I would be so greatful if someone wouldn't mind checking on a 
Delorean's VIN on CARFAX.com :

SCEDT26T6BD005923

Im looking to buy it and would really like to know its history (there 
are 4 records under it).

Thank you sooo much.

Subject: cross reference o2 sensor

Is there a part number for the bosch o2 sensor for the DeLorean?
 
As well. where could I find a GOOD cross reference list for various
parts of the D?
 
Ie.. ball joints, brake pads, etc..
 
I am trying to compile a list for my webpage www.odoc.ca
<http://www.odoc.ca/>  and rate the cross ref lists according to how
well a cross ref part fits the original and pricing. etc..
 
Please feel free to email me back privately ken_at_dml_odoc.ca
 
Thanks

Subject: Re: Dumb question_Window failure

I just replaced my driver side window motor assembly and it appeared 
that the first owner epoxyed the braket holding the tube that holds 
the worm gear track in place. If this bracket breaks, the worm gear 
assembly will push itself out of the track and a bunch of noise will 
be heard. It will loop itself into an S-shape and fail to feed into 
the track properly. You can remove the assembly and have it repaired 
with small welding. I had my old one repaired just to see if it was 
possible. The original motor assembly was not the best design so now 
the new ones are much better and probably last a life-time or at 
least until I pass on fourty years from now.

Subject: AC Compressor cross reference

I can not believe that the only car that used the ac compressor in 
the DeLorean was the DeLorean.  There most have been some other car 
to use it, Saab, Volvo, Lotus, etc.  My compressor clutch starts to 
smoke after several seconds which leads me to think the compressor is 
dying.  There are many compressors for sale on e-bay.  One most fit a 
DeLorean.  I know the xref is a Sanden (sankyo) SD-510 model 8494 but 
that does me no good in finding one at auction.

Subject: RE: door launchers

<<Dan's only caution was to NOT use any existing wiring. 
 Run a separate wire to the actuators.  They draw a 
bunch of current.  Dan felt that the reason the long 
promised Zilla door launchers had not yet hit the 
streets was because of Bob's insistence that no wiring 
be changed; ie, plug & play.>> 

Since I've probably sold and installed more of these than anyone else I guess I 
need to once again correct the misinformation being repeated.  Remote door 
openers (not "launchers" - this isn't NASA) are fairly easy to install but the 
wiring is a little tricky.  There is absolutely no reason to run separate 
wires - there are actually two ways to wire them using existing wiring, and 
motorized actuators draw very little current, unlike heavy solenoids.  As for 
which actuators, the PD-1 from Dakota Digital or similar from Auto-loc work 
great.  And in spite of what others claim the failure rate in some 15 years of 
selling them is ZERO!  Not one failure or complaint.  Why Bob Z. endlessly 
postpones and insists on using solenoids, with their added weight and high 
current draw, is beyond me.  These work, and have been available for years.  I 
have kits on my website, but to be honest anyone with a little ingenuity can do 
it yourself with off-the-shelf parts.  And in my semi-retired-from-DeLorean 
state I'm losing interest in supplying them.  I will, however, supply 
instructions for $15.00 postage included.

Try www.sanden.com. There's a phone number on the site, and a parts 
reference. There's nothing unusual about this compressor. Did you 
check the DMC places? If I recall the compressor is not terribly 
expensive because they have a ton of them.

It was used on the Renault 30 with a slightly larger pulley. It's 
cheaper to source from a DeLorean vendor.
