Hmmm a bit worried about you guy's. That is brighter than the usual Mustang tail light.

I've been away with work so not much happening, but I tried heating up the novi impeller to remove it. Didn't budge, so I will get a press on the shaft.

Kerry, if you read this, I have tried pm'ing you but they won't go through, just stays in my outbox. If you are around the next few weeks and don't mind helping press the shaft out, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the pm Kerry.

I ended up buying a small 10tonne press for a good price. Takes up stuff all space so I easily justified it.
Pressed the shaft out of the impeller no dramas. There was a bit of oil on the outside of the seal but not much. Looked to be in pretty good nick.
The new seal I received looks nothing like the old one. Also, stupid question, but do you think the spring loaded side goes towards the bearings/oil side, or towards the impeller/dry side?

The lip (and spring) usually goes to the side being contained. So it should go to the oil side in this case.

Yeah I assumed that, I just second guessed myself as the shaft is pretty hard to get through the lip/spring side. I can see myself damaging the seal on assembly because I'm impatient.

You might be able to remove the spring to help get it on, but it's risky as you could damage the spring.

Ok, so I think I may go aftermarket ecu again. To help sway my mind, I went and bought the sensors, trigger wheel and ls coil packs. Now just to sway my wife.

So, this is what I was thinking with the mounting of the trigger wheel. Tell me if you think it will work or not.

My balancer has a .950" spacer as part of the balancer. This is because the crank pulley mounting point is recessed, and the spacer stops it hitting the balancer itself. See below



Now, I can get a pro race balancer that doesn't have the spacer as part of the balancer. I can purchase the spacer on it's own for about $30 bucks. So I was thinking that I could mount the trigger wheel inbetween the spacer and the balancer. The trigger wheel is 1/8" thick, so if I milled 1/8" off the back of the spacer, everything should line up hunky dory. Just drill 4 holes through the trigger wheel inline with the spacer holes. See below for pic of balancer and spacer.






The other thing that I'm not sure about is that the balancer is 6.4" in diameter. The trigger wheel inc the teeth is 6.75". Which leaves the teeth .175"(4.5mm) exposed past the balancer. The teeth are .250"(6.4) high.
Are the teeth protruding 4.5mm past the balancer going to be protruding enough to get a decent signal?

Is that the DIY autotune trigger wheel?
If so, it will be fine as that's what I'm using on mine.

4.5mm should be OK - the gap required for most sensors is under 1mm.

Yeah mate it is.
Just to confirm, the gap I am talking about is the gap between the edge of the balancer and the edge of the teeth(ie the valley of the teeth will be 'inside' the balancer diameter by 2mm and the rise of the teeth will extend past the balancer by 4.5mm) I will be able to get the sensor within a mill of the teeth.

My other option is to find a machinist who can just drill the appropriate size hole in the wheel and press it on to the rear of the balancer.

Yes I know what you mean. 4.5 should be enough distance from the top of the teeth to the balancer that it shouldn't affect the tooth readings.

So, I have a new set of seals on the way for my novi Poop Hit Fan

Put the shafts through the seals was a real pain the ass. Because they are square on the edges and not tapered, they just hit against the seal and try to invert the seal when it's being pressed. I ended up getting them on, but then took the case off to check something, and not only had the garter spring fallen out, but the seal was a little wonky. So I ended up pulling it apart again and removing both seals.

However, I think I may have found a good way of sliding the shaft through the seal for my next attempt. Similar to piston rings. I too the worm drive off some small clamps, and just used the clamps to stretch the seal open a little. When you slide the shaft through, it hits the clamp and pushes it out, but the seal goes on smoothly. Will make sense when I take photos the next time I do it.

Bloody good idea. Like

Bit of thin plastic sheet will do, to slide them on, like over head projector stuff
