I don't think this would be the problem. I beleive the DeLorean is equiped 
with a continuous fuel injection system. Meaning that instead of each 
injector having a turn, each injector is constantly spraying fuel into a 
chamber which mixes with air and is drawn into the cylinder when the time 
comes. If a injector was plugged or dirty you would have an over all lean 
condition on that particular side of the engine.

Apologies for using the list this way!!

I'm hoping to get in touch with Richard Kibbey -- he wrote an

caught on fire in Indiantown, FL, and I have some questions to ask him
about it.

The article is posted on the DMC News website at

James,
They seemed pretty lenient on how the value was to be determined.  The agent told me that he could look up a book value unless I had an idea of how much it was worth.  I ended up showing him my insurance policy which has the vehicle's insurance value, and that seemed to suit him fine.  In fact, I get the distinct feeling that if I'd had no proof of the car's value, he would have taken my word over the book value anyway.  Unfortunately, I never did get to see what "book" they're using.  I think that if someone were to come up to Canada to get a car, then their sales receipt would be more than adequate proof of value.

Can anyone be more specific about what transmission is in a Delorean?  Y'all

both?  And is this a Renaut designation or did some other manufacture come
up with this?

Subject: RE: trans filter

Jeff, the one part of your question no one else has answered yet was whether
the ring gear was swapped to the opposite side for the DeLorean application
of the Renault transmission.  I can answer that - the ring gear can not just
be "flipped".  The DMC ring and pinion gears are unique, and to add to the
problem the case they fit in is also.  Several years ago, with the aid of a
top transmission specialist, I tried to modify a front-wheel drive
transmission by first flipping the ring gear (which isn't even close to
working), then by installing a new DMC ring and pinion.  Even with machining
the case they would not fit.  You can easily use the front wheel drive trans
if you can find one - the trick is to re-use the ring and pinion case and
gears from your old trans as it separates from the actual transmission
housing.  And no, I don't have an interchange for the filter either - yet.
Hope this helps.

This is completely false.  The DeLorean can be picked up like any other car

No.  The DeLorean's speed can be checked by both RADAR and LASER systems.
However, it does present a low profile target that is difficult to hit for a
good reading, especially if your state does not require front plates.

Subject: Need door lock parts

Does anyone know where I can buy a parts kit to work on Delorean locks?
It's either that or cut and file some new parts out of brass stock.  Any
suggestions?

I just got back from dealing with the lock smith who re-keyed my new door
locks to match the ignition.  I took the locks to him previously asking him
if he had the parts to re-key them, and he said there was no problem.  I get
the locks home to find out that there were several parts missing from them.
He just took out parts and re-arranged what was left to make them work.

Well, duh, I could have done that myself.  I told him that I could have done
that myself, but I wanted it done right, so I was taking it to him.  He
proceeds to open one of the locks by gouging the back side with a key on his
key chain.  I told him I had paid $100 for that lock and I would appreciate
it if he would treat it a little better
than that.  He tells me that he doesn't have the spares to make the lock
100% and then started laughing at me asking me if I thought that those extra
few parts would stop someone from breaking into my car.  I told him no --
that I am trying to have everything done right to this car and I want the
locks done right too.  I wanted to smash out some of his teeth and tell him
that his jaw would probably work fine without the extra teeth and that it
probably wouldn't cause him to starve from malnutrition.  But I have had
people rip me off for far greater sums of money, so I let it go.

I asked him to give me back all the parts he kept out of them, and he said
he had already thrown them out.  Nice qualified lock smith we are dealing
with here.  Two other locksmiths in town turned the job down because they
admitted to not having the needed parts on hand.  This man wasn't as honest.

The moral of the story... don't let just anyone work on your car or any
separated part therefrom.

Subject: Re: Coasting and pulsating

Technically you are correct. The bosch system is continuous with a 
fuel injecter for each cylinder. More accuratly when that cylinder 
fires if the injecter has put a different amount of fuel out for 
it(either too much, not enough or a crummy spray pattern) then it 
would give a different specific impulse. For that matter anything
that 
would cause an imbalance would do that including a stuck or sticking 
valve, a misajusted valve, carbon build-up, a problem in the ignition 
to that cylinder, etc. A good baseline test would probably be to do a 
compression test and make sure all cylinders are within 5% of each 
other and if they are then to test the fuel injectors and also the 
metering unit for balance.

