[DML] Re: DeLorean Service



I agree with Bryan. My son-in-law owns an auto repair shop and he 
helped me install a clutch using his shop equipment one weekend. 
Because we worked together and I had knowledge of the DeLorean 
mechanicals he didn't have the mindset Bryan refers to. When we were 
done he told me "I installed a clutch in an Audi the other day and 
this was a piece of cake in comparison." The DeLorean is really pretty 
basic with a few odd characteristics. Bosch K-jetronic is the same 
principle whether it's used in a Volkswagon, Porsche, Volvo or 
whatever. If you know that system then you should be able to trouble 
shoot it no matter the car it's used in. It's the fact the DeLorean 
looks exotic that creates that mindset. That's not to say I would 
expect just any mechanic to work on the gullwing doors or the weird 
electrical system. The car does have some of it's own problem areas 
that take prior experiance to fix but all the coments I've seen here 
regarding the fuel system should not be a problem for a competent 
mechanic experianced working on K-Jetronic.
