Rory, 
DMC Joe when he gets back may have the exact fix, but I have replaced 2 
gasoline accumulators on 3 of my cars. It keeps a constant pressure on the 
gas system. Be carefull if you change it out, not to twist the top gas line. 
Be patient an take your time. very close quartes for working and it can be a 
knucle buster .Be sure to get new hoses b/4 you start the job.

Subject: Re: Grounding Questions

Robert, 
Ground points are all over the car. In your service manuel and you can find 
the major points. As far as the alt.meter diping below 13 volts. Keep in mind 
that the meters are appx. 1/2 volt on the low side average. The real question 
is, what happens when you speed up the idle. The new 140 amp alternator I 
have kicks up above 13 volts with everything on by just barely touching the 
foot feed. If you drive a lot and the car runs below 13 volts all the time, 
then there are some things you need to do.

Subject: Vixen Goes to Cleveland... Day One

Sooo... it's been one really, really long day.

I got on the road around 10am and began the trek to Cleveland.  I'm
towing the D behind my 14 year old Mercury Grand Marquis (named
"Prowler".  yes, I name all of my cars).  Now, the owner's manual for
the Mercury says that it's able to tow a 10,000 trailer weight total,
but Prowler seemed sluggish and resentful of having to tow a mere 2,500
lb load on her made-for-luxury rear end.  She really didn't like going
over 55 mph at all.

Well, Prowler is about the same age as me in "people-years".  I guess if
someone strapped a DeLorean to my butt and tried to make me drag it to
Cleveland, I'd be sluggish and resentful, too...

But about the trip... it was long, hot, and nerve-wracking.  I kept
hearing a really loud scraping/grinding noise from the dolly... almost
as if it was breaking loose.  Every time I stopped to check it out, I
couldn't find anything wrong.  Maybe there's something wrong in the D's
rear end?  Hard to say.

I stopped on the Ohio turnpike and checked how things were going.  The D
was holding up fairly well, but I noticed that the passenger side
torsion bar (in place, but not loaded) had broken free of the tape I was
using, and had started to slide out.  I re-taped it, but didn't do the
driver's side (more on that later).

Finally getting into Cleveland, I made several wrong turns but
eventually ended up near the Science Center, and made my way to a
parking area.  It happened to be the wrong area, I found out later, but
I had already unloaded the Vixen so I prepared to just drive her over to
the parking garage.  As soon as I got back in the car, the engine just
quit.  After a bit of diagnosis, I found that my brand new fuel pump had
stopped dead.  I hate when things like that happen.  I pulled it out to
try and get it working, but no luck.

Now the car is off of the dolly, and in the wrong place.  I can't get it
back on the dolly without starting it, and I can't push it a half-mile
to where it needs to be.  I hated leaving the car totally unsecured and
helpless in an area I knew nothing about, but I figured that I had to do
just that.  I walked up to the Holiday Inn, and began my search for a
fuel pump.  No luck.  Oh well.

I walked back down to the car, and decided that maybe with a strong
enough push, I would be able to get the car up on the dolly again... and
it worked.  Whew.  Everything is fine now, except... where is my
driver's side torsion bar?  You've got to be kidding!  I lost it?  I
don't believe this.

Well, I figured that I'd have to bite the bullet on that one, and buy a
new one.  I hate when stuff like that happens, and hate it even more
because it was preventable.

I pulled over to the correct parking area, and shortly thereafter, a
mobile home the size of an aircraft carrier pulled in carrying the whole
DMC Houston gang.  I told James Espey about the lost torsion bar... and
he asked me which side.  I told him driver's side and they all cringed.
It seems they are in short supply,  (Anybody got one they can part with
by the way?)

So, licking my wounds, I went back to the hotel, checked in, and headed
off to the reception.  It was a very nice event.  I won't go into much
detail... it's getting late, I'm really drained after today.

I stole a beer glass from the bar at the hotel here, and I have my fuel
pump sitting in it to try and clean out any goop that may have gotten
sucked up in there.  Hopefully, it'll break free and start working again
tomorrow.  What a day.

To wrap up, it's really nice walking through a parking garage where
every other car is a D.  That's the way the world -should- be.  =)

 Hello Joe,


	We were wondering when we would hear from you? all our e-mails were
bounced plus
we have been having some serious problems with our Internet site. We
received your post card
just today.

	The current up date is that all kits are complete and those not yet
shipped are waiting for
manuals and box art. So - Your two kits are sitting hear on a shelf. Your
kits are safe and just waiting their turn. Unfortunately I have been
swamped by work involved in retiring from the software business and
consequently had very little time to complete the kits. So the time I had
thought
it would take to complete the kits is no longer a possibility. The best I
can do at the moment is assure you that you have a kit and it will get
finished and shipped as soon as possible. That said
next week I am taking the first vacation in 8 years, it's not a big deal
just 5 days at a place known as Carmel by the Sea, a few days of diving and
hot tubs.....

	If you have moved you might confirm your shipping address.

Thanks

David, I don't believe the three adjustment screws do anything on the

John/ list,

 Jaguar part number for rear brake pads is JLM 1513..however the cost in UK
is about 50 !
At other local brake specialist, Lockheed LP 133's are only 14, whilst Apec
PAD557 are only 12.
Ask for pads to fit Jaguar XJ6 Series 3 1979-86. This of course for the REAR
on the Delorean.
 The front are the same as Ford Cortina of the early 80's, and only about 6
set in uk!

Lee,
It was good to see your message in the DML.   Like Joe I have not heard back
from you.  So I am assuming my kit is also with the bunch that are waiting
for manuals and box art.   My build code is 024/86.   My shipping address
will be:

David Olson
Bay Area Medical Center
3100 Shore Drive
Marinette, WI  54143

Could you let me know if this is the case?

Thank you,
David

I just found out about the Cleveland show, I can't believe I had it
marked for next
week for the past year. Is there anyway that we can get to the dinner
tonight?
It's about 5 hours from here. I have been waiting two years for this and
can't
believe I got the wrong week. I even looked under Cleveland events and
couldn't find it.

I was wondering if anyone knows what has become of the DMC Plant in 
Ireland.  Is it used for anything today, or is it empty?  
Furthermore, we all know where the SS body dies are, but what 
happened to the rest of the equipement that was used by DMC. 

post it or email me at: tjb229_at_dml_psu.edu

still have the dinner at Crawford (with John DeLorean) to go for this
evening.  Check it out at www.babbtechnology.com/delorean.  Let me know what

Subject: Delorean For Sale

    I purchased my Delorean shortly after the facility was closed in Orange 
County, Ca. My car was one of 43 that was seized and sold by the bank.  I got 
to choose the one I wanted.
    It has been stored inside since 1985.  It always performed well and I had 
no major problems.  I had it serviced regularly by trained Delorean tech's 
who had previously worked at the facility.
    I have my own stock of parts for this car; front fenders, "T" panel; rear 
quarter panels w/glass; both doors w/windows, Louver & engine cover; 
instrument panel, steering wheel, spare tires, weather stripping, lots of 
interior parts and on and on and on.
    I want to sell it all, together . . . the car and all the parts.  I will 
sell it all for 25K.  If you do not like the price, don't respond.  At this 
time, I am not motivated to sell the parts separately.  I will answer any 
questions about the car and parts via email.  I will have an inventory list 
available within the coming week.

     My delorean fan blows, but it seems very weak...even full blast is a

heard the DeLorean's fan could blow you head off. What could be the problem? 
Thanks for the help!
