The Rover V8 engine is actually pretty easy to get in the US.

I got mine from an engine recycler KB Cores. (now located in Kankakee 
IL).  I also put him in touch with a guy on the east coast who 
specializes in putting Rover V8 s in Triumphs to make them TR8s.


Kyle would sent 5 engines a year to the east coast.  Common engines now 
to get are the 4.2 or 4.6L versions.  The 4.2 can be upgraded to the 4.6 
for about $300//


The cost for these aluminum V8s runs from 300 to 900 US dollars.  A real 
bargain compared to a chevy or ford V8 at $3000.

These 4.6s also have serpentine belts  which make them simpler to 
install than the pulley version I put in my car.

If you get the 4.6  also get the fuel injection system.  then get an 
after market computer to control it.

Subject: PRV Intake Question

OK -- having just spent some quality time this afternoon working
around my intake rails (ugh), have a simple question:

Why did PhD's at Peugeot et al find it necessary to use intake rails
vs conventional shaped intake manifold? Have seen Bosch fuel injection
on other makes without upper air assembly, so that can't be only
reason. Is there a performance advantage to big air drop into the
heads? (note this happens BEFORE fuel is mixed, unlike tunnel intakes
that stick carburetor half way out of hood).

Just curious (it would be SO much easier to work without intake rails
in the way).

Subject: Alternator change-out

Hello group,

I'm currently *trying* to change out my alternator. The alternator 
I'm installing is this one:

<http://autoexpress.safeshopper.com/1261/9102.htm?506>


Question one: The universal bracket I'm trying to use is not working, 
the hole on the alternator is too far "around" it for the universal 
bracket to reach around and connect. Not enough angle, the universal 
bracket is too straight. Any thoughts?

Also, since the new alternator is GM, I've purchased the generic plug 
for the wires. Question: the plug has a white wire and red wire. The 
harness on the car has two wires of similar color. One is about 3 
times the size of the other. Am I correct in assuming that the thick 
wire should connect to the red wire on the adapter plug? And what is 
the function of these wires?

This whole project is becoming more perplexing than I anticipated. It 
may be due to the fact that it may not have had the original 
alternator on it in the first place.

I'm sure more questions will follow, but any enlightnement you can 
pass along will be appreciated!

Subject: Re: firewalls

Dale,
I would offer that even if the temperature while running normally is 
OK, that what happens when a cat goes bad (glows red hot), is enough 
to do something extra to protect your aluminum engine block, which is 
less than two inches away, from that kind of heat.

Warren told me the same, but it didn't sit well with me. After trying 
to find a suitable replacement, I decided on wrapping with exhaust 
system wrap. Matter of fact, I did the whole system while I had it 
out. Looks good, oughta add a couple horse, and will channel the heat 
away from the top of the tranny and sides of the aluminum block.

My thoughts anyway,

Subject: Re: Zoom Zoom at DMCH Open House 2003

For all of you who were not able to attend the DMCH open house,
you missed one heck of a Delorean event.  And for all the gear
heads in the crowd, if you did not attend the Sunday track day,
you missed a really rare chance to "play" with these Deloreans.

A big thanks to the whole staff of DMCH in making this Delorean
event one to remember.  Although a few degrees cooler or a drop
in humidity would have made the whole weekend perfect, there is
little that could have made this event better.

So, for those of you that missed the open house or track events,
I have posted a short Quick Time compatible MOV file under Files
in the DML vault.  This file is about 4MB and was created on my
Kodak Digital camera (with digital video feature).  It's not a
perfect clip by any means, with a little humidity on the lens,
but it almost makes this video clip look a little artistic.

I'm sure there will be better video clips of this event posted on
websites soon, so this is just something to view until then.

Later,
Rich W.

Subject: My water pump failed again, revisited.

Thought I'd share my experience this weekend.

After rebuilding the engine because of a bad water pump, the darn 
thing failed again on the first day I actually drove it anywhere 
after the rebuild.

