Subject: Re: clutch

The Centerforce clutch is similar in performance to the OEM except for a
lighter pedal pressure. Very handy in stop and go traffic. The only
advantage of the adjustable clutch link is that it allows for adjustment of
the "grab" height of the pedal.

Although jacking of the engine is required for removal of the transaxle it
does not require removal. The transmission is a Renault R-30.

NOTE: I will be in New Orleans Thursday 4/27 to Monday 5/1, please hold your
questions and comments until I return. Thanks DMC Joe

You said "I hope there is an alternative..."; what are your objections to
the original heatsheild, it is the most efficient at heat rejection.

Subject: Lazy mechanic...

Hey List,

       I just noticed something on my binnacle.....whoever worked on my car 
for the previous owner was too lazy to figure out why the Lambda warning 
light was on and they just simply took out the light bulb.  Actually now that 
I think about it, thats a lot easier than troubleshooting the problem, 
replacing the O2 sensor and resetting the Lambda service counter and making 
sure the car runs correctly.  And all the rest of the DeLorean owners do all 
the hard work, too bad I don't have the phone number of that mechanic, looks 
like he does good work...j/k  :)   Thanks!

Later,
Nick

Subject: Re: muffler heat shield

This shredded condition is typical of the OEM heatsheilds and is caused by
repeated heat and cool cycles and deterioration from water damage.

Subject: Auto or Manual Chassis

Is there an easy way to tell if a chassis is an Auto or Manual?
As I understand it you can put an Auto box in a Manual chassis but its very difficult the other way round, is that true or is it Manual into an Auto chassis?

thanks 

Chris

Subject: Cleveland souvenir

Is there any interest in a souvenir clear acrylic glass, 16 oz., with a DeLorean logo ---  
wings up view, and some copy about Cleveland 2000? Cost would be $5.00 each, 
which should be a reasonable price for everyone. Since I'll be driving, there wouldn't 
be a lot of room. I need an idea of quantity required. To save room, please contact 
me directly at:  drinkware_at_dml_lweb.net   

Permission from the organizers is formally requested,  at this time,  to supply these.  
Please contact me at my e-mail shown.

I may have room for a navigator. Applications are now being accepted!!

Subject: 5 year old navigator

Hi Scott,

You said:

> Mike, My co-pilot/navigator will be my 5 year old son.  He is doing
> well with his reading, but multi-syllable words still present a challenge
> for him.  Please make the directions simple.

Attached is an Excel spreadsheet with the latest draft of the tour directions.  If this format
is no good I will resend it as an ASCII or HTML file.  Look it over and decide if you believe
your son can handle it.

The tour takes place in three legs. Each leg will be printed on a different color of paper,
and the same color will be traced on that section of the map using a matching  highlighter.

I *might* be able to make even simpler directions.  The real problem will be with street
names.  I cannot simplify the names.  The navigator may need to read 20 some  names like
"Edgewater" and "Clifton" and "Euclid."  Because you have the directions two months early, you
might reherse the names with your son.  By June he could be able to read and pronounce all the
street names, and you would be fine.

The audio tape will also have the directions, with the street names pronounced by yours
truely.  The tape is pretty well synchronized if everyone is driving near the speed limit in
normal traffic.  The potential problem will be if several tour participants get bunched up at
an intersection or light.  This could happen if someone is a leadfoot or tailgater.  If this
happens then everyone behind them will have their recording thrown off schedule, and they will
need the navigator to read the directions until they reach the next stop.

- Mike S.

Subject: Re: POR15 (was Rust)

I used it when I rehabbed my frame. (It's also available from Wurth 
as "Rustguard". Exactly the same stuff, the printing on the 
instructions side of the label is identical).  I've also used it to 
paint brake calipers (on other cars). Great stuff. Only comes in 
black or silver, but you can paint over it with Dark Machine Grey 
Rustoleum for a good color match to the DMC paint. 

Now for the disclaimers:
This is VERY potent paint, full of nasty chemicals (cynanide for one 
thing) so don't even think about spraying it unless you are dressed 
like a nuclear plant guy with an external air supply. If you get it 
on your skin it will be there for at least 3-4 days. 

As usual, check the www.dmcnews.com website tech section, here's a 
direct link.

I own VIN 6770 produced in November '81 and it has a separate clock.  I

know the fronts are 4x10 just like my Fiero. Also, I know there was a thread 
on this, but what is the best way to illumintae your speedo and other gauge

Subject: Repair for reversed blower motor syndrome...

I've done this to my own car, so I can vouch for it's effectiveness if done correctly.

