Subject: RE: 3.0 Eagle motors

The two cars retrofited by Pacific Rim were both done because the DMC motors
were shot, and the owners wanted to try something different.  I also think,
however, that the costs got away from them somewhat.  I know what the first
one totalled, but will let the owner tell that if he wants to.  The second
is underway at this time.  As for the DMC heads not fitting on the Eagle
block, I can't answer that.  John Lane at Pacific Rim thought they would, so
we'll have to wait and see how he accomplishes that.  I do know he said he
would be using the even fire cams and alloy rockers in the DMC heads.  I'll
keep everyone posted.

Subject: Re: Where to finance a car

The first and best place to try to get a loan to buy a Delorean would 
be the bank you are currently doing business with. If you have some 
money with them and a good history of payments you should be able to 
get a personal loan with the car as collateral. As an alternative if 
you have significant assets try to get a personal loan, don't call it 
a car loan, some banks don't understand collecter cars and will want 
to make it a car loan. It also pays to shop because some banks give a 
better rate than others. Don't forget to negotiate the costs of the 
loan and try not to have any pre-payment penalties so if you have to 
you can sell the car without extra costs. It always pays to try to 
have at least a casual relationship with an officer in the bank, at 
the very least say hello to them whenever you are in, they have the 
authority to waive all kinds of charges for good customers or at least 
the ones they like.

I think it might be very interesting to see where this can go. You are 
right, it hardly seems worth it just for 20 hp. But think of the 
possibilities if during the swap you were to improve the 3.0 eagle 
engine. You are now starting at a higher level of power with the room 
for more. I would think that performance parts are more readily 
available for the 3.0 and there are more people knowledgeable on it. 
Any time you deviate from a stock configuration it is going to be 
expensive especially the first time but you are not doing it to save 
money, a Delorean PRV engine can probably be bought cheaper and 
installed at less cost, and time then trying this.(Even the new and 
improved version?)

Subject: Temporary Import of DMC to USA

Non-USA DMCers,

Over the past months I have been organising for my right-hand-drive DeLorean
to be shipped to California from HongKong for a full restoration. My idea is
to have some basic work done on the car using parts from my spares-car. Then
get one of the DMC dealers to refurbish her properly.

I am now enquiring about importation of the vehicle to the USA. Has anyone
else on the List "been there, done that, and bought the T-shirt!" If so I
would be delighted to hear your comments. My brain is becoming overloaded
with Customs requirements, Environ.Protection's requirements EPA3620-1,  and
Highways Dept. requirements DOT HS-7, etc, etc, etc!!!

Hopefully when she is complete I can get her to a DMC Show and let the
'local DMCers' see the steering wheel on the "wrong side!"

Cheers,             IAN

The DeLorean get together is in the works for sometime in Mid March. I hope 
that this enough time for everyone to schedule a Saturday get together. Since 
some owners are coming from different directions, I thought of meeting at the 
Lincoln Memorial or over by the Smithsonian on the Mall. 

    The Tucker collection is Private. The owner wants to demonstrate the cars 
and the Tucker car features. The presentation is long, but you will walk away 
comparing the Tucker story & DeLorean story. Oh, the cars are similar too. As 
each Tucker was completed, the engineering dept. had production line changes 
made to the next group of Tuckers. Similar to DMC. You can take as many 
pictures as you want.

Subject: Accounting Paper For College Class

Hello Whomever

I am currently an Accounting student at Marshall University which is located
in Huntington, West Virginia.  For my Senior paper, I have chosen to do it
on the DeLorean Motor Corp.  This paper will be a 15 minute Power Point
presentation.  I will talk about the start up, what happened with the
company, why the car was so special, and what caused the company to
flounder.

Does anybody happen to have any financial statements regarding DMC, or even
John DeLorean himself?  Do you know where to get them?   The reason I am
asking this is because I need to talk about the factors that lead to the
dismay of the company.

I already talked to the SEC, but they don't know what I am talking about.

Does anybody happen to have any professional looking picture of the car,
please email them.  I will use it as a background.  I have also been looking
for a .gif in which the car doors open, but couldn't find one.

If you could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.

If you have anything, you could email me privately.

This is could be a project worth considering. I'd rather do this then 
go with the Land Rover engine. Better parts, easier to get, less 
expesnive. It also MIGHT fit under the standard hood unlike the Rover 
engine.

