RE: [DML] Re: ebay Louvre Struts or another reason to buy from a DeLorean Vendor!



Marc,

That sounds correct as the straight ones tended to bind on the engine cover.
You can easily update the early straight version to the later bent one with
a bench vise and a hammer. I believe DMCH has both versions in their
inventory but the bent ones usually work better. There is however a third
version used on at least one of the earliest cars that had a shape similar
to the bottom half of an hourglass if you can visualize that. I replaced it
years ago for someone because it was rusted and the plastic slide was
broken. At one point I sent it to be re-plated and now it graces a DeLorean
curio shelf above my desk which also contains Legend turbo parts and a set
of triple Weber carbs with PVR manifolds.

IIRC, there are 2 styles of this part.  The early ones
were straigt, later ones are bent.

I replaced my (straight) one with one from DMCH.  The
replacement was bent.
