Subject: Re: brakes locking up and won't release

Payne,
I went thru the same problems as you,I replaced calipers,Master 
cylinder,ect,and still had my brakes locking up,THE problem is the 
Brake Lines,Sure they may look perfect on the outside,with no visible 
cracks,or damage/rot,But what happens is the(rubber) brake lines rot 
from the inside,and BLOCKS or restricts the passage(the normal flow) 
or return of the brake fluid,(kinda like a dam on a river in reverse)
which causes the wheels to "stick" or lock up,as the hydraulic 
pressure cannot be relieved,or is relieved very slowly because of the 
blockage or restriction, but of course when you 
apply the brakes,because you are applying hydraulic pressure against 
the "dam" (The restriction or blockage)it will allow the brake fluid 
to flow to the calipers,but 
when the pressure is removed,it cannot reverse flow,because of the 
blockage in the deterated rubber brake lines,hense the sticking or 
locking up of the brakes.But then again it could 
just be sticking or rust build-up in the brake calipers,from non-
use.Either way they are very 
old rubber brake lines,and should be replaced anyway,the braking 
system is one area you do not want to skimp on.Hope this helps.

Subject: R134a

R134a is not all that bad....If it's done properly. If the system is 
flushed with a special A/C solvent that removes all the old R12 oil 
and an automatic adusting Orifice tube is installed (along with all 
new rubber seals) then the R134a should cool off very well. If you 
want it even colder then you would need to have a larger evaporater 
made and installed. IMHO...I would go with R134a. It seems that if 
you go with either R12 or R134a your risking something. R12 you risk 
getting a mixed blend of propane and R12 or the mechanic doing a 
botch job in recharging it...R134a you risk not having it cool 
properly and also risk having the mechanic doing a botch job. 

I have to recharge my system at some point (after it's on the road) 
and I'm going to use R134a and do it myself...I have a friend of 
mine that's an A/C tech that will vaccum out the system for me. I 
might even have a larger evaporator installed...I know of a place 
that custom makes them.

I finally got around to adjusting the striker pin on my drivers door and
found that someone had put it in cross-threaded.  Besides needing a new
striker pin, I might need to replace the "nut" in the door.  Can anyone say
what this involves?  I'm thinking that I can get away with chasing the
threads if I can find the right size tap.  Can anyone say what the correct
size is?  I can tell that it is a 1,0 metric thread pitch, but I need to
know the diameter.

MODERATOR NOTE: Let's keep this on track - the subject is antenna mounting on DeLoreans, not the relative merits of XM (Satellite) radio...dave
---------------------------------

Hey List, 
 
     A couple months ago I installed an aftermarket radio that is XM Radio 
ready, and today I decided to see how much it would be to get XM Radio for my 
car.  The receiver I need would cost only $165.00, and then all I would need 
is the antenna.  And thats where I am having a problem.  I just got back from 
a stereo dealer who deals with XM Radio.  All they have are 2 kinds of 
magnetic mounted antennas.  Well...since our beloved cars have an SS skin 
thats non metallic thats obviously not going to work.  They did say that one 
of the antennas they have might be able to be mounted on top of the engine 
cover, and it will still be able to pick up the signals from the satellite.  
My question for the list is....does anyone out there have XM Radio for their 
car?  And if so, what did you do for the antenna problem?  I do know of a few 
glass mounted antennas, but the guys at this dealership says they are huge 
and ugly.  Thanks for the help!

Shain,

You're kidding, right?  :-)  You have done all the right things.  The OEM
rubber brake lines stretch (balloon) as you apply pressure to the pedal, and
installing the stainless braided brake lines is probably what has made your
brake pedal harder (more responsive) than what you are used to.

I put Marty's SS lines on my car, too; and I can't feel any improvement in
pedal firmness.  There is a chance that I still have some air trapped in the
lines, but the brakes work fine.  I blead (bleeded?) them using the vacuum
method, so sometime soon I'll try a different method.

Steve,

Is this possible on the DeLorean?  Is there room in the dash for a larger
evaporator?  I heard from someone else that it was a larger condenser that
was needed -- not an evaporator.  I can tell that there is more room up
front for a thicker condenser.

I am planning on keeping my car running on real R-12 since I bought a bottle
before it became too expensive.  But eventually for everyone it is going to
boil down to either finding a blend that works well or convert to R-134a (or
do without).  If it were chemically possible to find a better substitute,
I'm sure it would have happened by now.  There is enough money at stake to
motivate these chemical engineers.

