[DML] waterpump issues/steering wheel column

I was out and about the other day when I pulled out of the local gas 
station after getting something to drink..I noticed the engine was 
sounding a little funny but didn't really think much about it until 
I noticed that the temperature guage was rising...FAST.  

So I pull over, thinking that I was leaking coolant somewhere and 
that was the cause of the overheating and was checking the engine 
compartment when I noticed the water pump pulley was completely 
sheared off (I'm almost 100 percent positive by the rusted state of 
the waterpump that it's an original one) and had miraculously 
managed to snag on one of the belts.  

So I get the car towed back to my garage and leave it until I can 
fix it, which happened to be this weekend.  I work a really weird 
schedule, so this was really my only opportunity to get it 
fixed..the fact that the PA tech session was in a week and this 
could not have happened at a worse time!  This is where two 
individuals come in.

I would formally like to thank Rich Acuti and Mike Cohee for helping 
me to get the new waterpump installed.  Words cannot describe my 
thanks for their help, but I want to publicly say THANK YOU! as well 
as YOU ROCK ;)  Since I had to work on Friday night, I gave them my 
keys and garage door opener and they were nice enough to come over 
while I was at work and disassemble my engine to get the waterpump 

Then as if that wasn't enough, Rich took all of his day on Saturday 
to help me install one of Hervey's new stainless pulley waterpumps 
(Thanks to you too John for shipping that out quick in such a dire 
emergency!), when he had planned to do his A/C that day.
And of course Mike helped me put the rest of the car on today, 
taking time out of his busy day...and has helped me on numerous 
times getting my car up to par.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Bill 
Robertson, who I had the privelege of meeting about 3 weeks ago when 
he came up this way and helped me install a new angle drive and 
steering column bushing.  This was no easy job and took several 
hours!  I also got to see his carbeurated Delorean and must say I'm 
impressed.  The amount of room he has with his carbeurated engine 
leaves lots of imagination for upgrades and modifications most PRVs 
probably couldn't do in the engine compartment :)

So again, THANK YOU!  You are all great amazing people and it's good 
to know that the Delorean community has people like you to keep "the 
dream" alive!!
