[DML] Re: DMC clock reproduction (and other options)

What happens when there is a sudden loss of coolant when it is over
the boiling point (at atmospheric pressure) and under pressure as in a
car's cooling system, much of it flashes into steam. Since the
Delorean's cooling system is pressurized (up to 15 PSI) and the
coolant gets to over 212 degrees F, when the coolant comes out from a
large leak you get a cloud of steam. Everyone on the 1st  Fall Tour in
Rhode Island got to see that first-hand. A line of Deloreans got stuck
in traffic in downtown Providance and one of them blew the left tank
off the radiator. No one could miss THAT cloud of steam! By the time
you might look at a gauge or warning light it would all be over! I am
sure the same kind of thing would happen if you blew out the
otterstadt. If you are that concerned about it just put a strap-tie on
it right now. Preventitive maintaince is always better than getting
stuck. If you had a warning light go on it is already too late. You
are getting stuck. BTW the "best" insurance is to do your preventive
maintaince. Replace the hoses if they are over 10 years old. If you
still have the origional radiator you should consider replacing it,
ditto for the water pump. Go take a flash light, jack up the car, and
look inside the fan shroud and along the edges of the tanks on both
sides. If you see green stains, and you will, no light or gauge is
going to help you! That header bottle is another thing that is going
to explode. Get the metal tank. If you don't take car of the car it
WILL let you down,
