    The mounting points for my original antenna were not grounded. So I had to run the new antenna black ground wire to a good metal ground. I ran it back to the area where the original relay was...

    I've had experience with the Amazon Fir trees for another application. If you look at several of the vendors, you can find some that give very detailed and precise dimensions of the product.

    I start to worry when using cheaters to create massive torque that the fastener will snap or twist. Somehow the impact wrench seems safer.

    If you've seen a video of someone measuring dwell on a Delorean, it always shows an Actron CP7605. I got mine from Amazon for $23, but they're no longer available there. You really want an analog...

    Sorry, I can't remember exactly where I did that. I may have had a splice somewhere that let me tap into it. I'll try to have a look later to see if I can remember.

    [Fuel] Although you replaced the O2 sensor, you still...

    Although you replaced the O2 sensor, you still might want to verify the sensor input to the ECU. It should rise to about a half-volt after warmup.

    I haven't done it myself, but perhaps you could...

    [Suspension] How much tire radial runout is too much?

    My D has a very noticeable 'waddle', at speeds of 20 MPH and up. The tires are very recent, but the car did sit for perhaps 3 months, until a week ago, without rolling. I can measure 0.050" of...

    Thanks to all you guys.

    At this point, it is a moot issue for me. With the current weather here in Houston, I'll probably drive the D every 2-3 days. And in that mode, it starts and runs...

    I suppose you're right. What I was thinking was to do step 3.c, on page D:02:01 (apply vacuum directly to WUR lower chamber) to force the lower control pressure for starting. But by the time I go...

    Thanks Ron and Dave M.

    I concur that initially unplugging the WUR will help with the startup after hibernation, and in fact have observed it. But, if I take a gamble and don't do that, does...

    I started it up yesterday, after a 2-day rest, and it started and idled instantly. I did not give it extra 'priming' cycles.

    It's not clear what the differences are between a 2-day rest, and a...
  12. [Fuel] Actually, I can almost always count on a good...

    Actually, I can almost always count on a good burst of immediate start-up firing, thanks I presume to a working cold-start injection system. What occurs next seems to be the main issue. If it idles...
  13. [Fuel] Will excessive cranking cause premature leaning by the WUR?

    While troubleshooting my cold-start rough idle issue, I decided to test the WUR by disconnecting the electrical connector to the WUR. I then managed a start, then quickly went back to reconnect the...

    I just spoke with Steve at DMCH. He assures me that 69psi is just fine for primary fuel pressure. He's given me some other suggestions of things to look at for my rough idle problems.
  15. [Fuel] I'll see what DMCH has to say - they might want...

    I'll see what DMCH has to say - they might want to look at the FD since they were the ones who rebuilt it.

    I've got absolutely nothing against you guys in the UK! I grew up not far from you - my...

    Thanks guys. I have a call in to DMCH on this. Dave, your past experience on this seemed the least encouraging that this would do any good. Others have reported some improvement when raising the...
  17. [Fuel] Primary Fuel Pressure Regulator Shims - Source?

    My primary pressure is a bit low (69 psi) since replacing the Fuel Distributor. It was well over 70 with the previous FD, although I don't recall the exact reading. So I want to shim the regulator...

    Kudos to the advertisers for that! If more commercials were like that, and the old Jack Links, Most Interesting Man, etc., then I wouldn't automatically skip over them!

    I finished up mine a couple of weeks ago using the Joann's material with 3M spray. I coated my original panels with several coats of resin because my panels smelled bad, and they were a bit 'mushy'....

    I think they might do a toe-in, but they did refer me to a proper shop that found a caster problem (Ram pickup).

    That's a bunch of double-talk to get you to accept tires that have been sitting in the warehouse for 3 years. On a recent visit to Discount to get an alignment on another vehicle, they said they...

    I found that I could hook a voltmeter to the O2 sensor output, while watching the dwell with the dwell meter. The sensor output should fluctuate around the 0.5 v mark, and while doing so, the dwell...

    I recently replaced my 22 yr-old tires on my recently reborn D with Ohtsu FP0612 (225/60/15 rear, 195/60/14 front), on stock wheels with stock suspension. I wanted matching appearance, and to me the...

    I'm partway through the process now. I find that scraping the old foam and glue off is a bit tedious. The underlying board is still plenty stiff, but feels damp to the touch. I do intend to coat...
