Depending on the actual damage the condenser coil may be repairable.
The procedure for removing and replacing the coil is N:08:09-:10. It
involves removing the radiater! Once you have the coil out take it to
a large A/C shop that does a lot of automotive work. If they are
knowledgeable enough they may be able to either repair the coil or
send it out to a service that specializes in such repairs. You can
also find companies yourself in Hemmings Motor News that repairs
coils. If the leak is at one of the hose connections make sure that
the threads are not stripped on the hose end. If they are you will
have to replace the hose or have the end repaired. Snap-On has a kit
for rethreading damaged hose ends so a large shop might be able to
repair. You will probably need to go to a shop anyway to have the
system evacuated, leak tested and recharged after you reinstall the

Remove the distributer cap and wipe out any moisture. Make sure all
spark plug wires are firmly seated on the plugs. If you still have
trouble it sounds like your old ignition wires are breaking down. Even
though they are now dry from previous arcing they are now carbon
tracked. In this case replace the cap, rotor, 6 ignition wires and the
spark plugs. You could also have knocked a vacuum line loose so while
you are working on the motor check them too. You might also need an
ignition coil and wire.

Subject: Re: oil pressure guage
This is the way the stock O.E.M. oil presure gauge seems to work. You
can watch the oil pressure with a mechanical guage to verify the
engine is O.K. If you want the oil gauge to be more responsive contact
PNWDMC- Marty Maier. He is selling a sending unit that will make the
gauge work like it should.

Subject: Cooling fan removal
I just noticed that one of my cooling fans is spinning free on its
motor shaft. Then I noticed that removing the motor to repair this
doesn't look like it is going to be any fun at all. A thorough search
of the archives reveals occasional grumblings to this effect but no
definitive statement on the easiest way to remove the motor without
disassembling half of the front end in the process.
Can anybody help?

I got it nearly 8 months ago, and I paid what D-1 Asked.
As for Mr. Rooney's comments on DeLorean One "As a side note if anyone is
interested, it looks as though DeLorean
One pretty much "cut and pasted", then switched a couple of words
around from DMC Houston's advertisement page for refurbished
DeLorean's onto their web site."
DeLorean one has had the refurbished DeLorean section on their page for
many years, DMC Houston just recently added that section when they
changed their site around. So Actually DMC Houston "cut and pasted" from
DeLorean One's site.
Also The cars are not purchased from private retailers. DeLorean One
owns the cars that are rebuilt. They are completely torn down and rebuilt
with NOS parts. Mine was owned by DeLorean One for nearly 3 years before
I purchased it.
