[DML] Re: startup video

In Jan of 1982 I had about 500 miles on my new DeLorean and, on a cold 
morning, it would do the "hunt" for about 2 minutes. Yesterday, I 
started my DeLorean (not the same car), which I consider freshly well 
tuned and in very good shape, and it did the "hunt" for about two 
minutes. It was approximately 35 degrees.

I have a service letter from DeLorean Motor Company somewhere (the 
original DMC) that discussed the "hunt" as a normal phenomenon and 
described it as "characteristic". I guess there were enough people 
thinking something was wrong to warrant the response. Point is - it is 

I found that if you throttle up the RPM some and come back slowly you 
can often stop it.

BTW - I noticed that your tach jumped some which in turn seemed to 
affect your engine RPM. That appears to me to be a stray pulse that is 
probably not normal. Is your coil wire in good shape? All of the coil 
connections clean and firm?
