I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

The belt on my bug broke last week and I tried to replace it but can't get the dang thing on. I watched you tube (expert advise) on how to change it but my belt doesn't seem to reach as far as they do on the video. I had to get the belt from Advance Auto Parts and it was suppose to fit a '74 bug. Is there a trick to it or is the belt too small. I almost lost my cool trying to get it right. Thanks for any advice that anyone can give.

    You have to take the pully on the generator apart to put the belt on, with the outer part of the pully off, put the belt between it and the other half of the pully, then tighen it up with the engine & pully turning, with the right size belt it should be tight, if it's to loose take it back apart and remove some of the shims and put them on the outside of the front half of the pully and tighen it up again. It's hard to do if you have never seen it done before.

      This only works with a loose belt, and is very dangerous. Like Wiley said, don't get the screwdriver stuck in your head. Hands around moving parts = missing fingers.
