Subject: Re: Angle drive lubrication

In order to quiet the speedometer cables on my old GM cars, I would pull out
the cables and grease them down real well with wheel bearing grease.  I've
never had any problems -- only less noisy speedometers.  Would this be a bad
thing to try on a Delorean?  Shouldn't the cables be well greased all the
way up to the speedometer?

I think my D's angle drive is probably due a good oiling.  So what is the
best bet?

Matthew, 
Don't throw away electrical parts. Other than the common 7 relay's , I will 
take the parts and rebuild them or fix them. Switches, alternators, starter 
motors, ECU units, Lambda units, you name it.

Subject: Caravan to Minnesota Fall Get-Together

(Note to Moderator: Thanks for the tip!)

For anyone who is interested in attending Nick Kemp's fall gathering in
Buffalo, MN on Sept. 17th, I am leading a caravan from the Minneapolis
area out to his orchard.  Remember, ANYONE is invited to this gathering,
so everyone come on over here to Minnesota and show your car or simply
check all
of ours out.  Anyone interested in the event should first directly email
Nick Kemp (nkemp'at'pclink.com) and tell him you are coming.  Then if
you want to join the
caravan, email me (ultra'at'isd.net) for directions and the time for the
starting
location.  I hope to see a lot of you guys there!

People feel free to criticize whenever they want but few ever bother to learn 
the real story of what happened. Makes me mad.

I checked the site. Also in the time-line box to the left, they state the
car was built in Canada!
Perhaps they have some confusion with the Bricklin?

I just sent a L-O-N-G e-mail to paulb_at_dml_canoe.ca (one of the editors) and
pointed out the inaccuracies. . .If we want to see this changed on their
site, I would suggest that some more people do the same.

Subject: Re: Ouch!

I too hate it when people make totally ignorant comments such as 
this. It is interesting to note though that this quote also came from 
the very same page: "1981 -- The first and only stainless steel car, 
the DeLorean, was built in Canada." ...?!? Obviously wrong on both 
counts with this bit of 'trivia'. Who ever the guy is who wrote the 
article is, he must not keep accuracy as a priority. His writing is 
mediocre and has a very generic feel to it. Kinda get the feeling 
that he'd have a hard time performing an oil change, let alone be 
able to describe the history of automobiles and the evolution of 
their technology. Chances are these postings are the 
most "recognition" he's ever gotten in his entire career. But what 
can you do? Some people will never WANT to learn...

Subject: DeLorean Midwest September 9,10 weekend

The DeLorean Midwest Connection club has a 2-event weekend coming up.

Saturday September 9 is the Fall Tech Session in Naperville IL. This will be
a light-maintenance day (oil changes, door adjustments etc) and a tech
session by James and Bill of DeLorean Motor Company. They also expect to be
demonstrating one of the cars equipped with the new modified PRV engine.
This is open to members of the DeLorean Midwest Connection and the Mid-State
DeLorean club. For membership information see www.delorean-midwest.org and
www.midstatedmc.com For information on this event contact Dave
(dswingle"at"enteract.com) or Marty (wingd2"at"aol.com). (change the "at" to
_at_dml_).

Sunday September 10 is the annual British Car Union at Oakton College in
DesPlaines IL. This is open to the public. We usually have from 8-15
DeLoreans attending. The total show is over 900 British (including Irish!)
cars. More information on this event is available at www.qth.com/bcu

Subject: Deloreans made in Canada by Stephen Payne

If I can get the publisher of the paper to sponsor a Delorean show
just for a weekend how many of you would like to attend
I have a letter in to him where I kinda made fun of the article
Sorry I couldn't help myself 
DeLorean made in Canada just got me laughing.
Guess Eurofest is a figment of our imaginations too.
I like Canada its a great place but they need journalists I guess.
I was rolling on the floor laughing at this guy
Wouldn't it be poetic justice to have a show sponsored by his paper
with him covering it on DeLoreans
I will push this thought if there is interest 
They will have to host it 
I am kinda burned out still but if they supply a space, dinner and hotel 
at a reasonable cost (with those kinda comments it should be free to Delorean 
owners LOL)  I will try to coordinate it.  I think 20 cars should do it 
Weekend trip 

just a thought 

Ken

Subject: DeLorean in magazine

Tonight I just purchased the September 2000 issue of Sport Compact Car and as I was reading through it, I came across a DeLorean on page 40 in the "Max Drive" section of the mag.  Usually, this section covers cars that have been modified in many ways and always includes a picture of the car.  The only thing modified on this DeLorean was the ride height lowered using a "euro lowering kit" which we are all so familiar with.  The car is owned by Chris Grubbs and is an '81 - looks like a black interior.  Overall, it looks in really good shape.  Chris, if you are on this list, congratulations on getting into the magazine!

Subject: Re: Power antenna installation

Anyone buying a power antenna kit from De Lorean Motor Company gets a 
complete set of illustrated instructions for installation. It should 
be noted that the kits sold by most, if not all, the major vendors 
are slightly different in configuration than the original setup 
designed by the original De Lorean Motor Company, particularly in the 
area of wiring.

If you are thinking was replacing your front fender antenna, but 
wonder about thatunsightly hole that will be left behind, we 
routinely weld in and refinish the fender holes, too.

Subject: RE: replacement engines

Matthew said "The Vortec V-6 sits nicely when fuel injected, but if you
carburate it then you have to cut a hole in the engine cover to accommodate
everything (there's a list member who has this setup in a near racing
configuration and it really is just beautiful)."  If you are refering to my
car, the only reason the carb sticks up through the engine cover is because
it is supercharged.  Without the blower, the carb would fit under the cover.
But it is kind of interesting to look in the mirror and see the carb, which
was exactly the effect I was after.

"Near racing configuration"???  I would never have described my car that
way.  Its just a daily driver.
