Off topic but...
Early Lotus Esprits used a Citroen transaxle. A special tool is required to remove the large nut at the back of the secondary shaft, and I made one years ago. It's not pretty, but it works. A Citroen specialist in the Neatherlands, Harry Martens, developed an improved tool that's a 'real piece of work' just by design. Plus, it's beautifully machined out of stainless, then buffed to a shine. He asks US$250 for a glorified socket. I didn't need one, since my old hack still works. But I bought one just because it's such a fine piece of metal sculpture. Sometimes want exceeds need.

Regards,
Tim Engel
