Even the instant on radar is detectable. You usually get an alert when they 
are clocking the vehicles ahead of you. I have been on both sides of the 
radar gun and can tell you that both the radar and the detector are only as 
good as the operator. I have the 8500 X50 on a windshield mount right under 
the rear view mirror. I have the X Band turned off (Not used in Florida) and 
rarely get any false alarms. But when it goes off I have miles of warning.

Yes The UK set is made out of stainless, I install one set for a
customer, It looks very good. But it sound very cheap like a 4 piston
motor, a littel more power but the sound is very very cheap and noisy.
The set from dmc housten is the beter one to go for, the sound is the
one I go for.

Subject: Re: Lifetime Water pump bolt questions

Charles ,

The first thing you should do is invest in a metric tap and die set.  Availible at sears or an 
autoparts store sometimes.

Gently use the appropriate tap to chase the threads in the aluminum, caution should be 
taken so you don't create new threads. Be sure to put a drop of oil on the tap or WD-40. 
then blow out debrie from the holes. If you don't have compressed air , you can always 
buy air in a can as used for cleaning computers.

Then, I would recommend using the silver aluminum anti-seize compound.
 
As for silicone grease, I would recommend DOW-CORNING number 4. Check your local 
auto parts store or good hardware store.

Lastly, you can use a cooling system tester and pressurize the system to 15 psi it should 
hold for 10-15 minutes without moving if everything is tight. besure to look under the 
entire car for drips and tighten any hose clamps as needed.

Check with your local auto parts store for the tester kit some stores rent them out .  I now 
that CheckerAuto does. 

Goodluck

Subject: Delorean T Shirts

Hiya.  Was looking at both PJ and DMC Houston and the Cafe Press 
site.  Problem is, I don't like any of 'em.

I was wondering if someone made a higher quality tagless T shirt with 
just the DMC logo on the front.  I don't want a picture of the car, 
just a black or white T shirt with "DMC" on the front in the middle.  

I like the logo shown on the Female wifebeater on the Cafepress site 
and the one for the toddler, just want one like that for a guy.

Maybe one of you vendors can add an understated item like that to your 
selection?

Thank you very much for the information & your experiences on the radar  
detectors for the DeLorean. The DeLorean that I saw in the DeLorean  One 
commercial had a full stealth front and rear remote radar  detector...impressive & 
clean installation. I meet the owner while  on tour in South Carolina several 
years ago. His name was Donald Smith. He  was a film producer from Broadcast One 
productions and drove his DMC all over  the country. He said that detector was 
the best that he had, I don't know if it  was custom or something off the 
shelf.
 
 I have a Valentine One in each car, with concealed displays for  my BMW's 
from _http://www.stealth-one.com/_ (http://www.stealth-one.com/)  ...they  
display on the navigation screen. Any EE's want to design a radar system for the  
DMC's similar to the BMW's?
 
My other car is a different story...as people can see the detector in the  
window and there isn't any room to hide it above the sun visor etc. I've tested  
Escort's newest version and it doesn't even have full POP. At $900 it's over  
priced for the same performance of a Valentine One, and to boot,  I was  
pulled over for 115 mph in a 65 zone  (Vascar)...almost went to the  pokey on that 
ride.
 
I understand your frustrations with women driving Expeditions on your  bumper 
_at_dml_ 90 mph. Today it was raining here in Maryland. I saw a clueless woman  
reading a book while driving 70 on the beltway, a "Minivan Mommy" driving  and 
yelling at her kids while they stuck their heads out of the window (as a dog  
would do), and a Nascar dad with just about every Nascar sticker on his bumper,  
doing 90 mph on the Wash Dc beltway.
 
Sincerely,
Mike Pack

You don't need a ridiculously expensive  detector.

Not for nothing, but people around these parts need to slow  down. I

Subject: Re: DeLorean radar detectors

The Valentine 1 is supposed to have shielding so it cannot be detected
by a radar detector detector. It is also (I think) using a super het
freq different then what is being searched for. You need to go to the
Valentine website occasionally and, using the serial # of your
detector, check for software upgrades. The newest one is for POP and
European mode for $75. Virginia is especially tough but what they are
doing is not legal by Federal Law. Be sure to get a reciept and a
lawyer can get your unit back. They cannot just take away personal
property without fair compensation. If you understand the physics
behind radar speed ranging the detectors will always win unless they
hit you with instant on and you are out in front and don't have any
time to slow down. The faster you go above the speed limit the more
time required to slow down. A radar detector is no guarantee you will
not get stopped, it just improves your chances. If you drive like a
maniac eventually you will either get caught or you will kill
yourself. Deloreans present a low return target for radar (not laser).

