    It's possible but usually ECU failures are the driver transistors from a shorted idle motor. But your running out of things to check so if you can get another owner who will let you borrow his ECU...

    I've not seen bad deceleration springs that don't look bad but maybe that is your problem. Can you press on the springs to make sure they have some tension? But since the problem came on suddenly...

    Try pulling the vacuum advance hose going to the ignition distributor and see if that reduces the idle RPM.

    Keep backing out that curb idle screw.

    RPM will increase because the oil gets thinner...

    I don't think an induction heater would work on brass or aluminum. Probably not even stainless steel.

    I agree. Probably puts the heat right where it's needed. Unless it's so much heat it welds that spot.

    If your engine hunts right away on a cold engine than probably the idle motor is sticking cold.

    My car will hunt for a minuet or two right after the engine warms up enough to start the lambda...

    There is no spring action in the idle motor. So when you pull power it should stay put but vacuum forces and engine vibration may change the position. If you happen to pull the connector slowly or...

    The throttle plates should not have to jamb shut all the way. If they do it tends to make them stick closed. I found greasing the throttle return spring on the throttle body is very helpful getting...

    I found CAD plating on bolts would come right off the threads on first use. Those bolts were also AN rated aircraft hardware.

    The standard AUX relays are 70 amp rated units so I would guess you just got a defective replacement unit. Yes swapping the smaller control wires will swap what functions turn on with each key...

    So are the ones you are taking about have a coiled spring in them? I would think all the struts that slow down at the end of the stroke have some oil to provide that function and they all use gas to...
  15. [Engine] Ignition coil voltage

    Here is what you should expect for coil voltage on our DeLorean.

    Assuming you have the stock blue coil, 12.5 volt battery voltage, engine not running, stock wiring and stock ignition ECU, stock...

    Mine has very little affect even when measuring dwell. I do cover it to finalize the dwell adjustment.

    The mixture plug is not a very large leak. You can shine a light down around the pipe in the dark and press the air plate down and look for light inside the FD.

    Your problem sounds like a large vacuum leak. Check that you have all your hoses connected and check the pipe of agony.

    The jamb nut is just to be able to set where the knob holds tight so your lettering is pointed correct. As you said you would not be able to get loose even if it had one.

    You can run with jamb...

    You were able to get timing close when cars used points but with magnetic sensors you can't really turn the distributor till it fires. So noting the rotor position and marking the rotational...

    I get bored building my products so to take a break, I ran a contact resistance test on a standard 70 amp aux relay. This is a new SONG CHUAN part number 897-1AH-D1 70 amp rated at 14 volts.

    Thanks for that update on DMCtoday. I have been getting a 404 code for the past few weeks and thought DMCtoday was gone forever.

    My lines were not tight at all. The line at the condenser was even what I consider loose. So I used standard flat wrenches, not line wrenches.

    I had to use one wrench on top and the other under the car on the accumulator. Buy some cheap wrenches and bend and or grind them so they fit. The line at the condenser I had to cut a little of the...
