    He got the car from Sharkey and the Indiana group and replacing the old lines with DPI's set was pretty SOP for them, maybe Kolin can chime in with more details.

    I chatted with Josh and he suggested I might need a valve adjustment. It's been about 20,000 miles since it was done. I don't want to attempt it myself and my experience with local shops has been...

    Yeah, it's with the car parked and revving it up to 2500 - 3000 rpm (such as while checking dwell or doing an emissions test) . I've never really noticed it much while driving but idk if it's because...

    Yeah, I've noticed that before but what I was specifically concerned about was hearing the noise when I hold the throttle steady at 2500, unless whatever small variation in pressure is enough to make...

    Ah, OK. I think I can rule that out. Braking seems normal and I drove it to Wendover last month (100 miles each way) and didn't experience any of that.

    Oh, forgot to mention, my timing was slightly off (between 14 and 16) so I adjusted that too.

    I'd notice other symptoms if my brakes were dragging, right?

    I changed the sensor and the ground check still reads around 52. Weird. The normal dwell swing got a little better, around 33-59. Still think I'm hearing the misfire. I did replace all the injector...

    Thanks, guys. The sensor has about 24,000 miles on it. It didn't look super cruddy when I pulled it but maybe it's time.

    I'm using a Centech digital meter, on the 4 cyl scale. As I said, the other...

    Oh, there was a thread on a Facebook group (DeLorean Fanatics?) about that a couple years ago. 200 incredulous comments later, the dude admitted he was just trolling. :rolleyes1:

    Last time he said your emails had been getting stuck in his spam filter. You have his cell phone number, right? I'd try giving him a call if you haven't recently.
