Re: [DML] 3 Brass Screws Infront Of Engine



I could be very wrong too.  Looking up the answers in the archives  
and on vendors sites I found these:

John says to tighten down all 3 screws.

And as Bruce Benson said in 1996 on the DML:  "Be sure the three  
adjustment screws in the throttle valve ass'y are closed as
they aren't used in the DeLorean."

Full page is here: http://www.dmcnews.com/backissues/jan96files/ 
dml060.html

And the shop manual says:  "The throttle body on the PRV V-6 engine  
contains an air adjusting
screw and two air balancing screws.  These adjustment screws
are not used on the De Lorean since an electronic idle speed control
system is used.  The air adjusting screw should be fully seated to
eliminate any air bypass at the throttle plates."

My guess would be to tighten them all down.  I'm sure someone who is  
more experienced in the field can elaborate on why.

In any case, tightening them down had no effect or change on my car.
