RE: [DML] distributor cap and rotor

I also don't remove the fuel lines. You can normally just undo the fuel
system strattling arms and the W pipe or horns up front and then you can
move the complete system forward and up. This will allow you enough room to
replace the cap and rotor.

I would not recommend removal of the fuel lines as it is not 
necessary and requires you to replace all those copper seals, about 
$20, and you risk exposure of dirt and debris to the fuel system 
after the fuel filter. If you simply remove the throttle tubes and 
linkage then maneuver the mixture unit, hoses and all, out of your 
way you can access the distributor. In some cases it may be 
necessary to remove the CSV line as Jeff stated but not always 
required. I've done this procedure on at least 20 DeLoreans and have 
never removed the fuel lines, short of the occasional CSV hose. But 
you defiantly need to invest in a workshop manual and since all the 
vendors pretty much have the same workshop manual just buy one from 
your favorite.
Best of luck
