Subject: those &^%$# door lights are great

Maybe the plastik part of the door is too far away from the switch so it
won't be
pushed in far enough ?
Test it by sticking something on the plastik part with tape (is it still
there ?) with one,
two ore some more millimeters (40,80...mills).
But the question is - why doesn't the door push the switch correctly ? Is it
installed correctly ?
is it the correct switch ?
Can you take a picture ?

I always have the inverse problem with my other car, where the contacts are
corroded....

Elvis...with great door lights in his 6548




I have the most frustrating door lights of all time.....I can sit there a
million times and push the little door light/door ajar button and the lights
go out instantly. As soon as I close the door, the lights stay on!!!!!....Is
this magic? Obviously the door closing shut is not pushing that little knob
at all or maybe somehting is shorting somewhere...

Subject: Re: coolant leak, pitted pipe?

The pitted pipes are a result of acid buildup in your coolant system. When
was the last time you flushed out the coolant system? It should be done
every couple of years. Call a DeLorean vendor and order a new pipe. Also,
have you replaced the coolant system rubber hoses, ALL of them. Including
the ones under the intake manifold. This is where most coolant losses occur.
Poke a long screwdriver or stick under the intake manifold and see if it
comes up wet. If it is, then the next step is to call PJ Grady and get his
coolant system hose kit.

Hey Everyone!

Mark (ionicdesign_at_dml_execpc.com) just suggested a really
great idea for my site. If anyone would like to be put
onto an e-mailing list for updates pertaining to my
site please write me privately at
delorean_stainless(AT)yahoo.com It's a great idea for
anyone really interested in my project. I will also
post messages about updates on the DML but they might
be delayed a few days. I have not done any updates in
a month or so but I have a ton of new pics and a lot
of exciting progress. I have collected massive amounts
of data pertaining to mods and upgrades. The big
picture is beginning to come into focus more. I'm
gonna put a parts section up too of stuff I'm selling
so people looking will want to check there every so
offten. I dont wanna spoil the surprise of whats gonna
happen but its very exciting! It's gonna be a long
restoration, refurbish and reenginering project, but I
hope everyone will check in every so often. It's Very
very Exciting!!!!!!!

Thank you again Mark for your interest in my project

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dmcnews/message/14564>

Good luck, don't forget to immediately install a backup 
when you get it open! AND remember to tell your service 
station it is there; I forgot so when they had the cable snap 
on them they charged me for installing a new cable after 
wrestling it open... 
But they did a great job on my car, so I didn't mind 
and NOW they DO know...

Well I tore off my manifold heat stove today. I was getting an 
annoying vibration sound during acceleration around 2500 rpms from 
the passenger side engine bay. When i checked the stove today it was 
extremely loose and rusty. The little bolts holding it on broke off 
when i tried to remove them. Anyway, the buzz noise seems to be gone.

Also while I was down there I noticed that the exhaust manifold is 
missing a nut.. dammit.

Subject: Only running on five cylinders

After the cold weather started, for some reason my baby will only run on
five cylinders.  Everything was perfect up until then, aside from some minor
hesitation in the morning.  After checking the injectors (the ones I can get
to) and finding them clean, I've just decided to do a tune up and replace
the distributor cap, rotor, plugs, wires, and coil.

Now comes the hard part.  I can't even see the distributor.  I've only
caught a brief glimpse in all my crawling around in then engine bay and it's
very disheartening.  I can't even tell what I have to remove.  I tried a
couple of things, but someone had the cruel joke of filling a few bolt heads
with glue.  Do I have to take off the fuel distributor and the entire
intake?  I've searched around and found nothing documented on distributor
removal.  Unfortunately there are no shops in my small town that will even
work on it, let alone that can be trusted.  I've had to give up my futile
attempts to preserve my dwindling sanity.

Would there happen to be any kind souls out there who have done this at home
and could send me a few tips?  I miss my DeLorean!  Every day I'm not
driving her is torture.  If you could, please contact me at
bpayne(at)macnet.com

Thank you for all your time!

Basically DMC was "trying" to sell the Deloreans for twice the price 
tag of a Corvette of the same year.Corvettes in 1981 were selling for 
appox $16,000 so DMC was sticker pricing at $32,000(at least that was 
what was on the window sticker of the very first delorean I looked at 
in a Dealer show room in 1981)so at todays rate, if there was a 2003 
Delorean,that would mean that a New Delorean would sell for $80,000-
$100,K's.
So D-1's Remanufactured Deloreans would be a bit steep even in todays 
standard.Remanufactured items should NEVER exceed 50% of NEW.DMC of 
Texas is MORE in line for what a Remanufactured Delorean should/would 
sell for.Expecially since the Delorean has no important History 
behind it(Street or track racing or Legendary figures/time eras ect. 
behind it)Yes I know JZD,Lotus,and Ital-Design,BUT all the negative 
things/problems knocked it out of wack,The gullwing doors is Not what 
makes the car special,as the Bricklin has those,THE thing that makes 
it special is THE STAINLESS STEEL SKIN,and the "cult" like following 
that it has.And sites like this and OTHERS that are deciated to the 
Delorean.If you take one of these items away,it would become just 
another used old car.

