Default Help emergency!!! TB broke

As the title say my TB broke and the tensioner loosened up. I'm being towed to the Midas in Rutland, VT the address is
207 US-4 Rutland, VT 05701

If anyone is on there way to the fest and can help me I'd be extremely greatful. I'm pretty sure a Midas won't have the ALH tools. My cell is 815.210.8790 text friendly because I'm wait on a tow call.

Thanks Adam

Not sure what can be done for you, your head needs to be pulled and sent out for refurbishing.

I don't know that it's a "good idea" but I can tow you from where you are at to TDIFest tomorrow if you want to pay for the rental of a uHaul tow trailer, I have a hitch and lighting on my Golf.

I probably need my head examined, but.....

I have a head kit on the shelf. Ditto all parts that go with it. Just gotta put in trunk, and pack specialized toolbox.

This would have to be a one-day hero project. I can do the high stuff, but need a low man for underneath stuff. Paved, or preferably concrete spot to work where we can make a short-term mess. Gravel will not do. Minimum of one set of skilled hands ready for a big day Saturday. Eric IS NOT coming, I'm solo this trip.

Someone else would have to bring us:
1) a good floor jack and a set of 2 ton jack stands. I WILL NOT do this on an engine support that is in the way.
2) Creeper would be nice.
3) Drain pans for oil and coolant.
4) Containers for used fluids, and haul them away

I would have to know something by 0700 to know to pack parts. I leave Kentucky 0800.

Truthfully, probably better at Herm's or elsewhere. I would have to have $$$ for my parts prior to leaving Maine. Can't take a paypal hit on this much money. Price is whatever Frank charges for this complete solution kit.

You could probably talk someone into grabbing the head for you and bringing it to the fest...

I'm leaving North Carolina in about an hour, still have 10 hour drive to get to you if you want me to tow you. Not sure if it is or isn't legal, but you would have to ride in your car while being towed or catch a ride with someone else, I'm stacked to the roof with stuff for tdifest

I was planning to help volunteer with preperations for the fest on Friday, but I could help out with the car instead. I've got a lot of tools, don't have a triple square set though

You aren't 100% on the way, if you want me to come get you thats fine, just give me let me know by this afternoon

I just spoke with Adam. I'm getting the tow dolly hooked up and prepped.
Adam's going to call Herm to see what other options might be possible for this week/ weekend.

The belt is not broken, but a loss of power on hills followed by the motor ceasing operating doesn't bode well. The loss of belt tension may have stripped belt teeth and been just as bad as the belt breaking completely.

Sounds as if there might be the opportunity at the Fest for a seminar on cylinder head replacement...

Between Paramedick and the other Gurus who will be in in attendance, RedDragon should be in good hands...
