[DMCForum] Re: diesel [was attn Martin G]


What does the alternator belt have to do with running the CAR? I dunno,
you're the diesel expert. You'd have to ask Bob why he cut the belt when
the pulley spun freely and he only had about 350 miles to go in his
ancient diesel Mercedes with no alternator and a dying battery. Maybe he
didn't know any better and figured "Well, if the alternator's seized up
I should cut the belt."

Different subject: I presume when you say "Z" you're referring to the
old Datsun sports car. I didn't know Datsun made diesel Zs. What year is
that car?
