Re: [DML] Re: angle-drive

The metal plate can be easily removed by destaking it. There are three or four places around the outside of the disk where the zink housing has been staked. Take a dremmel tool and grind out material to allow the disk to be removed without interference. Behind the disk is a hardened steel disk that acts as a thrust/wear plate for one of the gears. Because the gears are a bevel/constant mesh type they develop axial thrust and this inner disk keeps wear to a minimum. Once inside you will quickly see what you have to deal with. I found my gears were in fine shape but the flex drive input shaft had failed at the internal swedge area. Good Luck.

Actually, my brother drilled out the back & found ANOTHER plate behind it which popped out relatively easliy. Popped it back in, then soldered the drill hole on the outer plate, & ta-daaa..... still didn't work right. Back to a drawing board? $70 to replace it.... hmmm..... with an electrical engineer/tinkerer for a brother, it may very well be cheaper to rebuild it. Remember, I spent $10 on a solid SS tube for the clutch line, $.04 to repair the clutch slave cyl., $.75 to replace a diode in the ign. mod., & I've rewound the door-lock solonoids by hand. Bit of Scotch, anyone? I'll carry on. Drive Stainless Robert VIN 6924
