I finally got back to work on this one. I might be getting close to actually installing the EFI. Go figure.
In getting it buttoned back up, I tested the charcoal vapor canister, and the purge line does not hold vacuum. So I ordered a NOS DeLorean time machine Carbon Canister.
Unfortunately, it does not hold vacuum either. It holds better, but not great. The original one holds ZERO, the vacuum gauge never moves off 0. The DeLorean one registers vacuum, but bleeds it all off in a couple seconds.
So, I just put the stock one back in and ordered a purge valve for a early 90’s Chevrolet Caprice.
The plan is to cap the carb vent port and the purge signal port. Connect the fuel tank to the canister in the stock location and purge port to the new valve.
Too bad, I was hoping to have the first time machine scrambler. (On a side note, I have a family friend that used to work at DeLorean. He would get a loaner vehicle every now and then and his favorite one to borrow was the replica time machine with the mr fusion and a fog machine.)
