Subject: Clinton in Belfast

Somebody asked about getting Clinton to come to the Eurofest.  I don't
think mail sent to president_at_dml_whitehouse.gov will get to Clinton anymore
even if you ask really really nicely, but you may want to give his wife
a buzz.  I think every now and then she may speak to him.  I found no
direct e-mail address, but there's a form at
http://clinton.senate.gov/email_form.html ... Good luck.

G'Day Ian,
          There was a Right Hand Drive De Lorean in a museum here, but it has since been bought by a fellow sydneysider.
As for things to see, I don't know where to start. Opera house and the harbour bridge would be a good place to start off with.
E-Mail me privately and we could set something up or I could pass on the details of who owns the former museum car

Best wishes,
Andrew Prentis
SYDNEY

Subject: Re: cooling problem

If you can get the fans to run by jumping the switch then the trouble 
lies in the switch. Are you waiting till the switch gets hot enough? 
Do you have the old style pipe with the switch on the top? and it is 
in an air bubble? Maybe there isn't enough coolant or the water pump 
is airbound and needs to be bled because you aren't circulating 
coolant.

Subject: Re: A/C Belt

It is possible that someone changed the water pump and the pulley is 
not in the right spot on the shaft. If you have the "bolt on" pulley 
you can readjust it without removing the water pump. If it isn't the 
bolt-on you will have to remove the water pump and send it to a 
Delorean vender to move or remove and put the proper one on in the 
right spot. Without the proper tools to press on and off you will ruin 
the pulley and most shops don't have the right adapters to do it which 
may explain why you perhaps don't have the correct pulley.

Subject: Re: How many Deloreans?

I know that the first DeLorean made is in a museum or something. If you go
to www.entermyworld.com you can find a sweeeeeet DeLorean site with a
downloadable video clip of the first one made. And I thought I read that
8,700 made, basicly 9,000 (That's what I tell friends who ask).

Subject: Delorean Manuals "Newbie Manual"

Instead of creating a "Newbie" manual I think they should first of all 
get the Workshop and Parts manuals at least. Even if they themselves 
don't understand all of it at least they can refer to it and have 
their mechanic use it to familiarize himself with the car. The manuals 
also have some of the simple safety hints and many troubleshooting 
tips that can answer many of the simple questions that appear on the 
list from time to time. The manuals won't make anyone a mechanic but 
they will make an owner more knowledgeable about their car. It should 
be one of the first things they order when they first get their car 
and then place the first order for parts. Creating a "Dummies" manual 
for the Delorean is a major undertaking and there will be no reward 
for the many hours of effort that will be required. By looking through 
the archives and talking to other owners new owners will quickly come 
"up to speed". I also recomend that new owners join a local group if 
available and go to meet other owners and venders. In 5 minuetes of 
looking at a car an experienced mechanic can see things that an 
ordinary mechanic wouldn't even notice and it is not easy trying to 
help people by remote control. Nothing takes the place of hearing and 
seeing for yourself.

Subject: Re: Amateur radio (was: On another note...!)

It would be cool if we could start a DeLorean discussion group on the radio.
Les, if you want to try to start an on-the-air discussion group, that would
be great.  But as of now, I have no equipment to get on the air.  I haven't
used my license in probably 20 years.  If it is hard to get an internet
DeLorean chat going, then imagine how much harder it would be to get one
going on amateur radio.  But it's worth a try.  If there are any ham
operators out there, speak up!
