If you want my $0.02 (1), if you don't know what "camber" (2) is,
(A) you have no business messing with your car's suspension, 
especially a modification that can not be reversed, like cutting coil 
springs and (B) you do not realize how much there is that you don't 
know.
      Go to <www.motorbooks.com> and do a search for "suspension". You 
should come up with a few dozen or so hits.
      Look for "Chassis Engineering" by Herb Adams (3). It is about 
twenty dollars and makes an excellent introduction to suspension 
concepts and building or modifying suspensions.

On my car, I took the spare tire out, and removed the fuel tank access

On the driver side, it runs on the outside of the frame rail.  

Mine was not clogged, but because it was straight out and not bent down,
it could not drain.

Subject: Re: Thanks (was silly antenna...)

The standard rear power antenna location is as good as it gets. The reason
your 93 Volvo  gets such good reception is more due to improved signal
reception technology rather than the placement of the antenna. BTW I get
excellent
radio reception on my 90 Volvo 760 with the rear mounted power antenna.

Personal comment: I personally believe that the DeLorean power antenna
location is the "coolest" looking set up of any car ever! The sight of the
antenna appearing and disappearing into the rear quarter vent is like
"magic".

You've helped me make up my mind to let them use it.  This group is being 
super easy to work with volunteering to carry the liability, rope the car

Well, I'm going chapter 7, which is forcing me to sell my baby.  I thought I'd post a message here first, then it's on to ebay....

53K miles, Stainless, front/rear facias are painted black, auto trans, grey interior is in excellent condition with the exception of the binnacle and glove box lid which are cracked (the glovebox has just a couple minor cracks, the binnacle is covered).  

It's my daily driver, engine runs strong, transmission could use a tune-up ("lags" when accelerating from a dead stop), but the tranny computer is only about a 8000 miles old... Probably needs one or more new shocks (it makes a bit of a squeeky noise when going over bumps)... 

Recently replaced brake cylinder and upgraded SS brake lines.  only one very minor ding in the driver's side door near the window.  I paid $16K and put over $4000 in repairs... I still owe $8500 on it, and I have to buy some sort of econo-family car with the proceeds, so I'm asking $12,000  ...  Car is located in Eugene, Oregon .  Give me a call at 541-431-1268 or email me at davep_at_dml_stprint.com if you are interested... I've gotta sell it quick, so speak now or forever hold your pieces...

Subject: DMC Engine Upgrade

Stopped into DMC yesterday to pick up my car, and Stephen invited me to go 
with him for a drive in Gus Schlachter's car, which has just received the 
first new engine.  Stephen was particularly interested in my impressions, 
since we did a one-off engine on mine a few years back (Port and polished 
heads, slight milling, higher lift cam, a couple of other minor hot rod 
tricks).  In Gus's car, the engine was installed with the stock exhaust 
system as the header system has not arrived as yet, but the initial drive 
was very encouraging.  It seemed to be a little faster overall than mine, 
but with a much smoother power band.  Mine is a little "peaky", coming on 
strong at about 3500 rpm or so, but pulling strong past 6000 (I've actually 
seen 7000 a couple of times in first and second gears).  Gus's begins 
pulling strongly at about 2500 and continues up to 5500 (as far as I dared 
to push it), where Stephen says the dyno says things begin to fall off 
rapidly.

I'm anxious to get another look at the setup once Stephen gets the headers 
on and fine tunes the timing and idle.  I'm hoping to follow it up to 
Cleveland and "road test" it.  What say you, Gus?

Dear DML,

    I just received the documentary film that was re-released. I must say 
that it is extremely well done. The film allows you to be in the know as the 
events of the car company was formed. DeLorean had a difficult time managing 
everyone....

    There is a limited number of editions, and from an enthusiasts point of 
view, well worth the investment. (I bought 3.)

    Everyone have fun in Cleveland.

Subject: Engine Cover help

I spent this evening going over my car trying to fix some of the little
nit-picky things that were slightly out of skew on it.  I managed to get the
louvers to re-latch the right way (and quit rubbing little holes on my new
paint job).

