    Rene is currently in Fort Steel, Wyoming and the pivot bolt to his alternator sheared off. The spacer fell out and it is lost. He jerry rigged it together and is still driving, but he needs these parts before the temporary repair gives out.

    If you can help, He needs the pivot bolt and spacer, plus a spare alternator belt (The way he has it rigged, the current belt is wearing on it's side and probably won't last too long). Trusty is a 1981 K5.

    As of 6:30pm PST, Rene was in Wyoming, on I-80 East, and will be passing thru Rock Creek, Evanston, Ogden, then Brigham City.

    If you or anyone can scrounge up these parts and get them to him, that would be the awesome.

    Rene will be calling me every couple of hours while I try to get him help. I'm in California or I'd do it myself.

    If you can help with a solution, then send me a PM with your phone number and I will call you.

    Thanks for the help.

    PS. Other than this, he's do'in great!!

    I talked with Twiztid (Eric) and he is about an hour away. He has the bolt and is looking for the spacer. He may have to make one out of some tubing.

    I talked to Rene again and he did find an auto parts store and bought a belt, but struck out on the bolt and spacer. It was 5 minutes from closing.

    Rene will be calling me again in about 30 minutes (check the time of this post).

    Also, if anyone reading this post is close and can help, still send me a PM, so if something doesn't work out, I can call you quickly. Thanks.

    I am 1 hour west of Rock Springs, and only 2 miles off the interstate.

    just sent gandolf a pm.

    I have an 89, and have offered to let him take the parts off mine if they will fit. I can prelace them tomorrow.

    I broke my hand yesterday so I can't take the parts off.

    I'd also like to fill him up on soda and munchies...

    I believe this is Jeff (solowookie) and Twiztid's area. Considering I have those parts in my garage minus the belt I wish I was closer.

    Re: Rene Needs Help - Wyoming/Utah Area

    hmm if he runs i 80 to i 84 t to i 82 to i 90 then hits i 5 instead of i 84 to i 5 i think hell save time and then he'll go wiht in a 1/4 mile of my place and looks like is the faster route
    plus i can load him with food for the rest of the trip

    If you send a PM, try to stay off your phones. Both Rene and I are getting answering machines and busy signals. Thanks

    Re: Rene Needs Help - Wyoming/Utah Area

    Well, Rene has talked with Eric (Twiztid) and they are meeting up at a Chevron station near Eric's house. Rene seems confident the temporary repair will last the 3 1/2 to 4 hours it will take to get him there. It has been OK the last 100 or so miles. Rene is now in Wyoming, on I-80 West, with about 50 miles to go to Rock Springs.

    Thanks again Eric for your willingness to get out there and help Rene.

    Also thanks to Solowookie, IgK5 and Bandit for your offers of help.

    CK5 has once again proven it's value. No matter where you are, help is there if you ask for it. Pretty Cool!!

    Re: Rene Needs Help - Wyoming/Utah Area

    yea, typing does suc...

    the official story is I broke it working on my house...

    the real story is I got mad and hit a wall (trying to remodel it while I was mad LOL )... I feel like a complete idiot! [​IMG]

    I am usally a very level headed person, and I've never come even close to getting that mad before. [​IMG]

    actually the thing that really makes me sad is I won't be able to do my lift now. I'm gonna have to hire it done [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yea, that is bad Solo. Don't feel bad though. I'll be the first person to admit that when I get mad I hit stuff, throw things and yell alot. I figure I can either do that or go outside and kick someones ass up and down the street, so I choose the prior. lol

    Yea, you just reminded me. I got a dash from a junkyard Blazer that was in really good shape. Put it in and then a few weeks later the engine died and some other crap happened. I got mad and hit the dash and put a crack in it. I know its stupid, but I can't help it. Something my girlfriend definitely doesn't understand. Part of being a guy I guess...[​IMG]
