EDIS-6, how does/did you attach your 36-1

Post #1 by sdiesel » Sat Apr 13, 2019 1:18 am

crank shaft wheel?
my 36-1 wheel is a stamped steel piece from mega jolt.
I conjured all kind of ideas, the best being a sleeve that fits inside the damper well, and is welded to the trigger wheel.
bore and thread the end of the crank bolt, for a stud to hold the trigger wheel tight to the damper face.
the whole idea is clumsy, and inept.
I need input.
my trigger wheel has 6 slots in it, which, of course do not line up with the puller threaded holes.
otherwise, simple fix if they did.
but noooo.

follow on question.
did anyone determine if the cam sensor from a different ford will fit, I recall a discussion.
the immediate thing is modify the ds ii dist. but it's not tight.
somewhere I heard a 351 cam signal assy, fits the 300, with a longer pump drive shaft ...

I'm gonna go a-searchin, but it's a slow nite on the board and a topic worthy of discussion afresh

with just a touch of uncustomary creativity, I looked up 36 tooth sprokets, and of course there were myriad choices.
seems the best guess is a mini bIke or gas powered bicycle drive sprokets in steel.

shave one tooth, and many of these sprokets have multiple holes in them to account for the different applications.
at very least they are not slotted, so in theory, were I competant enough in measurement, I could line up and bore holes with the puller holes in the balancer, and be done with the issue.

My first thought were the threaded holes in the balancer. Are those the puller holes you speak of?

You could make a spacer with holes for the balancer holes and offset holes for the sprocket. Kinda like a wheel spacer has.

Or find one that has no holes and drill your own.

That is what I have done on a drag car for ancillary drive on my SFI harmonic balancer.

Puller holes:yes 3threaded 5/16 holes for the puller to get a grip. Getting the blooming Trigger wheel exactly centered is a not so simple task. At least for me.
I suppose I could use socket head bolts and nuts in 3of the slots and jigger the wheel till it measures evenly.
the socket head of the sliding bolt inside the damper well should hold it centered at 3 points and I move them along the slots untill the wheel sits exactly centered.
Flip it over and with centering punch mark my bore through the puller holes.
Is that amateur to hear good result?
Further there is not much metal on the wheel where those bolts would hit...

Question. Is it a bad idea to use self tapping screws and attach the wheel
To the outer ring?

Yes it would be a bad idea, since to goal of going to a crank triggered ignistion wheel is to have more accurate ignistion timing events, mounting it to the outer rubber mounted ring would allow movement of its timing point. The best would be to mount to hub that solidly mounted to the crankshaft. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

Most people mount them on the backside of the damper on the OD of the seal surface. You may need to chuck it in a lathe to extend the machined surface past the outside area between the timing cover and rear of damper/balancer. A snug press fit is all that's needed, and since it's on the rear of the balancer, it's out of the way of belts and pulleys and conceals nicely. I've done several for people on the forums.
