Hi Wayne,

Just showing my support to you in that I will definitely buy a copy when it is complete!  Keep up the good work.

No PCV  valve on a K-Jet equipped PRV. Instead, Douvrin used much less
efficient  "calibrated nipples." Production DeLorean had one on the
cold start tube,  even though Page C:02:01 of the Workshop Manual shows
two in the sides of  the U pipes (typical Renault practice).>>
 
And a typical Workshop Manual error. I "love" all the pictures of the  
engine... there are several... showing vestiges of radiator fan blades at the  water 
pump, even though any owner who ever looked under their engine  cover knows 
the radiator and the electric fans are at the other end of the  car. 
 
So what about a revised manual, as was being discussed before DCS? I  haven't 
said much about if for the last few weeks, but it's going forward. I've  had 
my nicest original scanned in professionally, expect to get the  disc in the 
mail by Friday. A copy is being OCR'd as a separate process. The  source 
materials are all annotated, and ready to edit into the new version. It  will 
include material from the Workshop Manual, the pertinent Bulletins, the  pertinent 
Parts Manual illustrations, some material from the Owner's Manual,  some new 
illustrations or photos, expanded section on servicing doors, a very  helpful 
index, all reformatted. Most of the basic text sans illustrations will  be 
available free on the DMCTech site for your use or abuse (and hopefully not  
misuse.) Comments or corrections welcome. In cases of conflicting material, I'll  
research and go with the most plausible, or include the pro and con. After  
final revisions, I'll print a certain number of  paper copies and you'll be  able 
to look at one accurate manual instead of three semi-accurate ones plus  your 
computer when you work on your car. Why not entirely free? Well, I'm  pouring 
a lot of hard earned cash into it, and it would be nice to at least get  some 
back. It's not a money-making deal, though... or any or all of the dealers  
would have already done a revision. And no, I'm not taking reservations. I'll  
wait until it's ready for the printer, then ascertain who's interested. When  
will that be? This Fall, I figure. I've been accumulating stuff for  years 
toward doing this- about time I got it off my back and did it. Sell  it thru vend
ors? Well, if they're interested, but any discussion I've had with  them, they 
indicated they didn't see any need. No need to ask if I have  permission... I 
got it from JZD in writing before he died. Time for the only JZD  authorized 
manual revision to get to the finish line.
