Subject: Strange Find in Las Vegas.

While polking through a junk yard here in Nevada, I managed to 
stumble across a louver from and old parts car. Sadly though, the 
engine cover had already been sent off and was scrapped. Anyhow, who 
ever owned the DeLorean that these louvers came off of put tin foil 
all over the bottom. My question is why? Does anyone know if this was 
some sort of cure to reflect heat off the louvers to prevent sagging? 
To answer any questions, the car is long gone. It was brought in a 
few years ago, slowly picked, and then sold off, but the louvers & 
the engine cover remained. I don't know who bought the car, but I am 
curious. I don't know if it's the same car, but does anyonw know the 
whereabouts of the abandoned DeLorean that was onced parked _at_dml_ Spring 
Mountain & Industrial Road? If you're in Las Vegas let me know. I 
know that there are at least 20 other D's here, and I've even heard 
rumours about a D drag racing _at_dml_ the Speedway. Drop me a line.

Subject: FW: reinstallation of center vents

I recently pulled the center vents out of the dash in order to get at the
radio.  When I tried to put them back in, the two rubber collars that go
around the back of the vent and attach to the ducts didn't quite line up and
got mashed.  The result is that most of the air now shoots out into the
inside of the dash.  I tried taking the vents out and putting them back a
few times, and tried contorting my hands in behind to slide the collars on
better, but nothing seems to work.  Am I missing something?

Subject: Fuel Injector Problem

I am new to the list and I am currently restoring an '83 DMC vin 
016727. When I got th car it wasn't running at all and I wnt through 
th whole fuel system and freed the plunger thats usually problematic 
ith the fuel air mixture. After the plunger was freed the car ran 
smoothly and beautifully, but after I had the car inspected, the 
engine would hunt horribly and after 1 point wouldn't idle at all. I 
ended up richening the air to fuel mixture screw located behind the 
air filter just to get the car to run. After that the car got about 
10 miles to the gallon and now gets about 17 on the highway. I have 
replaced the oxygen sensor, tested the pressures, set the timing, and 
flushed the injectors with cleaning. The problem could be a vacuum 
leak but I am reluctant to buy a vacuum testor because of the price 
and when the engine was pulled I could see no obvious leak. Someone 
had suggested I change the injectors? Is this the most likely problem?

Hello All,

     I spotted a DeLorean Trailer in an image at www.in2time.com.  Image is
located here: http://www.in2time.com/delorean-images/roadside.jpg
Well, in the image, to the far left, I see what appears to be a DeLorean
Trailer.  This would be cool, since the DeLorean is limited to space,
besides under the hood.  Reminds me of the Plymouth Prowler trailer.  It
looks like the front of a D, followed by the back of one.  I was curious as
to if this was a custom job, or has any company manufactured one?  Thanks
for your time.

WARNING!!!
do not add shims to 1 side just to have the same # of shims as the 
other.  you must get on an alignment rack and have the thrust angle 
checked. it is possible to have (i think) as many as 5 per side
not usually the same # of shims on each side. It is very important 
never to change the # of shims unless you are on a rack. you should 
note the # of shims for future reference in case you ever take the 
trailing arm bolts out. while you are there loosen the bolt and then 
turn the head with a wrench while watching if the trailing arm moves 
up and down. this would indicate that the bolt is bent and should be 
replaced immediatly.

Don't take this wrong but if taking the axles off is a problem you 
should probably not be doing the project. The axles are held in by 
very obvious bolts through the CV joints to the rear hubs and the 
transmission output flanges. Just take the bolts out and the axles 
darn near fall out. Wait until you go to unhook the shift linkage and 
the small metal cover panels - that's where the fun starts. And the 
manual is almost no help there either (unless you consider the 
phrase "disconnect the linkage" a lot of help).

