Default !@%%#$^**(

I am replacing the belt, tensioner, and idler pulley. Everything is going well almost too well. Before I get started I kinda read up on what I will need and I plan for what I need. I cannot get a good look at what kind of bolt is holding the tensioner on, which could be one of three. Two are regular bolts and the third is a wonderful star tool. Of course I get down to the last part and it is the star tool... I cannot break the one trip to the parts store jinx.

I figured it out it was a T50.

The only way to make my title any clearer would have put the obscenities I was saying when I came across this problem.

Well then you posted in the wrong section Dr. Souss. Vent thread is in the off topic section. This is General Ranger Discussion, not frustration discussion.

LOL! No need to apologize, it's a common thing.
