He got a pair of new ones with the car, that thing will probably run just fine, he should just get a plate and start driving it around, save the restoration for later

75 99 ITB racer
So as mentioned over on Saabrally, Delorean and I went down and got this from maryland the other day. Its rough, it was $200, and oddly enough it runs really good :yay: .
When we got it here, we popped in a battery, filled it with gas, and it basically fired right up, then died and started making funny noises. We realized the funny noise was the fuel distributor sticking open, filling the engine with fuel . So we pulled it out, took it apart and cleaned the plunger, and now it runs fine, except the fuel cell is leaking profusely, so that will need fixing. The airflow meter is stock, the distributor is from a porsche 924. No idea what else is done to the motor, other than the obvious header and oil cooler. Any other things people spot would be handy to know.
would be interesting to know some history about the car, we didnt get a chance to talk to the owner, as Tweek handled that. Its got some stickers from Bare Bones, which is apparently the place for ribs, and theres a faint outline on the roof where it used to say Driver: Dairen Bell (i think thats what it says anyway).
Seems to have a welded diff, or something, really hard to steer, scuffs real badly around turns, and spins both wheels. We're gonna pop the diff cover off to investigate this shortly. Seems to have some sort of lowering springs, as well as bilsteins all around, and came with a spare set of bilsteins for the front. Also has a pretty neat set of custom sway bars.
Has what looks like an Autopower cage, with some fairly shady welding, and base plates that are too small, not sure if it will pass tech for basically anything, though LeMons doesnt look like they are that picky, so it might just be ok for that with the addition of a second set of door bars and some welding cleanup. Seat needs to be lowered too, as my head is above the bars without a helmet. Interestingly they chose to keep the headliner in the car, as well as all the interior junk, including the passenger seat!
all the pics I have are here http://photobucket.com/because99racecar the car is actually pretty solid, can't wait to straighten a couple things out and go racing!
