Stranded in Wilkes Barre PA.

I had just fueled up at the Blue Ridge Truck stop at exit 155 off 81. When I started the truck I heard an awful screach from under the hood. It looks like the air conditioning compressor seized and ruined the serpentine belt.

The truck and trailer was towed to Falzone's, which is a huge towing company. They have some impressive rigs in the yard!

Hopefully I will be back on the road early tomorrow.

This is in the general section instead of kitchen sink since it is MV Agusta related. I have two bikes and a trailer load of parts.

I'm in Wilkes-Barre on business right now! Had I known, I would have taken you out to dinner last night. I'll be here through Friday. Call me if you're still here on Friday.

Randy's old.

I had the a/c compressor seize on my truck once--But when it did it shot molten metal through the entire a/c system...$1500 later...

Fortunately though, it had it's own belt, so i just cut it off with pruning shears and was on my way. Went without a/c for an entire AZ summer, blech

carl you cheap bastard....get a new/newer truck.....that thing is always breaking down on you ( it broke down when you came to see me in TN, wasnt it the same problem) .....I know you got tons of dough stashed away somewhere....your not doing your part to stimulate the economy.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

You're right it did. Power steering pulley that time.

I would love an F350 crew cab dually, with the King Ranch option package.

I refuse to spend $50,000 on a truck.
