All written works are copyrighted by the mere fact that they are written
down.  Some written works have registered copyrights, which means that the
holder of the copyright has taken the extra step of filling out some forms
and sending a copy of the work to the copyright office.  Violators of
registered copywritten material can and often are sued because it is
relatively easy to show that a work is copied or derivative.  It's a little
harder to sue in the case of an unregistered copyright unless the theft is
obvious, which in the case of a drawing, is straightforward.  The easiest
way around this is to ask permission of the owner of the material and to
add a statement of attribution to the copy.

Think of it this way.  Without  copyrights, I could start a new organization
called DeLorean Association of Owners with a magazine called DeLorean
The entire content could be DeLorean World with a new cover.

Subject: Re: Engine Problems

If you can get the engine to run at all I think you will find that the 
problem is in the lambda circuit and the frequency valve. When the 
engine is running you should hear a loud buzzing like an angry cricket 
comming from the right side valve cover. If you do not, check for 
power in the lambda circuit-lambda relay. Replace the origional fuel 
distributer, the one you put on is WAY out of calibration. You need to 
adjust the mixture screw if you want it to run the car and you need an 
emmision anylizer to do it right. Change the oil after about 1000 
miles and replace the spark plugs and wires. Flush the brakes with 
Castrol dot 4 GTLMA brake fluid, change the anti freeze, trans oil, 
final drive oil, wash out the windscreen washer bottle, make sure the 
drains in the heater are clear. Inspect the c-v boots, lube the 
parking brake cables and speedo cables. Test the cooling system for 
leaks it should hold 15 psi for 15 min, I would probably replace all 
of the hoses. It is a lot of work to wake up a "D" that has been 
hibernating but if you don't do all of the work now you will find 
yourself doing it later.
