Subject: High Hood

Hi all

Iwant to, need to adjust my hood, Now that the car is fully back together the hood sits to high above the fenders. It lines up perfectly with the front facia and progresivly gets higher as you get closer the wind screen.

From what I can see there is no room for adjustment.

What can I do?

Subject: Re: High Hood

Actually the hood is quite adjustable. There are rubber stops at each 
upper corner that can be screwed up and down into the body, and I 
believe that the latch is also slightly adjustable. 

Did you have the fenders off the car? You may have reinstalled them 
missing the usual pile of shims between the fiberglass and the 
fenders. I've seen cars with as much as 1 cm of spacers/washers in 
between the fender and the fiberglass at the top edge. The production 
tolerances on the fiberglass underbody were far from perfect.

Dear Wayne,
     The Autotalk Module that I mentioned is from a 1989 ad in 
Delorean World. The company or person that was selling it may not be 
at the address in the ad, but good luck.
The address is; Autotalk, 447 Lambert Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94306, 
phone number was 415/325-7074. The price in the ad is $249.95 plus 
$5.00 for shipping. Remember this is a 1989 ad.

Subject: Re: RELATED? Electrical Problems

John and Diane,
     As to the speedometer, it is not electrical, but a mechanical 
system. The most common problem would be that the angle drive out of 
the driver's front wheel has broken or one of the cables has broken. 
Thes are the most common problems. I have been lucky and not had 
these problems. However another possibility is that the cap that fits 
over the speedo cable that comes out of the axile is slipping and not 
spinning. This would usually cause intermintent readings and bouncing 
around of the needle. If this is the problem, putting something that 
is compressable over the cap before putting the wheel back on may 
give you the pressure on the cap to keep it turning. What you put 
over the cap must be compressable otherwise the wheel may not bolt on 
properly and wobble and cause extra stress on the studs.
    As to the window problem, first try switching the window 
switches. If the window works now the switch is the problem. If the 
window still doesn't work, you will probably haveto take the door 
panel off and trouble shoot from there.
     As to the turn signals, hopefully someone else can help you 
there.
Happy Holidays,
Gary Masie

The program is called "Legends of the Road", and it was on 
ESPN2. I was price checking parts on the internet, and came 
across the ad for it on the De Lorean Services website! I 
immediately changed over to the channel, but missed the intro!

Nice format of the show as it was a Q&A session with owners 
describing everything. Good interview with DMC Joe, and was 
interesting to publicly hear about the "Cave Paintings" behind the 
door panels for the first time :)

Just wish that we could have gotten a heads-up on the show 
before hand so we could all catch it...

The program you are referring to is indeed titled "Legends of the Road" and
airs nightly at 5:30 PM EST on ESPN 2. The program was recorded in late
summer, in addition to myself, Ben Davis from SEDOC was also featured.
Although the production quality leaves much to be desired the content was
complimentary, informative, and left a very positive image of the DeLorean.

Copies of the program will be available at the DeLorean Services On Line
Store December 21.

Seasons Greetings

Subject: Re: High Hood

You may have to remove the locking mechanism and elongate the holes to 
get more adjustment. Screw the two rubber stop screws all the way in 
and set the rear height of the hood with the lock. After setting the 
rear height then run the two screws up so that they just touch the 
hood. They aren't so much there for adjusting the height of the hood 
as they are there for catching in the restraining brackets in the 
event of a crash to keep the hood from flying open or going through 
the windscreen. Check that the restraining brackets on the hood line 
up so they will go into the screws. As long as you are working on the 
hood latch it is a good idea to add a backup safety cable so that if 
the latch release cable ever breaks you can still get the hood open. 
The fenders should be lined up with the doors first and then the hood, 
(bonnet), to the fenders. Make sure the latch bar on the hood lines up 
and goes into the latch nicely without rubbing and wearing on the lock 
mechanism. You know you have it lined up when you can get the hood to 
lock just by dropping it from being open just a few inches and when 
you pull the hood release the hood pops open. You shouldn't have to 
use two hands to open the hood (one to pull the release and the other 
to lift the hood). If it doesn't pop up either the latch bar isn't 
lined up right or you need to tighten the smaller spring inside the 
lock.

Subject: Re: High Hood

that's an easy one. go get a box of washers and use them to shim the fenders
up from inside the trunk. you will have to play with it to get them right
and be careful not to overtighten the screws. i even had to get some longer
screws to fit in some plages. but its really that simple.
