It's been a while since I have been active on HybridZ. My car and projects have been on the back burner for a while but I'm excited to say that I have been putting more time in the garage! Tinkering with my VQ240z, building a LS2 240z, and working on other projects (Such as a L28-VQ 6 Speed Transmission Adapter )
Another member on the board asked for me to design a crank trigger setup for the L28. Even though I don't have a L28 in my car any more I still love the engine and hope to build another one in the not too distant future so I decided to take it on. I am ready to cut material and I wanted to see how much interested there was for a setup like this as I am hoping to produce and sell as an easy to install 'bolt-on' kit.
- Required Pulley: Euro Single Groove (Available from MSA for 90USD)
- DIY Autotune Hall Sensor
- Trigger Wheel (Laser Cut 1018CR)
- Trigger Wheel Location Tool (3D Printed PLA)
- Trigger Sensor Mount (Black Anodized 6061)
- Distributor Block Off Plate (Black Anodized 6061)
- All hardware required to mount the components (316 Stainless)
The kit is designed to work only with the single groove pulley. The trigger wheel comes with the center section in place which locates it concentrically on the pulley snout, the plastic tool is used to align it properly using the keyway as a guide. Once in place (3) 8-32 holes are marked and then tapped into the pulley. The center web of the crank trigger wheel can then be easily cut away and the outer ring bolted in place. The crank trigger mount bolts to the 240z timing marker location and has a stainless adjustable timing pointer. It is designed to line up to TDC when centered but allows you to double check against your engine and adjust to get the marker perfect if desired. The mount is designed to fit properly without requiring adjustment, the sensor angle can be adjusted in your software if a slight tweak is needed. I designed the mount and trigger wheel to package as nice as possible.
The distributor block off plate uses an o-ring seal to eliminate the paper gasket, and could also be available separately if desired for those with a different crank trigger setup.
I have made the components from PLA for test fit and everything looks good so far, next step is to get the pieces cut. Please let me know if you have any interest or if you have any thoughts or input. I am certainly open to suggestions for improvement.
Please see the attached pictures for CAD images and mock up pictures.
These should be ready in about 3 weeks, pending any additional changes. Cost will be around 225 for the kit (without a sensor or pulley) the more interest the cheaper they can be!
