She's alive, part deux
We knew the second that we started the engine for the first time in 4 years, that we would have to get rid of the vacuum pump. Without being attached to anything, they are VERY noisy. They were used for the brakes and for the vents in the heater system. Since we are using neither of those things, the pump was unnecessary. Now, there is more room to run the power steering lines without interfering with the inner fender too!
OH, and the initial start was without the serpentine belt because the alternator needed shimmed just a little bit for alignment. I worked on the alternator bracket while Brian worked on the vacuum pump. Productive day!
