Bah! More Mechanical Difficulties................

Worked the night shift this weekend and got a little surprise when I started TheLittleBlueTruck to go home. The Battery warning light was on.
Hmmm? That's new.
Checked the amp-meter and it's only about halfway to where it ought to be. Not good.
Revved the motor a bit to see if that would make a difference.
Nope.

Well shit. Turned off everything electrical that I could and headed for home. In a hurry.
About halfway home the lights were getting dim and as it was still dark out I just kept on going. I flipped the brights on to test and they weren't any better so I just went back to low beam and drove faster.
In the dark.
All I could think of was I was not gonna see the deer coming before I hit it. Got lucky on that one. I'm beginning to think they are attracted to the headlights.

Did make it home and it died as I pulled in. Close.
So today is repair day.

Damn I hate working on cars anymore.

Gratuitous Picture for a Tuesday-

This is just friggin' weird.
