  1. [Fuel] LOL, I don't dare drive my car anywhere with it...

    LOL, I don't dare drive my car anywhere with it operating like this. I guess I could if I have my 3mm Allen wrench with me but I really don't like changing the mixture just to get the thing started...
  2. [Fuel] Yes, don't think I haven't been thinking about...

    Yes, don't think I haven't been thinking about that post as I work my way through the money like you did. I'm likely to end up there too. :( If I do buy the FD, I REALLY hope that solves it. This is...

    Is CO the same as the mixture screw? Once I set the mixture screw to 20-25 with the engine good and hot I left it. I'd like to get this thing running without having to mess with the mixture but...

    Well, I sent my injectors off to be cleaned and got a replacement WUR from SpecialTAuto and installed everything today. After I reinstalled everything I got the car running by playing with the...

    So, I pulled my warm up regulator out today and I can see that there's junk in one of the ports (the one with the screen). How do I go about cleaning that gunk out?

    Also, I pulled all my...

    Thanks for the detail Helirich, I took a very close look at my set again following your instructions and the problem I have is that on my hoses that have the valve the ends are two different...

    @Helirich, here's a couple of pictures I snapped of the equipment:
    67099
    67098

    I took a picture of the only piece in the kit with a valve and it has two female threaded ends on it. I put a green...

    Hey, if I take a few detailed pictures of the kit would you help me to figure out which fittings to use where? I'd love to not have to return this kit if it will work for both readings but, for the...
  9. [Fuel] @Ron, the stock fuel circuit was still complete...

    @Ron, the stock fuel circuit was still complete with the gauge installed. I used the gauge set's banjo bolt replacement that added a quick disconnect for the gauge so it shouldn't be with the valve...
  10. [Fuel] Okay, with the tool I bought I was only able to...

    Okay, with the tool I bought I was only able to measure the pressure at a single point (instead of running it in-line). It came with a bunch of fittings but none of them worked for putting the device...
  11. [Fuel] Thanks @Ron! That's what I needed. The...

    Thanks @Ron! That's what I needed. The instructions that came with the thing are terrible... I'm pretty sure this was written by Chinese. :dead:
  12. [Fuel] Where should I hook up the fuel pressure tester?...

    Where should I hook up the fuel pressure tester? Do I put it in line between the fuel filter and fuel distributor?
  13. [Fuel] I asked my girl to come handle the camera while I...

    I asked my girl to come handle the camera while I held the beast up so I could get a good view of it. Here's the result:

    67089

    It's pretty grungy under there. The plunger is quite loose and...
  14. [Fuel] I took that top hose off and was able to slightly...

    I took that top hose off and was able to slightly lift the FD. The plunger seems to be very smooth but I can't lift the FD high enough to assess the o-ring status. The screws holding the FD on were...
  15. [Fuel] Okay, I'm out here looking at it and it...

    Okay, I'm out here looking at it and it definitely looks like I need to break into the fuel lines to take the FD off the intake. Two of the screws are accessible but one is under a banjo bolt...

  16. [Fuel] I have never pulled my fuel distributor off...

    I have never pulled my fuel distributor off before. Is it easy to do for checking the plunger operation? Can I do it leaving all the fuel passages intact?

    I just watched this video that explains...

    OMG, $700 for an FD rebuild +core! Is that how much you paid? I'm guessing Dgo you referred to is https://www.deloreango.com/? Why not buy from the official https://store.delorean.com if the price is...
  18. [Fuel] Yeah, I get it. That's not the first time I've...

    Yeah, I get it. That's not the first time I've heard this argument. However, I CANNOT get the car started and running without adjusting the mixture richer... unless you have a solution to make that...
  19. [Fuel] I've been battling this starting/fuel problem...

    I've been battling this starting/fuel problem since I got the car (around 2016). Years ago right after I got it I determined that the WOT microswitch was stuck on and the previous mechanic(s) that...
  20. [Fuel] Cool, I just bought this kit:...

    Cool, I just bought this kit: https://www.amazon.com/BETOOLL-Injection-Pressure-Tester-Gauge/dp/B01L17TPT2/

    I'm going to give it a try. Hopefully it's compatible, someone in the Q&A said they...

    How can I tell? Not sure how to verify it's functional.



    Yes, I did that to get the car idling correctly. How can I get it to start (without having to adjust the fuel mixture)?
  22. [Fuel] I busted out the dwell device and when the engine...

    I busted out the dwell device and when the engine RPMs were bouncing around the dwell was stuck very low I can't remember the actual value but maybe 10 or something. I took out my Allen hex key and...

    After about 10 minutes when it warmed up, it sunk into this crappy idle:

  24. [Fuel] Fuel Mixture Problems - Car won't start when mixture set properly

    Ok, I've got a serious start problem with my engine. I think it has to do with the aftermarket cams.

    I was able to start my car this morning in the garage, cold it seemed to be idling great after...

    This is a photo of the back side of my start inhibit relay. I think I can see the modification, one of the old wires was cut and a RW wire was run in its place.
