Re: [DML] Sleeping beauty

You could just flip the inertia switch into the disable position, then the  
fuel pump wouldn't run.  You may want to use some fogging oil or at the  very 
least turn the engine by hand if it hasn't been run in a decade.  You  could do 
more damage turning the key than 10 years of sitting already did to the  car! 
 Besides, what would turning over the engine tell you if you don't  have the 
fuel system going to?  Not a lot except that the starting system  works.

I am  thinking of reviving a Delorean that has sat for 10 years in a 
carport  without being started. I have no experience in auto 
restoration, but I  have been lurking at this and other sites 
collecting information about  this daunting task. I am going to inspect 
this car soon, and I am planning  to hook up a battery to see if the 
engine turns over. What is the best way  to disconnect the fuel system 
so that junk isn't sucked out of the tank  during this test?
