So after almost 2 months of fighting with Fastway couriers, my crank trigger parts arrived a couple days ago.
The guy that owns the shop near Chris at SMS does some machining in his spare time, so I went to him to see what he thought.
What we ended up doing is milling 3mm off the pulley spacer to allow for the 3mm thick trigger wheel to sit in between. He then milled up a locating ring which centres the trigger wheel and the pulley spacer on the balancer. After that, I took it home and lined up the 6th tooth(60degrees as per Haltech's recommendation) to the sensor when the motor was at tdc, then measured where to drill the holes in the trigger wheel. It doesn't have to be exact, as my sensor bracket is adjustable, so I can fine tune it there. Took it back to him today, and he drilled the 4 bolt holes in the trigger wheel.

The trigger bracket is from Innovators West, which I got for cheap(ish).

Just spend the last few hours test fitting everything and getting the clearance right on the sensor. I have it at 0.95-1mm at the moment.

As always, nothing ever just fits. The trigger wheel, when mounted to the balancer, fouled on the lower water pump bolt housing. So I had to grind that down to clear the wheel.

Looks good! Same Cherry sensor as mine.
FYI if you ever need a replacement, they're available from RS Components for about $50.

Thanks mate. Did you use a pull-up resistor on yours? Also, what gap are you running? Lastly, who wants to weld a valve cover 😄😄

I'm all but out of gas for the TIG at the moment. Mum just got back from the UK so I will see if she can still get me cheap gas Mr. Green

My welds are not beautiful, but they're not terrible. Especially if the mods are done well with small gaps.
You might have seen the intake stuff I did on gbx's car.

Yes mine has a pull-up on it. Not sure if Haltech requires a pull-up or not.

Edit: my gap is fairly tight - somewhere around 0.5mm from memory. I had issues with mine originally and moved the gap all over the place trying to fix it.
In the end it turned out I needed to remove a capacitor from the ECU so I could probably go back to a wider gap. But if it aint broke etc...

That looks like a whole lot of fancy. I will look into this after i get my engine up and running in as is. I just want it running first. But at at least i know we have some experts on the subject.

Your actual tune won't change at all George, and you can even leave your distributor in place. It would just trigger from crank instead of inside your Dissy.
So you can still have a single coil output through the distributor, but the tach signal would be 36-1.
It would be so much easier to do it all on the engine stand before it goes in. You could even mount the 36-1 and sensor but not connect it initially.

But get all the mounting organised while it's off the car.

Looking great. What cam sensor if any are you using?


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Yeah I'll give Haltech a call and see if it does. I'll leave mine at 1mm for now and see how we go.

Mate I don't care how the welds look ha ha. I'll shop around this weekend as I would like to get it done so I can assemble everything. If not I'll let you know. How much is gas?

Mate, I'll be honest, it's a pain in the but to setup. Do it while everything is off. If you don't use it right away who cares, but at least it's there. You'll have to remove your radiator, probably accessories too. If you are going to do it, when your motor is out is the time.

I have a factory ford one from one of the US models. It's a 3 wire sensor. The ones in the AU xr8's were 2 wire ones. I didn't actually know it was a 3 wire one when I bought it from rockauto, but I'll stick with it now that I have it. To be honest, I bought it to fill in the distributor hole. My originial plan was not to use it as a sensor.
Still unsure if I am going to use it. Just another sensor that can fail. I wired it up to the Haltech, so I have the choice if I want to.

3 wire will probably be hall effect. 2 wire will be VR.

Gas - depends where I get it from. If I go to a welding supplies (mostly only open weekdays) its about $80 for the "E" size I use.
If I have to go to somewhere like Mitre10 trade, it's $120 for the "E" size.

If I get it on my mums old employee account... well I'd rather not say publically Mr. Green

Good old mum.

With the hot weather this weekend, I'll stay indoors and get the tune sorted out.
I noticed in the software I can set the crank trigger for rising/falling edge. I am assuming rising edge is the leading edge of the tooth as it hits the sensor going clockwise.
Is there any preference for this setting or much of a muchness?