When I swap out frames next year, I plan on replacing all the hoses with
ones that are R-134a compatible.  Since the system will be all apart, I
would like to know if I can go on and convert to the R-134a compatible oil
and still use R-12.  Can anyone say?  Also, is there an advantage to using
an automatic adjusting orifice tube with R-12, or would it work at all?

Walt

It's simple to use with your propane torch. Order it from J.C. Whitney or 
from a welding supply shop. Search the web for 328 aluminum brazing rod. Pop 
a few holes in a pop can and practice for a while. It's not that hard but 
only works with thin sheet type alum and metals.

Claude,

A neighbor of mine as a joke filled a balloon with an oxygen/acetylene
mixture from a welding torch.  He filled the balloon to about the size of a
basket ball.  He tied a string to it and thumbtacked it to a wall.  Then he
lit the string like a fuse.  When that thing exploded, it broke every window
in the shop, and he thought that it would just pop like a firecracker.

Acetylene isn't propane, but they are very similar.  Sometimes one is
substituted for the other.  I suppose that to test a system, you could drain
a little (and I do mean *little*) amount of refrigerant into a balloon and
light a match to it *outside* to see what happens.

Another interesting thought: One of the ingredients of Mustard Gas is a
combustion byproduct of freon.

Sean, If the fuel pump doesn't run, naturally it won't start. Check the 
connection on the inertia switch. If the connector heats and the plasic 
swells, the connector will lose contact. The RPM relay could also cause the 
problem and the pulse coil could be over heating. The pulse coil activates 
the RPM to close contacts and power the fuel pump to run. Sounds like 
something is heating up and your losing contact.

Jerry,

there is an engine plate located on the driver's side of the engine near the 
catalytic converter on the engine cradle/frame side of it.  have fun reading 
it, it's probably really rusty and discolored!

Mine has an aluminum stamped plate bolted to the rear left hand side of the

Sean,

one day i was cleaning my engine and i use a universal dressing on all of my 
hoses and lines to keep them new-looking.  anyway i accidently loosened one 
of the plug wires so it wasn't making a good connection.  i was driving later 
that day and every now and then my car would just die for no reason.  it 
happened three times and each time i couldn't figure out what happened, then 
i'd get back in my car and it would start again.  when i got home i found the 
loose plug wire.  check all of your wires including the coil wire if you 
haven't already.  also check all of the connections on the ignition resistor 
as well and make sure they are tight.  sometimes it's the stupid things!!

timing still looks about right...even though the car wants to die out 
if I let it idle at the standard 750rpm.  

However, if I *don't* push down on the idle switch, the timing is way 
off the charts, almost directly at the "12 o clock" position.  If I 
rev up the engine, it gets worse and goes higher..not to mention the 
engine sounds like garbage... 

I've been doing the 'propane vacuum leak' testing in order to find 
the source of the leak in key areas, and nothing has turned up 
yet...  If anyone has some thoughts to why this may be occuring, I'd 
appreciate any input.  I'm not very familiar with how the system 
operates (but quickly learning..the hard way!)...but I was hoping 
this might help point me in the direction of what might be at fault, 
what may be leaking, etc...

Again, the car ran quite well until I did a tuneup and it went south 
after that and wouldn't accellerate at all.  It idled ok...but after 
the car sat over the winter months in the garage, now it doesn't even 
want to idle...it just wants to die.  I know I must have done 
something, but keep looking, checking, searching, comparing, and 
haven't come across anything...either I did something that I can't 
locate, something was failing while I was doing my tuneup, or 
something was on the edge of failing and I helped it along by 
disturbing it during my procedures.  

Thanks in advance!
Pete

Sorry there Walt, i want a harder brake pedal.  Today i took my car down to a high performance porshe shop that usualy helps me with my car.  I had the one guy drive my car, mostly to have someone else check and see if they believe that anything is wrong with her.  After one of the scariest rides of my life (their used to racing porshe, the way they shift and drive is diffrently than me), and some good brake test he said that they feel good.  Just need a front end aligment (pulls every so slightly).  The stainless steel brakes lines are a great thing to add to your car, although it was a pain removing the old ones.

Shain,

You're kidding, right?  :-)  You have done all the right things

Normally we won't post virus alerts - they are as much pain in the neck as
the virus itself. But - I've received a bunch of these myself, and warnings
from a few of you. This seems to have hit several people on the list who
correspond off-line and it's replicating via their address books. There is
no consistency to the topic line or where it's from, so posting that info
here would be useless. They are not going via the list. I have several test
accounts that I never use for anything else, and they never get hit with
these things.

PLEASE be careful when you get mail that you don't expect, and NEVER open an
attachment that has .exe or .scr at the end of it. And spend a few bucks for
a good virus checker.

Dave Swingle