Of course you'll most likely have to chance just about everything 
else. IE trans, cooling, etc.

I would only do this on one that needed comeple mechanical overhaul 
of course becuase of this.

Now who can actually do it. I'll look for the dead car.

Hi,

I bought the Delorean with the TV in the dash (Vin #5641). I'm 
currently building a web site about her restoration. I would agree 
with all comments so far, she was a heap. Almost not worth restoring 
but I couldn't let her rot and the price was right at the time. I've 
completely stripped the car down (including the paint - which was 
a "glitter" effect) and I am slowly bringing her back to life (with a 
LOT of help).

I shall post more details about the site when it becomes live....very 
soon!

If anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer them!

Yes, she did have a TV...for about 5 minutes.....

Subject: Re: 3.0 Eagle motor

I've been looking into the 3.0 litre PRV-6 from the Eagle Premier as 
an engine swap to see what options are available. While I am content 
with the power my existing engine has, I'm always interested in 
examining possible options for increasing power. So, I naturally 
looked to the next largest engine on the list comparable to mine.

I don't wish to swap out the engine for either a Chevy, or a 
Northstar. I myself do not care for the Chevy motor, and the 
Northstar is WAY too expensive. Aside from cost, I have also seen a 
few unfavorable reviews of the Northstar on the internet. I know the 
Northstar has the "limp-home" feature, but if my car has that kind of 
an emergency, I would rather have the car towed home then risk damage 
to it. Asides from that, I don't want to have to install a load of 
electronics to control the motor. Simplicity and common Volvo 
components are better in the event that the car would have to be 
worked on. If nothing else, I want to maintain the car's heritage of 
the PRV-6.

I do like the looks of the Eagle Premier engine, but it still doesn't 
look like it may be the appropriate choice. Myself, I perfer the K-
Jetronic fuel injection as opposed to EFI. IMHO it is simpler to 
tune, maintain, and to troubleshoot. Plus I would much rather stick 
with the current ignition components and electronics that the 
DeLorean currently uses. Since the 3.0 version is evenfireing, this 
doesn't look like it could be done. Unless of course the D's 
crankshaft and valvetrain could be mated to the PRV block. Even here 
I do not if if this could either be done, or if it might hinder any 
performance gains. What I am mainly looking for is the increasd size 
and compression of the 3.0 engine to be applied to the DeLorean.

Since I haven't seen either a final cost or any dyno results, it is 
hard to determine weather or not the PRV swap is an efficient way to 
go. According to the DOC UK's web site, the free-flow exhaust system 
would be a larger performance increase on it's own then the entire 
3.0 litre engine. Then again, the hp rating on the 3.0 motor could be 
due to a simular situation as the 2.8 in the D. Perhaps it too was 
subject to even stricter emissions laws. Maybe there is a potential 
for a good deal of power output there... But utill the final results 
are in, so far the best way to go appears to be the 198 hp conversion 
from DMC Houston.

im in the process of buying my first delorean, and i should soon be the 
proud owner of vin #980 if all goes well. anyway, i was just wondering if 
there are any delorean owners in hawaii, and what island/ city they are

get to know some of you sometime, and i hope to get atleast a few responces 
from this.

...and another thing, are there any good mechanics or certain shops that 
youve had some good experience with? ive found someone willing to work on 
the delorean who claims he's had some experience with the car, but you can 
never be too sure. i know you guys are out there, ive seen more than one 
delorean in honolulu, (who owns the red one!?!) its just a matter of getting 
in touch with you...

Subject: RE: 3.0 Eagle motors (and trannies)

I mention this every time the Eagle 3.0 engine comes up on the DML:

Because AMC designed the Premier to be a luxury car, it offered a smooth and
reliable version of the Renault automatic tranny which, at a glance, looked like
it might be modified to fit into a DeLorean.  It was an automatic with
*overdrive*.

As with other tranny swaps for the DeLorean, it would be necessary to find a way
to reverse its gearing.  I believe this has never been done successfully with
that particular gearbox, but a creative person who undertook such a project
might create a very unique and luxurious DeLorean.

If you swapped engines to increase horsepower, you might appreciate the
acceleration a few times a week.  But if you swapped the normal automatic for an
automatic with overdrive you could appreciate the decreased engine rev and
improved fuel economy every moment that you spent on the freeway.


