There is a way to repair it if you can take the speedometer out of the dash.

<< does anybody have a repair kit for a tripometer on the speedometer?
 my reset button is broke off and i would like to know if it is repairable, 
the
 tripometer still works it is that the part where the push button attaches is 
a little
 broke.

I suggest you go to specialtauto.com or one of the other mainline 
DeLorean suppliers and save yourself some time and headaches. They 
have lots of them.

  I'd have to agree with Elvis on this one.  There
really is plenty of room to work on most items on the
Delorean.  As part of my custom project, I've had to
install and remove the entire engine several times to
test fit certain things and I have to admit, I'm
getting pretty good at it.  Also, when I fabricated my
exhaust system, I did it with only it's final
positioning in mind. But found out that once it was
all welded together, I could actually "snake" the
crossover pipe out of the car without removing the
engine or transmission!  (There was that much room
above the tranny)  I only remember running into a few
area where access was a real problem.  I think one of
the biggest problems a DIY owner will have with the
Delorean is overcoming seized fasteners.

Subject: Re: Low Vin # Warnings

Tom, If you know how to evaluate an older car then I look and listen to it.
Does it over heat & Why??
What leaks?
What about the rubber hoses??
Is there any rust???
What kinds of sounds does it make. Idling or driving???
Things like that.
Low Vin doesn't have to be Doom, but how did the previous owners take care of 
it.
If the previous owners waited for something to happen then it will, but if 
you do pre-maintance, then the waterpump may need to be replaced along with 
all the o rings and gaskets. Is there any signs of water corrosion in the 
coolant system. Does the oil pressure read correctly, Has the fuel filter 
been changed lately? 
As you can see there are a lot of things you may need to ask or observe or 
just plan on doing. If the alternator is one of the originals, then it will 
be under powered for the full use of the electrical system. Many questions.

<< And when I say a low vin #, I'm not kidding.  I'm currently looking 
 at Vin # 787, of course Black interior, gas flap, with windshield 
 antenna and automatic trans.  It has 39K on the Odo and they (the 
 dealer) claims it to have a perfect interior.  The only downside is 
 its price, 13,995, but its not too terrible. Vrs 32.5k or 62k, its 
 quite a bargin, stop arguing you guys.
 
 Ok, I know I have asked many many questions before, but what are the 
 particular things I need to have done for this "super" early car if I 
 indeed decide to buy it.  Beside the zilla stuff.  The altinator has 
 to go I know, but what else.  This is my dream car, well yes the 
 DeLorean, but a very early vin car.  Also, has anybody encountered 
 this car at anytime (00787), or knows the previous owner.  I doubt it 
 because I couldnt find the vin anywhere on the list.  Thanks a lot

Subject: Just got my Toby TABs: questions...

I just got my Toby TABs and I must say that I am impressed with the 
bolts, they're sweet bolts!  But I do have a question about the 4 
washers that the bolts came packaged with. What are these washers for 
exactly? What would the part number be for the washers in the Parts 
Manual? 

I thought they were shims but I found that the washers don't fit 
around the bolts.

thanks, 
Adam Price 16683

Subject: Looking For Old Discarded Modules

I am looking to experiment with an old Fan Fail Relay and a Door Lock Module. 
 If anyone has one or both in decent physical shape and wouldn't mind parting 
with it for a reasonable price please let me know off list.
