    Thought I would share this pet project. Wanted to see if I could clean up some starting issues with my stock 3 pulse trigger by switching to a 60-2 wheel for more resolution during low speed cranking and start up. I custom designed the wheel and sensor brackets myself and had everything coated. I integrated a trigger wheel set point at TDC and cam sync to make it easy to line up and install without guessing where the wheel position is.
    So far my impression is a vast improvement. Could not have done this project without the help from Lance.

    Can't take to much credit for fabricating, all of it was from CAD to laser cut parts.
    I do have a newer design I think is pretty slick with an integrated ring gaurd and sensor mount. This new design is also a little more flexibility with mounting options at various depths by simply just changing spacers. I'm a little surprised no one has had a similar idea. All the 60-2 aftermarket mounting is just carryover designs from the traditional flying magnet crank trigger wheels. I wanted something a little more safer with a flying sawblade under the hood.

    If the ring guards are Ferris this will affect the sensitivity of the pickup signal. Also you would need a way to adjust the sensor mounting to accommodate other engine configurations.

    I made this specific for Buick, wasn't intending on a universal fit. Was happy to just have a working copy. And yes I know, its made from aluminum, not magnetic material.

    CADding is just a modern way of fabbing.
