Subject: Re: Where should my clutch grab?

Payne, I installed a new clutch in my car about 4 weeks ago, 51,000 miles car 
# 11004. I used to feel the clutch was weak and was engaging a little of the 
top. I adjusted the top of the peddle screw for more travel but after 
installing the new clutch, it grabs a little off the bottom with plenty of 
travel at the top. No, clutch peddle adjustment needed. My feeling is if you 
need more adjustment than what the screw allows at the top, then you may be 
ready for a new clutch. The new adjustment peddle linkage that Gradys sells 
may be great to have,  but if it's needed, you may be covering up a problem 
before it happens. Clutches won't last forever. If you keep driving the car 
and the clutch is slipping, then when it goes you may hurt the flywheel which 
will cost more money.

Subject: Last call for Yokos

A while back someone reported a rumor that our beloved Yokohama AVS 
Intermediate tires were soon to be discontinued.  Apparently this has 
come to pass.  Last week I went to to order a set and 
discovered to my dismay that (unlike 3 weeks earlier) the front tires 
are no longer available (as of today they still have the rears). I 
called the friendly people at and they said that the 
tire was discontinued and they could no longer get new stock. They 
gave me the customer service number at Yokohama Tires, who confirmed 
this claim.  They said they were receiving a lot of irate calls. I 
asked if a replacement tire was in the works. They replied that they 
thought so, but have received no concrete information. They said that 
this suggests that a new product was at least a year away.

In a mild panic, I started calling around everywhere.  Things were 
looking grim until I finally called my local Sears Auto Center, who 
were able to special order a set of 4 tires, which I just picked up.

Sooo, if you will be needing tires soon,  you might want to act quickly.

Once again SEDOC is hosting the bi-annual DeLorean cruise-in at Lake 
Laniers Olympic rowing/kayaking venue September 15-16. This years 
event is packed full of great attendance prizes, tech sessions, food 
and friends. Like the 1999 event there will be many pre-registration 
prizes which include door struts, sheepskin seat covers, tool kits, 
an alternator, and much much more. Also like the previous event we 
have been envited back to Road Atlanta to take laps before the 
historical car race. For a chance to be eligable for the attendance 
prizes registration must be postmarked by Aug. 31. One lucky entry 
will also recieve free lodging during the event. For more information 
and online registration please visit and click on the 
cruise-in link about half-way down on the center of the page. A new 
feature this year allows regisrants to pay by credit card on-line. 
Please email me with any and all questions that the cruise-in site 
does not help you with.
Thanks and hope to see ya there

Subject: Eurofest Photos of Test Track


Just wanted to say a public thank you to David Swingle for allowing me to
use some of his Belfast Eurofest photos. I've decided to send a letter to
the Belfast Mayor (cc to Planning Dept. and Tourism Board) pointing out what
a lost opportunity it would be if they allowed the Test Trak to be

As well as being an asset for the local communities in terms of matured
landscaped open space, it is also a unique industrial heritage feature for
N.Ireland, and a possible tourist curiosity. A letter to the Mayor can't
hurt especially as the city is presently carrying out the 'Metro-plan'
identifying such landmark and urban design features and opportunities. There
is also ample space around the factory for their required extension.

Those who attended Eurofest and took photos at the track, did anyone capture
me driving my (reg. ANZ 2047) DeLorean? I'd really like a jpeg!

Regards,           IAN
