Subject: Re: Re: Historic Blunders

It seems to me that BOTH of these stories are true.

Indeed Thatcher did hate the whole DeLorean ordeal. Basically because 
DeLorean had cost the British government millions in taxpayer's pounds, and 
it is against the political nature of the British Conservative party to spend 
Government money subsidising anything like the DeLorean. Millions of the 
taxpayer's pounds.....all for a company that was being dying very fast. 

As far as I know, Thatcher did NOT order the dies destroied, but sold to the 
fishing company as mentioned in one of the previous postings. They were 
indeed dumped into the ocean, I believe to act as "anchors" to hold down some 
fishing nets or something....I could be wrong here, feel free to correct 
me.....

The British tried to recover some of their loses by selling these dies to the 
highest bidder, which was AFAIK the fishing enterprise.

.....so WHY doesnt someone go down there and get the dies? Well they would 
not be of any use if you tried to use them for their original intensions 
again. After 10 minutes in salt water, the dies basically have become useless.

What a shame. But hey, at least we still have the VARI dies for the inner 
body of the car.

By the way, please correct me if I am completely wrong here. I dont want to 
send out false information that will confuse everybody even more.

   I'll field this question, and remind everyone else to get their cars into
the Directory too. 

There will be a newly updated version of the Directory available in time for
the Cleveland show. We'll have copies available at the DML table.. although
I'm planning to distribute them in diskette form. Printing them was too
costly and we were only able to sell a few copies. 

To add yourself and your car to both the DeLorean Owners Directory and the
VIN Chronology, go to the DMCnews website at:

http://www.dmcnews.com/directory.html

By filling out the form you will be listed in both the DOD and the VIN
Chronology. Instructions are included on the web page. 

The name listing does not include owners who wish to remain anonymous (see
form). 

If you have any questions, contact me at:

Subject: Day Time Running Lights (Amber)

 
This question and answer came up on a site, which I was getting some information from.  I thought that this would be a nice safety feature for our Deloreans, especially for those of us that drive them on a routine basis. 

 

I am far from being an electrical guru, but I know that there has to be someone on the list that might just know how or can figure out how to make this work for our cars. Is anyone willing to take on this project and sharing the information on how to do it with the list members.

 

Robert Starling

Vin#5252

 

Q: I see some of the new vehicles from GM have super-bright parking / turn

signal lights instead of using the headlights as DRLs. Is there anything

I can do like this on the Impala?

 

A: 

Those lights actually use 2057 bulbs, which are dimmer both on low and high 

filaments than 2357s. 

The difference is that on the '97 F-cars they wire the turn signals to work 

as DRLs (not the parking lights), which means that the 32 

candlepower bright filament stays on all the time. When you use the turn 

signal, those applications switch the brighter filament OFF rather than ON. 

In other words, if you installed the brighter 2357 bulbs in the F-cars, the 

DRLs would be even brighter, since they would be using a 40 cp filament 

instead of the 32 cp filament they use stock.

 

You could get the same effect on an Impala if you wire the turn signal/park 

lamps so the brighter filament comes on with the parking lights. Also you 

would have to rewire the relay so that it flashes the filament off rather 

than on when the turn signal is used, just like in the F-cars. Then when you 

turn on the park lamps, you'd have the bright DRL style amber lights lit up 

just like on the '97 F-cars. That would also give you a "switch able" DRL, 

that is by using the parking lights you could turn them on. You 

could also wire it up to come on all the time the car is running.

This would be an excellent use for the top Caprice wagon switch added to the 

LH side of the dash!

 

If you have to have DRLs, the use of the turn signals would be preferable

to the reduced power high beam headlights. They use less power, run up the 

hours on cheaper bulbs are much less offensive to traffic in

front of you, plus they look better and more distinctive as well.

I think the wires that you are refering to is the top dead center  pick-up on 
cylinder block.  If you said that the the wires were towards the middle of 
the tranny on the drivers side then it would be the reverse light switch.  
The top dead center pick-up wire connects to the diagonstic plug.  Just a 
thought.  Let me know what it is.

