Grayeagle Posted September 21, 2007 Share Posted September 21, 2007 Hiya;Started the Vette up Wednesday mornin to run some errands before work.. A/C inop ....'weird' I think.. just had it charged and it was icy cold the nite before.. ..they never just 'quit' all at once unless compressor clutch goes away or a belt breaks says I.Popped the hood today (after drivin it back an forth to work Wed an Thu.. including 75mph freeway travelin.Hmm ..belts still there .. but ..hey look ..it's ridin on the rear *edge* of the crank pulley!!The *crank* pulley is out far enough that it's touchin the steering rack an pinion. (that light ticking I had heard that morning is explained.. ..it went away after a moment so I disregarded it of course,thinkin it might be a lifter or accessory bearing that could be looked at later)The center bolt is still there. It doesn't seem to be 'loose' ie: I can't turn it by hand or wobble.Ima park it till payday looks like .. it's gonna need a tow truck to where ever fixes it.. ..I dont want to take any chance that she comes apart and tears up alla stuff on the front of the motor.It *looks* like having to drop the steering rack to get a socket on the bolt to run it back in....gotta take the bolt off first to put some thread-lock on it, and thread lock on steering rack bolts etc.if anything is wrong with the damper of course that will need replaced also.-sheesh-I need some help .. AZPS handle this kinda stuff or ?-Frank -sigh- ..there is no way I am going to take it to a stealership.I just know they'll piss me off and want 3 grand and 2 weeks of labor.. grrr.
