[DML] 2nd album of my DeLorean collection has just been sent out



hello to all of you delorean enthusiasts, i just wanted to make all of you aware that my second album has just been sent out to many delorean owners and collectors from around the world.  if there's any more collectors out there that would like to receive this album or the previous album let me know your e-mail address and i'll gladly send both of them to you.  about 1/3 of the items from the 1st album has already been sold and i'll be updating that album shortly so you can all see what's still available.  i still have several e-mails to reply to as well.  if you're one of those people...thanks for your patience.  this process, as you can imagine, takes quite a bit of detailed time taking pictures/uploading them/categorizing everything for myself and all of you.  i sent just a few broad snap shots of my back to the future collection as well just to give those collectors an idea of what i have as well.  i'll be taking many more pictures of those items up close to give you all much m
ore detail.  i just wanted to throw some pictures on there to get a feel for any interest out there from any of you.  in addition, i have a very extensive magazine/book collection as well for any of you who are interested in those as well.  i have just about every magazine that has ever featured the delorean in some way...on the cover or inside the magazine.  i collect the entire magazine as well...not just a wripped out delorean article from inside any magazine.  these magazines are from all over the world and all are protected twice in a thin plastic see through top load and then inserted again into a much thicker see through top load.  as you can see, i'm very picky about the condition of any item in my collection and how it's taken care of.  let me know if there's any interested collectors out there that didn't get my e-mails for either album and would like to have me send them.  Thanks again for all of your interest and patience with me during this time consuming process.

Antifreeze can get into the DeLorean engine oil from a couple of 
places, all internal, and it is usually not a good sign. Now that 
antifreeze has been into the oil you may already have some serious 
damage. Unfortunately, an internal leak implies some sort of engine 
damage or gasket failure has occurred. Failures rarely lend 
themselves to "stop-leak" types of repair.

Since the engine apparently does not miss, the leak is not in the 
combustion chamber (it would miss, especially at start up, if this 
were the case). It could be a cracked head which could be checked by 
removing the valve adjustment covers or it could be a leak at the 
piston sleeve or liner mount at the engine block inside the engine. 
There are, of course, other possibilities - these are some common 
ones.

If the leak is because of a piston sleeve gasket failure some stop-
leak may work. I would recommend Aluma Seal - I get it at NAPA - or 
any good name brand sealer that works in aluminum engines. I would 
probably do that in any event to see if the leak can be stopped.

I would also drain a bit of oil out periodically to see how much 
antifreeze is still getting into the oil. If you can't stop it you 
are destined, more likely than not, for some major engine repair.

Certainly not a good thing to find anti-freeze in the oil. Some
possible sources include:
Leaking liner seals
Head gasket
Corroded block in the top and leaking seals and hoses allowing the 
coolant to get into the crankcase.

You definately need to find the source of the leak. Anti-freeze is not
a good lubricant and will ruin your bearings, cam, cylinder walls, and
pistons. A presssure test on the coolant system should help you find
the leak. You may need to remove the intake manifold to examine all
possible sources. Has your engine ever been overheated?

hopefully just a blown head gasket, there are worse things... don't drive it
until you find out exactly what happened. There are more knowledgeable
people than me on this list but I have worked with cars a long time.

Hello List - Needless to say, we are so fired up about the 
opportunities that stretch before us. Please check out a couple of 
pictures that have been posted in the Photos section in the DMC 
Northwest folder. More pictures of the facility to come as we get 
further along in the renovation and remodeling process.

That's great news to hear! But, I do have one quick question:

What impact (if any) will this present on *non-DMC* parts and accessories?

Will Toby and Misty be allowed to sell things like the "Wings-a-loft"
door kits? Will their products in turn be licensed to DMCH, DMCF, and
DMCC for distribution at their centers too?

Not trying to start anything, just wondering an honest question.

3. Best LEDs for side markers? 
Posted by: "delorean_3" delorean3@xxxxxxxxxxx   delorean_3 
Sat Jan 27, 2007 11:37 am (PST) 
Group,

I have in the past replaced various bulbs in the car with LEDs, to 
mixed results. I tried replacing the front side marker bulbs but the 
sockets were all rusted and fused to the bulbs themselves making them 
utterly useless. Now that I have new ones waiting to be spliced in, I 
was wondering if anybody could recommend LEDs for the front and rear 
side markers respectively. I have seen a "white" (more like blueish-
white) LED that altered the color of the side marker slightly. I am 
looking for a bulb that once inside and covered by the plastic piece 
will still look original. If anybody has any suggestions, and where to 
buy, it would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Jack

Join fellow DeLorean owners on February 17th in Chattanooga, TN. We 
will be meeting at 11:00 in the Moe's parking lot at Hamilton Place 
Mall. This location is centrally located and provides a large 
parking lot (next to Target) and allows easy access to other 
restaurants and activities. 

>From 11:00 ? 12:30 we can meet and greet then head to lunch. After 
lunch, we can drive to one of Chattanooga's great photo locations. 
Once such place is Coolidge Park. It offers a great view of the 
River and Downtown Area. 

For anyone still hanging around after the photo session, we can head 
over to one of Chattanooga's great attractions. 

You don't have to own a DeLorean to join us! Just come out and 
enjoy the fellowship and fun!

If you plan on attending and would like phone contact information, 
please email freakybeetle@xxxxxxxxxxx and I will send you my phone 
number.

Meeting Location:
Moe's Southwest Grill - Hamilton Place
1820 Gunbarrel Rd
Chattanooga, TN 37421

Just a few of the Area Attractions:

Tennessee Aquarium and Imax - 
http://www.tnaqua.org/VisitorInfo/VisitorInfo.asp

Rock City - http://www.seerockcity.com/Flash/index.htm

Ruby Falls - http://www.rubyfalls.com

Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum - http://www.tvrail.com/

Just hang out in a parking lot and talk about the awesome care we 
all love!

Please post any ideas or suggestions!
