[DML] Re: Angle Drive (WE ARE NOT ALONE))



I would also like to point out that my XJS V12 Jaguar has a nearly identical angle drive made by Smith in England. Jag owners do have similar issues with them and have been wrestling with this for years. The speedometer and cable system is almost the same as the Delorean's except the drive terminates at the tranny instead of the wheel hub. If you follow this link, you can see what one Jag owner did to eliminate the angle drive. (with pictures)http://bernardembden.com/xjs/speedca/index.htm  So don't feel too bad, you're not alone. Unfortunately, I'm at double the risk for failure. I've just been lucky I guess.

  Someone explain how some cars still are running with the origional
  angle drive with the plastic gears and others (a small number
  presumably) go through 4 angle drives with metal gears. There has to
  be something wrong with the cars that can chew up the metal gears. It
  would be interesting to pull the speedometer heads on those cars and
  possibly find parts jamming the works. Either that or some other
  problem like a cable that is too long, a missing lower support, etc.
  Bulletproofing the angle drive is only covering up the basic problem
  IMHO. An interesting point, on the cars that destroy the origional
  plastic gears the same cars are also capable of destroying the metal
  gears. Why is that when other cars can live with the plastic gears?
