    Rich - had I only known you'd be singing on stage, I'd made more of an effort to attend.

    That's actually an interesting way to look at it. The depreciation on buying a new car, over the first 5 years or so, is a LOT more than maintenance on a sorted DeLorean, even if you drive it all the...

    I was into the car from the first magazine articles in the late 70s. Fascinated by the rear engine/gullwing doors/stainless thing. I was able to see a car in person for the first time at the 1982...

    It's seized - combination of dissimilar metals (steel and aluminum, and the fact that rust is "bigger" than steel. Is the nut on the other end of the stud still in place? If so, best bet is to leave...

    At a relatively slow speed (15-20 mph) shift it to 3th gear, rev engine a bit, and let the clutch pedal out fast. If it slipping this is when you'll feel it. Based on your description I agree with...

    It's likely either cap or wires. Maybe even just a loose wire at the cap. You don't need to wait for rain. You probably have a perfectly sufficient garden hose handy.

    With the really good (brass/steel) conversion adapters, there is a schrader valve as part of the adapter. If you can see through the adapter, it's one of the POS aluminum ones. Throw it away.

    Now take a Dremel cutoff wheel and cut the rest of the rivets off flush with the stainless. The remaining parts will rattle around in the door for a while.

    It's all a guessing game until you clean it all up and find the leak. My guess at this point based on your writeup? .. Fans failed (anything from the otterstat to the fan relay or just wiring...

    I wired my personal car like this in about 1998, actually using Darryl's instruction. Still no overloads, no melted wiring, etc. I do maintain the connections. I was likewise tired of feeling the...

    2003 is 16 years ago!! Any fuel in there has turned into varnish (aka glue). Yeah, it's stuck. Wide open. Which is why there is gas in the oil if you've been trying to start the car.

    You can...

    Auto trans plugs are the same as the oil drain and block coolant drains. 8mm male socket. Technically 5/16" is larger but should work.

    Unplug the wire from the top of the master cylinder. If the light goes off, it's low (should be pretty obvious at this point). As the pads wear it's normal for the level to drop. How much have you...

    It doesn't have to be a particularly strong part since it's just attached to plastic anyway. I've made one or two from aluminum, like you said the hardest part is drilling a square hole. Tiny files...

    It's worth opening it up then, gives you a chance to see the teeth on the sliding gear/synchros, check the roll pin (double?) etc. before you put it back in the car.
