#21
At Least I Know Such House Call Mechanics Exist .

But Not Around Here .  Scream1

I 'll Just Have to Wait for the AAA to Kick Back in and Call for Service .

Actually . . . Should be Able to do That Now . Current has Roadside Assistance . Give Them till Tomorrow to get the Change Over into the System .


Facepalm

Success #1 ! sort of

Got the Spare Out From Under the Rear .

What a Rusted Pile . A Narrow Tire Been Under There a While . Little Dry Rotted .

Not Sure it Would Get Me to Town and Back .

Time to Pull the Battery and Stuff it Into the Sedan for a Trip Into Town . Two Years Out of Date Plates .

Adventures Ahead !

Looks Like I 'm in the Market for a Proper Matched Rim and Tire . . .

Facepalm

So , Went to Loosen the Lug Nuts Prior to Repositioning the Jack to Lift the Wheel .

No Go .

Somebody Torqued These Lug Nuts way Above 100 Foot Lbs . I Stood My Entire 175 ish Pounds on the Lug Wrench and not a Budge .

Chatter Gun is at the Home Place and I Don 't Have a Big Enough Compressor Here Any Ways .

Time for Harbor Freight Electric Impact Wrench if a Longer Breaker Bar and Socket Doesn 't Get the Job Done .


Facepalm


Where 's My Star Wrench ?

Nope . . . No Fit . Teeniest Lugs I 've Ever Encountered .

No Pipe for a Cheater Bar for the Breaker Bar . . .

Good Lord Willing the Chatter Gun Will be Here Come Saturday at the Latest .

Better Stuff the Battery into the Sedan and Get the Pups Some Cookies at Least .
