The 034 bracket is designed to use the OEM VR sensor. I made an adaptor to use a 12mm threaded body hall sensor in it's place. Elaw is working on a chip to use my sensors in place of the OEM flywheel sensors for MS. I believe it translates to a 34-1 trigger. As for the harmonics, mine has held up so far, on Jim's race 20v, and my MC1. The attached pic is the current setup I am running. Works really well with my MS3X.

I am confused about something - there's a box that divides the OEM 135 tooth flywheel trigger by three to make a virtual 45+1 wheel. That has nothing to do with addon trigger wheels.

MS3-Pro will read any kind of sensor you want, all config is done in software. And the circuitry for reading the sensor is way more robust than on the kit boards, you don't have to fart around trying to make a VR sensor read well at low and high RPM. Downside is they don't make the MS3-Pro anymore, they have something else that is like $200-300 more.

Fortunately, we have a leftover system that hasn't been installed yet and probably never will be since everyone who wants standalone seems to REALLY want XFI or BigStuff3 since that is what everyone else uses.

Anyway, how did you mount your wheel? When I put mine on, it sits so far back that I had to go Texas Sawzall Massacre on the timing cover, and I had to do some heavy relief of the oil pump housing for the weld bead to clear.

Mine I believe is one of the early 034 setups. The damper was machined on the backside to make it have clearance to the timing cover before the wheel was welded on.

I hear you, but I couldn't see how to do that without the wheel having a co-spatial event with the inner belt sheave. When I welded mine up, I set the wheel on thin washers. There's going to be relative motion between the outside of the damper and the inside, so I figured being in hard contact would be Bad. At any rate, even if I'd welded it right to the pulley section, it would still be in hard contact with the cover.

Very curious. And it occurs to me now that I never actually have had accessories on the engine yet. I should probably do that sooner than later.

In the first pic, you can see that the trigger wheel is pretty much tight to the damper wheel. I thought I had a better pic of this, but can't seem to find it. The second pic shows the trigger wheel is TIG welded to the inner hub portion. It's also in line with where the original back of the pulley ring was.
