Re: [DML] Re: Carbureted DeLorean Fuel Filters



Why on earth would I even want to call Houston for a part I can get
locally for just a few dollars?  It doesn't take much effort to walk
into AutoZone with a part and say "Give me one of these".  I did it
with a fuel pump once and had no problem whatsoever.  I showed them
the part, I pointed at the part number, and in less than two minutes I
was walking out the store with my part.  I keep records as well and
I'm sure other do it yourselfers do the same thing.  But really, what
are you trying to argue?  One of the things I like about my fuel
system is I don't have to depend on any certain vendor for those
parts.  I can walk into just about any store and say I need a carb
rebuild kit for an old Ford Truck and within minutes I am walking out
the store with what I need.

> Bill, you keep twisting the answers to my posts. I am not scaring anyone away from modifying their car. When I point out that you need to keep records on what you are doing and the part #'s you say you can pull parts off the shelf. That is not the point! At some point you still need to know what part you have so you can replace it. You must do this because you are "on your own" now that you have modified the car. You can no longer call up James in Texas and ask for a fuel filter or air filter. He will send you the one for the K-Jet and it won't fit. This goes for ANY mod that ANYONE does, not just carbs. If you are going to change the car KEEP RECORDS! BTW converting to a carb just so you can walk into an Autozone is not a good reason to convert. Again I mention on a well running K-Jet system it is VERY reliable and replacing parts is not a big issue. About all of the maintenance required is to change the air filter and the fuel filter unless the system develops a problem. Usually because of stale fuel due to long-term storage. Even having a carb cannot prevent that.
