It passed !

Ok, it failed first on the left hand indicator dashboard lamp not illuminating.
One replacement bulb later and I got the certificate.

Very Happy :D

I have not done much to my valuable "Mighty Auto" over the last couple of years (, too busy with work, my main daily driver cars and helping fellow D owners). However, after starting in may I removed the left hand manifold as it was chuffing chuffing like a train due to blown exhaust gaskets. After suffering with sheared and seized studs I finally got them all out of the left hand side.

After a prompt delivery from Delorean Europe (thanks Ed) supplying a full exhaust kit, I have finally redone the left hand exhaust after spending half a day in my hot humid garage pit. She is now all back together and running, although it's time to redo the valve clearances and reduce the primary fuel pressure and.........

Chuff me it's never ending !

Well due to bring snowed under at work I've done absolutely nothing to my car or had much of a social life so sorry for not being in touch with folk.

This should change now that I've now finally finished off a control system at an airport and a long list of legacy projects others started but I've had to finish.

The upshot is that I should be around more to enjoy what I do most I.e. fix Deloreans and have a laugh with friends on here.

I'll just check the injectors as I'm in the mood

While I'm in there I'll do the spark plugs. ..
Distributor swap
vac pipes
clear out the valley. .....
Valve clearances.

What have I done! !!!!! I feel the (back) pain on the "Dan's 2nd Delorean" level. ......
