[DML] Re: Clunk, clunk, clunk

The "best" advice would be to remove the transmission and final drive
and send it to a Delorean vender that can set the pinion for you. It
will require the removal and replacement of the transmission, the
shipping to and from, and the labor to set the carrier. If you can
handle the R & R of the trans it isn't too bad, a whole lot cheaper
than replacing the final drive parts or the transmission! Maybe one of
the venders would do a swap giving you credit on your old one so you
don't have to wait to get your old one back? While you are at it you
may want to consider replacing the clutch too. I don't think a local
shop will be able to do this adjustment correctly, some special tools
are required. Getting a used transmission isn't the best solution, it
may have problems inside that need to be fixed just like yours.

lol.  This car is my daily driver and has been running flawlessly
since my engine rebuild last year.  I shoulda did more research on
that trans leak before I replaced the O-ring however.
