Jim,

Although the cooling system will get by with one cooling fan the AC
condenser requires both fans to operate efficiently. Additionally, one fan
operation means there is no back-up if the other fan fails.

Subject: Re: Re: AC and fanzilla question

John,

Here are some corrections concerning your statements.

John said:
"All the relay's in the De Lorean are resistive load and are prone to fail".

DMC Joe:
The DeLorean relay's are not prone to fail. The early version RPM relay and
factory installed door lock relays are the only relays with a higher than
average failure rate.

John:
"Moisture and underrated contacts is why a lot of fuel pumps fail".

DMC Joe:
DeLorean fuel pump failures are the result of dirt, rust, or contaminated
fuel; not electric's.

John:
"The fuel pumb burning up the, I think #7 fuse, I have that fixed also."

DMC Joe:
The fuse #7 failures are strictly related to an under rated fuse holder,
this common problem is easily corrected with the installation of a heavy
duty in-line fuse holder, not a circuit modification.

John:
"But it seems that a lot of De Lorean owners have only seen one way to
approach problems with the cars and have been kept in the dark. I think I
have opened a lot of eyes ..."

DMC Joe:
Not so; the DML offers a variety of solutions for most problems, just check
the archives.

   My car has two torn CV boots, they haven't been driven on that 
much. The foreign shop down the road quoted me $470 including labor 
to take care of doing the joints. I was wondering if that is a fair 
price, or if any of you have done this before and have an estimate of 
how much it will cost.

Don't the know the answer to your question.  I do know, however, that the
maintenance free batteries from NAPA, EXCIDE, INTERSTATE and OPTIMA all fit
in the space very nicely and have both top and side posts on them.  The
side posts allow for connection with the existing battery wires without any
tugging or tweaking.

If you are insistent upon DELCO, ask the dealer.  If he/she doesn't know,
go with one of the above.

Subject: Re: AC and fanzilla question STANDARDIZATION

IMHO it is best to standardize on a fix. This way it is easy to 
troubleshoot and everyone knows how it is supposed to work ( the fan 
light comes to mind). With all due respect to John where will he be in 
a few years if his device doesn't work? I like to think Mr. Zilla and 
Rob Grady will still be around! If you are playing with your car and 
money is as big an issue as John thinks then stay with the jumper 
wires, but if you are like most then although the Zillas are pricey I 
believe they are worth the money if for no other reason then their 
proven reliability and service. Don't forget some of the money goes 
toward continuing developement of future Zillas. (Where is 
Transzilla!) If we don't continue buying Zillas there won't be anymore 
and there would be no incentive for further product developement. We 
Delorean owners are lucky to have someone like Mr.Zilla to help us 
keep these cars going, some car Marques could use his skills yet they 
have no one like him.

Subject: Why soldering paste

Thank you for not jumping on me when I first mentioned it.  I'll explain
very briefly:  it makes a better joint much quicker.  Why do you want a
quicker joint?  So that you don't burn the circuit board or other item
you're working on... get on, do it, get off..  I've done a ton of
circuit board work and figure as soon as I mention paste I'm going to
get jumped on over contamination or some such.  Whatever, I'll never
tell you anything I'm not sure of and have not had great success with
over a prolonged period of time.

How I got onto it?  First, you have to remember that everyone has
something to impart, i.e., you can learn from the dumbest, often
something of such value you that it can impact the rest of your life.

In the early days of TV repair, fuses (the little cartridge type, not
the current ones as used in the car) snapped into sockets, but pretty
soon they changed to wire-in fuses, partly because they didn't want set
owners to get involved and partly because it was cheaper to use wire
rather than a socket.  Ok, here was the problem, when you went out on a
service call and the set needed a fuse but was wired in and you had all
sizes but without the wires you had to make a return trip...not cool,
right!  Trying to solder a wire to a fuse can make you look very inept,
the metal inside the fuse cap,  melts at about the same temp as the
solder and the end cap pops off.  I was one of the early hot-shot TV
repairmen who thought he knew just about everything, but not the fuse
bit.  Along comes the guy who knows very little but knows this one bit I
need, how to solder a wire onto a fuse without popping the end.  Use
paste!  That worked great, solved the problem and that bit of wisdom has
served me well to this date, hope it helps you.

