the van. found that the water in the reservoir tank was boiling becaue the radiator cap was bad so it got no pressure. in utah now. チャボバン、調子は上々なんですが・・・水をみようとボンネット開けたらリザーバー・タンクの水がグツグツ煮立ってるを見つけてしまい、ほっとけないたちでしょあの二人。ラジエターのキャップが悪くて圧が掛かってないんじゃないの？なーんて言い出した、そうここはユタ州。
so we had to find an auto parts place in the unknown town. it's ok, we found it, got the new cap, problem solved :)
we found an auto parts place in arizona so replaced the old battery to a new one just in case. it's not so cool to search around for an auto parts store in unkown land when you really need it, you know. 見知らぬ土地でパーツ屋を探すのは思いの外エネルギーを要します。なので、今のうちにチャボバンの古いバッテリーをニューに交換。ずっと気になっていたので。アリゾナ州にて。
we were having breakfast talking and had decided to leave tonight or early tomorrow morning. shinya was also looking at the vintage motorcycle reference. and then he found something, showed it to niimie and they started to work on the indian...
oh no, something might have happened, they were getting serious...
drat, drat, and double drat! they found that the timing gear bushing threads were stripped. shinya said "it's not good but it's good that we found it now." ok, that's great but i started to think who might have that bushing and where to send it as we'd be leaving soon. new york, yes, i should arrange to send it to new york! i decided in a split second. then shinya said "niimie is making one now." of course, they can make anything. what was i so worried about.
