Machine 4.0 CCK-3R/9381P #0571301183
I've read and checked out sereral conversioned pictured on this site.
I got the general idea and have ordered a pertronics unit.
My problem is when i take the fan and shroud off of my machine there is no
flat plate behind the flywheel to mount the pickup unit.
anybody done this the my type of unit. (vac flo from a 1971 RV?

Thanks Vaughn. I thought I might attach a few images of my 4.0 complete with fan shroud removed, with shroud in place, with shroud removed. Detailed image of flywheel.
I think last image showing two bolts with white lines might be used to mount a piece of
3/4" angle iron for a mounting bracket for the electronic pickup unit. anybody done one similar to this one? ( how do I attach photo's?) Ben

Ben, yes: do show a pic of your CCK with shroud off. I can't imagine there not being a backplate behind the flywheel and rising up to meet the shroud.

I put pics on my own server, then put a link to them here. There are lots of image hosting services (Flickr, Kodak, etc.), just Google for it.

When you have your pic uploaded, copy the URL for it to your clipboard, then in the Compose window of this site (where you type a Reply), look in the Compose window's toolbar for this icon ->
. When you select that icon, a popup will ask for the URL of the picture. Paste it from the clipboard. You'll see that the URL is wrapped in bbCode tags. You can, of course, just type the [img] tags yourself.

Harry will host some of your pics on his server too. Look below the Compose window, way down the page, for a button labelled, "Manage Attachments". Looks like you can upload pics that way, but they probably won't actually show in your post -- everyone will have to actually click on a link to see the pic(s).

Ben got some pictures, posted them to a file hosting site, sent me the link. Any CCK folks around to see if this looks normal?



One more pic, next post (image limit per post = 4).

Vaughn, where does Ben mount his Pertronix? And what did you do with your pics?
I mounted mine just behind the flywheel on the flat face of that bracket that you see just above the oil pressure switch. My magnet went on the back of the flywheel.

The web site that was hosting my pictures took them down without notice, then I had a hard drive disaster. Somewhere I still have the raw pix on the original camera disk. I have been looking...

Thanks for the help with the pictures. I ended up using a length of 3/4 x 3/4
inch angle iron, removed two of the cover bolts under flywheel and replaced them with studs to mount the bracket. I epoxied ( JB weld ) a 1/4 inch flat magnet in one of the empty balance holes in back of the flywheel.
I'll try and get one or two more pictures next week showing final product in place. everything seems to be operating very well, I can switch from
points to electronic and not miss a beat. Same when switching back the other way. I do like the backup nature of this set up.
