Subject: Re: Cooling Fan doesnt kick on - SOMETIMES

Mike, I would make sure the system is full of coolant to the proper 
levels and after the car has had time to heat up, then bleed all the 
air out. Then watch the temperature gauge as the car heats up. If the 
otterstat isn't turning the fans on at about a needle width or so 
above the second line on the gauge, then there is something wrong in 
the electrical circuit. Could be circuit breaker, fan fail or 
otterstat. Not knowing what your car has in it, anything could be 
wrong.

Casey, I feel the transmission and clutch system can handle any HP 
you can put in the car. But what will happen if someone makes you mad 
and you forget the HP you have and you want to show off. CenterForce 
or standard, something will have to give. Better it be the clutch 
system. Because if you put in a better clutch and it holds then 
something in the transmission will give. I now have had 3 situations 
in manual trans where the clutch shaft has broken and striped the 
gears. PN#103071. Try to find one. Clutches are cheap. Stick with 
standard and let it be the Weakest Link.

Have you ever ridden in a 350+ HP automobile? They are *exceptionally*
uncomfortable (remember: performance and comfort are at two opposite
ends of the spectrum). Cam action beats you to death. You have to
shout to be heard. Scratch the word "idle" from your dictionary. Ever
notice no one drives "high performance" cars on a vacation?(would be
an endurance test). Horsepower is like everything else in life: best
used in moderation. Why don't you settle for 200 or so and spend the
rest of your development budget on an upgraded sound system YOU WILL
STILL BE ABLE TO HEAR.

Mark, The AC cycling has to do with the amount of warmer air moving over the 
evaporator coil inside the car, The Fan Fix and the Fan Zilla affect the 
cooling fans over the radiator for cooling the water and the condensor coil 
outside.

Subject: RE: How much HP will the tranny, cluch, and chassis take

Casey, I think I can address this.  My car is putting out about 300HP (see photo at www.delorean-parts.com) using a Centerforce clutch.  So far with fairly "brisk" driving there have been absolutely no clutch or chassis problems.  The weak point, as I found out the hard way, is the splined coupler between the transmission input shaft and mainshaft.  It is very soft metal and not splined all the way around.  It may be intended to act as a "fusible link", but in order to prevent a repeat I had a new fully-splined bulletproof coupler made by an aerospace machine shop.  However, it was quite difficult finding anyone who could do it.

Another weak point is the use of stock pistons in a supercharged car, but that's a story for another time.  Suffice it to say that new forged blower pistons have been installed...

As for those who doubt high horsepower output from our lowly PRV, see the recent post about John Lane's twin turbo 500HP Volvo race car.  It is a well known, frequent off-road winner in this area.  All it takes is lots of $$$$$.

Very good Bruce.  This is a problem that many of us aftermarket turbo folk
have.  As I was reading your explanation it reminded me of something my dad
did many years ago.  We did a lot of boating with two stroke outboard motors
and therefore mixed a lot of oil in with the fuel.  My father would always
buy off the shelf motor oil for the purpose even though his buddies would
spend twice as much on "two stroke oil".  He maintained that if you read the
label and it stated that it was refined from "paraffin based" crude that it
would burn clean (like a candle).  I didn't question it at the time but it
seemed to work just fine.  Maybe it would work equally well for our oil
burning turbo cars now?      I'm off to read some labels.....

It would kind of render one of the FanZilla's main features redundant, 
that of sequencing the fans so they do not come on the instant the 
compressor does. This mod also takes some of the load off the fan relay 
simply because it'll not have to switch anything like as often.

Subject: Re: Question Re: Taillight Mod

Bill

I'm wondering "why?"

If you take the 4 brake lights to be 1 2 3 and 4, I think we've pretty 
much decided over here that 2 and 3 aren't brake lights anyway. The 
cluster was designed to include the european-required fog lights. If you 
look at them, 2 and 3 have a more focused pattern than 1 and 4. They are 
meant to be switched on when it's foggy, and perhaps you guys aren't 
used to seeing them but I can guarantee one very quick way to annoy 
other road users is to drive along with your fogs on when it ain't foggy!

