Now that I have finished doing the manifold brackets GB, I am going to see how much interest there is in these, had a couple of people PM me for them. I am not 100% what these were for, obviously I know they were to blank the end of the cam off where the dizzy used to be attached. So the bit I am unsure of was if its for people who have lost the dizzy setup and replaced it with wasted spark?????

I am thinking around the £20 mark, maybe £22 with postage

List:-

agw_01
ravinder
rovermadman4285

Here's a few piccies

Not done any flat ones before. Is this to do with some people grinding the bit off the cam? I vaguely remember something about that.

Yeah the cam sensor and rotor arm bungs pull out with a bearing puller, not to mention people on wasted spark from factory might just want a bit of bling.

Yup basically Steb, you made that up for me - it is just a end cap to blank of the dizzy if you have converted to wasted spark but don't want to swap your cams or remove the dizzy drive from the end of the shaft.

The idea behind this was I swapped from dizzy MEMS to an Emerald K3 configured for wasted spark. I didn't want to remove the dizzy drive from the cam as I wanted to be able to swap back to the dizzy setup if I couldn't get a working map on the Emerald to drive the car to a rolling road - or if there was a problem it was simple to swap the engine loom and coil and bolt the distributer back on. So it would suit anybody else doing the same thing - or if you are running wasted spark MEMS and fitting some cams from a dizzy engine and cba to get the end bit out, or just want to retain the option of swapping cams.

Quality piece of kit needless to say - knocked up from a couple of dodgy photos with a sketch done in MS paint :sorry: :lol: - testament to the stebmiesters uber milling skillz. :wink: :thumbup:

Will it fit onto a Nasp T series engine or do I need something else to be able to get hold of one of these? I'm interested but will it be expensive to change from a dizzy to a wasted spark on a 2.0 nasp engine?

Any help to a newbie would be good.

think agw_01 is gonna sort some dimensions for cam sensor bungs. I gather the flat plate for the dizzy cap would be like what i have there but flat with just them 2 holes. Would be good if somebody can measure the outside diameter of a dizzy cap, gonna modify the design slightly, then i can have the 2 holes coming out as lugs and the outer diameter a bit smaller. Any chance somebody?

Then I will do some flat plates too for people wanting them!

I dont suppose you could make one up but shallower? I cut off the end of my crankshaft and dont have room for a full depth due to the location of my coil