Fellow DMCer's,
In this months Biography (June 200), there is an article on John Delorean. 
The article is a rehash of all the stuff we already know, however there is a 
reference to the various Delorean web sites.
I stand corrected as Pep Boys is only in 37 states and Puerto Rico. However 
the idler bearing can be matched at any auto parts store. Sorry Stan was not

Yes Archie, you have discovered one of the many items that were left out of
the workshop manual. Fortunately this is a simple step.
Remove all of the bolts that connect the intimidate drive shaft (parts
manual 4/7/0 #3) from the transmission driveshaft flange (#2). Once
disconnected use bailing wire or cord to tie both driveshafts up and away
from the transmission.

One other note: You will need to jack up the engine appox. 1 1/2 inches to
access the bolts that attach the flywheel protector plate to (parts manual
4/1/1#16) the lower section from the bell housing.

For anyone driving or flying into Cleveland next month, I just uploaded
a homemade map into the vault.  It shows the area highways and the route
I recommend for getting to the Rock Hall & hotel area.  The map is in
the Cleveland2000Files folder.

http://www.egroups.com/files/dmcnews/Cleveland2000Files/

Also for drivers, I added a link (duplicated below) to the Ohio
Interstate Construction page.  As of last week the worst delays getting
into Cleveland were on I-77 south of Akron and I-71 north of Columbus.

http://www.dot.state.oh.us/intercon/

Finally, Ohio is VERY serious about speed traps.  Our Highway Patrol has
a special place in its heart for Michigan drivers, but everyone should
be cautious.  In every direction around Cleveland they patrol the spots
where the speed limit drops from 65 to 60.  The speed trap on I-71 at
Linndale (near West 130 St.) operates almost 24 hours per day.  Unless
you plan on driving the speed limit, you should consider comparing your
route to the www Speed Trap Registry:

"chrome" the ultimate...mind you I couldn't tell the difference between any

Whilst we are on the subject of DeLorean tape players...a chap from Northern
Ireland told me recently that more of the radios/tape players "went over the

surrounding the factory, where they would be collected on the way home!

I recently took my car to a shop to have the entire fuel system flushed. I
drained the gas tank to make the job easier for them. They flushed the fuel
injectors and replaced all of the old hoses in the gas tank. I obtained the
parts from one of the delorean places. I had already replaced the fuel pump
and accumulator about seven years ago. Yes, I cleaned the fuel system and
then parked the car for seven years.

I asked him to clean out the gas tank and flush the lines. I assumed that he
did--I was wrong. My car too ran great at first and then started to hesitate
at takeoffs. I checked the fuel filter and you wouldn't believe how much old
rubber there was in the filter from the old rubber hoses in the tank. I than
ran the fuel pump to flush out the line between the tank and the filter and
replaced the filter. The car runs much better now; however, it still has
some hesitation when first takingoff.

I hope its not possible for the tiny rubber parts to get by the fuel filter
and into the injectors.

It is for METAL tape. They have a little better frequency responce and less
noise.

Subject: Re: Squeeling sound? More info.....

I think that I shall add some more info to my previous posting if this has 
something to do with the clutch components.

First, I don't think I have the stainless steel braided clutch line. Are one 
able to see it from under the car? Is it difficult to "feel" or see what 
clutch line is on the car? I mean, what are the tricks to identify whether 
you have the plastic clutch line or the stainless braided one?

Second, my clutch is dead-hard. I mean, you really have to push it to the 
floor, very hard, a comparison would be to kick a football as hard as you 
can.

Third, I do have a "squeak" sound when I depress the clutch. Sounds like 
something that needs lubrication.

Fourth, the clutch fluid is at constant level. No signs of leaks.

Fifth, the suggestion from Mr. Linstad that the squealing sound maybe the AC 
bearings are not very likely I think. The reason I say so is that I replaced 
those last summer, and that squeal was like hearing a bat from hell...

No, this sound is somewhat quieter, yet annoying. I suspect that there maybe 
something to do with the clutch, but who knows? DMC Joe, any more ideas??

Best wishes
