"I carry a spare when I'm wheeling just in case, which I bet makes most folks chuckle."
Not me. Spare hose clamps are clamped onto radiator & heater hoses - just in case. Spare v-belts and radiator hoses are zip-tied to the underside of the driver/passenger seats.
Sadly, with Serp's - I think their failure is often a bearing failure and that is often not tended out of the on-vehicle "spares" box (at least for the casual day-wheeling we do - which is why this forum exists - to get out with at least one other vehicle - one of those vehicles becomes the recovery truck, if needed).
We all decide how much "what if" options we can recover from. I carry a separate fuel pump too - but then I've had issues in that department. I should carry spare sensors (Throttle Position, O2, Crankshaft). It'd be nice to carry a spare computer too.