Tail light fixtures are readily available from any of the major DMC

Hi
Just did a check at the Holiday Inn and there are 10 rooms left as of 5/7/00

you must ask for the DeLorean Car show.  If they tell you there are no rooms 
available then ask for Carrie Corrigan and she will help you.

PS
Took the roadtrip with the DCO and boy are you in for a treat.  Mike and 
Patty have done a professional type guide through Cleveland that is not only 
functional but educational and at times humerous.  Besides one other benefit 
is they chose a real great mix of music to use in the background.
This trip is not what I expected.  I expected a good trip but this is an 
awesome trip that you won't want to miss.  It is a bit challanging at times 
but it takes you all over.
Make sure you stop at the NASA Research.

The place on the river is real cool also
i will have pictures of it on my web page in a few days I havae to get the

Subject: Re: Day Time Running Lights (Amber)

Rob,

This sounds like a ver good idea, unfortunately, it would be a very
completed modification for the following reason. The front park/directional
lamps are duel filament; low wattage for the parking lights and high wattage
for the directionals. To turn the high wattage circuit on for driving light
applications would simply require additional wiring to each lamp, an
interior mounted switch, and a couple of diodes.

Her is the problem: To allow these lamps to double as driving lights you
would have to build a circuit that would allow the high wattage circuit to
return to normal
whenever the directional or hazard flashers were activated, this would
require some type of processor isolate the different circuits.

Hello,
    I have mentioned once before that my tachometer was stuck at 5500 rpms.  
now when I turn the key it goes up as far as it can go way up into the 
redline area.(just started today)  when I run the car it also goes up to the 
redline area.  when you give it gas it will move just a little (2-3mm) when 
you remove the key it goes back to 5500 rpms. is this the tach?  or something 
else.  where does it hook into the engine at?  could the other end of the 
system be the problem?  the previous owner said it worked before it sat. 

please let me know.

and if Sal (the one with a parts car)is on the list please email me.  I would 
like to order ALL of those parts we talked about from you.

thanks

Subject: Evidence of front end update ?


Hello All,
  
  Does anyone have any photos that they can email me (or direct me
to) to help identify if a Delorean has had the front-end/suspension 
update?

Thanks,
-Hank

Jason,

We published the first DeLorean parts crossover list back in 1986 but
abandoned it several years back because many of the manufactures of the
crossover parts changed specifications. Clients would call me and say: "I
just purchased the crossover part you listed and it does not fit.."

Parts dealers like NAPA and AutoZone frequently change part numbers and
specifications without notice, usually on a yearly basis.

More than likely you will receive information from other list members on
crossover parts availability.

Let me close with the following: Many parts for your DeLorean are available
from local parts suppliers but be aware that there is know way of knowing if
the part will work properly in your DeLorean. Parts purchased from DeLorean
parts suppliers are either factory or exceed factory specifications. Most
important is that we all provide technical assistance after your purchase.
Lastly, purchasing parts from DeLorean businesses helps to support one of
the largest after market part networks of any limited production vehicle
anywhere in the world.

Dave,

You are absolutely correct about mechanics throwing away the TDC pick-up
when reinstalling a transmission, unfortunately they usually throw away the
flywheel protection plate that this wire is attached to. The protection
plate is there to prevent road debris from entering the bellhousing and
causing serious damage to the flywheel and clutch components.

Subject: Facia painting final chapter

I finished the facias on both cars and then worked the clearcoat a bit 
because of all the waves in Richards facia.  I used a hairdryer and 
straightened it out a bit
Probably won't last past the first time he used the headlights but I did get 
rid of the wave in the facia,  I then wetsanded the very heavy coat of clear 
I put on and it really came out nice.  the pictures are being sent to the 
vault along with the pictures of the facia I stripped down to the original 
plastic.  That facia came out best no surprise but  Richards came out pretty 
close both are very clean.  Even MR bugs sag sanded out good so I am done 
with this project and the pictures are there for you to look at.
The gloss level is high but loks good.

Well thats all on this one enjoy the pictures

and come to the show and see the two cars for yourself

Ken
