    No, it must be done from underneath. You can see one fitting from above.

    My VIN:    SCEDT26T3BD006009

    Mechanic in Atlanta.

    Guys, Gals, I'm new to this form, yet I recently had a fuel system and cooling issue, and had Scott Delong's Auto Service on Post Oak Trit Rd. 770-509-0222 work on my '81. If you look at their Facebook page, you'll see my car. I mostly delt with Scott at first, then mostly his very capable son and partner, Ryan They did a fantastic job. They could have totally gouged me (I told them it was one or both fuel pumps) but they found the root cause of the fuel system issue ... A small leak, causing loss of pressure, a 6 inch hose and 2 clamps fixed it. They also had to completely flush the cooling system ... They let it run idle for a while, then reflushed the entire system again to ensure no air pockets. The young, very talented mechanics were all quite enthuasticastic to have it in the shop and took very special care of the car. Tell them Jeff Green sent you. You will be impressed, and the price was less then 1/2 of what I expected ... With towing, and yes, they sent a high end flat bed to pick it up. You will not have to worry about the care they will give your DMC ... Good luck.

    I was wondering about that too
    VIN 2743, B/A, Frame 2227, engine 2320

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Once I get back from Utah for the winter I will be able to come down to work on ATL Deloreans. I have finished restoring the second Delorean except for painting the facias and possibly lowering it. so I will try to bring that one to a spring/summer tech session.

    I spoke with a guy named Jim at Theo Automotive in Peachtree City. He said he has almost 30 years of Volvo mechanic experience and has worked on many Deloreans over the years and he is quite familiar with the PRV engine. Anyway, it sounds promising.

    And two of them were mine! Jim Little used to be with AllSpeed Auto Works nearby, and he has done minor work on both of my cars over the years. I have not visited him at Theo's yet, but I would not hesitate to do so. He is the most DMC-friendly mechanic I have found in my area, and it doesn't hurt that he is only 3 miles from my house.

    Whatever you do, don't take it to American Resto Mods in Buford.
    I had the front rotors and bearings replaced by NOR-WEST in Suwanee. Did a good job and took care of my car.
    Good so Far!!!!!!
