Elvis, To give you a little facts about the coils and what I have
measured.
#1. MSD Coil derived by .7 ohm resistance and the coil primary is wound to
hold the current with out any further resistance. Thus 45,000 volts. Also
derived by windings on the primary as you know.

#2. Pertronix coil. 1.5 ohm coil. 40,000 volt. Add the extra 1.5 ohm on
the
car and you will have a conservative average 30,000 volts. But, it is
designed to run with the internal resistance only.

#3. Bosch coil's all are 1.7 ohm and they want you to use an extra 1.8 ohm
to give the conservative 25,000 volts with loner life. Total 3.5 ohms.

Elvis, I forgot to say that the standard Bosch coil is only .7 ohms
resistance. The others are the performance coils. So, 1.0 ohm + .7 ohm =
1.7
ohm total.

Subject: FRAME THANX

[MODERATOR NOTE: Behold, a miracle!]

Hello all

I made two posts concerning the restoration of a Delorean frame.
One post was allowed by the moderators and the other post was not  
(it would be a miracle if the moderators allowed THIS message to be 
posted).

To make a long story short, I received NO replies, except for one 
guy who wanted to sell me "stuff."  

Somehow, he aquired my DIRECT e-mail address and I did appreciate it 
highly, that he took the time to respond to me.

As for the rest of the "D" owners who did not reply, I can only 
say "Thank you."

I KNOW now that my "D" problems I stand alone.

Once again,

Thanx,

Peter

#6201

P.S.  The COMPLETE RESTORATION OF MY DELOREAN BEGINS TODAY and I 
will no longer bother the rest of you "D" experts and owners for 
your assistance.  However, if you have any questions or need any 
assistance, I WILL gladly respond to ALL of you if I know the 
CORRECT answers to your questions.  Also, since I am an 
expert "cyber jock"  I have recently discovered the "Cornacopia" 
of "D" parts.  Why gee, just two weeks ago, I purchase (and had 
delivered) a Delorean frame in excellent condition.  

I paid $200 for the frame which is currently suspended from my 
garage ceiling.  My wife would not allow me to clutter up the garage 
floor because she needs the room for my babies strollers & "things."

This is # 6201 signing off.

Good bye

Bill, The way the Pertronix is made, you could run it with straight
voltage
and get more punch. My not last but 1 or 2 years instead of 4 or 5.

D, Now you know why I have O Rings and copper washers. They are available
but no body stocks them. The information you need is on the web site.

Subject: [DML] Missing hose?


Today I felt very adventurous so I decided to replace the auxiliary air
tube
O-ring, hoping it would solve my fast and irregular idle problem.  (The
tube
seemed to be flapping in the breeze and the idle speed regulator was not
screwed to anything.) I was told I could reuse the copper gaskets that
were
on the
fuel distributor when I took it off.  That supposes that you don't drop
them
when taking them off!  Well, I dropped two but hey no problem right?  I
just
called an auto parts store and they said sure we have them.  Two hours and
four
stores later no one had them, even though they said they did on the phone.
Fortunately, one bolt had an extra washer on it and I was able to find one
that I
dropped so I was back in business.  When I put it all together, it
actually
started up!  Now it still idles fast but isn't surging up as it did
before.

I noticed the heater control valve did not have a hose going to it.  I
could
not find any "extra" hose nearby.  The valve itself had a thin plastic
"stub"
on the back of it but it didn't look like it was hollow, as if a hose
would
even go on it.  Right next to it was a hole in the plastic that kinda
looked
like a hose connection broke off there.

Does anyone have a picture of the vacuum end of an original heater control
valve and where should the vacuum line be entering the engine compartment
on
its
way to the valve?

Thanks again,,

D² & 6530
