I will be Fifty fucking years old at the end of this month and completely amazed I made it this far.I am tore up and have a fucked up back since I was twenty and arthritis everywhere, especially my fucking hands.
I spent three and a half hours yesterday morning, in the fucking rain, a half mile away from the Weasel Den on a service call.
Three and a half hours to change the belt on a Caterpillar engine on a Vacuum truck. Most of that was spent hanging over the radiator at maximum extension, trying to get the bolts out of a little drive line that comes off of the front of the crankshaft that drives a hydraulic pump.
It is a two man job getting that fucker back together. The water pump belt is a little bit bigger than a pie pan, so is the crank damper.After getting the new belt half way on, it was readily apparent some stupid sonofabitch at the parts store needed a good kick in the balls because it was too fucking short. I sent what was left of the old belt to him with the part number RIGHT ON IT!
No service truck, cheap assed Made in China tools and cussing like you have never heard in your entire life.
I had to take off a serpentine belt, the tensioner, as far as I could and do most of it by Braille.I couldn't see shit.
The fucking assholes put this dinky little belt in the worst place possible and even the tensioner pulley bolts were BEHIND and UNDERNEATH, the Serpentine belt pulley's.
Dirty fucking cocksucker asshole cunt lip motherfucking sonsabitch fuckhead engineers."It looks good on paper".
Put 'em in Hell, right next to Dick Fucking Cheney, taking apart and putting back together again every rotten fucking asshole thing they ever designed, in scorching heat one day and freezing rain the next.
Oh yeah, make sure they have that stupid fuck from NAPA right there too, handing them the wrong parts.
I won't even go into the part about the asshole operator, when the other truck showed up and worked just fine for a half an hour. I could see and hear it, when it quit working to his expectations and he came over throwing a fit and called me everything but white, threatened to call the boss, did call some other asshole and come to find out, when I threw down my tools and walked over there to look at it, he had a fucking big assed rock stuck in the pipe.
Not a good day.
I will deal with that motherfucker later.
By the way, Happy Birthday Nasty Girl.