I ended up putting a bit of solder on all of the tail light bulb bases
yesterday, just the shells, no centers as yet.  First one I wrote about,
John told me I should have done them all, he was right.  I had a friend
step on the brake pedal and stop light was out on that side too.  After
I finished that side,  turned out I had 2 stop lights so did the other
side.  That side had one working and ended up with 2 also.  Went from 1
to 4 in one day.  I know there's a new board that can relieve you of
doing this but I've always been a fixer and I like doing it.  I also
gave the base of each bulb a shot of WD-40 before installing it back in
the socket, ditto the connector.

Hey List,

       Today is the day that I have been waiting 9 months for.  I was finally 
able to lower the body onto the frame with the help of my brother, father, 
couple of my brothers friends, and fellow De Lorean owner Josh  from 
Connecticut.  I think I might have to raise the body up a little bit again in 
order to get the front mounting holes to line up.  My brother works at a 
tranny shop, so I am sure I might be able to use his hydraulic lift there and 
lift the body up that way.  For some reason there are huge spaces between all 
4 tires and the fenders and quarter panels, everyone is telling me that it 
should settle down, but I am not sure.  Thats all for now.  I will be sure to 
send a post to the DML if I progress any more.

Later,

Not difficult, just messy. Will probably take most of the day. Latex

I am currently looking for a "cheap" way to add power. The most obvious route 
to me would be to add turbos or a supercharger, but I have several questions 
concerning these. Firstly, the cheapest way (maybe not in the end, but to 
start with) would be pulling a supercharger off of some wrecked buick but 
this brings up many questions. Can I just make the fittings to force air in 
the induction manifold? Will it just bolt on with minor mods, like an extra 
alternator? THen comes the turbo, with all this talk about the DMC engine 
upgrades, is anyone willing to part with their used Turbo, or turboed engine?

Jack,

     Maybe the vacuum line that connects to the water valve that circulates 
hot water into the heater core isn't connected.  It could have easily been 
disconnected by accident.  To see if that is the case....when looking 
directly at the engine compartment, you will see a very small vacuum line 
coming from the drivers side of the firewall leading to the middle of the 
back of the engine.  That is the vacuum line that goes from the mode switch 
to the water valve telling it to open or shut depending on the position the 
mode switch is in.  Hope that helps.

Since you did get air moving out of the defrost position, then it might not
be the mode switch, like it was for me.
What I did for heat until I got my new mode switch was disconnect the vacuum
line to the hot water valve. This guy sits at the front of the engine on the
rightish side. When the mode switch is on Max AC the switch applies vacuum
to this unit and he closes the valve and does not allow hot air to go to the
heater unit in the dash.
So check that line for vacuum.

This is a very good value, and I hate to see him sell this car.  I'm posting it here in the hopes that a Delorean lover will get it and appreciate all that he has done to this car over the years.

If that were the case, then he would always have heat since when 
there is vacum present at the valve it keeps it shut. No vacum opens 
that valve.

Subject: Zilla Reliability


    I have been very satisfied with the operation and performance of all of 
the Zilla products.  The Zilla's were installed in my car about 3 years ago.  
I am happy to report no problems (ZERO) with the DeLorean, or any of the 
related components such as, door locks, fuel gauge, and the A/C fans that 
integrate the Zilla products. The Zilla products have been very reliable and 
worth every bit of the retail price.
    In addition, during a DeLorean car show in Richmond, I witnessed another 
list member DeLorean "fan fail jumper wire with inline fuses" severely melt, 
burn and ALMOST catch on fire.  
    The Fanzilla solved the problem that the factory dropped the ball on.  
The temporary "fix" that the factory introduced & suggested in place of the 
blue Fan Fail relay was not how the car was supposed to be produced. Do you 
really think that an expensive car like the DMC was manufactured and sold to 
the public with three wires fused together inside of a relay compartment to 
make the fans operate? (Of course Not!) The factory didn't care, or didn't 
have the money to solve many of the electrical bugs that Rob Grady & Bob 
Zilla have been able to solve.
