[DML] Re: second gear fork pin ($10,000 question)

I'd say this transmission is easy to work on, a local transmission 
shop that's done other manual transmission repairs would have no 
problem with this one [you may have to supply then with the manual, 
torque specs etc.]. Just as long as the differential goes back in 
the correct way which you'll have to stress to your shop. I'd paint 
one of the 'side gears' with red paint so you know when you get it 
back-it's back together correctly. If you have any doubts then send 
it off to the DeLorean experts. -----Dani B. #5003
