Re: [DML] Re: New Test Procedure for K-Jet


Thanks for sharing this, it is an ingenious way to solve a problem that almost 
every Delorean I've ever looked at seems to suffer from.

Where did you get the smoker you purchased? And what brand, etc?

The long version (longer anyway),
You remove the air cleaner box. Connect the hose of the smoke generator to the 
hose from the oil fill cap. Turn on the smoke and hold the throttle open and the 
air sensor plate down till you see smoke. Now cap the air inlet to the mixture 
unit and pump the motor up with smoke. It will start coming out of the leaks. 
Big ones show up faster than small ones. If they are really big you have to stop 
pushing in smoke so you can still look for the smaller leaks. The smoker I have 
has a hand-held push button so you can turn it on and off easily while looking 
for leaks. Once you identify any leaks you fix them and retest to find smaller 
leaks. Removing and replacing the air cleaner takes more time than actually 
doing the smoke test. Without the benefit of a smoke generator I can tell you 
that you should probably just replace the injector seals to start with. EVERY 
car I tested had at least one leaky injector seal. A through visual check is 
also a good idea to catch any hoses not connected, missing caps, plugs, etc.
