    Nice! Are you going to bring it to DCS so we can all gawk? :)

    I'd just had my compressor replaced the week before, which I was grateful for when we were doing the slow-speed drives. Ironically I'd made the extra effort to get it fixed more for the sake of my...

    Despite numerous hurdles and setbacks, we got this show on the road! Three DeLoreans were able to attend and our club president joined us for part of the way in his Tesla. A bit smaller group than...

    I actually had that happen just now on a long road trip. The mechanic who was with us said it would be a quick weld and his shop might not even charge me for it so I didn't even bother contacting...

    All right, I won't worry too much that there's some weird vacuum leak or something (although as problems go, I guess getting 30+ mpg would be a pretty good one to have). I had that happen once before...

    At least one, LOL. When we were sitting in line waiting to go through the one-way tunnel in Zion, one of the other guys said they saw a truck pass us and end up on the yellow line as the driver...

    Good news, the noise was most likely just the exhaust shroud rattling, because one of the mounts had broken. The bolt was still there, just not actually holding on to anything. Still have the fuel...

    A postscript to this story - a yard near me got an 86 in with the same engine as mine, so I went and grabbed the valve cover for $11. Suck it, Phil's Salvage! (I didn't even really need it but it was...

    If you're mass-producing them, be careful about using the DMC logo, because Houston's been C&Ding people for using the ones they own the trademark on, even if it's not for profit. There might be some...

    Gave up and took it to the shop today, refrigerant was slightly low (1.7 instead of 2 lbs) but he didn't think that would be enough to cause the clutch not to engage. He tried jumping it and whacking...

    Who did you email? We have a new membership director this year (Gordon C. has stepped down and Linda P. is handling it now.) I'm on the board so if you want to pm me with your contact info I'll...

    Arrgh, I spent $25 on the clutch holder tool from Autozone but I still can't get the damn thing loose. It uses a 19mm nut and I can't seem to get enough leverage. I don't want to use the breaker bar...

    Well, so much for its miraculous recovery. On the way to work it blew cold for the first few miles, then crapped out. When I got there I tried tapping on it but nothing happened. Probably a flaky...

    Well, I have no idea how or why, but it magically started working today. It occurred to me that I might have heard it click into place last time I tried turning the switches on with the key on but...

    Thanks, everybody. I found some Chinese writing on the compressor wire so maybe it really was just a cheap one that coincidentally had the coil go bad. (Josh @ DPI verified that it wasn't one of...

    Yeah, I clipped one end of the jumper wire to the battery jump-start post and the other end to the pigtail plug (this one) 56275 and nothing happened. The motor was off at the time, was it supposed...

    The fans do come on, I don't have my meter with me but the test light comes on if I stick the probe into the switch side of the connector. The clutch just doesn't engage.

    I'll try jumping the...

    Thanks, guys. I wasn't sure if it would be a greater sin to threadjack or to start another thread about a similar issue.

    Just one more question - if I'm getting current on the wire that comes out...
