d0e4dc1afd7a9dcc36be239d7bce40c&...

I ideally don't want a generator at all. We don't have gas at the house (yet) anyway. We need a roof soon-ish and we in theory want solar with a battery backup option at that time. In part for convenience during storms, in part for :derp: treehugger good feelings, in part for clean consistent power...

Yeah, we treated ourselves to :nice: new ones when we bought our house. They are out in the open in our kitchen due to old, small house things, so wifey understandably wanted nice looking ones.

Thanks. I've got to clean off the front of the engine, it's just caked on there. Hopefully it's from a valve cover leak, which was fixed before I got the car.
