Subject: Re: Cartoon DeLorean in VH1 promo

List,

Has anyone else seen the Christmas VH1 promo
that uses a cartoon set and a cartoon Delorean?

As with most Delorean related things on VH1, they
mis-represent the engine placement in the car by
showing Christmas presents in the engine bay area
with a cartoon person standing next to the car.

The car is shown only for a second or two at the end
of the promo, just before the full screen VH1 logo.
I have not had a chance to try to tape it and run it at
freeze frame to get a good look at the car cartoon.

Later,
Rich W.

Subject: Project Delorean Site Updated

Yes, I've finally updated the site.  Progress has been
hindered since November since I've been installing a
furnace in the garage, but considering I hadn't
updated the site since April, I still had some content
that hadn't been seen.

This update covers the completion of the engine
install/conversion, the coil-over shocks and springs
and the big-brake conversion.

More to come!

Subject: Re: delorean spark plug leads

The Bosch (original equipment) part number for the complete ignition 
lead set for the Volvo version of the V6 is B6087. For the Renault 
version the part no is B4044. The difference between the two would 
most likely just be in the length of the coil lead, either of which 
might not be suitable for the Delorean anyway. You might need to take 
the original coil lead in to your supplier to match it up with one 
from their stock items. If they don't supply Bosch parts, they should 
be able to use the Bosch part number to cross-match it to the brand
(s) they carry. 
BTW, the Bosch part no for the distributor cap is GB797, and for the 
rotor it is GB747, if that's any help at all :)
Hoping that these part numbers are still current, as my catalogue is 
a few years old I'm afraid.

Cheers
Steve Abbott

Simon,

I tried all three sets listed at Halfords and they were all wrong. 
Got to www.delorean.co.uk - martin and dave will have them in stock 
which is where I got mine from. 60 for the set + 12 for the coil 
lead I think.

Cheers

Robin

Subject: Re: Lawnmower like sound

It more than likely is an exhaust leak. I can't from here tell which
side but it could be both. Call one of the "D" venders up and get a
set of studs, nuts, and gaskets. If you don't have experience at
working on exhaust systems and/or you don't have a torch you may want
to give this job out. It is not uncommon to break studs off getting
things apart.

Subject: Re: winter storage question

The problem with doing it through the fuel pick-up is that not only
can you not inspect the inside of the tank well, you can't clean it
either. IMHO it is no biggie to remove the fuel pump and inspect the
boot, the pick-up hose, and the baffle more completely, drain the
fuel, and then put everything back. Since this is one of the "hidden"
areas of the car I like to look in there once in a while. When you get
a good look in there you can actually see a bubble of water floating
in the fuel, shiny pieces of metal, dirt, etc in the fuel. In many
cars the baffle is either not properly assembled or parts are broken
or missing. You just can't tell all this through the fuel sender.

Subject: Re: winter storage question

When I said vacuum I meant with a liquid extractor. You are correct, a
wet/dry vac is not a good idea! I use a liquid extrator that I got
from Griot's garage. It is not the best but it works and doesn't need
a source of compressed air so it can be used anywhere. Just use
general fuel handling precautions. Working with fuel is one of the
most dangerous procedures on a car. (driving can be the other!).

Subject: What engine oil should I use?

Hi List,  I drive my Delorean almost every day, and I
wanted to know what is the best weight of engine oil
to use. Iam running 20W-50 Castrol right now, should I
run a 10W-40,10W-30 or is the 20W-50 alright? I live
in lower Alabama and my car has about 150,000 miles
and is still running strong.Iam not sure what the
owner before me ran in the car. I am also running a
lucas oil additive.  Thanks, Casey VIN# 3270
