The wheel and sensor arrived today.
I mocked up the wheel and made a mount for the sensor, which I will paint later along with the wheel. Its made from 6mm alloy, so it shouldn't move at all.
It looks funny in this picture because it's twisted to sit at the right angle.



Because of a recent change of plans, I can't permanently mount the wheel as I need a new crank pulley.
Once the new pulley arrives I will mount the wheel properly.

I made up the brackets tonight that will be welded to the rocker covers and mocked up a couple of the coils.




Next thing I did was removed the battery and my modified battery tray.
When I originally put the wider radiator in, I decided to put the battery in at an angle for more room.


However, if I just move the overflow bottle to the other side, I can actually JUST fit the battery in the original location.
I will need to modify the battery tray, but it should be fine.

Now there's plenty of room for "stuff" behind the battery and above the alternator.

Like more relays.... Poke

It might be the image - but is not the sensor suppose to be aligned on the same plain with the wheel so the end of the sensor is 1mm (or so) away from the edge of the wheel. This allows the Gaps in the wheel to affect the magnetic field and hence change the signal provided to the ECU? It look like it is on the side of the plate not on the edge.

BTW: Coil mounts look good.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Yes, hence "once the pulley arrives I will mount the wheel properly".

At the moment the wheel is sitting up against the lip on the balancer. Once I get the new pulley and work out how I'm going to mount it, I will machine the wheel to suit. The wheel will move back 6mm or so once it's machined.

I actually do have another relay to add, to power the coils and injectors, so I have bought a set of stackable relay bases to make things neater.

Krisr kindly donated his spare LS1 coil harness, so I will pick this apart to use the coil plugs on mine.
I donated him a coolant sensor in return.



Hopefully my 6mm x 160mm cap head bolts arrive this week so I can bolt the coils together and weld the brackets to the rocker covers.

I don't think I will see my new crank pulley until mid April, so I won't be able to do too much more until then.

Got the 6 x 160mm cap head bolts to bind the coils together. Will hopefully weld these to the rocker covers at some stage this weekend. Also hope to get some smaller washers as well Wink2

I like what you are doing - looks great.

Had you considered getting an MS3 and go the whole hog so to speak? (aka Full sequential fuel and ignition).

Not really. That would require a complete re-wire (and lot more wires) ... just can't bring myself to do that at the moment.

Started picking apart the LS1 loom so I could modify it for my setup.


One of the looms modified:


First waterpoof plug for the 4 signal wires


One side finished including the second waterproof plug for 12V feed and grounds

Done!

The coils are shown with the coil boots attached that I bought so I can just shorten my existing plug leads. Pretty reasonably priced from Summit.
For reference, they are Taylor part number 46069.

Nice one Jeff. Was talking to my systems guy at work who is a bit of a classic car guy. He drove in his beautiful old Fairlady in and he did his own injection system, from memory his is sequential. Knows a hell of a lot about this stuff so if you need anything let me know and I can hook you up.a couple of pics below

My ECU doesn't have enough outputs for sequential, but I'm not really bothered. Lots of cost and extra wiring for a small gain in low end drivability. I like my little ECU hiding in the glove box.

Nice little ride he's done there!
