I found some faults to my original wiring diagram and have made some
changes. The addition of another relay was needed and there are some
connections that have changed. Also anyone that took a look at the original
wiring diagram will notice that the new diagram leaves the 87 connection on
the relays not wired. This was done for a reason, as it would have caused
problems to occur in certain situations.


Please take a look and drop a line if you see anything that I have missed.

About GPS, if the moderators would like this to be posted:


In the event you have not seen it:
For Immediate Release                                         May 1, 2000 


                   STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT REGARDING
               THE UNITED STATES' DECISION TO STOP DEGRADING
                    GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM ACCURACY


Today, I am pleased to announce that the United States will stop the
intentional degradation of the Global Positioning System (GPS) signals
available to the public beginning at midnight tonight.  We call this
degradation feature Selective Availability (SA). This will mean that
civilian users of GPS will be able to pinpoint locations up to ten times
more accurately than they do now.  GPS is a dual-use, satellite-based
system that provides accurate location and timing data to users worldwide.
My March 1996 Presidential Decision Directive included in the goals for GPS
to: "encourage acceptance and integration of GPS into peaceful civil,
commercial and scientific applications worldwide; and to encourage private
sector investment in and use of U.S. GPS technologies and services."  To
meet these goals, I committed the U.S. to discontinuing the use of SA by
2006 with an annual assessment of its continued use beginning this year.

The decision to discontinue SA is the latest measure in an on-going effort
to make GPS more responsive to civil and commercial users worldwide.  Last
year, Vice President Gore announced our plans to modernize GPS by adding
two new civilian signals to enhance the civil and commercial service.  This
initiative is on-track and the budget further advances modernization by
incorporating some of the new features on up to 18 additional satellites
that are already awaiting launch or are in production.  We will continue to
provide all of these capabilities to worldwide users free of charge.

My decision to discontinue SA was based upon a recommendation by the
Secretary of Defense in coordination with the Departments of State,
Transportation, Commerce, the Director of Central Intelligence, and other
Executive Branch Departments and Agencies.  They realized that worldwide
transportation safety, scientific, and commercial interests could best be
served by discontinuation of SA.  Along with our commitment to enhance GPS
for peaceful applications, my administration is committed to preserving
fully the military utility of GPS.  The decision to discontinue SA is
coupled with our continuing efforts to upgrade the military utility of our
systems that use GPS, and is supported by threat assessments which conclude
that setting SA to zero at this time would have minimal impact on national
security.  Additionally, we have demonstrated the capability to selectively
deny GPS signals on a regional basis when our national security is
threatened.  This regional approach to denying navigation services is
consistent with the 1996 plan to discontinue the degradation of civil and
commercial GPS service globally through the SA technique.

Originally developed by the Department of Defense as a military system, GPS
has become a global utility.  It benefits users around the world in many
different applications, including air, road, marine, and rail navigation,
telecommunications, emergency response, oil exploration, mining, and many
more.  Civilian users will realize a dramatic improvement in GPS accuracy
with the discontinuation of SA.  For example, emergency teams responding to
a cry for help can now determine what side of the highway they must respond
to, thereby saving precious minutes.  This increase in accuracy will allow
new GPS applications to emerge and continue to enhance the lives of people
around the world.

Subject:  [DML] Doors open too FAST




Hello list,
    The outside of my DeLorean is starting to come back together.  I just
need a rear window and the outside is pretty much done(still needs paint).  I
retorqued my torsion bars because the doors had to be removed.  I put brand
new pj grady struts on them when it was in the mid 40's(they still went too
fast then too but I was tired and left them).  now that it is hot outside
they open to fast and bounce hard at the top(2-3 hard bounces). before I put
a rear window in I want to get the torsion bars taken car of first.  It makes
the car look bad when the doors bounce so hard at the top.  how many splines
should I move it down?  I know it is very touchy so would 1 or 2 notches to
the trick?  if anyone has had experience please let me know.  I just watched
back to the future to see how those doors should roughly open.  In part II
the doors seem to work much better than they do in part I.  but my doors go
way faster than thoughs.  I know this isnt the best comparison but the
DeLorean owner that comes to my house has bad struts so I dont really know.
    I am also looking for a used rear window if anyone has one.  I am also
working on a web-page so people can see what my DeLorean has acheived.

Thank you all,
Dave

 ((In our contemporary society it is PC incorrect to have said the following;

 GPS = Girlfriend Pointing south, north, east, west.
     You guys drive a DeLorean. You should at least have a Hawaiian Tropic 
 Model navigating you, not a computer.

I sincerely apologize to any member that have taken offense to degrading 
their Global Positioning System. I'm sure it will become a great system in a 
couple of years. However I'm going to keep my "GPS" next to me in the 
passenger seat.))

Subject: Silencers

Hi,

I've got a free-flow exhaust modified '81 DeLorean, and it is cool to drive
a D with such horsepower, but I want to dampen the noise a bit. I know it
sounds very cool, but sometimes (especially late at night) the loud noise is
a bit embarrasing.

I will have to measure the size of the exhausts, but my question is: is it
possible to mount something on the end of the exhaust pipes to turn the
noise down a bit without having to replace both the mufflers?

I have no idea on the availability and existance of these things, so any
help is appreciated...
Yours,

Rob van der Veer

Subject: Re: Silencers

I have a similar problem with my Twin Turbo setup.  It is sometimes just
too darn loud!

I have the older setup, where there are no Cats, and 2 small mufflers
(one for each side).  The newer kits (I am told) have dual cats, but no
mufflers.  Instead they have resonator tips.

It is possible that those resonator tips may muffle the noise a bit, but
most of the tips I have seen are designed to make more noise.  They are
like welding a coffee can to the tail pipe!  I see the kids who
customize the import cars seem to like MORE noise, so they put those
resonators on their hondas so they sound like camaros.

If you find anything, let me know.
