Re: [DML] Charles's car



I have always heard that Charles used a Fish carb, which is downdraft, not sidedraft.

This pic, sent to me in 2004, purportedly shows Charles' setup:

That is a Volvo A Series intake manifold -- same manifold I use:

He told me that he went to the salvage & acquired a carbureted intake manifold from a Volvo with the same 2.8 L engine. Interchangable with the "D's"  OEM, then he did the appropriate mods, added the carb., and "voila", a carbureted Delorean! Indeed, I remember his claim of 30-32 MPG (5-sp).    He gave me some technical info. some time back (can't exactly remember on what), in German that I have on file.  A neat couple!   He is missed!
