Do any of you guys have this trigger setup on a small block? I'd like to see where you have the sensor mounted in order to make it all work.

Thanks guys.

Jerry, just a heads up, your website has been down for the last couple of days- that I know of.

I used a MSD crank trigger mount on the passenger side for my sensor. I was running a 36-1 wheel a friend cut out for me and I switched to Andy's wheel when he released it, nice piece!

Edit, top pic is before Andy's wheel. I need to snap a new pic because it looks all fancy down there now with the Doty pulley and billet 36-1 wheel haha.

I like that.. I can't decide to try to setup a 36-1 or a msd 4x with a hall sensor on it.

Do you have any updated pics of this?

Also is that the ZF/cherry sensor?

I can take one when I get home with it on the car. Yes that is a cherry sensor.

I used SD concepts mounted on the driver side. Had to get a bit milled off the sensor mounting surface to get the airgap correct for microsquirt.

This is the best picture I could get installed. It took some doing with MSD to buy the parts for the mount. They sell the crank trigger pieces individually but the people on the phone aren't real good at knowing what is what. The blank aluminum tab came from a universal kit they used to offer and the mount is just a regular small block deal. If you go this route take a deep breath and maybe a stiff drink before you call them it was interesting. Maybe its better now that Holley owns them?

The SD concepts piece wasn't around when I did this project but it looks very nice. I have his adapter to use a Jeep Cam sensor in place of a distributor and it is very nice.

I need to remove the wheel and clean it up and paint it or have it anodized. It looked so pretty in its bare billet form but it is starting to rust a little. I think he sells them coated, this was an early one.

Thanks for the replys guys. I'm gonna check out the ad mount and the mad and see what I can find. I've never set one up before or done the research but I assume since there are people putting the sensor on either passenger or driver side that it works both ways. Where is the sensors supposed to go in relation to tdc?

Innovators west makes a nice bracket that places the sensor on the driver's side

With my setup(Megasquirt MS3X) it doesn't matter, there is an adjustment for the sensors position in relation to TDC and the missing tooth. I am sure other systems have something similar.

I considered the Innovators West bracket, but had plenty of adjustment or mounting options with the SDC kit and microsquirt. The SDC sensor is the same one that DIYAutotune sales and the trigger wheel is infinitely adjustable. Worked great once I got the sensor spacing set correctly.
