    I'm guessing they went thru the powder coating oven with the bushings in. The bushings are (as you have noticed) somewhat difficult to remove, and would never tolerate being removed and reinstalled...

    Verify that the Lambda system is really working. You can set AFR with a CO meter and get it to read correctly, but if you are overcompensating for a dead Lambda system (O2 sensor/computer/frequency...

    Easiest way to get the old line out is to disconnect both ends, cut the connector off the front, and pull it out. Allow it to drain before you cut it so that it's just less messy. The replacement can...

    Id have to agree. If you take them apart for inspection you may as well replace them.

    The bushings, even if you buy them as whole arms, are not particularly expensive and if you have a high mile...

    Is there any chance your car is missing the metal brace that goes behind the engine? That's attached to the frame AND body and if missing would explain a lot. Hard to see how the frame could be way...

    That's an insane difference.

    BTW with all the same settings, with the car settled, I'm at 5-1/2" frame to floor.

    Strange things are afoot here. . . . .This is about where I'd start making...

    Just what we need, more complexity. Just check the tires once in a while, you're driving a pretty special car and that sort of maintenance shouldn't be an issue.

    The most important thing is to...

    Problem with using the fender as a reference is that they are not only different from car to car, they are different from side to side on the same car! The fiberglass body is notoriously un-uniform,...

    A square is good enough to see how far out it is. We've installed lots of the lowering kits and I don't ever recall seeing one with that much camber unless the car is really slammed. Typically I've...

    Rich - had I only known you'd be singing on stage, I'd made more of an effort to attend.

    That's actually an interesting way to look at it. The depreciation on buying a new car, over the first 5 years or so, is a LOT more than maintenance on a sorted DeLorean, even if you drive it all the...

    I was into the car from the first magazine articles in the late 70s. Fascinated by the rear engine/gullwing doors/stainless thing. I was able to see a car in person for the first time at the 1982...

    It's seized - combination of dissimilar metals (steel and aluminum, and the fact that rust is "bigger" than steel. Is the nut on the other end of the stud still in place? If so, best bet is to leave...

    At a relatively slow speed (15-20 mph) shift it to 3th gear, rev engine a bit, and let the clutch pedal out fast. If it slipping this is when you'll feel it. Based on your description I agree with...

    It's likely either cap or wires. Maybe even just a loose wire at the cap. You don't need to wait for rain. You probably have a perfectly sufficient garden hose handy.

    With the really good (brass/steel) conversion adapters, there is a schrader valve as part of the adapter. If you can see through the adapter, it's one of the POS aluminum ones. Throw it away.

    Now take a Dremel cutoff wheel and cut the rest of the rivets off flush with the stainless. The remaining parts will rattle around in the door for a while.

    2003 is 16 years ago!! Any fuel in there has turned into varnish (aka glue). Yeah, it's stuck. Wide open. Which is why there is gas in the oil if you've been trying to start the car.
