Re: [DML] Angle Drive Cable Length .... too long?

Nick, I have worked on one DeLorean that had what you describe. The lower
cable was about a meter in length, (maybe a bit longer), and it looked like
it could get kinked-up in some spots.
 I tried to keep the cable as slack as possible both in and out of the cabin
and I also removed the cable from the sleeve to give it a good measure of
grease. Then I made sure that the bracket was holding the cable firmly in
 Unfortunatly, the owner hasn't driven her car since I replaced the AD, so I
can't report on any problems.
 The VIN was in the 4800's. Not sure if that makes a difference.
 Makes me wonder if some lower cables were produced in different lengths or
if this one was an oddball part from another type of car that just happen to
fit the DeLorean.
 Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

The cable is up against the cup's end and exerting pressure on the angle drive. Not very much, but a bit.