When I took the failed water pump out this weekend, the pulley would 
not rotate (and by the way, I only removed the belt, the throttle 
barrell assembly and the intake plenum 'w pipe'). 

I saw on www.specialtauto.com a picture showing how to tell if the 
pulley was pushed on far enough and sure enough it was out 3/4 of an 
inch.

When I took the back of the pump off, I found that the impeller wheel 
had indeed been rubbing the back of the water pump case, and in fact 
there was quite a bit of damage to both the back and the impeller 
wheel too.

This rubbing must have transferred the heat to the seal, and caused a 
failure. I figure I sped up the process by having the belt very 
tight, which caused the pulley and impeller to try to align, causing 
it to push into the backing.

I think I'll let SpecialTAuto put on the pulley this time. Would have 
saved me this fun experience!!

Hi folks

My AC had an R12 to R134a conversion, blows cold, seems to work fine. 
One question...when I first start my car for the day, if the setting 
is on vent and i shift it to bi-level there is a loud groan lasting 
about 3 seconds that comes from under the middle of the dash. I 
cannot reproduce the sound any other time during the day, just upon 
the first start. Once again, the AC seems fine, no other unusual 
sounds or smells.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the fun time. Considering I do not own a delorean, it was a 
blast drag racing a few of them and being able to hang out with all the 
technical people. First time I drive a delorean and I'm drag racing it 
down the track.

I sucked at speed though due to not being use to the stiff clutch, but 
most people got between 75 and 80. A few got higher, one got 84, another 85.

Again, thanks for the extremely fun time. Coming just makes me want to 
get one sooner. I'm saving and will own one at some point. Thanks for 
the great time and being able to hang out. Need to get that picture from 
Hooter's up sometime. Waiting for my film to be developed but I wont get 
the pictures back until Wednesday.

the blower motor is rusting inside.
Drop the puppy (five screws I think) and clean it out, oil it up. Pretty
easy job.
A bad one draws more current than it should need to.
Also make sure the drain is working.
They do eventually die from wear and rust, then go visit your friendly
neighborhood DMC part dealer online and get one in a few days for fairly
cheap.

Subject: Nasty screws and bolts

Unfortunately, only 1 year after I had my windshield washer pump
replaced, it went out again.  Well, at least I think it did.  I can't
tell for sure, because the bolts that hold the windshield washer tray
up underneath the washer fluid reservoir have decided that they aren't
going to come out.

I can get three of the bolts out, but the rest of them (5) just sit in
place and spin.  I could be wrong, but it looks to me like those bolts
are extremely hard to get to from the other side.  This seems to be a
theme with my car lately, as I've had exactly the same problem with
the plastic fuel tank cover that goes underneath the spare tire, and
also with the screws in the plastic panel that covers the fuel filler
from inside the luggage compartment.

Unfortunately, I wasn't the one who replaced the washer pump last
time, so I suspect that too much force was used to tighten the bolts,
and the rivnuts simply gave way on the other side.

So what's the best option now?  Cut the tray up into pieces so I can
get to the washer pump?  Take the entire front end apart?  Drill the
bolts and then replace them with...?  This should have been a 20
minute job...

The Rover V8 engine is actually pretty easy to get in the US.

I got mine from an engine recycler KB Cores. (now located in Kankakee 
IL).  I also put him in touch with a guy on the east coast who 
specializes in putting Rover V8 s in Triumphs to make them TR8s.

Nick, Several of us Delorean vendors have bolt on replacements with
technical backup and warranty. You may want to consider going that way
instead of fighting the problem with an outside vendor that as you can see
offers no assistance.

Subject: [DML] Alternator change-out


Hello group,

I'm currently *trying* to change out my alternator. The alternator
I'm installing is this one:

<http://autoexpress.safeshopper.com/1261/9102.htm?506>


Question one: The universal bracket I'm trying to use is not working,
the hole on the alternator is too far "around" it for the universal
bracket to reach around and connect. Not enough angle, the universal
bracket is too straight. Any thoughts?