Here's my solution. What I did on mine was I drilled out the rivets holding the two
pieces together. I then rotated the lower half 180 degrees from the upper
half. This reverses the magnetic polarity of the motor, and reverses the
direction that it spins. Now, the hard part is the drilling for the new
rivets. Just make sure you line it up180 degrees from where it was when you
drill the new holes. (When I put it back together, I used small sheet metal
screws instead of rivets in case I ever had to service it again.. and it
turned out that I did. Mine got some water in it and rusted a little. I
cleaned it and repacked it with grease, so now it's fine.) Now, the other
tricky part is drilling the hole for the power wire to go through. Just make
sure you line the new hole right and make it the same width as the old one.
You'll see what I mean when you take it apart. Now, it is a little tricky to
do it, but it'll work flawlessly, and you'll have the satisfaction of fixing
the problem yourself, and fixing it the RIGHT way. Trust me, it's a good
feeling. And you get to save that money you would've spent on the fan motor
on something else. 

This procedure isn't by any means impossible, just time consuming and you have to be accurate when drilling the new holes. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

---Dan

Subject: Re: Digest Number 26 POR15

Pour over Rust 15 (POR15) is not a "fix" if your frame has a case of rust
thru,it is supposed to be in cases of non structurial rust areas,if your
frame has surface rust but not rust thru ,that is ok to use on it,or if you
remove the epoxy coating and apply POR15
over the bare frame that is fine too,but the best bet is to repair any rust
and then apply POR15,also after applying POR,it is a good idea to paint over
POR15,because it is sensitive to light.

Subject: Re; rust Por 15

I have seen a few postings regarding frame restoration and POR15. 
I spent the winter redoing my frame on the car and used Por 15.
I replied to a few people privately, because there seems to be 
interest in this subject I will reprint the responses.
Sort of long. 


Hi Greg,
 
I was hoping to start a thread so others would be privy to the 
discussion and also contribute there experience (I've ans. some other 
e-mails also). Let me know if you think we should post this? 
 
I'm doing the frame work in my garage with the car on jack stands (a 
lift would be nice...)
The wheels and the metal plate covering the gas tank (cant remember 
the name of the big metal cover) are about all I've had to 
disassemble. In the area you are describing I just used a die grinder 
and a 2"(the smaller the better) wire wheel and a scraper, you 
pick/scrape off as much epoxy as you can and use the wire wheel and 
try to get it down to bare metal as best you can.
Note: Many of the internal places you pry the epoxy off of you can't 
wire wheel thus you
      just paint right over the rust with the por15 (it can go right 
over the rust as long as
      it's not loose).
Let me clarify the part of the car I'm talking about, this would be 
the front lip of the frame that the metal gas tank cover rests on, if 
you are talking about the cover itself your best bet is to get a 
refurbished one from PJ Gradys about $100 with exchange I think, he 
doesn't even mess with them he sends them out and I think has them 
powder coated.
 
Then I paint it with two coats of por15 1st coat I use black then the 
gray so you can delineate the two and see were you have been (the
gray 
doesn't look too bad compared to original).
 
I hope this ans. your question, you can spend lots of time on this 
but(like I have and my frame is in good shape) but it's truly 
important if you want to preserve your car.
 
Regards,
 



Hi Nick,
 
I'm scraping the bad parts, I use a die grinder with a 2" wire wheel 
were I can reach and a screw driver in the internal places (front 
forks, were the steering rack bolts in etc.) Rob Grady added a 3/4" 
whole to gain access in the front (you add the whole on the bottom of 
the frame in the midpoint between the other 3/4" wholes that already 
exist)by the lower control arms.
 
I think the por 15 is great stuff! you want to transfer it into 
smaller containers once opened so there is less air contact with the 
stuff that's left over and ideally you get the second coat on while 
the 1st coat is still almost tacky.
 
I am using the gloss black for the first coat and then the gray so I 
can see were I have done the work already, the gray is a reasonably 
close match to the original gray so it looks good all by itself. I 
will have it finished in the original gray epoxy when I'm done.
 
Have lots of gloves handy when using the por 15.
 
Regards,
 
Mike

Are you referring to the thin, (like a coat hanger) line that runs down to 
the hot water switch?

Subject: door adjustment

Group,

        Both my doors catch when they close. It takes a very hard slam to 
shut the drivers side door. What can I do to adjust this? I am used to 
adjusting conventional doors, so any help would be nice!

# 6974, had a clock in the tape deck door, but the display died, so now
it has a cd player. 
With out the display it was almost impossible to tun the radio, and the
tape deck chewed up tapes, were the clockless ones any better?

Subject: Acceleration FIXED!!

Hello List,
    I was so worried that my acceleration problem was going to be something 
expensive.  It turns out that a mouse at through the acceleration enrichment 
circuit wires.  I hooked them up and took the car down the street and it 
performed PERFECT.  This is the first time it would even go past 30 mph 
without any hesitation.  I would like to thank everyone that replied.
