[DML] Re: Speedometer Troubles



Your friend's '82 DeLorean probably has a 36mm axle nut. I had the same question while I was replacing my angle drive. It said everywhere that it should be 32mm but soon found out that the later DeLoreans had a 36mm. It was about a $40 socket and wasn't easy to find at least where I live.

I pulled the upper speedometer cable from the lambda service counter and the cable end was "chewed up". So I replaced the lambda service counter and the upper speedometer cable. So everything should work great right?? WELL the speedometer is once again working BUT it bounces 5-7 mph as you increase speed. Ughhhh. With all new hardware I began to wonder what could possibly be the issue. The angle drive that I installed is loose. Even when the nut is tightened to spec and the outer axle nut is tight you can still rotate the angle drive. Could this be the problem? If so, how do I fix it? Thats about the only thing I think could be the problem. The only other problem I can think of is a problem with the speedometer. Please help.
