[DML] Re: WANTED: Angle Drive



Since it's still on my webspace,

I ran a similar setup on my DeLorean for years:

I used it as a backup, since my angle drive broke 5 times within one  
year
AND it had the benefit of being metric, having a maximum speed of 299kmh
and extra trip- and odometers, a triptimer, Maximum speed memory and a
calculation for average speed, ideal on some cruises/trips I attended...

The computer was mounted on a bit of plastic tubing that I screwed
in place through the hole for the dimmer-knob (since that didn't
work I just hardwired to maximum output and removed the knob).

Great little thing, if I had to do it again, all I'd change is adding
illumination; I allready had something rigged to be fed from the  
illumination-
wires for an automatic, but never got around to fitting it.

And then I sold my car :-)

Good luck to all,

JAN
