    Probably not cheap to get DOT approval. Do you think your LED headlights are DOT approved. Maybe the housing is but how can they test it without the light source installed?

    I like the new tin plated pins and don't see the need to have that plastic shell. Pulling one pin off is fine just pulling on the wire.

    I just cut it off and install a new pin (same as relay pins) and put shrink tubing over it.

    A lot of older engines have bolts going into the water jacket. They just use a sealer on the bolt threads. I use Permatex non hardening sealer in that case.

    I've always though about setting up a test jig for those valves. I would guess they open around 20" of vacuum and then would let a fixed amount of air past. Just that someday we will run out of...

    With installing the inserts you have a much stronger connection. You can use more force if the bolt requires it because the insert is bonding to more area of the soft aluminum. When we were making...

    It's possible but usually ECU failures are the driver transistors from a shorted idle motor. But your running out of things to check so if you can get another owner who will let you borrow his ECU...

    I've not seen bad deceleration springs that don't look bad but maybe that is your problem. Can you press on the springs to make sure they have some tension? But since the problem came on suddenly...

    Try pulling the vacuum advance hose going to the ignition distributor and see if that reduces the idle RPM.

    Keep backing out that curb idle screw.

    RPM will increase because the oil gets thinner...

    I don't think an induction heater would work on brass or aluminum. Probably not even stainless steel.

    I agree. Probably puts the heat right where it's needed. Unless it's so much heat it welds that spot.

    If your engine hunts right away on a cold engine than probably the idle motor is sticking cold.

    My car will hunt for a minuet or two right after the engine warms up enough to start the lambda...

    There is no spring action in the idle motor. So when you pull power it should stay put but vacuum forces and engine vibration may change the position. If you happen to pull the connector slowly or...

    The throttle plates should not have to jamb shut all the way. If they do it tends to make them stick closed. I found greasing the throttle return spring on the throttle body is very helpful getting...

    I found CAD plating on bolts would come right off the threads on first use. Those bolts were also AN rated aircraft hardware.

    The standard AUX relays are 70 amp rated units so I would guess you just got a defective replacement unit. Yes swapping the smaller control wires will swap what functions turn on with each key...

    So are the ones you are taking about have a coiled spring in them? I would think all the struts that slow down at the end of the stroke have some oil to provide that function and they all use gas to...
  22. [Engine] Ignition coil voltage

    Here is what you should expect for coil voltage on our DeLorean.

    Assuming you have the stock blue coil, 12.5 volt battery voltage, engine not running, stock wiring and stock ignition ECU, stock...

    Mine has very little affect even when measuring dwell. I do cover it to finalize the dwell adjustment.

    The mixture plug is not a very large leak. You can shine a light down around the pipe in the dark and press the air plate down and look for light inside the FD.

    Your problem sounds like a large vacuum leak. Check that you have all your hoses connected and check the pipe of agony.