Subject: Re: Only running on five cylinders

Access to electrical distributor is quite easy if you move upper air
assembly (the "air/fuel assembly"?) up and forward a couple of inches.
Is only held on by two brackets near the fuel distributor and one bolt
between the throttle plates. Even with my PRV's formed steel fuel
lines, removal was 15 minute procedure. Watch the O rings where air
assembly joins U pipes. I recommend leaving connecting rod attached at
throtle plates and taking loose at the spool (much easier access to
retaining clip). 

I'd be leery to disturb seal between fuel distributor and the air
assembly. Could create a MAJOR vacuum leak.

While everything was loose I further increased access by relocating
idle speed motor. Makes timing the thing a snap. Spark plug 4 is much
more accessible too.

Re: 5 cylinders -- I'd suspect spark more than fuel. Have you
identified the dead cylinder? Make sure wire is seated all the way.
Pull the plug to analyze what's going on inside (if plug itself isn't
damaged it could be fouled with soot, oil, or encrustation: 3
different problems elsewhere in engine). Swap plugs to see if misfire
moves to new cylinder. You can't really swap wires until you get
access to distributor, at which time you'll be replacing them all anyway!

Thanks for the info, Dave and Jim.
According to my records all rubber was changed in 12/97.
I changed coolant last fall; more was probably changed in Feb. when the

The damage was probably done before that.
I would think the rubber is still good... you?

Subject: Re: The D gets cheaper every day.

oh you're gonna get hell from that...

The gull wings do help to make the car.

But at the time the price of car was out of whack due to higher 
production costs than were expected. If DMC *HAD* survived, it would 
have improved the DMC-12's manufacturing process, and would have had 
other ventures to bring in money (like cocaine... bad joke sorry). 
The price of the 12 would have dropped to less than the vette or 
porsche OR the performance and quality of the car would have improved
 to be more worth the near 30k price tag. 
IF DMC had lived, the 81-83 DMC-12 would not be going for as much as 
they are are because there would more of them (or 84s, 85s, and on 
that were similar) and there would be less demand for restoration. 
More than likely if JZD had lived up to his dream the car would have
 lessened in price, improved in performamce and quality, but 
unfortunatly become more common.


The cars entire history and style are what make it special, not just 
the stainless. Gulls Wings, stainless, JetSetter JZD leaving GM and 
MAKING HISTORY IN THE PROCESS, and fun and exotic (and compared to a 
ferrari or lamborghini.. cheap) car, AND a scandal surrounding it 
all. The car was a classic in 1979, before it came out!!! And by 82 
it was a legend.

The DMC-12 has it's bad points. But destined to be what it is now. 
COOL AS HELL!!

I agree that DeLoreaOne is absurd, and I personally would never buy 
anything from a place that would dare charge the prices they do (not 
just for cars but for parts too). Lords knows PJ Grady not only cares
 more about the customer, and the cars, but does a better job and for
 less money that DeLoreanOne would even think about without snubbing 
thier nose at me (for looking for a project-car when they only wanna 
sell me a 30k car for 62k).[not to start a vendor war.. i like DMC 
Houston too BTW, J Hervey is great as well]
Forgetting about them however, a good condition D has appreciated in 
value since 81. Which is especially amazing considering they weren't 
really worth 30k to begin with!

Have you pulled the oil dipstick out and see if there is any Coolant

sure it's oil coming out from behind the pump? If the seal goes on 
the pump...they are black and will blacken the coolant as it oozes 
past the bad seal.

It looks and fits just like a stock one, but uses high quality stainless throughout, all manderal bent tubes, and no baffling. It will improve performance with only a very slight increase in noise which is almost nonexistant. Go take a look at http://putschdesign.tripod.com/ I am asking $275 for it. That barley covers my cost in building it. Let alone time in design, construction, welding etc. By the way, it has those nice stainless borla tips on it, they look really good on the car.

My Car is a Canadian spec, Not in the 17,000 vins
though. I do have the 240kph speedo and throttle spool
cover. Before I changed them It also had white/amber
split front indicators.

Subject: Doc Brown Costume

It's time to start on our costumes. A lot of people are interested in this
project so we're going to get an early jump on it.

Here's a list of things you will need to begin:

1. Lab coat and pants. You want to get white pants and a white jacket. Check
the yellow pages to see if you have a uniform supply store in town. If there
isn't one, you can order them online at http://www.uniformstore.com or
http://www.uniformadvantage.com. Expect to spend between $30 - $50.

2. Doc's hair. It should look similar to this:
http://www.magicmakers.com/retail/wigs/baldoldmangrey.html. Check your local
costume shops and see what they have. 

3. Inkjet t-shirt transfer paper (at least 4 sheets) and access to an inkjet
printer. I bought a pack at Best Buy, but any office supply or craft store
will have them. Here's what I bought:
http://www.burlingtonpaper.com/inkjetspecialty/item529.html. We will use
this paper to transfer the giant radioactive symbol (which I will provide)
on the back of the lab coat.

4. Hawaiian shirt (optional). Doc wore this under his lab coat. I happen to
wear them on a regular basis so I have them lying around. You can get them
in any clothing store fairly cheaply.

Tonite, I will begin making the lab coat and hopefully have photos of it for
tomorrow.

Good luck!
