That way, you'd pick up a healthier spark in the normal operating range. Unless, of course, you've already taken that into account when you selected 32 initially.

My spark table range is from 10deg to 55deg, the middle of that range is 32.5deg, therefore I set it at 32deg. +/- 24 degrees from that covered the table, anything much away from 32 would not have.

Here's some pics of whats left of the distributor, machined it down to the upper bushing then made a billet cap, filled it with grease and pressed it on, lots of room in the front of the engine now. Next up is fitting the coils on the valve covers, tack welding the standoffs in place then final weld, paint, some wiring and I'm ready to fire it up with the LS2 coils.

Finished up the passenger side, welded the standoffs on the valve covers, repainted them and then cut the plug wires to length and assembled. Drivers side has a few obstacles so it may take a bit longer. Those headers are in some sorry need of a coating I'd say

Awesome workmanship. All of your updates have motivated me to get back into my megasquirt project.

Thanks, glad your getting back to yours post up some pics when you get into it, would like to see it.

Buckled down tonight and finished the drivers side, had to angle the back coil to clear the brake booster, wasn't a big deal. Finish up the wiring tomorrow and she should be ready to fire back up Friday if all goes well.

Thank you for the compliments Rob. It is a very rewarding project and a great way to learn a bunch of cool stuff, patience and lots of reading is the key.

Video

Ok, here's my first attemp at youtube videos

It was taken with my smartphone and the audio sounds bad, it really doesn't sound like a diesel like it seems in the video, actually has a nice throaty sound to it in person.

Also you'll notice it go pretty lean when I get on the gas, I haven't turned on the acceleration enrichments yet.

I do not have the talents, skills or resources to pull something like that off.
I am very impressed and even jealous some.
What advice would give to a complete novice that does not machining resources that you have available?

My jealously wears off quickly, for my long term plans are for things that clatter and are smokey! <evil grin>

If you really wanted to do this I would suggest to just start doing it, the only way to learn is to get into it, ask questions, make mistakes and figure it out along the way. The MS forums are a huge help along with all the manuals there. As for the machining, I really didn't need to change the distributor, it could have been left alone, I just did it because I can. The rest of the stuff (trigger wheel, sensors, mounting plates, etc.) can be bought online or made with minimal tools if necessary.

Got one of those rare nice days up here in NW today, had to take her out for a cruise, running sweet with the new coil setup. I really should be working on the roll cage instead of out cruizin around

Roll cage?.. but topless your center of gravity looks so low!


I am just getting started on a similar project on my `79 J10. I am installing MegaSquirt2 Multi-Port with EDIS. I had not considered Coil on Plug, but now that I have seen your rig I may not be able to stop it from happening. That looks impressive.

I also like the way your reluctor wheel installation turned out in the photos. I have been considering the same installation, behind the balancer. I had hoped to keep the hall sensor as far away from any shredded v-belt debris as possible.

On the other hand, I have been concerned about modifying the balancing characteristics of the balancer. Reading about your troubles with wheel/timing cover interference now makes me more inclined to move the reluctor wheel to the forward side of the balancer.

Great job on the install. I have an MS I that was on my scout 800 for a few years that I migrated to the Buick 350 in my 69' Gladiator last year. Guess I need to step it up and add the ignition side after seeing your setup.

Thumbs up Thanks!

Just wanted to say a thank you for posting this up!

I've finally started back into assembling my MS2 and reading your post here & on the MS forum have me helped a great deal.

Since my setup is (vaguely) similar to yours, I noticed a couple of issues that would come up for me eventually. (Low impedance inj, constant baro correction {I live at ~5000ft and enjoy driving both up & down hill. })

Did you end up running a cam sensor or not? From reading through the entire thread it doesn't seem like it but I was just curious.

I would feel bad about bumping such an old thread but since it's awesome & stickied, I'm okay.

I haven't been on the site in quite a while, sorry about the late repsonse. I am not running a cam sensor, it's wasted spark cop with a 48-1 crank sensor.