Subject: Re: Re: DeLorean radar detectors

Very interesting, though I have only been behind the antenna, I don't understand the term "clocking".  Is there a clock involved somewhere?  I thought the foundation in the operation of the radar was the shift in frequency between the outgoing and returning beam.  Am I incorrect?
 
In addition, if your getting miles of forewarning, the radar operator does not have visual contact with you.  If that where the issue, than who cares if the radar unit registers a radar beam signal.  That still indicates a false alarm.  Besides, with a lack of a proper tracking history, visual contact, and consistent high pitched Doppler Tone, where would the ticket come from? The Officer that's miles away?  Please understand that I say all this with a heavy heart.  Seeing the vehicular carnage I have seen over the years, I have grown to dislike any device which allows anyone to drive a vehicle at speeds which they may not be accustom to travel.
 
Further more, I find it a little disconcerning from someone who indicates they are from both sides of the radar.

Subject: My '81 DeLorean for Sale Charlotte, NC

Hey List,
My 1981 Grey Interior 5-speed VIN #5252 is up for sale. I thought I'd 
let you guys know before I put the car up for sale on collector car 
trader or anything like that. It's a true daily driver DeLorean. It 
has been it's past 3 owners only car, and has been driven every day 
since it's extensive restoration in 1998. Receipts totalling around 
$20,000 from it's DeLorean Motor Center restoration in 1998, and well 
documented maintenance dating as far back as the mid 1980s. The car 
currently has 84,000 miles. It fires up happily every time, and idles 
perfectly. The car has a solid frame: it resided in California until 
it came to the East coast in 1998. Though I have only owned this 
particular DeLorean 2 years, I've known the car's past two owners, 
and have spent a good amount of time in the car since 2000. 

Cosmetically it's very nice... the stainless has been regrained to a 
beautiful sheen, the fascias have been repainted, and the wheels have 
been powder coated. Many extra little touches such as a custom 
stainless radiator screen have been added. Interior is nice and show 
presentable, but the binnacle is cracked and the driver's seat has a 
crack on the back as well (I am a total perfectionist in regards to 
DeLoreans). I will consider fixing/replacing these items for a 
serious buyer. Headliners are new with Grady fiberglass backing 
boards. Original floormats included. Sound system has been upgraded 
and really thumps: $400 El Kameleon CD player, Rockford Fosgate 
speakers all around, and a Pioneer amplified bass tube. 170 MPH 
speedo. 

Mechanically the car has too many updates/upgrades to list here. It 
has all Zilla mods (Fan, Tank, Lock, plus an alarm system); 
electrical, and cooling system upgrades all completed. Since I've 
owned the car ALL (including under intake manifold) hoses have been 
replaced with silicone; all belts, and tires have been replaced as 
well(Michelin Pilots $$$). I've upgraded the radiator to a brass 3-
core, and I just installed a new 140 Amp alternator. All workshop 
manuals included. 

It would take very little to make this car perfect. I hate to sell 
it, but my current priority is buying a condo. Anyone who knows me 
knows my passion for the DeLorean automobile, and I will hope to have 
another one within a couple of years (I've always wanted an automatic 
anyways!). I just can't imagine life without a DeLorean. Email me for 
further details and for pictures Louie(AT)DeLorean.com or call my 
cell: 704-591-2447.