You might like to have a look at my foglight modification, which is 
required on all UK DeLoreans

www.delorean.co.uk/foglights.html

Retains the use of all 4 lights for braking, but allows 2 and 3 to be 
switched on independently.

Subject: Re: Trans fluid.

Okay, this is going back to this past spring when I changed my transmission
fluid. You sound like you are having the same trouble I had. I couldn't get
the plug off either. I believe the problem was that I let the transmission
cool and it ceased on the plug. So, I had to heat it up with a propane torch
and wrench it off with Vise Grips. I think if you drive it around a while
and then take it off you shouldn't have as much trouble.

Also, buy the oil that comes in the squeeze bottle. It's an awkward position
and it's hard to get the fluid in there. The squeeze bottle will make it an
simpler job. I had to siphon mine in and it took forever because the oil is
so thick. To make matters worse, the day stretched into night and the oil
cooled off and had to be heated on the stove to make it viscous enough to be
siphoned!

Bruce Benson's input on my turbo question was
extremely interesting.  It would seem to me that,
designed from scratch, a "blow-thru" system would be
no more difficult than a "blow-by".  From input
received so far, the only disadvantage would be in the
lack of vacuum to run auxillary devices.  Vacuum
cannisters are available for this purpose.

BTW,  Turbonetics has purchased the automotive turbo
portion of Rajay's business.  This could hold promise
for those running Rajay turbos.

I would be very careful about paraffinic based crude oil products. 
 Years ago a study was done of this type of oil versus non-paraffinic 
oils .   The parafinic products contained more wax type long change 
hydrocarbons.  These tended to brake down easily and carbonize resulting 
in waxy build up in motors and earily motor failure.  

 From my experience, over 45 years.  THe dirty engines that I have seen 
were from paraffinic based oils.

Subject: Re: Darryl's AC fan mod

To use the Fanzilla it is important to have a stock set-up. Any mods 
to the wiring of the cooling system except using a higher capacity 
circuit breaker will change the operation of the Fanzilla. It is also 
recomended to replace the Otterstadt switch as the old one usually 
doesn't have the right set-points and may come on too early or too

Grady. The Fanzilla was intended for the stock set-up because there 
are just too many things that could be changed and then you would have 
to test each change for it's affect on the Fanzilla. This was meant to 
be a "plug n' play" deal.

Subject: Re: No Start is Now Starting ... KINDA!!

I assume when you say "nothing" you mean the engine cranks over but 
will not start. This now sounds like the classic "Hard Hot Start". I 
would check the accumulater. There is also a quick check to try. 
Temporaraly switch the plugs on the regulater and cold start valve, 
that should start it. If it does then it is either a bad, missing 
check valve on the fuel pump, leaky valve on the mixture unit, or a 
bad accumulater. Pull the return hose at the accumulater and if it 
shoots gas when the fuel pump runs (from the accumulater) then it is 
gone.

Subject: Re: Trans fluid.

Use the proper adapter and a long breaker bar. If required stick a 
pipe on it. The careful use of heat around the plug on the case may 
also help. When replacing use a little teflon tape on the plug and it 
will be easier to remove.

Darryl,

Do you have an idea of the cost for "a new fully-splined bulletproof
coupler" like yours?  I suspect there are a few people on the list who
would like to install one during their conversion, rather than after the
stock one fails at full throttle.

Bill and List,

I do not want to go too far off on a tangent with the High HP theme,
but High HP does not imply uncomfortable.  In 1997, I drove a BMW
750IL with a V12 that put out 385 HP and 400 lbs of torque, and that
was the most comfortable car I have ever driven in with that much HP.
Of course, I was testing the emergency messaging system for Motorola
and could never actually afford the $95,000 sticker price for it.

Most high HP applications are done in conjunction with suspension
upgrades, which often allow the car to "turn like it was on rails"
but often sacrifice comfort.  There are compromises that can be made
but they can bring you to a "middle ground" with high HP and comfort.

I have a new High HP Delorean project that I have just begun and I'll
let you know which direction I will be headed, re: HP and comfort.

Later,
Rich W.
