Re: [DML] Thermostat

As far as a cross reference on the engine, I would tell the parts store that 
the engine was from a 1980 Volvo 260 (either that or a GLE) with the B28F V-6. 
 Most of the tune up parts and stuff like the thermostat are common between 
the DeLorean and the 1980 Volvo 260.  Besides the DeLorean, the Volvo 260 was 
about the only other car imported to the US with the PRV engine with K-jetronic 
fuel injection.  

I would always recommend going through the DeLorean vendors, since they know 
our cars better then anyone else out there, however it is always nice to know 
a cross reference when you are in a bind for time.

Note:  Even though most parts stores will have the Volvo 260 listed in their 
computer systems, most of the parts for the engine are not in stock, unless 
you are at a location such as a NAPA or CarQuest warehouse, and even then a good 
number of the parts have to be ordered.  There arn't many Volvo 260's on the 
road any more, in fact there very well might be more DeLoreans on the road at 
this point.  In most cases it will take a few days to get the parts that you 
need.  So from a time standpoint you would be better off calling a DeLorean 
vendor, plus you know that you'll get the right part the first time.

Hope that helps,
