RE: [DML] Re: Fuel filter

Fuel Filter ALERT!


Speaking of fuel filters we just received a dozen filters from DMCH and I
cringed when I discovered they are out of NOS and substituted the Bosch #401
style filters used on old Volvo 240?s. This filter has a cage nut meant to
be used with a fuel banjo, bolt, and copper washers ala Volvo. Unfortunately
99% of all DeLorean?s use a pipe or tapered thread style elbow to ?seal the
deal?. This arrangement won?t work on a DeLorean and will result in a
massive fuel leak directly ahead of the catalytic converter. Yes folk?s you
too can modify your DeLorean so it looks like a flaming fireball as you
travel down the boulevard?but please don?t park it in your garage unless
your homeowners is paid up! Seriously this is a big problem but at least
DMCH has the fittings to make it work as the factory was apparently trying
them on a few of the later cars and I?ve seen the fittings in my travels
around their warehouse. If you bought a filter and it came in a Bosch box
don?t use it. Call DMCH or whoever you got it from and arrange for a return
or you must change the fittings.

GOOD! That's why I made the original post. I was NOT bad mouthing 
John. He's one of the good guys. He has been very helpful to me on 
the phone a time or two without any thought of time or compensation.

seeing the picture I pulled the pump last night and the epoxy was 
also deteriorated to the point where the hose barb pulled free from 
the pickup screen with almost no effort at all. I can post pictures, 
but how many pictures of failed epoxy do we really need to see?
> Anyway, a few years back John offered free replacement screens for 
people who had the originals. I believe the reason given for offering 
the replacements at that time was because the originally supplied 
screen was thought to be too fine and was prone to clogging. In any 
case, he did offer free replacements. Luckily I had a replacement on 
the shelf and installed it last night. 
> Based on what people are seeing with these original pickup screens 
it is highly recommended to check them now before your pump ingests 
some deteriorated epoxy and jams up. You don't want to be stuck on 
the road halfway between your home and DCS with no way to get going 
again.Joe Kuchan
