    crank senser question

    just need to find out if the zlex crank senser can be mounted on the out side off the engine. i know its for a internal pick up but can i use and mount the same senser on the out side off the engine to pick up the crank signal from the pully.

    thanks.

    Whilst it is normal for vaux engines to use the crank pulley as pick up for the crank sensor the zlex pulley doesnt have any teeth on it.
    Are you using a different pulley?

    What is your reason for wanting to mount it externally ? Standalone management ? A mate of mine is using Autronic management on his C20LET, he had to have an external trigger wheel made up with 2 8mmx8mm teeth oppisite each other as the C20 uses a 60-2 teeth setup. Roughly like this:



    If you are switching to standalone I'd imagine you would have to run a wasted spark setup from the 20xev engine.

    cheers mate i know what u are saying but the problem i have is .. do the stanerd senser from a zlex engine work on the out side off the engine. if it does then i can get a pully and mount the senser on the out side

    The pulley you plan to use, does it have for example,60 teeth and 2 missing like the internal trigger wheel ? The standard sensor will be calibrated to fire when it picks up them 2 missing teeth 180 degrees from each other. If that makes sense?

    cheers mate so what i need to do is copy the teeth pattern from the crank ring and get a pully made to that pattern and it sould work.

    In theory yes, aslong as the teeth are at the same degree/position as the standard trigger wheel. If not it will fire at the wrong time.