VIN #5252 Charlotte, NC

Hey gang,

My name is Joey Morgan, I live in Catonsville Maryland
and I am a DeLorean owner. I am learning new words and
inventing a few of my own in the two weeks I have had
my D. Just kidding...ITS GREAT!
I will try to keep this short. After telling my wife
how I have always wanted a DeLorean we go on line and
start researching the car. About a month and 1/2 ago
we go to EBay and look up DeLorean and see a few for
sale. We bid on one and we ended up being outbid.
After being outbid (have mercy on a women who decides
she wants something and loose in a biding war....my
wife)...she is now on a mission, a mission to find a 
DeLorean. Yes gentlemen there is a god. She finds one
in Ohio and I call about it, the guy sends me pictures
and we decide to go to Ohio...5 1/2 hour drive in our
Dodge Ram van with our kids...11, 3 and 2. My kids
have seen Back To The Future...and when we pulled up
beside the DeLorean after that long trek...it was a
visa moment...."price of a DeLorean..X amount of
dollars, gas for the van $140 dollars...the look on
your kids face when they see and say "ITS THE BACK TO
THE FUTURE CAR!!!!!!!!" Priceless! Needless to say we
test drove it, checked it out, put the deposit down
and the following Sunday we went back and got it. I
have my 2 and 3 year old finally calling the car a
DeLorean and no we are not going to deck it out like
Back To The Future.
Shes in good shape VIN# 6297, 19kmiles. Had a cooling
issue, (THANK YOU BERNIE for coming over and helping
correct it, can't wait to see Black Beauty.) Interior
is in great shape, motor is strong. Needs some TLC but
it has been a great experience thus far. 
Thanks to everyone on the group website as well, some
of the problems I have been having have been solved by
your emails. I will try to help you guys out as well.
That's my story, we are living the dream. Now...can we
all get back to work on our D's? If anyone is ever in
Baltimore let me know.

Group,

This may sound like a funny question, but how do you get out of your
Delorean?  I am asking because my grand parents have arthritus and it
is kind of difficult for them to get out of the car.  Any suggestion
that will make getting in and out easy is appreciated.

Why don't you make your own?  You can get T-shirt transfer material in

Subject: Was it all a dream? Looking for DML archives from 1997

Got to talking today about the DMC prototype cars, and
it reminded me of a story I read on the DML back in 97
(I think).

Best I can remember, someone in Tennessee was told
about a "Sad DeLorean" in someones yard.  The car was
inspected, and based on the description provided to
the DML it sounded like it may have been a pilot car.

Searching the DML archives, all I can find are
messages of me asking for updates on the story!  

Does anyone else remember this??  Or better yet, have
complete archives from 1997?  (The ones on the web
seem incomplete).

I recall being surprised back then that the thread was
short lived, because I was excited to think that one
of the pilot cars were found.

Or was this whole story my imagination, and I kept
asking about it and making a fool of myself? (no wise
cracks, please).

Hi everyone,
You know those glass crystal things that have a 3d lazer-etched design 
in them?  When I first saw one, my immediate thought was "Man, one of 
those with a De Lorean in it would look sweet!."  Well, I was looking 
through the gifts section of usadmc.com today and I saw one!  "I've 
got to get one," I said to myself, but then I saw the price, $995.  
Apparently there were only ten made total so they are super-rare.  
Does anyone know of any similar ones being produced that are a whole 
lot cheaper?  Thanks.

The archive search engine isn't the best. I know this question has 
been asked but I can't find the answer.

I'm replacing the flexible lines from the fuel pump to the metal lines.
The line nuts unscrewed without any trouble. The metal fittings in the 
flexible hoses will not separate from the tips of the metal lines.

Using heat near the fuel system is out of the question.
PB Blaster isn't working.
Vibration would be better, but space is too limited. 

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Theres a company in kaiserlautern that makes regular

The large one goes for around 80 to 90 euros.  They
can do it with the sun star car that everyone has (i

Steve.. That is very interesting question.  I am in line to have a hip  
replaced over this coming winter so I can appreciate what problems there are in  
that area.  I find that the best way for me to exit is to put one leg out;  then 
swing the other leg out, that is the hard part as there is not enough leg  
room to swing out without bending it.  Then I simply use the door frame to  help 
me stand up.  I also have severe degeneration of the knee on the same  leg.  
Getting in or being a passenger is much easier than getting  out.  If it was 
not such a great car to drive I probably would wait until  after the operation 
to do so.

Subject: Re: Was it all a dream? Looking for DML archives from 1997

I remember that story. What gave it a semblance of importance was the
fact that the person describing the car seemed insistant on the car
having sliding windows. That would be a hallmark of a Proto car. From
the rest of the description the car sounded to be in very sad shape.
My guess is that it is, (was) no more than an ordinary Delorean that
is just dead and what is left is slowly disintegrating. There was not
enough to follow up on and no way to go looking for it. It also seemed
improbable that a Proto could wind up where it was, (I think it was in
S Carolina). In any Marque of cars there is always a story like this
about the "treasure" in the barn, front yard, garage, basement, etc.
The closest I came to the mythical "Mother Lode" was the indoor
junkyard of Claude. I had heard rumors about it for a while but could
not have imagined what we found. So I guess it is "possible" this
story about the Proto car could be true but how do you follow up on
it? If you knew even approximatly where to look you could try Google
Earth, maybe you could get lucky?

