RE: [DML] Re: Delorean Owner



I do complete fuel systems overhaul except labor on my bench for a little
less than $1100.00 That's my labor and parts. 
New rebuilt distributor and WUR ( with a 2 year warranty), new accumulator
and filter, clean and make sure CSV, FV, are working and change the filter
in them and make sure the idle motor is working. Clean and align air flow
meter and send it all back ready to install. New SS fuel lines are extra and
I help them start and adjust fuel mixture after it's all done.  
Somebody to spend $4000.00 must have not cared enough about the cost and
just took it in and said fix it and didn't think there were any other
sources on CIS as a lot of newbie's do.

Someone as resourceful as you can come up with a solution (it is a long time
since DCS '04!). Anyway this is not the case on other cars where the K-Jet
is already installed, just not working properly. As for the $4K bill, this
is third hand innuendo. I would not doubt that the owner spent $4K at DMCH,
I would just question that it was all spent on fixing the fuel system. It is
VERY rare that an owner takes a car in and limits a shop to JUST one thing.
Typically on a non-runner, there are LOTS of things to fix!

post to reply to this one. It's OK for you and Steve to talk about
carburetors without actually using the word but when I bring it up you get
all uppity about it. If an owner spent $4K on trying to repair his car (and
it was all spent just on the fuel system) that just points out that whoever
was working on his car did not know what they were doing. It is not a reason
to discard the original fuel system, it IS a reason to get someone else to
work on the car. For that much money he could have had the car shipped to
someone who could have done it right for a lot less. We are not going to
agree on this but for what it costs to convert to a carburetor an owner
should be able to fix his K-Jet and probably have some money left over. Mark
is also correct, there is a lot of knowledge and support from local clubs
and individuals who are more than happy to assist other owners. Not all of
them want to convert the car from a K-Jet to a carburetor. In a away I am
surprised at you, Bill. You are obviously smart enough and familiar enough
with the Bosch K-Jet system, yet you think putting a carburetor on is the
way to fix any problem with the fuel system on a Delorean.
