  Possible ground short???
Posted by: c.douch - 25 Apr 2017, 21:17 - Forum: 3 - Electrical - Replies (2)

Hi all,

I've got a few minor issues and was wondering if they could be related:

1. The blower doesn't work at any speed. I've checked the connections with a mulitmeter, and whist the live connector seems fine, the ground doesn't appear to be connected to ground.

2. The fuel pump fuse (fuse 1) tends to blow whenever i try a hot start.

3. I fitted a new stereo (totally non-invasive and hidden behind the passenger seat as i don't want to take away any originality), however the sound keeps cutting out after a few minutes. I had assumed it was the stereo, but am now wondering if the speaker impedance is being effected somehow via the ground connection.

I thought about the following fixes:

1. just connect the ground of the blower motor to another ground connection (there seems to be another one on the blower casing, although i'm not sure what its for).

2. Get the engine hot the unplug the fuel pump, then see if it'll hot start (hopefully it should just catch on whats in already in the system before cutting out). Which will tell me if it's a faulty pump.

3. Test the stereo in another car, if it works okay, ebay it and buy a battery powered hifi.

However, I'm now beginning to wonder if they are all part of a larger, or related issue. A short somewhere in the system.

I'd love to have you're thoughts on the matter, before I start tearing out any wires.

Many thanks

Hi everyone. I was contacted by this lady but it's a bit far for me to travel. Maybe someone on here can help.

I'm looking for someone to pop along to my house in wrexham , north wales for about half an hour with their delorean to get some pics with a time machine on my wedding day!!!  it doesn't need to be a modified delorean, a standard is fine, because they are still soooo cool!  it would probably only be for about 30 mins at about 3pm on saturday 24th june 2017.  please text me on 07867808320 if you would be able to help me out! many thanks, Sarah.

  ASI Radio PCB and potentiometer
Posted by: GDTDMC12 - 17 Apr 2017, 16:03 - Forum: 3 - Electrical - No Replies

Following damage sustained to my ASI Radio during shipping (for general refurbishment), despite great care taken with the packing, I am looking for the following part(s). If anyone can supply or know where to obtain these parts I would be very grateful for the information. I've looked at a similar BMW 1982 ASI radio but I'm told the similar part is not compatible so it seems I do need the DeLorean ASI radio part.

This is what happened, see the bent stems to which the knobs attach:
[Image: 34038394935_71445076c2.jpg]

The right hand one has been repaired:

But the left hand one is beyond repair:

I am therefore looking for the left hand PCB and potentiometer as shown in the following three images:

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

  Can the liners be rebored/honed?
Posted by: Dan Willis - 13 Apr 2017, 12:01 - Forum: 1 - Engine - Replies (1)

As above; I'm struggling to find a definitive yes or no. Mine need doing, or chucking. If they're chucked, the replacement costs is more than an engine (of similar vintage.. not a PRV persay).

  15% off Millers Nanodrive NT+ Top 3!
Posted by: oilman - 12 Apr 2017, 12:01 - Forum: Parts Suppliers - No Replies

Hi guys

So, we've had a lot of interest and a huge amount of positive feedback on Millers Oils new and improved Nanodrive NT+ range of motorsport oils since their launch. We've also noticed a fair few of you crying out for us to run an offer on them, and like the benevolent people that we are at Opies, we listened. We are pleased to announce that we will be offering 15% off the top 3 Millers Nanodrive CFS NT+ Oils!

[Image: nano15.jpg]

This offer covers the 3 most popular viscosities in the range, just click on the one you're after to see all sizes and prices:

- Millers Oils NANODRIVE CFS 5w-40 NT+

- Millers Oils NANODRIVE CFS 10W-50 NT+

- Millers Oils NANODRIVE CFS 10w-60 NT+

All you need to do is enter the code: NANO15 at checkout to get 15% off. To clarify, this offer is for Millers top of the range CFS NT+ oils, not their standard CFS motorsport oils. This will be running for a limited time only, so make sure you get those orders in quick!

This discount cannot be used on trade orders.

Millers Oils range of NANODRIVE NT+ oils are getting some stellar reviews, and it's no surprise thanks to their new and improved ultra low friction additive package. Proven to reduce engine friction by a further 15% over and above their previous multi-award winning products, this sets them apart from the competition, providing increased levels of power and torque that are immediately noticable. Simply put, the NT+ range has been developed from the ground up to offer the highest levels of protection and improved efficiency for high performance engines.

With free shipping to Mainland UK on orders over £60, it's a great time to get serviced and prepped in time for summer, with track days and events of all sorts looming. If you need any other servicing parts, from filters, spark plugs and wiper blades, to gearbox oils and brake fluids, we've got you covered.

One last time, that code is NANO15 and is running for a limited time only. If there's anything else you need, just give us a call on 01209 202 944 or drop us an email to sales@opieoils.co.uk. We're out of the office Friday 14th April until Tuesday 18th due to the Easter bank holiday, but will be up and running as usual from 8:30 - 5:30, Monday to Friday from then on. Have a look below for how the Easter bank holiday will affect couriers and delivery timescales:

  Carfest 2017

Hi Everyone,

I am in conversation with the event organisers to have a Delorean Stand at Carfest North & South in aid of BBC Children in Need again this year. [Image: icon_e_biggrin.gif]

Dates are

North 28th-30th July

South 25th-27th August

The momentum is starting with some great bands booked (many more yet to be announced) to play this year, and last year was the best to date; this year they plan on being better still [Image: dance.gif]

Please let me know if you would like to attend, so if you've seen the previous years threads and thought maybe you'd fancy it, why not make it along this year [Image: icon_e_wink.gif]
Same format as in recent years.

This years website is up and running


It's going to be a great show again! [Image: icon_e_biggrin.gif]
