Subject: Temperatures


   I am looking to find information on the temperatures created by the PRV 
engine. I believe the temp experienced by the muffler system is in the area 
of 500 degrees.   Does anyone out there know if this is close or not?  If you 
have any concrete information in this area would you please e-mail.

Bill

I owned a Vega since new and had more than 110K miles on it prior to selling 
it in good condition.  One of the secret of keeping any car running for a 
long time is maintenance.  I religiously change oil and filter in the Vega 
every 2000 miles and it had been a reliable car.  The only problem I had was 
body rust but that was common for cars in those days. I have no complain at 
all for the Vega or the D and thanks Mr. DeLorean.

James,

I know it has been a while since you e-mailed us about this, but I thought
that I would check with you to see if you had any keys for my car -
VIN#2345.

Thanks,

Sean Howley

Subject: Oxygen Sensor

We are checking the operation of our oxygen sensor using a dwell 
meter as described in the manual. The dwell meter we have has ranges 
for six and eight cylinder engines. Inasmuch as this meter was 
designed for setting old fashioned point ignition do we need to use a 
multiplier on the guage reading to get an accurate dwell angle for 
the Lambda system? With the car warm, on the eight cylinder scale we 
are getting readings of 10-12 degrees. We understand the normal 
reading should be 35-45 degrees.

Try mounting the "command module" inside the left pontoon.  It will be out
of site and about 12" further away.

Subject: [DML] Cruise control installation


Santa brought a cruise control for my car this year and I am in the process
of installing it and have a question for the group. The throttle cable from
the command module is about 12" too long. Cutting the cable seems the
logical answer but then I lose the ball end and also risk pinching the cable
jacket. I tried making a loop but then its too short. Any suggestions????

Subject: Delorean and his past projects(even his worst projects WERE WINNERS)

   
  [ MODERATOR"S NOTE: I think the Chevy Vega thing has used enough space in a DeLorean newsletter so I'm ending the thread with this post]
     
 
  





Comparing a DeLorean to a Chevy Vega is both an anachromism and 
ludicrous!
(I bought a Vega for my wife years ago and that clap trap tincan was 
by far
the worst car I have ever owned!)


To be fair with Delorean and his Vega,they were acutally GREAT cars to
modify,for race car purposes(Drag Racing or Street Racing)in fact
(believe it or not) there are some,chevy vegas that have a book value 
in access of $50,000,(Motion Perforence built vegas and Yenko built 
vegas)Also they were great cars for v-8 conversions,that would 
become/ turn 12 second ets in the Quarter mile,with a basic STOCK 
body and frame,try that with a Delorean, also a lot
of Pro stock racing was done in Vega Bodies turning 8 second  times 
in the
200++ mph quarter mile.(Grumpy Jenkins Pro Modified Chevy Vega,(AND 
many many others)that Blew away all the competion for years to come)
They were the poor mans A.C. Shelby Cobra,as a Big block chevy would 
fit nicely in the engine bay,and setup correct you could have 
yourself a 9sec.street sleeper.So even when Delorean was in charge of 
a "claptrap Tin can" it turned out for the BEST.

Subject: Turn Signal.

Can someone explain how the turn signal cancel mechanism works? Is it 
accomplished by the white plastic collar that is on the steering column and 
indexes to the steering wheel. It has a nub on one side of it but not the 
other. There is no part number for this collar that I can find.
Thanks Steve

Subject: Hurt D for sale, please save!

  Dear List,
  Below is a link to pics of a hurt D that needs a new home. Please 
do NOT visit this link if you are easily upset at images of hurt D's 
(I cried when I visited). The car is selling for $7,500. That is all 
the info I have at this time. I would buy this car and save it if I 
could but sadly do not have the money at this time.
