RE: [DML] Angle Drive


  I am surprised that you haven't just changed your front tire diameter to compensate for the angle drive mismatch. :)

Near as I can tell we are among the only users of Smiths Industries angle drives on the axle stub (Martin Gutkowski claims that Citroen did it on one of their models). Jaguar E type apparently had two of them -- one on the transmission and one attached to the speedometer itself. This is what a Smiths Industries drive looks like on a Porsche:
Lotus mounts their angle drive to the transmission as well, but in a vertical orientation.

Many Triumph owners have replaced their angle drives with direct cables, so I'm assuming their gear ratio is 1:1. This fellow replaced his two Jaguar angle drives with a direct cable, so they seem to be 1:1 as well: Perhaps our 1.125:1 gear ratio has something to do with our high failure rate.
