Re: [DML] "D" may stand for Divorce....the ongoing 6859 saga

       I doubt that you'll find a shortage of DeLorean owners who havent 
faced the same problems that you're running into.  If it helps at all, your 
DeLorean sounds like it's in better shape then mine was when I purchased it 8 years 
       Trust you best judgment on whether or not you want to pull the trans 
yourself, but let me just say, that after having the trans out of my delorean, 
it's not a project that I would ever want to repeat, at least not without a 
lift.  If the car is already testing your paitance, trying to put that 
transmission back in will surely make matters worse.  Again, if you have access to a 
lift, it's a differnt story, but putting a transmission while lying on your back 
on a cold cement floor, in any car is no picnic.  I prefer to do everything 
on my DeLorean myself, but when it comes to the transmission, next time I face 
that issue(hopefully there won't be a next time) I will gladly pay to make 
that job somebody elses problem.

Owning and maintaining a DeLorean can be quite a time, and garage consuming 
experience (it's amazing how a small car can manage to take up both sides of a 
2 car garage when you start to take parts off, and have tools all over the 
place).  But from my standpoint, its still a blast overall.


PS:  The other thing that should worry you is when the person selling it says 
"It's got a little problem with the fuel pump, but don't worry, it's nothing 
major."  Chances are you should worry and it is something metaphysically
