  Floating / Levitating BTTf DeLorean
Posted by: JohnC - 30 Mar 2020, 15:39 - Forum: Back To The Future - Replies (9)

Hi all,

Does anyone want to own up to having one of the floating/levitating BTTF DeLoreans please ?

Amazon Link to floating DeLorean

It's 1/20th scale, but the pictures suggest it's quite nicely detailed, but I'd prefer to hear thoughts from someone who has purchased, and can advise on whether a UK power adapter is an option.

So far, I'm not getting responses from the listed vendors, but that's fair enough it can hardly be considered an essential purchase...

  hesitation/popping of the engine at higher RPMs
Posted by: Azar - 30 Mar 2020, 01:52 - Forum: 2 - Emission / Fuel Systems - Replies (1)

Hello from Germany, earlier this year I brought the 05257 in US and the car is currently at DMCH, later will be shipped to Europe.

They have installed a new fuel pump with all the parts. Also did a major maintenance.
I have got two videos:


First is showing the initial startup of the car - it's starting right away and has great fuel pressure coming from the new fuel pump.

The other video shows revving the engine a bit harder, and there is a hesitation/popping of the engine a little bit at higher RPMs (seen at approx. 9, 12, and 14 seconds). The car was sitting for a while and old fuel pump was clogged up with bad petrol. The problem might go away after the next couple of tanks but also might stay. They suggest to rebuild the Fuel Distributor und Warm-up / Control Pressure Regulator.

Do you think this is normal and will go away after some driving or should I get the refurbished parts?

Many thanks for your opinions!

  Auto Gearbox wanted
Posted by: mcmolloy1 - 20 Mar 2020, 20:17 - Forum: 4 - Transmission - Manual & Automatic - Replies (11)

Hello all,
I have to confess that I'm not a DeLorean owner. I'm looking for a 4141 gearbox for a Renault 25.
Failing that, if someone could recommend a good gearbox repair shop in UK or Ireland( I'm in Northern Ireland).

I've been told that the gearbox ran out of oil which caused the damage.

Any help or pointers appreciated,

  Mixture control Unit Wanted
Posted by: Stuart Rees - 09 Mar 2020, 11:30 - Forum: DeLorean Cars or Parts For Sale or Wanted - Replies (3)

I'm getting into the inlet and fuelling system at the weekend since the car is running rich.

I'll be replacing the fuel lines with new braided hoses, new injectors etc
A previous owner messed with / damaged the mixture screw and I'm not sure if the screw is doing what it should.

Does anyone have a mixture control unit / air flow meter for sale? DMC part number 102789

There must be a few kicking about after engine swaps and EFI conversions. PM me with a price.
[Image: 102789.jpg]

I would like to sort it in one go and I've lost faith in the old part...

  Driveshaft to differential oil seals
Posted by: Rich Hanlon - 28 Feb 2020, 01:12 - Forum: 4 - Transmission - Manual & Automatic - Replies (8)

Hi , has anybody done these seals in here? This seems like the opportune time to do them and there is some oil wetting there so I think they're weeping ( as am I ).

It looks like there is a roll pin to tap out then a castellated but to undo but I assume that will also lose end load on the diff.

Also does anyone have a part cross-reference for the seals?

  Cork International Car Show 5th April 2020
Posted by: Chris Williams - 27 Feb 2020, 17:15 - Forum: Ireland - No Replies

My name is Martina Martin and I am emailing you with regard to the Cork International Car Show which will take place at the Cork International Hotel on Sunday 5th of April 2020.
This will be the fourth year of the Cork International Car Show, and we are delighted to announce that all of the proceeds raised at this year’s event will be donated to The Rainbow Club Centre for Autism, a non-government funded service that aims to support individuals, and their families, that are living with autism.
Last year’s event raised over €8000 for The Rainbow Club, with the two previous years raising over €16,000 for Bumbleance. This would not have been possible without the generosity and support of the amazing participating car and bike clubs.
The past three years have generated a great turn out of cars and bikes of all kinds, as well as hundreds of attendees. We are incredibly grateful, in particular, to the Car Clubs that fully jumped on board to support the event and bring groups along.
This year’s Cork International Car Show will take place on Sunday 5th of April 2020, from 11:00am to 4:30pm at The Cork International Hotel, which is sure to be a day of fun for the whole family. Our neighbours at Cork Airport have kindly given us the use of the long-term carpark, which visitors on the day can access via our hotel.
Entry will be €5 for adults and free entry for children. We will offer various activities over the day including kids’ entertainment, if the weather allows.
For any exhibitors who wish to arrive on the Saturday evening prior to the event, we will be offering a competitive special rate on bedrooms and will have a secure car park for you to park your car overnight.
I am emailing to see if you or any of your members would be interested in taking part in this year’s show. If you or any of your members are interested in taking part, please do let me know and I will then send you through a booking form so that we can get each bike details for the show in advance.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards,

