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

Er, Message #74211: "I have built a DeLorean engine based on a crate
Volvo B28F and they were functionally IDENTICAL."

Yes, I do read your posts.

F Series B28 and DeLorean's PRV are *NOT* functionally identical.
Volvo has a much better ignition distributor (if you consider a
steeper advance curve "better" -- I do, because it makes the engine
freer rev'ing).

Remember: We're talking F Series here, not Eurospec. Volvo F Series is
timed 10 degrees BTDC just like its European counterparts.

Volvo F Series vacuum lines are plumbed better than DeLorean as well
(if you consider simple and reliable "better"). CPR is plumbed the
same way, but the distributor lacks DeLorean's Rube Goldberg solenoid
and microswitch (yes, I know the microswitch controls CIS as well --
another system I have qualms with).

Regarding "B29" -- that is Volvo nomenclature. Renault started its PRV
engine identifications with "Z". For example, Renault's version of
what Volvo called "B27" was "Z7V." There's an explanatory document in
the Files section of the DML Yahoo website:
