[DML] Re: Digest Number 4740


This is really a GM Delco-Remy part that was used on the more 
powerful General Motors AC equipped cars,EVEN the Roll Royce of the 
same time era used the same style Delco-Remy AC parts....so you have 
to Blame it on General Motors and NOT DMC.The thing I could never 
figure out is of the MILLIONS of these Blower Motors made...WHY did 
DMC get/engineer the reverse running Blower Motors from Delco-Remy 
into the Delorean,and NOT the common ones used on millions of cars??
Side by side they are exact twins,except they spin in different 
directions.This follows the route on ALL the Delorean Mechanical 
parts installed onto the Delorean...they are twins to over the 
counter parts,but function different, from the mass produced "normal" 
These can be gotten off any GM car,but for some strange reason the 
ones used for the Delorean run in reverse from the twins that can be 
bought from any GM parts Department or any auto parts store.It seems 
strange that every part on the Delorean has a quirk,so that it cannot 
be matched up to the over the counter parts twins,basically 
everything is Delorean specific.
Was this Done by Lotus engineering or DMC to make the car owner BUY 
only from DMC (propriety)parts.I know Ferrari does this,there is no 
aftermarket repair/replacement parts for a Ferrari.You have to buy 
Ferrari only parts.IT IS Ferrari's Secret of where their parts are 
made and who supplies them to Ferrari.Was DMC following the same 
route,it sure seems that way.Even simple things like Brake pads or 
oil filters or light bulbs were made hard for a owner to get a hold 
of over the counter.Check any part on a Delorean and I will bet that 
you can match it up to a exact twin on another make and Model car,but 
will not perform correct on a Delorean.Each and every part on a 
Delorean was altered by the manufacturer to only comply/work with the 
Delorean engineering and nothing else.ALL parts used were made 
Delorean specific only,in a way it sealed the car to be doomed,since 
DMC could have charged whatever they wanted,since again the parts 
were Delorean specific.
In retrospec,I do remember going to a DMC parts Department (1982)when 
I was restoring my first Delorean...and I DID DISCOVER and was 
shocked at the prices for the DMC parts that I needed,which started 
my quest to just buy  totaled parts car(s) rather than pay DMC's 
overpriced and bloated prices.(all my parts cars were from one month 
old FROM NEW BUILD and the oldest was 3 years old from new build)

The Delorean vendors know this fact and they relise they have a 
capative market for all their items,but unlike me,back in the 1980's 
all I had to do was buy  totaled Delorean(s) and I was all setup 
with "as new" parts supply..Today that choice is no long a option.
