  Aricon Recharge
Posted by: Hardrinseron - Yesterday, 21:44 - Forum: 7 - Heating / Air Conditioning - Replies (1)

Hey Folks,

So i need to recharge my aircon before the summer and have been told the only options are R134 and RS24. I'm told RS24 is a straight swap for the original R12 whereas R134 is slightly different. From a quick look around it seems a lot of people are using R134 so i just wondered if anyone out there has used RS24 and if so what's your experience? If RS24 is a straight swap, why isnt everyone using it?

thanks!

Hi,

After many years of wanting one I finally bought my first a Delorean (quickly followed by my second, long story!). Anyway, got it from DMC Midwest back in the summer on 2021. Chris N did a bunch of work on her and she arrived early December. Just waiting for better weather to take her out. 

Looking forward to meeting folks in the future!
Darren


Here are some photos if anyone is interested

Also, if any other new members want any help or advice as to how I did it, let me know

  Intermittent no crank
Posted by: Justwatching - 12 Jan 2022, 00:18 - Forum: 3 - Electrical - Replies (2)

I've got an intermittent no start-no crank situation. I say intermittent, but it's becoming regular. 

I turn the key, dash lights come on, "click" but no crank. Sometimes the fuel pump doesn't prime either. It starts after a few attempts, cycling on and off. Sometimes it will suddenly start if I just hold the key in the crank position and wait for several seconds. Not sure if it's a red herring, but the tachometer sometimes gives false readings for a while after start up. Only seems to happen following the no-crank situation. 


The battery is in a good state of charge and I gave the terminals a once over with wire wool, but no improvement. At this point my thinking is a switch/relay of some description, bad ground, or the starter itself (in that order). I'm still not very familiar with DeLoreans though, so inputs gratefully received.

  Who can service?
Posted by: crossland86 - 09 Jan 2022, 15:06 - Forum: 1 - Engine - Replies (1)

Hello, I am looking to send my car somewhere for an "annual service" (fluids, filters, general check over, not idling perfectly, not charging perfectly, last serviced 2 years ago and done about 2,000 miles since). I have a basic technical understanding but not confident doing myself. I know garages that would 'have a go' but I'd rather send it to a specialist who will do it right, especially a k-jetronic seems to trip people up. I have used Chris Nicholson in the past... he's good, would use him again, but he's super-busy at the moment so looking for alternatives. Car is located near Reading, UK, but happy to have it trailered 2-3 hours away. 

Any other recommendations?

Thank you in advance  Smile

  DeLorean for sale on Autotrader.
Posted by: Derfel - 09 Jan 2022, 09:32 - Forum: DeLorean Cars or Parts For Sale or Wanted - Replies (3)

A listing for one for sale has appeared on Autotrader.

Not many photos - and those that are there are very odd, you are really interested in a picture of the glove box and parcel shelf! . So might be a bit "Suspicious"

Also the description is a bit odd!

  New Tyres
Posted by: Mich1958 - 06 Jan 2022, 13:38 - Forum: 6 - Brakes / Wheels / Tyres - Replies (6)

Hi Guys

As I'm still very much a newbee as my car has not even arrived yet I'm asking questions and I guess this is a difficult topic.

Finding a missmatched size set of 4 tyres same make and tread pattern and something which has a half decent fuel (although not to important) rating and wet weather grip (much more important).

No doubt easy in the US but i'm finding it more difficult in the UK.

So question is do any of you guy's alter the profile or tyre size to get a matched pair or does anyone alter there profile and tyres size to get a better ride / handling? 

Any input would be apreciated as I start to get to grips with my DeLorean knowledge base 

Cheers

Hi All,

I'm Rob and based in the U.K.  

I've always dreamed of owning a Delorean and joining the wider U.K. community and am
finally in a position to make that happen so am currently looking for one to buy.

Thanks,

Hi everyone, happy new year to you all

just had new window motors delivered and i need some advice on removing the old ones. so the windows are fully up and i cant easily access the bolts that hold the window rail to the motor is there any way to move either the window down manually or the whole setup down so that i can remove the 2 bolts?

my old motors are completely dead even after i realised the whole passenger door harness was disconnected  Rolleyes
