#6870: But it's done

Ordered the wrong belt, had to take it back and exchange it, and of course the correct belt was $11 more...but once home with it, I got it put on, and tensioned correctly. Jeep starts and runs just like it ought to.

Not too bad considering I did it entirely by headlamp. No other lights. That little Ray-o-Vac LED headlamp I bought myself in December of 2017 really has helped me get some things done.

...looking at the service log, I've only just realized it's been a year since I last changed the oil in the Jeep. No, it can't have been that long--I just forgot to note it, is all. Right? Right??

I'm not going to pore over the blog posts to see when I might have done it, though.

Anyway, fixing the Jeep consumed the entirety of my evening. I need to go to bed, and before I can do that I need to clean the cat box and get a shower, because both of us are perilously stinky.

Here's hoping tomorrow is easier.
