    Thanks. That sounds familiar now. You saved me from adding the jumper and replacing old relays without checking for what was rewired.

    I've got a black relay in my blue fan fail module socket. Is that just as good as a jumper to replace the fan fail module?

    Summit Tires (Sure Tire) replied back confirming they don't offer a 235 tire. The matching 225/195 tires are Summit HP Radial Trac II. Although this is a US based tire company the tires are...

    Has anyone heard of Summit Tires? They appear to be a small US based company. They have matching tires in 195 and 225.

    I am going to send them the obligatory DeLorean owner's email where we...

    I didn't realize Fuzion was Bridgestone. Good to know. Looks like they have a matching 225 tire.

    Yokohama is making a snow tire in the correct 195 size as well. It could possibly come from...

    I just spent a couple of hours the other day looking.

    I can't find the BF Goodrich front tires in that size anywhere. The 235 fronts are available and also available as reproduced by Coker.

    That's great to hear. Beyond Tom's LED and concave mirror products, I've always appreciated his overall knowledge for the past 20 years or so. His welding repair job in my VOD has impressively...

    Great research. Does that ignition coil wire look and fit exactly like the original? I could never find a good cross reference part number except for the one listed in the Advanced Auto listing.

    Yep, for sure. It's going to be a lot of work but I don't think I can buy all the parts at one time. So, it will be split up into smaller projects over a longer period of time.

    You mean the welding? or what needs to be done in the future? I am hoping I don't have to do much to the engine block other than clean it up a little bit and do a valve adjustment.

    I appreciate that. Looks like I have a bit of work to get setup. Since I have an auto and I assume the original muffler, it appears to be in the way to turn the crankshaft. There's no way I can...

    I am looking at anywhere from $3-7K to get it on the road and that's not counting a few components. The best case is probably a bit low because I cannot un-stick the Fuel Distributor plunger and...
