[DML] Re: Contemplating a Carb Swap

Sorry to interject here, but that is exactly what a carb conversion did for my car. Made it magically reliable. That's why I switched to a carb before even wasting money on a high pressure fuel pump when I revived my Boo. I asked many people both running carbs and kjets and the overwhelming reason was the increase in reliability. 
As for Bill, I feel he is imaginative, intuitive, intelligent and of course, an instigator. But it is true that others can offer info and opinions but Bill gets shot down before he even finishes his statements (exaggeration). I truly think everyone thats involved in the schpiel really enjoys the bickering, or else they wouldn't take part in it. Although entertaining, I do see Bill never gets any credit and I feel he deserves a lot. 
Ok I don't want to start the "the bill circus is carbing into town" but I think the true circus are the people jumping down his throat over every comment....and yes, Bill has the right to comment and relay his feeling as much as anyone else does.
I don't know anyone who would go to such lengths to help or even advise a fellow car owner whom he doesn't know From anyone. Bill has always given me precise information, pictures and links to help me with any Delorean concern I have ever had. Him, Tom Nieland, and Dave Delman have all done more for me than I could possibly dream, and having them as freinds is what living the dream is . 
Just my 35 cents..

Realize even a carb is not immune to the effects of heat. If you do not figure out what the problem is now with the K-jet system, you may not "fix" it by going carb. If the problem is in the fuel tank, you still have to have a pump and a pick-up system to get the fuel to the carb. If that is where the problem is a carb is not going to help. I agree it is very inconvenient to get stuck anywhere. There are a lot of other things that can stop you besides the fuel system! If you do not have enough confidence in your car to take it on a long trip putting a carb on it isn't going to magically make reliable.
