A massive thank you to Dan AKA Dbro 4 for sorting out my misfire (which in the end involved changing leads,dizzy,cap/arm & plugs) and all in under 2 hours - absolute top draw Dan!

Thank you also to Alistair for replacing my belt, which was well overdue a change. You know how much I like to hold onto my old belts though Al! ;)

Unsurprisingly, the car runs beautifully again now and didn't miss a beat on the way home.

Always great to see everyone again, as well as meeting some new members. Sorry I couldn't stay over for the duration this time, but a good laugh as always.

All the best



No worries Carl, glad to hear everything is back to normal!

Here is the thread Carl is referring to if you haven't already seen it !

Firstly it was great to finally attend and meet everyone. Your wives definitely made mine feel welcome ( which is good as I am given the thumbs up for another meeting!).

A big thank you to Nick, Alister, Darren, Mike and everyone else I reaped from. The car was finally running right for the drive home. The car was as good as gold this morning so I would take that as problem solved.

Work done -
CPR changed - Nick to recalibrate my old one
frequency valve relay - better connections made.
Pressure spring re-shimmed 0.5mm shim. - Pressure now 5.3bar.
Throttle linkages adjusted correctly.
Air intake gasket leak fixed.
Mixture fettled to perfect running - Nick (the delorean whisperer)

reaping success! :D
Bills yet to be settle :shock:




Nice to finally meet you , glad you both enjoyed it , and welcome to the fold!

A GREAT Weekend as usual! :D
Good to catch up with every one and meet and welcome a few new folk too!
A very respectable turn out of cars and more good work done in the carpark.
Thanks to those unsung hero's for making it all happen.
Looking forwards to the next one.

Thanks again to everyone who came , some excellent banter as usual with ALL on top form.


We were blessed with some good weather as well to help things along

I had the best drive coming home I have ever had since buying the car..

The Black Beauty owes some thanks to Mike W for the D Card and working overtime!
Mike K for sorting out a strange problem with my central locking ( we had a Mark Houghton moment at one stage)
Nick the D Whisperer for his usual fettling to mine and others.


Darren Collins for finally bringing his car up.

Great to see Alex's car finally on the road and his bottle of J12!

It's a team effort that makes these weekends what they are, thanks again to every single one of you

Looks like you had a good meet up guys. Glad to see your car back on the road Al. All ok with the engine and box now? Hope to get my car rebuilt for the next meet and come along next time.

Yes mate all ok, just sump gasket leak which isn't surprising given the amount of times it's been off

See you next time mate

Oi, Worzel ;) I think you'll find my car visits each year. Would be more frequent but it takes me that long inbetween to clean it. :lol:
