Few other jobs in this week.
The tangled mess of black spaghetti is what's left of a fan belt in a Mazda Tribute.
Removed and cleaned the inlet manifold and egr valve on a Toyota Hiace diesel engine, the carbon build up greatly reduces the amount of air that can flow through to the engine, reducing power. And a new engine going into a Commodore.

Day 1 isolation joke.

A guy goes to the doctor complaining about not feeling right "back there".
The doctor tells him to pull down his pants and bend over. He grabs a torch and, with his thumb and forefinger, spreads the guys cheeks.
The doc is surprised to see a 20 dollar note in there. He pulls it out and looks again. He pulls out a 50 dollar note, then another 20, a 100, another 50. This continues for about half an hour.
Finally he says there's nothing else.
The doctor starts counting the money while the gut pulls up his pants.
"One thousand seven hundred and ninety dollars "
"That sounds about right" the guy says, " I wasn't feeling two grand!"

Unfortunately we will be closed for the next 6 days .
Thank you all for your understanding.
Stay safe .

Blinker fluid level.

Had a Triton in for a service, it had some issues with it's tail lights. A closer inspection showed that the blinker fluid was getting low, preventing the globe from working properly. 🤔
