RE: [DML] Broken torsion bar question, answer?


I have seen a torsion bar that has been welded and it worked o/k, it has to
kept straight in a jig whilst it is being welded.

The problem is that the torsion bar is twisted in liquid nitrogen. This
gives the
bar the properties it has.

I have spoken to the company that made these and they did not object to
anyone using the
technology. The problem is that it is an expensive process.

This is actually a spin-off from Military technology as the principle used
on the Delorean is the same
as that used for lifting the canopy over the pilot in I think the F16 jet.

I do not know if it is still manufactured for military use but if you are in
the states you may find
someone could make it, 98% of the problem is not the manufacturing but the
processing cost.

I hope this helps.

  Subject: [DML] Broken torsion bar question

  Today I discovered my driver's side torsion bar had broken. I had even
  kept it under stressed just to prevent this from happening. I will make
  some calls but from what I have read on line, I am out of luck. finding
  this part.
  I want to get it welded. Can some one provide me with the specs on the
  type of metal involved so I can find a welder capable of attempting
  this repair.
  I just finished rebuilding the frame, and now this, any positive
  suggestions are appreciated.
