I disassembled the pump and repaired the start contacts, cleaning the dirt and burned surface with a diamond file, creating a like new silver contact surface. I slightly bent the contact arm t increase the tension on the contact and re-assembled the pump. Once bolted in place and the hoses were hooked up again, I flipped the switch and it took off like a new motor. One job down…the trailer lighting next.
The installation of the wiring connections and license plate was accomplished fairly easy and once they were tested and working properly, I parked the trailer on the old concrete pad where it was during the fire…only now, it is street ready again. After going to Papa Jack’s for a pizza dinner, we returned and I rested a bit, watched Vick finish up some artwork and packing and then went to the barn to install another new window next to the alpaca stall.
Once that was finished, we put the animals away, loaded all of Vick’s artwork into the car and was ready to quit for the day. We would meet Lois at 7:30 Saturday morning to head for Middleburg.
