  That infernal fuel filter elbow
Posted by: stunned_monkey - 21 Oct 2019, 18:46 - Forum: General Discussions on the DOC / Car / Company / JZD - Replies (1)

I've sourced and replaced this part only once and never identified what it actually is. On that occasion it was frozen solid to the hard line and had to be cut off. I sent off what I had and back came a new one.

Number 28

https://store.delorean.com/c-274-2-1-0-t...oretc.aspx

The hard line fittings on the car are all 8L - which is an M14x1.5 thread, and that's what you'll find up the fuel filter's bum too.

So why is it a taper thread? You don't get metric taper threads...! Nor do you get 17tpi imperial threads, which would be "close enough".

Or a better question might be: Why is it some mashed-in pipe fitting, and not a perfectly commonplace metric thread like the rest of the car? That would mean any fuel filter of this reference could be used, not just the ones with machine aluminium threads at the base.

Just when I thought DeLorean had thrown its last curveball....

With the big NEC show just around the corner thought we best start a thread.

First order of business roll-call! Who's planning on coming down, either just for the day or are you doing the whole weekend? Let us know below.
We are always looking for volunteers to help build the stand from the Thursday and man it throughout the weekend.

Discount tickets for club members can be found on this thread: http://deloreans.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?tid=5988

  VIN 3010
Posted by: Alanoftheyear - 21 Sep 2019, 16:11 - Forum: Members Cars - Replies (14)

The day has finally come! To be honest I thought it would've taken me way longer but after just 3/4 month of really, actively looking to buy...I am the owner of Delorean VIN 3010, grey interior, 5-speed manual with gas flap hood. 

Like other people here, I've been a BTTF fan since I was like 10, have collected every possible material item and replica from the trilogy, have an entire sleeve tattoo about it (with 2 Deloreans in it) and I’ve also done the filming location tour in Los Angeles twice. 

I was about time I got the last (and best) thing of them all, an actual Delorean car Smile

Since I decided to buy a car and started looking online and on the forums, my passion went beyond the movie and I came to actually really love and appreciate the car as “just a really cool classic car” instead of just as a movie character. 

I was about to buy a huge project/restoration car a few weeks ago when the opportunity came flying at my door from California for this car which is in pretty good condition (compared to the other one) and is a runner. 

I finalized the sale yesterday and the car will probably ship sometime next week.

Not sure how much actually needs to be done there but I’m looking forward to it arriving in Southampton!

Looking forward to connecting with the other owners now that I’m “one of you” and be at car meetings around the UK and Europe Smile

  Project car in France?
Posted by: Stuart Rees - 14 Sep 2019, 12:17 - Forum: DeLorean Cars or Parts For Sale or Wanted - Replies (3)

Since there's a shortage of project cars in the UK, seen this Delorean for sale in France.

https://www.annonces-automobile.com/ache...83-4452925

*Disclaimer* I have no idea if this is a genuine advert, but worth investigating...

At around £21K could be a good purchase, there is body damage (A trip to PJ Grady will sort that)

Located in Le Havre, so get it to the UK while were still in the EU...!

Thanks!
