Re: Home made 36-1 trigger wheel

That is what I was thinking...I am hearing that the magnets in the wheel are better for high horsepower engines that have crank flex issues.

Do not know about the high horsepower but I expect the crank to flex...The 3 magnet wheel would have been a lot easier to make...One day I hope to find out.
