Re: [DML] Angle Drive

I have a faint recollection that this angle drive is similar to a part used in Jaguars.  My recollection was that it was attached to the tranny and not to the wheel as in the DeLoreans.  
Add me to the list of frustrated angle drive owners.  My speedo bounces around aas spped increases.  When I run the speedo cable on a drill, the speedo is rock solid.  I've replaced the angle drive and each has similar performance as soon as speed increases.  My current theory is that the cable in the axle is too long causing it to push on the angle drive.  But it is just a theory.

Interesting information on that James, thanks!
>From the documentation do you have any idea where the part was sourced from, and if it was used on other European vehicles??
I ask because it may add some credibility to the argument that the part was engineered to be mounted on the right side of the car, and being mounted on the left side of the DeLorean could be a reasonable explanation as to the higher failure rate we have seen.  Having never had one apart, I don't know if the gears are cut such that they would have less resistance going one direction versus the other?  Or maybe the lubrication would flow better in one direction versus the other?  Or, maybe this IS rocket surgery (or brain science)!
