    Default Christine does it again!

    Yes I have officially named my CX "Christine".
    For all of you that have seen the 1980's Horror movie of the same name you will understand the connotations! Especially after she tried to kill us on the way home from Ballarat by destroying the pump drive shaft leaving us with no brakes!
    This time it is relatively minor but she has left me in need of a Starter Motor mounting bolt. I have included pictures of the offending item. I wondered why there was alternator belt slippage each time I started the engine a view from underneath revealed a loose tensioning bracket. I began to tighten the offending nut but turn it as I might it would not tighten. Pictures reveal the reason.
    If anyone has one of this bolts I would really appreciate it if it could be spared!
    BTW "«hristine" is a 1978 CX 2400 C-Matic!