  Resto of 5222
Posted by: steve.s - 16 Feb 2020, 03:29 - Forum: Members Cars - Replies (2)

Hi All

my resto of 52222 continues and i will post some pics.

if you guys decide to paint strip a Delorean, be prepared for a very long job.

my car generally has 3 layers of paint, i am using Frosts aircraft grade stripper gel.

liberally 'paint' it on, cover with clingfilm, leave for ten minutes, and i little bit of one layer comes off!. using phone cards as scrapers!.

and the bottom coat, that stuff i think was used to protect the shuttle on re-entry. it is sooo hard to shift.

now i know the door and rear panel had a little damage. Chris N seems to think it unlikely he can repair the door.

rear panel not sure yet. however a major setback this weekend....looks like the drivers front wing had damage. i am not quite sure of the extent. i am stripping it and underneath the 'undercoat' i am finding a grey i think spray filler. covers about 1/4 of wing near front. the paint stripper seems to soften it a little and it shaves off a tiny bit at a time.

i hope Chris can do something with it as i know this  panel is NLA.

on a positive, frame looks good as do most suspension. even brakes and handbrake work. Alloy wheels now refurbished and new tyres, but i am going to wait until all paint stripping done before i fit them. Current wheels are spoked and have central spinners... i hope hubs have not been modified.

Engine stripped down to the VOD. about to paint it, and have had intake soda blasted. Not sure PO was doing but everything electric has been disconnected. Even the heaterbox actuators are hanging loose!.

no water in car either... i have yet to investigate but i suspect the heater matrix is shot.

anyway will sort some pics.

  BTTF Pinball Machine - For Sale
Posted by: OllieWilks - 13 Feb 2020, 15:37 - Forum: Back To The Future - No Replies

Hi all,

Long time since I’ve posted on here but I wanted to let people know that I’m selling my BTTF Pinball Machine by Data East. I know a few people expressed an interest so thought I’d put a post on here before I stick it on Facebook market place later today in case any one is interested.

Back story: I bought the machine about 5 or so years ago and has always been my pride and joy in my home office inside my home but about 6 months ago the digital display on the upper cabinet has stopped displaying scores. The game itself still plays, all balls and lights etc as do all the bttf quotes and musics but you just don’t know the score you’re getting. Now that I don’t have either of my DeLoreans sadly and now with a baby on the way I think it’s just better to sell it to someone who can get it working properly and enjoy it. I know very few of these ever come up for sale but this one does need some work. I have no idea about pinball machines so assume it needs a new screen. I’m asking £1495 which might sound like a lot but liberty games have one for sale at £6895 currently. Here is the link - https://www.libertygames.co.uk/store/pin...e-pinball/ 

Photos of mine below. Any questions or anyone interested PM me and we can chat over the phone or WhatsApp. I don’t expect it to hang around.

All the best

Hi all, I have just imported #003170, manual, grey interior.
1 owner, 12625 miles, been in storage 13 years.
Original bill of sale, JZD signed congratulations on purchase letter, owners & workshop manuals, recall letters, Delorean World mags, service records and invoices.
Really pleased with overall condition inside & out.
Booked into PJs in April for full appraisal. Will have completed DVLA/MOT requirements by then.
Big thanks to Chris for the time he has spent on the phone giving me advice & suggestions. Chris is hoping to find time in his schedule to visit me to view her before she goes off to PJs, but it’s a hell of a journey for him.
I live in Bournemouth but she is currently in Sittingbourne Kent (nearer to PJs).
Hoping to do some shows/meets once she has had the once over.

Very much looking forward to meeting you all and becoming active member of the family.

ATB Steve