Hello all,
Can anyone tell me if there are any pictures of what the air bleeder 
valve looks like?
I had a serious issue two weeks ago where my engine overheated and 
spilled out lots of coolant. I repaired that problem, but now my 
engine pegs out on the water temp gauge after a few minutes of 
running. I assume my coolant ran so low that air may be in the
system. 
I read the article in the tech session by arnie brandon, and have 
ordered the auto air bleeder kit which should arrive in a few days.
In the meantime, how can I top off the radiator just in case it is 
only low on coolant? Thanks.

I recall Brandon Moody being the "discoverer" of that car. I'm not 
sure if he's still on the list, he sold his car a while ago.

Based on later conversations with him I don't think he's ever seen it 
again. I have some quality airport waiting time today - I'll do some 
digging thru my off-line archive and see what I can find.

Speaking of the Archives - the older ones are still getting re-loaded 
and re-indexed. Then it takes some time for Google to find everything 
again. I'm talking about the archive on www.dmcnews.com, not the 
relatively usless one on Yahoo itself.

Dear Mark V:

By your comments, I guess I will  let PJ Grady recheck my DeLorean's 
electrical system again for I am due to  their shop next week.

In the past, Rob and Pat haven't found anything  electrically wrong except 
with the cooling fan's circuit breakers and the  Fanzilla's connectors being 
over 
taxed under heavy use over the  years.   I have even upgraded the Fanzilla 
Series 1 to the  Series 2 two years ago upon Robís suggestion.   And yes, Pat 
at PJ  
Grady does check all the grounding points on the chassis for cleanliness  as 
to insure a good contact, when my car is at PJ Grady at least once if  not 
twice 
a year. They know that my DeLorean is daily driven and I would  take long 
trips many times a year exceeding over a 1,000 miles one  way.   They always 
gave 
my DeLorean a good go over and if  anything that is not right, it gets 
corrected, no matter the cost --  electrical, mechanical or other wise.

About auto  amplifiers.   There are many "so called" high power amps on the  
market with some operating different or better then others and it has been  
that 
way for the last thirty plus years as far as I can remember.  

My experiences with high power amplifiers in my DeLorean are as  follows; my 
first one I had installed was Blaupunkt amp along with a head  unit and 
auxiliary CD changer unit back in the Fall of 1996.  I got  rid of the whole 
system 
after five years and replaced it with a JL Audio  300/4 amp and Eclipse head 
unit 
and a CD changer.   The JL amp  was good sounding but the JL amp drew too 
much 
power and with the  headlights and A/C on, the horns wouldn't work.   Also 
when 
the  audio system is playing and if I was to flash the high beams, the amp  
would cut out and come back on.   That was a nuisance, so I  decided to take 
the 
DeLorean to an authorized JL Audio dealer and  installer as to have the amp 
and 
the electrical system checked out... They  found nothing wrong and that the 
amp 
is functioning  "normally."   So, about eight months later I had the JL amp  
remove and replaced it with the Sinfoni120.4x amp.   This amp  has a higher 
power 
output and it draws less power than the JL  amp.   The Sinfoni amps is a 
great 
sounding amp and the JL Audio  amp now sits in the basement were I last left 
it some two years  ago.   

The alternator was updated, it is a 140 amp from Mr.  John Harvey some two 
years ago.   With ALL the electric  components on and while creeping in NYC's 
rush 
hour traffic, the  electrical demand will swing wildly between the battery 
and 
the alternator  in order to supply the electrical demand in the extreme hot 
and the cold  seasons.   As I was told, this occuring situation can or will 
cause  
an early demise to the battery and or the alternator as well.    I believe 
this is what is happening.   The bottom  line?   Next to the DeLoreanís 
uniqueness, the sound system is  what I value when I am driving it especially 
on long 
trips.  

Anyway, maybe you want to take a crack in checking out my DeLorean's  
electrical system?   I will compensate you for your  time.   Maybe you may 
have a 
better understanding or have better  luck then us?
