Re: [DML] DeLorean vs Volvo F Series Question (Martin Gutkowski)

Hmmm, me thinks you told your British buddies something different: 

 >> Er... where did I contradict myself? READ my posts, don't assume you 
know what I'm saying, then do as much research as you like. I was 
telling you that you are wrong about the construction of the DeLorean 
dizzy, and who did the engineering. I've never suggested they are the 
same. To my knowledge, I was the first person to fit a Bosch 013 type 
dizzy from a B28E to a DeLorean engine to see what happenned. FYI the 
DeLorean dizzy pn ends 023 but is otherwise the same. The only 
difference is the shape and springs on the bob weights.

I had Volvo's advance numbers at one time but can't seem to locate
them when I need them most. Let's just assume that maximum spark
advance is identical between B28 and "B29" (I've never heard of such ,
but that's what your message dated 11/28/06 18:58 calls DeLorean's

 >> the Renault 2.8 odd-fires start with a B29 code, and have the same 
dizzy as the Volvo B28E. Eg Alpine GTA Atmo

If Volvo is starting at ten degrees BTDC, and DMC is starting
13 degrees BTDC, Volvo certainly has a steeper advance curve.

 >> YES. It does. Now you've actually specified detail rather than 
ambiguous ramblings...

FWIW: My distributor came with a Peugot sticker on the side. Differs
slightly from DeLorean's unit by using a traditional hold down clamp
rather than a screw through a slot. I assume it has two equal sized
counterweights, just like Volvo, because it makes the engine free
rev'ing as hell. Base ignition time is 10 degrees BTDC.

 >> If the body is different, then it'll have a different Bosch part 
number even if it has the same advance curve.