I think the many problems with such an adaptation were discussed on the DML a
few months ago, but a quick search of the back issues turned up nothing.

you'll know the mechanics don't know anything about your car when you pull in 
for engine work, ask them if they've ever worked on a DeLorean before, and 
all the guys crowd around and say, 'oh yeah, a few times!'... then they walk

I understand that the stock DeLorean automatic transmission does not use a

to fit?  Is there such an animal available, and if installed, would it put
undue stress on the rest of the system?  I have an extra D transmission
sitting on my garage floor that got blown up from someone running too much
horse power to it from a Buick engine.  (That D has already been restored to
it's original configuration.  It was an engine swap that wasn't done right.)

Subject: Noisy fuel pump

Rob Grady was right....
Replacing my old noisy fuel pump with a new one doesn't make the new one any
less noisy.  When hot, it sounds like a seat belt buzzer.  It isn't peculiar
to my car either.  Coming back from a long trip in a two car DeLorean
convoy, Randy's fuel pump was really noisy too.

The longer the car runs, the more noise it makes.  The less fuel that is in
the tank, the sooner it gets hot, and the more noise it makes.

There seem to be 3 main sources that heat the fuel:
1) the radiator fans blowing hot air on the fuel tank.
2) fuel circulating through the fuel distributor.
3) fuel circulating through the control pressure regulator.

Can anyone say which is the most significant source of heat and what can be
done about it?

Rob mentioned making a heat shield to deflect hot air from the fuel tank.
Has anyone done this and can give advice on how to go about it?  And is it
effective?

If radiant heat isn't enough to warm up the control pressure regulator, it
has two electric heaters of its own, and ofcourse, thermally isolating it
isn't an option.

The fuel distributor could be thermally isolated better.  It looks like it
is insulated by an o-ring seal, yet it 'appears' to be held down by 3 screws
that are not properly shown in any of the OEM manuals.  Is this right?  It
looks like there could be room under the fuel distributor for a full size
insulating gasket, and the retaining screws could be made of a material that
has better insulating properties than steel.  An insulating adapter
extension ring could be made with an extension for the control plunger, but
the clearance for the engine cover is already pretty tight.

If all else fails, I am considering installing a transmission fluid cooler
in the low pressure fuel return line.  This might help cool things a bit.
Would this be nuts?  I'm not talking about doing anything REAL stupid like
mounting it in front of the radiator.  I'm thinking about mounting it next
to the accumulator where it would be protected inside the frame; although,
there isn't much air circulation in that area.  An electric fan would be a
bit much, and ducted air would be even more of a safety hazard.  Maybe
radiant dissipation would be sufficient.

Or maybe I'm just not playing the radio loud enough.

Other things I have considered is that the fuel suction line is conducting
vibration through to the bottom of the tank.  I'm using an OEM hose, so I
don't see this as being a significant contributing factor.

And don't go teasing me that this is too much candy for a nickel.  You guys
doing the 3.0 Eagle motor conversions are further out in left field than I
am!  And look at where I'm coming from :-)

Andy,

That reminds me of the guy with the fake air scoop on the trunk.  Maybe if I
started with a damaged hood, adding a faux air scoop could make room for a
rear tire or other large items if it didn't block the visibility too much.

Have you ever had anyone at a filling station ask where the engine is when
you have the trunk open?  How about someone make the upper half of a mock-up
engine and stick it in the trunk to confuse people at car shows?  Make it
real looking and label it as Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Tucker, Bell
Helicopter, Mr Fusion or whatever.  What a riot that would be!  Bad bad!

I agree.
In Australia where I live You would be lucky to see a D in the flesh
let alone on the highways. I think there are now 10 in the country and
there selling up to $110,000 aussie dollars (60,000US).
I live the dream through the DML and look forward to that one day that
I actually see a D for real.

This is just a general posting. I just wanted to say I
think everyone involved in the DeLorean movement is
very lucky.

Is the DelMarVa get together for members of an organization only or can 
anyone with a Delorean come?

They are a great tire. I purchased a new 93 Acura Integra GS. When the 
original XGT V-4 tires went after 20,000 miles, I purchased 2 sets of the XGT 
H-4. The difference was that the H rated lasted longer. I drove the car until 
I had 115,000 miles. 

However for the DeLorean the Pirelli P600 or the Yokohama AVS are a great 
tire for the car. I currently run the AVS intermediates on the DeLorean.
