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 
condenser coil.

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.
