This post can be used for electronic ignition and/or EFI.

The 36-1 is simple enough.
35 teeth with one missing.

With this tone ring you'll see a rising and a trailing edge from the VR sensor.
This will result with 70 signals to the 'puter per 360 rotation.
AKA every 5.14 degrees of crankshaft position.

No Graph? No Chart?

How are we ever to understand?
No diagram ?

The key is I want to make once that replaces the washer of the front pulley.

Have it cut with three steps..

One will be a small keyway that will sit int he crank, the next step will be the same as the "washer" so it since in the pulley. and last will be the outter ring that sits ON the face of the pulley ( this will be the 36-1 ring ).

That and a simple bracket that that can be made easily as well. So it won't require much fabrication on the part of the person installing the EFI. Also will make it so its the least expensive way to get a ring made to fit.

Your not the only cheap skate on this forum.

What I did was to pick-up a used internal tone ring from a engine core (4.6L First On Race Day).
Price zero banana's

Cut the front snout off a junk scb crankshaft.
Now on to be called a spacer.
Chucked into a lathe to square it up, get the length right and the diameter for a slip fit.

Next step was to wield the tone ring to spacer.
So far still zero banana's

Now we got a slip assy. that will glide into the Opel pulley and easily rotate.
Find TDC, move the ring to align the missing tooth.
Drill set screw.
Install assy.
Adjust the spark timing offset to zero.
Price so for zero Banana's other than a longer pulley bolt.

Yes I can see that and my German customers go out of their way to point it out all of the time.

You used thousands of $$$$ worth of equipment to create a zero banana cost. Sure you are not employed at EDC Metalworxs in Forrest Park ?

Just remember that if you are using a 36 tooth sensor and an optical trigger, you can have problems if a spider builds an egg sac between two of the teeth.

Seems to happen on my minivan every spring.

As far as I know the 36-1 used a VR sensor.
If you want to $hit-chat about optical ..shoot me a PM.
I might be able to set you straight.
