    I disagree on that. It's a completely fair point given Toyota's approach. Toyota has integrated EV drivetrains into multiple platforms. Those platforms are in turn modular with various configurations...

    I can't argue with the fact that people would be responsible for putting themselves into these scenarios. But that doesn't mean that they still won't happen.

    Most mountain trails are not straight...

    The problem isn't that manufacturers haven't coordinated together on a single system, it's that they can't commit to their own platforms. Toyota did a great job with the Prius where they first...

    Agreed. It'll definitely grow from commuting to certain levels of interstate travel, but there are somethings that EVs just can't do. I can't wait for the first story of a Tesla truck that dies out...

    Petroleum fuels aren't going anywhere any time...

    Petroleum fuels aren't going anywhere any time soon. Particularly as far as the government is concerned. ICE vehicles contribute far too much in fuel taxes to be outlawed anytime soon. Let alone the...

    Why in the hell didn't you just start the conversation like this instead?!

    Example: Interiors are easy, particularly the seats. If you don't want off the shelf leather skins from a vendor, any...

    Yup. People who are serious about ownership take a completely different path than this.




    Hell, can we even call them ghosts now? Perhaps they're non-binary interdenominational entities that...

    It is matter of perception though, I suppose. The triangle is the rule of thumb, but in order to complete a triangle geometrically, no matter which type, all three sides must be touching. Much akin...
  9. I agree. Looking at the engine as-is in pure...

    I agree. Looking at the engine as-is in pure stock form, we have the visual error of a hunting idle speed that deviates more than 50 RPMs from the mean, which manifests itself as continued severe...

    You know there are two main rights of passage for every DeLorean owner: working in the Valley of Death, and reading my posts until the end.

    Doesn't matter what I say though. Or anyone else for...
  11. [General] Long story short, you are not classic car owner...

    Long story short, you are not classic car owner material. I'm sorry, but that's just the truth from what I've read. Can that change for you? I don''t know. But at this stage of the game, I wouldn't...

    UGH! I despise the tetrahedron model!

    If the values of the individual components are sufficient enough to induce oxidation, that in and of itself should be considered the chain reaction which...
  13. I can dig it. What I was doing previously was...

    I can dig it. What I was doing previously was breaking down the individual values of the unique butterflies into a total sum for Throttle. Just as I was also doing for the idle screws. The reason...
  14. n should be the sum of all air passing through...

    n should be the sum of all air passing through the metering plate to mechanically influence the flow of fuel, regardless if which path it takes to final destination. Add up the sums of the throttle...

    NOTE: If you're intimidated by all of this math, or simply don't care about these formulas, that's fine. But please skip down to the last paragraph.

    We could go down an entire rabbit hole here...

    Don't forget to lubricate the inside of the cable sheath, and adjust the play on the cable once the new handle is installed so that you don't preload the bellcrank. Otherwise it can cause the locks...
  17. No, you're absolutely right. Both on the...

    No, you're absolutely right. Both on the function, as well as the formula being incorrect.

    I was counting upon the ISM subtracting CFM from it's metering due to the brass screws being opened....
  18. No man, I love conversations like this. It's fun...

    No man, I love conversations like this. It's fun to talk of theories, and likewise just discover new things. I've been wrong before about some things, and I'll be wrong again, but I learn and enjoy...

    BINGO!

    As mentioned, that hose from the evap canister is for the purge line. It not only purges the vapors collected whilst the vehicle is parked, but it also prevents excess vapor pressures from...
  20. You're absolutely correct. If the bypass screws...

    You're absolutely correct. If the bypass screws have been opened to increase airflow, the ISM will adjust accordingly by reducing it's airflow to get back to the preset idle speed.

    So opening the...

    Thank you. That does mean allot to me.

    We've still never met, yet for about 20 years you've been one of my mentors. Particularly about ensuring what I already have works, and learning how to fix...
  22. No, nothing at all changes. In fact, this is what...

    Yep. I used to have a nasty problem with the engine rubberbanding when it dipped too low in it's Idle RPMs when coming down from high idle. Occasionally it would even stall out. I spliced in that one...

    Ron summed this up quickly with this reply:



    I think that right now we have a confusion between metering apparatuses. Specifically the Metering Plate, the Throttle Plates, and the IAC. Whatever...
  24. All air that is delivered to the Idle Speed...

    All air that is delivered to the Idle Speed Circuit is pulled in after the Fuel Metering plate. The inlet is below the plate. All air is metered and accounted for to maintain AFR. The problem with...
  25. I see no reason why you wouldn't be able to...

    I see no reason why you wouldn't be able to remove both heads simultaneously. Granted you would need to secure the liners, but it should be quite doable. Now if your concern is that you need to...
