Re: [DML] Inadequate DeLorean Grounding Identified (Big Red Circle)



I think the problem here is nobody can argue with Bill's assertion that "other cars don't have caps as part of the loom" because we don't have much collective experience with contemporary cars.  But given his assertion on the far more obvious "all cars since the model T have had spare wheels", or "more 2100 carburetors were built than K-jet systems" I think we're on pretty solid ground that he's wrong.

Either way however, those of us who understand what a cap does and what it's for know the number present as part of the loom can't be considered a measure of the quality of "these stupid little cars" - that'd be "laughably preposterous".

By your own admission, the DMC is far more technically advanced than your beloved AMC.

Do those cars have electronic AFR control (lambda)? 

Do those cars have electronic idle control?

Do those cars have electronic ignition?

Did your AMC Sell for $25K in 1981?  the customer paying $25K for a car in 1981 had higher expectations than the average AMC customer..  For one thing, I doubt they would tolerate any noises through the radio (again, assuming that is the function of these capacitors-  Still, no one has confirmed this!)..

Remember, the DMC was meant to complete with Cadillac, and Mercedes..  Not AMC.  So, I ask this (honest question, I don't know the answer);  How does this "capacitor study" compare to a comparable vehicle?  That is, one with similar technology features. 

Have you considered the possibility that the capacitors were engineered in to the design by someone who was "just being safe" with such an expensive car?  In reality, they may not be needed at all..  either way, you can come up with all of the observations you want but a "ground bus" will never replace the function of a capacitor.

I clearly wrote "cars contemporary to the DeLorean." You even quoted my words in your reply. I guess you quoted them without reading them. "Contemporary to the DeLorean" means 1981 model year, not any 21st century model year.
