Installed Hellwig helper springs to stiffen the ride a bit and raise the rear an inch.
Took off the left rear tire and had a nail removed and repaired.
Removed the radiator and had a small leak fixed.
The fan belt (actually the fan is electric and belt only connects the crankshaft pulley to the water pump and alternator) decided to shred itself and wrap a bit around the alternator pulley. I ended up removing the belt tension pulley, as it was redundant and weighs about 2 pounds. I found the shorter the belt, the cheaper it is.
On one of my exploration jags around central Florida on an unpaved country road I heard a strange noise. Stopping to check it out, I found the clutch cable was intermittently dipping into the dirt. I had to cut a piece of wire from license plate light to tie it up to get it up and not get damaged.

So I have been having fun driving and playing McGiver.
