Trigger wheels

PostPost by: pauljones » Sun Jun 12, 2011 6:50 pm

For those that have efi,how and what have you used as a trigger wheel, I have looked at various sites and can't decide.I do have a cvh ford that has a lower pulley wheel and looks like it could be useable.I'll be using an emerald ecu if that helps

Any ideas guys?

Hi Paul

I had a Ford 36 pulse wheel fitted to the crank pulley and will be mounting the sensor broadly speaking in the position shown. After installation will cut of a tooth for the reference position of around 90 degrees BTDC on cylinder 1.

hope this helps best of luck

cheers

Paul,

I bought a lower pulley from QED and they also have the bracket for the pickup which bolts to the lower front pan and comes with spacers for the bolt up. I am using a Megasquirt and ground off a tooth on the pulley for the missing tooth.

Paul,

QED do a nice trigger crank pulley. http://qedmotorsport.co.uk/qed-shop/lot ... y-36-teeth

You need to remove a tooth in the location that suits where you put the sensor. This is mine--

QED also supply a sensor bracket, but I made mine to suit a 2 point fixing.
