[DML] Re: Delorean vs Volvo Fuel Distributor



I've been running a bosch 005 distributor that i pulled off of an 83
volvo 760. I asked John Hervey about it 2 years ago when I installed
it and he told me I shouldn't have a problem only difference was that
the volvo dizzy had pressure adjusters for each of the injector lines
while the Delorean one did not. Well, I've put over 10k on my car, had
emissions inspections twice and haven't had a bit of trouble. Sure was
nice replacing a bad dizzy with a $23 junkyard part.
