    I did a 100% interior Dynamat project back in 2012 and can definitely agree with what others have said: it didn't make the car quiet, by any means, but the effect of "Stuck a 20 gallon rubbermaid tub...

    Years ago I laser printed high-resolution versions of these images on transparency film, then used that film to expose Solargraphics cyanotype paper which I then framed. Came out as beautiful...

    I actually did exactly that on Dave Mís advice; backed the idle screw all the way out (damaged it in the process because Iím stupid, but will replace it next time) and then put it in ever so slightly...

    Solid suggestion, but have to give credit to Clint as he came up with it right away [emoji23]

    Wrapped the injector seal with two wraps of yellow teflon tape (I was at the store anyway and it was 2...

    Thanks, folks. Not sure how the cup could be bent but anything is possible at this age I guess. Do I need to find the fuel safe Teflon tape or will the standard white stuff work? I guess if thereís...

    [Fuel] Leaky Injector Seals?

    Hey everyone, me again. So now that the idle motor issue is solved, Iím on to the remaining vacuum leak - injector seal #5. Iíve never had any problems with this before, but during a recent valley...

    Installed the new idle motor from DeLorean Go today (BTW, those folks are just incredible - they ship to me in CA faster from the UK than Amazon, and thereís an Amazon warehouse in walking distance!)...

    Not so much dumb as funny I guess, but fits better here than the 'good/positive' thread. Was at Chevron treating 2100 to its yearly bottle of uncut Techron and a guy driving a funeral delivery truck...

    Ah, he lives! :) I still think there may be some aspect of the throttle plates not closing completely too, but Iím trying to change as few things as possible at a time to be sure I find the real...

    Hey folks, sorry for the long, long delay on this thread but wanted to share some new insights for anyone interested. Clint and I checked the car out with a smoke machine today and found three vacuum...

    Hello again, everyone!

    Another reminder that one of my favorite events of the year is coming up - the United British Sports Car Club All-British show, in Dixon. You might recall that last year's...

    It's not a bad theory given how little I show you of what I'm doing, but the idle motor is quite securely attached to the bracket/intake, so to my calibrated arm it feels like I'm only pressing on...

    Hey all, I hope everyone had a great holiday break! I was away for a few days, but am back and thinking about this issue again.

    Didnít your mother ever teach you not to pipette by mouth? Was that just me? Scientist parents, lol. Seems reasonable enough, I could give that a shot.

    Just a question - Iíve never done a smoke...

    Hey Ron - so I didnít test the vacuum *inbound* to the solenoid from the valley when the car was cold on the first test. That was my screwup as it left me with no control value for the cold symptoms....

    Alrighty. Just did this all again. No vacuum at the center nipple on the solenoid cold, vacuum at the WUR instead. Unplugging the vacuum supply to the WUR during warmup significantly worsened the...

    Roger that, I will test the vacuum again when the car has sat for a few more hours to cool. If there is *not* vacuum at the WUR when cold, is it possible the hoses were simply placed on the thermal...
  22. [Engine] Another high idle thread - how-to on butterfly plate springs?

    Ok, so... there is vacuum to the center post of the vacuum solenoid, even at cold idle. Thatís the hose that comes directly from the thermal switch.

    Does this mean something is hooked up...

    I think I may have made a mistake in my test protocol here, so the engine is cooling down and I will try again in a few hours. Here's what I did/observed:

    All good tips. Will verify the vacuum routing is right from the thermal switch in the valley, everything on the top end is visibly correct. All the hoses are new silicone, nothing brittle or cracked....

    So, disconnect the quadrant arm and leave it running at idle for a while, without any throttle movement?
