Subject: Re: Re: a little more idle work needed

Tonight after work i checked my ignition timing just for the heck of it.
At idle with the car fully warm, it was advanced!!!
I pulled the vac hose off the ignition advance and there was no vacuum!  Just 
a popping kind of sound when i first removed it, but no sucking.  i put it 
back on, checked the timing again, it was back to normal.  it seems like it is 
going back and forth on its own. the solenoid is new.

what gives?  i redid the wires on the idle speed switch and they aren't loose 
anymore.  what is going on here?

how do i hook up my multimeter so i can tell if the switch is operating 
correctly? it is being engaged and disengaged when it should be.

i'm really confused now....

Subject: clutch slave rod travel?

I was wondering if anyone knows how far out the rod in the slave cylinder
will travel with the clutch pushed in completely?  (ie 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 1
1/2 inch etc)  Thinking about it, does the slave cylinder even have a rod or
does it just push on the clutch fork?

Thanks in advance

Duke

An important factor is WHERE it was driven too..  If
it is a north east car, and saw lots of snow and rain
it could need some frame work.

I see no reason why any (Delorean, or otherwise) well
maintained car with 120K would be a problem.

Johnny,

I own a high milage D and drive it daily.  I bought it in Feb of 
2002 (I'm the 4th owner) with about 86K on it, that's assuming the 
angle drive never broke.  In June of 02 I drove it from So. Cal to 
Memphis for the DCS, got furthest traveled too!  I now have around 
125-130K on it, the angle drive did break in me, d'oh!  In the time 
I've owned it, all I've done to the engine other than oil changes is 
a "30K tune-up" at 100K, a starter (thanks to a broken spring in the 
ign. switch), and a custom exhaust system (which gave me almost half 
of the allowed emissions!).  Non-engine stuff includes a fuel pump, 
A/C comp, and other little misc. items, after all the car is 22 
years old.  Oh, I forgot to mention that I now like in Phoenix and 
it handled 120 degree weather with the A/C on no problem!
Any question? hehe

Ryan
