Re: [DML] Conversions



You should have offered to come down here and transfer your complete working KJet system to Drew's car.  

I transferred my complete fuel system minus the fuel line; Drew had to go to Autozone and get his own hose for $20.  

Frankly, I am probably the dumbest person in the world.  If Drew dies tomorrow I may never see him again or get my parts back.   I'm trusting him to live and do the right thing.  

Currently my car does't run due to fuel issues since I no longer have a fuel system.  There is now way im going to put Drew's questionable parts on my car   

If someone wants to remove Kjet from their working car and loan it to me for a week or so, I just might go back.  You can either drive down here or ship the parts to me.  I won't complain either way but I would prefer if you included free installation.  

Is anyone willing to help me out?  

Isn't it funny how no one is complaining about his time machine conversion yet the carburetor is somehow evil?  The carb conversion is completely reversible.  

I suppose the time machine conversion could be reversed but it would cost him a lot of money since he drilled holes in the stainless.

The head has been replaced twice and the handle 3 times. If you stuck a big block V-8 into a Stanley Steamer is it still a S/S? No one doubts the altruism and passion Bill has, IMHO it is just misdirected. For the effort he applies to removing the original fuel system he could have fixed it easier than wholesale replacement. On the plus side he has created a secondary market with a lot of used, otherwise expensive parts for the K-Jet! The only downside to all of this is buyer's remorse if they have problems with this conversion and try to go back. Will Bill be as giving of his time then? I know I would not be enthusiastic about trying to undo this! Bottom-linning this, the decision lies with the present owner of each Delorean, Bill is only making it easier to make the switch (if that is what is wanted). As Bill points out, It ain't free! And IMHO it is probably more expensive than fixing the K-Jet. All he can claim about the virtues of this conversion is that service is simpler. Not better mileage or more performance. The service is simpler for anyone who doesn't know K-Jet and knows carburetors, not for a Delorean center.
