Not available as a stand alone part from anyone else! The original DeLorean coupler is made from soft mild steel, with a very low strength, and is also only partially splined internally (less than 50%). Failure of the coupler can result in damage to other components, including both the input and main shafts. DPNW has developed an improved transmission coupler that is made of better steel alloy than the original, is heat treated to a strength range about 40% stronger, and is fully splined for maximum durability. DPNW has also incorporated an improved spiral roll pin to reduce the chances of the roll pin shearing under load, which can lead to the failure of the coupler.
