    I forgot to mention . I made this highly technical expensive tool for snaking the side mirror harness out of the door. Feel free to duplicate . Your results may vary lol

    What kind of materials did you use? any welding needed? Did you use a micrometer to get the dimensions exact?
    Heres a soooper tool I made for cleaning the duel tank.... http://dmctalk.org/attachment.php?at...2&d=1499026831

    My VIN:    2706

    So last weekend I drove my car with the wife on a 4 hour road trip to buffalo. We enjoyed the car all weekend and on Sunday went to get on the thruway and popped a number 7 fuse. I bypassed the rpm relay and the car started fine. Looked under the car and no leaking fuel. I couldnt find any obvious signs in the engine compartment. Decided to leave car at my familys house till I could have time to trouble shoot and fix it. Sent my RPM relay to Dave since it was one of his units to check out and he checked it and it was good. He suspected the WUR. The other day I get back to the car after sitting for a week and I plug a nos rpm relay in and disconnect the wur. Car starts up runs for 3 seconds then blows #7 fuse. I smell gas. I look under car and gas is dripping. I go behind the car and find the frequency valve had cracked and fuel was getting into the connector and blowing the circuit. I got super lucky . I haven't heard of this happening to someone else so I thought I would share my experience. I will also post a pic of a nos rpm relay vs Dave's so you can see what a major improvment Dave's unit is. After this experience on top of the fire extinguisher I already carry I will be installing a fire loop under the hood. Had that fuze not popped on the highway I could have had a major problem. 20180901_141928.jpg20180901_141932.jpg20180830_173957.jpg20180827_091710.jpg20180827_091440.jpg

    Wow Jimmy, you sure were lucky with that fuel leak problem. I havenít heard about anyone else having it either. Were you able to pinpoint where the frequency valve cracked? For example, I see you even have a new fuel line for it....do you suppose tightening the new hose on either end contributed to the cracking? Where did you get the fuel line? Etc.

    Iím really glad things turned out OK.

    Lucky is right, that corner of the engine has been the source of many Delorean engine fires from gas dripping on the exhaust. I have a Core spare engine from a car that had an engine fire. The fire was put out quickly but still managed too melt everything in the front right corner of the engine.

    I have a spare frequency valve if you're looking for one.

    Thanks guys I haven't had time to pull the frequency valve off and inspect it closer cause I moved to tn this weekend but I'll let you know when I dig into it and investigate the crack. My buddy RichNYS has a spair for me but I appreciate it.

    The valve definitely failed internally. Fuel was coming out of the plastic. Even shorted and got so hot it burnt and raised the plastic in the connector socket on the valve. Rich hooked me up with a valve and MCFrY is 20180910_111512.jpg20180910_111153.jpg20180910_114939.jpg20180910_115208.jpg20180910_113424.jpgback on the road.
