    It's a fully tunable crank fired distributor-less ignition system. And it's going to rock.

    I have to say that cutting the trigger ring teeth directly into the pulley turned out even better than I was expecting. I was worried they might be too thin but they're not at all.

    Isnt an AC delete Accord pretty rare?

    Cygnus that pulley is awesome, brilliant as usual!

    Dave this is a very good move on your part, Im excited how this will improve your drivability with radical carbs.

    Re: ItzDave's Megajolt thread!

    what exactly is this supposed to archive with the removal of the distributor?
    might be a little off track but if i remove ac on my car would i gain any mpg?

    Re: ItzDave's Megajolt thread!

    barely. only mainly by reducing the weight. by removing this dizzy, i get a crank-fired, fully tunable ignition.

    Good luck with the conversion Dave. I'm jealous.

    Cygnus, do you have any ideas for those of us who want to do EDIS, but like A/C very much?

    i guess you could have the trigger wheel mounted elsewhere, but i dunno for sure...

    Re: ItzDave's Megajolt thread!

    Might be able to sandwich a sensor bracket between the AC pump and the block somehow...? Might need a little longer AC belt to go with it...

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    I've pondered over the AC problem for many hours and I have yet to come up with a reasonable way to do the EDIS conversion without removing the AC. Probably the next best option would be to remove the power steering and bolt a trigger ring to the pulley where the PS groove would normally be. You would have to find another place to mount the crank sensor but that's not as difficult a problem as getting the trigger ring on the pulley. If you want to keep AC and PS it gets much harder. I suppose it *might* be possible to put a trigger ring on the back of the pulley if you didn't mind hacking up the timing cover. I think it would probably interfere with the timing belt though.

    The transmission side is a possibility, maybe modify the flywheel by cutting teeth into it. Obviously you would have to take the trans off to do the conversion, but this option has some potential. The sensor could maybe go somewhere near the little window in the bell housing for checking the timing. A different shape sensor would likely be needed. Hmmm. Yeah. This method would be more work but maybe not too bad. I would need a stock flywheel and an A20 transmission for development though. My trans is the smaller version that came on the 1.8L 2g 'ludes. The guts are all A20 compatible but the bell housing is different.
    I'll definitely consider this one more.


    Oh, and Turabaka, if you happen to read this, I'll PM you when I get home from work.

    Re: ItzDave's Megajolt thread!

    I do want to keep both. I was thinking of mounting the ring gear over the PS pulley and then machining down the PS pump bracket to run inline with the A/C pulley. You could keep both by putting a little larger pulley on the pump and running a longer belt to drive both the pump and compressor at the same time. It seems pretty do-able to me. What do you think?

    Sorry for the threadjack Dave.

    Re: ItzDave's Megajolt thread!

    OMG. I'm such a fool. The answer is obvious. Do a serpentine conversion. That will give all kinds of room to mount ring gears. There should be at least 15 billion pulley options at the junkyard right now. That would make changing fan belts easy as well as tightening them properly. Mounting the tensioner would need some thought, but everything else should be plug and play. What do you think?

    Sorry for the continued threadjack.
