Re: Going thru alternator belts???

You know, that sounds like a tool I bought from Harbor Freight. Came with two different cap screws (allen bolts) to hold the handle on, and I looked at them and said, okay, that ain't gonna work. And if I wanted a correct screw, they could ship one from China in about 2-3 months. Honest.

Or the mars lander that crashed a couple of years ago, supposedly one design group was using metric specs while the other used fractional? Why should we expect any better from Universal or Volvo. (sigh) Of course Westerbleak [sic] doesn't surprise me, ordering parts from the lowest bidder is what it is.

Jeez, really, none of these folks know how to spec a round peg to fit a round hole ?! That kind of qc problem is, frankly, frightening.
