    @pat white I knew the belt needed replaced, was trying to work out some other odd ball issues I was having with the car first. Figured it would have held on in the mean time, but it didn't. Took a chance, went against my better judgment, and took an L this go around. So back to square one unfortunately, it can only get better from here!

    It happens to the best of us, long as you are ready to go through the motor and redo it correctly, shouldn't be too bad!

    Keep at it!

    @ThunderChild the entire car needs gone through front to back, top to bottom. It'll take time but I'll get her back to where she needs to be soon enough!