Subject: Fuel mixture oscillation (was "Coasting and pulsating")

I've spent a little time examining the behavior of the fuel injection system
on our cars (see various back issues of the DeCO newsletters). The DeLorean
fuel/air mixture is controlled by the injection computer based on a signal
received from the lambda sensor in the exhaust. This forms a closed loop
control system.

By monitoring the mixture (using some of the circuits outlined in the back
issues) it appears to me that the mixture control scheme in the DeLorean is
not very stable and has a tendedncy to easily oscillate between rich and
lean. This oscillation is probably the same thing many cars suffer from when
they are cold and the idle surges until the engine warms up a bit. Although
it's not possible to tell from your description without doing a couple
measurements, a perceived change in the engine's performance could be partly
due to the ideal fuel/air mixture swinging between lean and rich due to the
efforts of the injection computer to "hunt" for the proper mixture. The
tendency for a closed loop feedback control system to oscillate is
excacerbated by a slow response in the feedback path (i.e. the oxygen sensor
responding slowly). I suspect that when the sensor is cold that it responds
more slowly, hence the tendency for idle to surge on some cars when the
engine is cold. I'm not sure what the failure mode of the sensors are when
they reach the end of their useful life (they should be replaced every 30K
miles as the sensors do have a finite life, which is why the lambda counter
and dash indicator are there), but if the degradation in sensor performance
near the end of their life impacts their responsiveness, then the injection
computer will have an even harder time regulating the mixture properly.

The closed loop mixture control system in our cars is actually pretty neat,
but unfortunately the performance is not as good as it could be if the
algorithms were better tuned to the particular application.

It is normal for all fuel injected cars to go back and forth between rich
and lean.  The oxygen sensor is not precise enough, nor the fuel system
responsive enough to get the mixture perfectly right all the time.  So it
is normal to go back and forth between rich and lean.

The O2 sensor will not work at all when it is cold, so the system has to
run in open loop (a preset amount of fuel, without regard to the O2
sensor) mode at first. I don't know about the K-jetronic specifically, but
it is also normal for fuel injection systems to run open loop at full
throttle and/or high RPM.  (In this case you should see the mixture become
rich and stay there).

Subject: Re: trans filter-final drive

Be very careful in changing the final drive-transmission combination. 
There are some very critical dimensions to observe between the two 
components. Read the manual and understand what they are and how to
do them, you need special tools to measure and adjust. Failure to 
adjust correctly will quickly cause damage to either the final drive 
or the transmission or both. The final drive has a very low failure 
rate and the trans is not too bad if you take care of it and don't 
beat it to death. As in any car with an automatic transmission the 
trans has friction plates which do wear and will eventualy cause the 
trans to need to be rebuilt. Depending on your driving habits and
luck 
with the shift computer an automatic trans could last 100,000 miles. 
The final drive has no lifetime limit if you keep it filled with
clean 
oil and change it once in a while, 50,000 is probably often enough. 
During a trans rebuild all a final drive would require is maybe new 
bearings, seals and, gaskets.

 $3000.00 for a watch???   If I can get an order for 15 watches, I can have them produced for the list with the DMC  wings up design, for $22.00 each and the watch comes in a  2 pce silver tin box. The watch has a stainless steel case, leather strap, top quality  Japanese Citizen movement, white face with silvertone hands, (and sweeping second hand),  24 month limited warranty.( #tlg28). I have been in the promotional products business for 30 years, and supplied the DeLorean patio glasses at the Cleveland show. Please contact me directly at:  drinkware_at_dml_lweb.net

No.  :}

The DeLorean has a pretty low radar cross section, because of the slanted
radiator, the rear mounted engine, and its low profile.  But the stainless
does not confer radar immunity.  It has somewhat less radar signature than
normal sheet metal, but far more than plastic or fiberglass.

Even if the DeLorean were radar immune, you could still get tickets by
being paced, laser, or by the good old fashioned stopwatch.
