Went out to the bike shed to just tinker. Started the window AC, compressor came on but fan didn't. Too hot to be out there without air so lets see if we can go for a quick fix.
Sounds like the fan is trying to start. Pull the cover and nudge the fan blade, its stuck, got a little give, not like its frozen so push a little harder. It breaks free and out come a cloud of wasps. Seems they built a nest that jammed up the fan. I can move pretty fast when encouraged by those nasty little buggers, made it back into the shed without getting stung and none got in there with me.
Fired it up an turned it on maximum cool. Called the wife and told her not to come out and visit, at least for a while. Couple of hours later, nice and cool in the shed, cleaned and waxed the LT. Wasps still hovering around the AC, probably wondering what happened with their happy home.
Left the AC running on low cool, probably will leave it like that for a couple of days, sort of encourage the survivors to find someplace else to build their condo.
LT is ready for the road. Did notice I am about ready for a new front tire, rear (Avon Storm) is showing some serious cupping at only 3K. Been running it at 48 PSI.
