The temperature sending unit for the temp gauge is on the front of the
engine on the right side. Very common for the (single) wire to get
knocked off when working in that area.

Go to the fuel pump. Check that one wire gets 12 volts and check that
the other has good continuity to ground. If you don't get voltage
follow that circuit back and if you don't get a ground follow that
back to the inertia switch. The fuel pump wiring goes past the washer
bottle and there is a connector plug there that might be the problem.
Remember, there are TWO circuits in the inertia switch, one is the
ground for the fuel pump and the other is supposed to unlock the doors.

Subject: Re: temp gauge not working

I just experienced the same problem on my car.  Reviewed my wiring diagram
and show the sending unit is a ground only type switch.  The power for the
switch is a the meter and the ground wire is the signal wire.  I just
ordered a new sending unit for mine.  could have been a mistake but for 20
bucks a new sending unit is not a big deal

Subject: new belts and valve cover changes

Hello all:

    Ive been gone for a bit back to the states.  The
last week ive been working mostly on my mustang
because the TUV is up this month.

    Im taking my second set of valve covers for the
delorean and turning them in , to be glass bead
blasted for a chrome like polished aluminum look.  any
thoughts on this?

    for the left hand side several components will
have to be moved out of the way, including the AC. 
This would be a good time to replace both belts.

correct me if im wrong, the tension for the alternator
side is adjusted on the alternator bracket itself...
for the belt on the AC side im not quite sure, any
info would be appreciated.

    I have a new set of gaskets for the valve covers
but would prefer a higher quality volvo felpro gasket
is possible, does anyone know a good place to order
this?

    Is there a torque / retorque specification for
these valve covers?

the belts and valve cover removals will be turned into
new howto's


thanx

I had the same problem when i first got my car.  first i replaced the sending 
unit which didn't help.  then i wound up replacing the gauge in the dash and 
that turned out to either be the problem, or while replacing parts i 
accidently fixed a bad connection?  works fine now though
