    It is my understanding that the Sanden SD7H15 series uses more pistons than the stock compressor, and in general works much better.

    In my experience, a weird idle problem combined with excess fuel in exhaust was a frequency valve issue, which was eventually traced back to a problem in the Lambda circuit. See if the problem goes...

    Regarding the numbers you found:

    The frame number is from the frame manufacturer and is irrelevant to the DeLorean. It was simply for inventory purposes. Same goes for the engine number.

    It tells you if one of your radiator fans has failed. IIRC it does so by comparing the current going to each fan. If current is lower for one side, it triggered the light.

    Pitot tubes are useless without a static port. An anemometer would be a better choice. But as you mentioned this still wouldnít provide any meaningful data.

    I think a more likely explanation is that a cold engine has more resistance than a warm one, and fuel vaporizes better in a warm engine.

    You can tie the mechanism back if youíd like. Itís easy enough to do. The rear lock will work as normal, as it has nothing to do with the front lock. Both inside and outside handles respond as normal.
