Re: [DML] Re: Lotus Engineering



I'm doing a chassis restoration and turbo engine swap on an 82 daily  
driver with over 70k miles on its original angle drive. The state of  
the chassis and evidence of previous repairs on it (a canadian car)  
tells me the angle drive did not have an easy life!.

I think angle drive failures could well fall into that category of  
"damned if you do and damned if you don't". ie is killed by use as  
much as lack of use.

THE ANGLE DRIVE IS NOT UNIQUE TO THE DELOREAN AND WAS A PERFECTLY  
NORMAL ITEM ON MANY CARS OF THIS ERA.

Let's face it, the DeLorean has very few known design flaws (door lock  
module, fan fail module, angle drive...) none are exactly  
catastrophic. Be thankful.
