    The increase in front end ride height may have prevented the theory from functioning efficiently in actual use. That's why I jack the rear end up - seems to give it that little push that it needs

    I've never touched the rad hoses, which are still OEM Dunmurry

    Surely original owners drove downhill at some point in the 1980's....

    Factory design doesn't work no matter how the car is pointed. That's a primary reason so many DeLoreans overheated when new.
