    If the otterstat pipe was cool to the touch, it would seem logical that the thermostat is stuck closed. Maybe replace the thermostat before going after the water pump. The pump usually only fails at...

    Hi Joe,

    I remember you from D Weekend.

    There should be no air at all in the cooling system, aside from the coolant tank. Coolant should only enter gas phase in the coolant tank when the cap...

    My recommendation would be to make sure that the Lambda ECU isn't losing power and ground while the car is running.

    I don't see how such slight damage over such a large area could be repaired for less than the cost of a replacement door.

    Important to note: mineral oil is not compatible with any type of PAG oil. Mineral oil can't be dissolved in R134a, likewise PAG oil dissolves poorly in R-12. Ester oil works in both. Ester oil is a...

    Andy,

    No discernible performance difference between the SD5 vs SD7 compressors in terms of vent temps provided the condenser was updated, in my experience. The biggest difference I noticed is the...

    Sanden 4708 is the one to get. There is a 5-cylinder Sanden compressor that works too, but the 7-cylinder runs smoother IMHO.

    If you're not replacing the condenser with a parallel flow unit, you...

    Man, I'd just replace it.

    Mothership sells this hose for $162, DGo for $140. With the original condenser and an empty system, I'd estimate two hours max to replace with a split hose, not...

    -other things that you'll want to service while the head is off (removing the...

    That distributor is for an 83-86 Volvo 760. It should work, although it is not optimized for the DeLorean's intake or cam profile.

    Yes, put the large banjo on the fuel return. The frequency valve...

    I have to agree with Dave on this one.

    Would recommend not lifting or supporting the engine off the crank pulley, if you do end up doing the pan gasket. The pulley is sheet metal, and the engine...

    I can't say I've had a problem with Heli-Coils, or coil type inserts, as long as they are installed properly and not over-torqued. Time-serts are a better solution for sure. However they require...
