Re: [DML] Re: Ground Bus Redux

Again-  Assuming the capacitors are for radio noise...  Maybe AMC had radios that were less sensitive to the noise?  DMC had a very early style "digital" tuner.  Many more components than the analog tuners, so much more sensitive to electrical  noise.

Just one possible reason.. One of probably many more.   Still, I don't see how any increase in the size of electrical grounds replace the function of a capacitor.

I welcome your explanation how 1981 AMC's could be optioned with all the accessories of a 1981 DeLorean -- and more (cruise control, power seats, auto leveling rear suspension, and automatic hatch release among them) -- yet AMC got away with only *ONE* noise reduction capacitor in the entire car while DeLorean required at least twelve.

I attribute the difference to the obvious: AMC used its metal body as a humongous ground path; DeLorean used a mere seven wires to compensate for its nonconductive body.
