Help in San Antonio

Good afternoon,
Is there anyone in the San Antonio area willing to lend me a fan pulley removal tool? I've tried to purchase one here and on other resources on-line but they are on back order and I would like to get back on the road as soon as possible. If anyone near has one for sale for a reasonable price I'd consider purchasing it too.

Thanks

Are you stuck? There are work arounds for the spanner tool.

I did get the car home. Is there a link to the work arounds? I'm open to suggestions.

Archtech, if I can't borrow one in town I'll send you a message to get some more info from you. From what I can tell the one I need has one peg and looks like the tool used to adjust coilovers. Coincidently I was on my way home from Austin when the belt busted.

You learned a lesson the hard way. Never leave home in a air cooled 911 without a spare fan belt and the tools needed to change it. That way it will never fail again.

Also carry a spare DME, some spare fuses, tire plugs to get you to a tire shop. An air compressor that operates off of the battery and one more thing. An 18 inch piece of heavy duty string trimmer line. If the gas fill pull cable breaks or does not work for some reason, you can fish the line under the latch, pull back and get the flap to open with no damage to the fender or the flap.

If I am going on a real road trip out of state, I also carry a spare coil, and fuel pump. That is just likely overkill, but ya never know.

My car did not come with the tool kit the car is supposed to have. The factory tool kit has a spark plug wrench that is great, the fan belt tool, and a spare fan belt and a few basic tools.

Now get out there and drive that 911!

Fortunately I had a spare belt and was able to get it over the pulley without the tool. That was enough for me to limp home.