I then tried to adjust the engine compartment cover . . not as much luck
here.  Since I have had the car, the cover has been very "tight" and
requires that someone is pulling up on it for it to actually unlatch.  I
adjusted the 4 bolts that screw onto the cover hinges, but with no
improvement.

Any suggestions?

BTW - I have been one the list 5+ years, and I think this is the first
technical question I have asked . . .WOW!

Dear list,

I just wanted to inform anyone on the list that had
doubts about buying the RARE DELOREAN
DOCUMENTARY/MOVIE being sold on Ebay right now by
Daniel McGauley (who is in the process of making the
new Delorean movie), this is some great stuff. 

The quality of the film is excellent.  The sound and
tracking is perfect and the footage was very exciting
to see.  It was definitely worth the fifty dollars.

Thanks for the info, I was under the impression that the in-line 
fuses were behind the radio, I guess I'll have to take a closer look.

About the alternator, it's the original Ducellier which everybody 
keeps telling me to replace.  However I find it a little hasty to 
replace a part that's been working fine for nearly 20 years. Since I 
plan on putting in an aftermarket stereo system at some point I'll 
probably end up replacing it with a more powerful alternator, but I 
think I stick with the Ducellier until then.

Subject: RE: DMC Engine Upgrade

Bill,

I say I didn't know my car was running yet!  Boy, this must be a great
mailing list for me to be able to get status updates here first.  The last
time I talked to Stephen it was before the weekend, and the car wasn't
driveable yet.  (I've been watching on the webcam...there's a RED one in
there right now...)

I was privileged to be the recipient of the prototype USADMC engine.  My
original engine's water pump failed, and since I was planning on getting one
of the new engines anyway I opted not to fix it and just wait.  But the ship
date on the engine was slipping and Cleveland was approaching and I was
getting nervous.  While talking it over with Stephen, I decided that I was
not going to have my once-in-a-lifetime snapshot with JZD taken in front of
a rental Geo Metro!  I told him that since the schedule was very tight, I'd
rather he sell me a water pump and let me fix it, and then worry about the
new engine after the show.  That's when he offered to let me be the guinea
pig on the new engine, being the great guy that he is.  I've been mum on the
subject because he asked me to keep it low-key until the engine was tested,
but I guess the cat's out of the bag if he's giving out test drives.

And that's not all I'm having done to the car, either.  I'm getting the
lowering springs, the new shocks that Chris Parnham mentioned next week, and
a new set of Yokos.  Anybody need an old set of springs?  Tires?  Shocks?
An engine, perhaps?

So yes, I am fully prepared to give out frequent test drives on the new
setup in Cleveland.  It's just as well, since I then won't have to suffer
through that awful break-in period.   :-)

subject. Anyone have experience with this swap?                                 
                                                                                
                                  Jack Merlin                                   
                                        VIN 6639

Subject: Re: cooling fans

DMC Joe:
Sorry, I took a few days to respond, I was trying various things.  Here is 
what I have found:  (1)the temp switch and the switch from the A/C both seem 
to be working fine.  (2)The two fuses are both good.  (3)I get power to the 
fuses when I jump the temp switch or turn on A/C.  (4)The fans work when 12 
Volts are put to them.  There is no power to the plug that goes into the 
fan. (5) there is no power prior to the connector that has the built in 
condensor. (6) the wires are b/g that leave the fuse block area (as noted in 
manual).

From this I guess that there is a break in a wiring somewhere.  However, the 
car was just sitting in the garage and the cooling fans worked one day and 
not the next.  Also, it appears that each fan has its own power lead.  So, 
it seems odd that while just sitting both power wires could "go bad".

QUESTIONS:  Do both fans share the same ground? If so, losing the ground 
could kill both fans.  If so, where should I look for the problem?  How can 
I check to see that voltage is making it out of the blue socket, after the 
fuses but before the fan connector?   Is there an area where any of these 
wires commonly get pinched that I should check first?  Finally, when the 
fans do come on, which direction should they spin?  Do they push air over 
the radiator or do they pull air through the radiator?
All help is appreciated.
Thanks, Brian 16584
