Finally stopped raining and area under my Bird was now dry enough to crawl around and trouble shoot based on feedback received from you all.

Elected to start with the compressor so I started bus and lifted doghouse cover.
Tension in belts for Air-compressor and Alternator is not adequate and the pulleys do not rotate.

Crawled under to discover on belt broken from crank pulley to water pump to the idler pulley broken.

This Bird sat for 15 years before I bought it. Feeling fortunate to have no major issues when I drove it from Ohio to Tennessee a few months back. Have decided to replace all belts and coolant hoses. I do not have a swing out radiator so I know what I will be doing all of next weekend.

Any suggestions on what else I should address while I am doing this work? As always, input is always appreciated.
