Re: [DML] Questionable DMC Engineering

That's absurd, Bill.  That's not a drain tube; it's a vent for the blower motor.  If you are getting water in that tube, your evaporator casing is already at least half full of water, and spilling over near the resister panel.  Looks like your "simpler" design for the drain tube isn't working at all.  I would also suspect that you have another problem with the recirc based on the amount of condensation you are having.
For everyone else, the correct way to fix this is to clean the evaporator out and make sure your drain is clear.  I do this every year as summer begins.  You can also add a screen under the cowl to keep the big stuff out, but I haven't bothered.  I'll let Bill spend days "re-engineering" something he doesn't understand.

Louie and I burned the A/C all the way to DMA last weekend -- 13 hours
straight (R134 works very well, thank you very much). Unfortunately
Louie occasionally had the all too common "cold water on the poor
passenger's foot" DeLorean experience. This puzzled me because I have
replaced the convoluted frame side drain with simpler and more direct
plumbing. Climbed under the dash this morning and discovered a second
evaporator drain tube -- straight into the blower motor housing! Whose
bright idea was it to fill the blower motor with water?
