    Yes they do! I just found a tear through the center stitch of my passenger side cover.

    I ordered a set of grey swatches for our mutual consideration :)

    Right? And sometimes they have an impression crushed in to them leading to an irregular sealing surface. Which is kind of the idea.

    When they're 10 cents in bulk, spending time inspecting used...

    Some carbs have a port to capture evaporated fuel vapors from the bowl. If yours doesn’t, that fitting on the vapor canister gets capped. On the OEM DeLorean canister that fitting is capped from...

    Almost any older-style (non electrical solenoid controlled) charcoal canister should work. No reason to find a DeLorean specific canister. You don't need the original mounting panel either as there...

    Normally I don't like to add "hail mary" hypotheses, but this one is just weird enough to throw in another consideration:

    Assuming:
    -Proper distributor cap
    -Proper rotor phase angle
    -Known good...

    What problems did you have with Denso? I ran IT20 Iridiums from 2005 until this year when I switched to 1-step colder, no issue. Have ITV22s in my ecoboost motor.

    I usually use autotune with cell change resistance on "hard" or "very hard" to limit excessive table massaging. I know some of y'all don't like AT but I find it a useful solo cruise-state...

    That's to be expected. Doing that shifted you out of the WOT section and into something leaner.

    It looks like you just need more fuel. Once you've double-checked that timing is good I would...

    It's just a healthy measurement of your local atmosphere :)

    There are a few other things I noticed but I didn't want to say analyze much while on a 1-dimentional fuel table. A few other quick...

    Both logs show MAP at atmospheric pressure (about 101kPa) while the engine is running.

    If you find a charger that you like but it doesn't fit snguly, I posted a little hack that works with many devices.

    Should work with anything having a negative mechanism like this. Doesn't work...

    The Norma clamps are worth the price for these hoses! They're narrow enough that you can even install 2 at most VOD locations as a backup.

    No, but you'll almost certainly not be able to get it out that way :(

    The Battery Tender Plus came with a hardwire kit. Just a basic length of wire with eyelets on one side, a fuse on the positive, and the 2-pin connector with weather cover.

    Pointing out service manual inaccuracies is never pointless! The forum has already figured out everywhere you can stick LEDs so we might as well talk about mechanics now and then ;)

    Well... sorta :D The big hose won't be under any meaningful vacuum unless the air/oil sep matrix is plugged or the engine is under heavy load. Inside the air filter housing, the breather tube gets...

    There is about a 1mm (IIRC) restriction orifice at the connection to the cold start tube. Pop the vacuum line off and you can see it's pulling through a little tiny port. It's a decent amount of...

    To add - the vacuum side should be able to breathe freely through the oil fill cap from both the side and bottom ports.

    The cold start tube is tied to all 6 cylinders and provides vacuum for both the vapor recovery and the PCV systems. In the DMCH store photo you can see the "bump" where the cold start tube holding...

    Oops, I should have said "leave it open to air". You could also set the filter box aside and leave it hooked to that.

    Just to toss another anecdote in:

    I killed 3 perfectly good spiral-cell type batteries by not paying attention to charge level. Hey, I was in college and had more important things to focus on.
