hi baldy and mark, thanks for the tips,..
baldy i already made a new pulley from an old sud one, one piece , no rubber section,.. im thinking of going along with you plan tho and get a sensor ring and have it or the pulley machined so they sit together nicely and then weld it. i read that the gap needs to be 90 deg round clockwise from the sensor when the cranks at tdc right ?
what air gap have you set on the sensor?
Mark,.. i very very nearly did also go down that route ( i still might if the front pulley gets tricky ).. i went for the sud flywheel as its very much lighter than the 16v one .. i was surprised in the difference!
i did also notice i would have to notch the sud bell housing as the crank sensor sticks out a little from the engine rear casing! its those silly things that can catch you out ehh??
ooooo baldy yours is on carbs isnt it? have you kept the standard curved trumpets into the air box? are they large enough for 40mm carbs?
also ... last question, honest lol .... coil pack needs to have the leads paired up as 1 and 2,.. 3 and 4, if i have worked that out right ?
