Binnacle removal – PREPARE for the LEDs

By admin No comments

The binnacle has been removed! Successfully might I add! The job was a bit challenging, six small 7mm nuts and washers hold the binnacle in to the dash. I read that it was best to take out the kneepads, but that actually ended up being more pain than it was worth. If you have a […]

Oil Leak – Found

By admin No comments

After cleaning up the oil pan constantly and tightening the bolts thinking it was the seal leaking, I found out about another ‘DeLorean thing’ last week. A common place for oil to leak is from a faulty seal on the oil pressure light sensor. This is part # 102462 & 102461 in the manual. It […]

Parking brake fixed & tie rods replaced

By admin No comments

Finished the parking brake job today. It was very easy, just had to remove the two bolts holding the arms with the pads in, and unbolt the parking brake cable. The whole unit slides out. Very nice setup on the DeLorean. Replaced the pads, and popped it back in. With a new parking brake retaining […]

Small fix

By admin No comments

I replaced the battery bolts that hold the positive and negative wires to the car battery. The bolts that had came with the battery the previous owner purchased were pretty stripped, and the positive wire would pop out if jarred enough. I did not want this to happen when driving, or the DeLorean would just […]

So, today I decided to diagnose a slight squeal I have been hearing when driving 40+. I couldn’t really tell where it was coming from, but noticed whe I went down a sidestreet slower than 40, I could hear it echoing off other cars, so it must be present always just at higher speeds its […]

Clean stainless is pretty

By admin No comments

Had some time today to work on blending the stainless in areas that had stains or marks. It worked pretty good, but is very time consuming. I worked hard on the hood as it had several sections with spot marks that were detracting. As other owners have said, blending the hood causes the X brace […]

Tachometer (maybe) fixed

By admin No comments

I was instructed to try cleaning the tachometer ground wire to stop it from freaking out on me, so that is what I did. It involved removing the rear parcel shelf wall, which was very easy after removing the four screws that hold it in, located below the net hooks. The wall pulled forward, and […]
