Man.... Changing a fan belt in the dark on I-76 was fun! I noticed that semis would move over to the left lane, but cars & trucks nope......
Note to self, carry a flashlight in my toolkit. Also add a new fan belt to the tool kit too!
*Suggestion to GM for future Corvair production, please make it so I don't need to take out my air filter assembly & spare tire to be able to change my belt. (probably could have done it with it but.....)
Anyway overall not bad & took about 10 minutes.
I heard a pop & then noticed the temp light & pulled over immediately! So hopefully no harm to the engine.
Takeway from this, carry a toolkit, spare fan belt, & a flashlight!!!!!

Yes to carrying a toolkit, spare fan belt, & a flashlight at all times in an older car. SEVERAL lights (also reflectors), they are cheap these days. Even those Harbor Freight freebie\ lights are useful in an emergency. I just bought this cordless rechargeable work light for $10 at WM. Super bright and useful, would be a great thing to have in the car. Hanging hook and several magnets to hold in place. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hyper-Tough- ... /254964491
I just got the emergency flashers working on my '67. They never worked in the 40 years I've owned the car.
