 Well it's been awhile since I have been on this forum. One thing that I have seen from time to time is someone suggesting going edis with the 22RE and mega squirt. If you are new and don't know what edis is in short it replaces the distributor with a crank triggered ignition system that is superior in accuracy. The best way I can describe it is like this - a distributor is like measuring with a ruler. Edis is like measuring with a micrometer.  Few have done it on the 22RE . and no one makes a kit for it.

 I am hoping to change that .

I have been using this last year to tool up and R&D. I have some pics of the prototype. I will post them soon.  I will also try to keep updating this thread as much as possible.

I got some more done this weekend . After some assembly I discovered I needed to make some adjustments though so the pics aren't the latest. However I will be doing some anodizing soon.  I am thinking a nice red will be perfect. Since its my first time anodizing I will have to test on some scrap aluminum first.
here are some more pics of my progress

Wow the last few weeks have been hot and really humid here in Florida. I have been sidetracked trying to beat the heat. Hopefully I will be back on track soon . I am looking forward to trying my hand at aluminum anodizing. YouTube has a plethora of videos on it.

Well I have done a few runs of anodizing and with good results . I have come to the conclusion that a parts tumbler would come in handy to expedite matters so I am building one with 5 gallon buckets . I will have videos up on YouTube soon showing my earlier anodizing runs and construction of the rotary parts tumbler. I will post links to the videos as soon as their done.

The bracket I built for my trigger wheel is using the same bolts that yours does.  It's worked great for me for almost 4 years now.  I skipped the EDIS setup and went straight to a custom wasted spark setup which is similar, but only uses one coil pack unit.

Hi litneon . Glad yours is working good . When I was doing mock up on my truck those bolt holes were the only location that made sense . I didn't want to mount the trigger wheel at the end of the crank damper. I had considered using a Hall effect sensor and having the megasquirt handling the tooth counting but I wanted my setup to be compatible with megajolt as well.I am thinking of making a bracket that uses the hall sensor instead but that will be down the road.  Grin

 WOW editing videos takes forever. I just finished a slide show of the parts tumbler construction. I will have the videos for the anodizing and the tumbler up soon. Until  then check this out. https://youtu.be/Thdh4Nj5uxQ

 I figured I would post some early video of what would be the bracket mocked up and firing the plugs. It's just a cylinder block with the crank and the balancer with the trigger wheel. As I said early video. Enjoy . https://youtu.be/QBdIqo04V9c

 WOW does time fly when you have half a million things going on at once . Between work and the usual chores my free time went to zero. I am Hoping to get back into the edis project beginning Jan. 2017. I finally got some time to edit my video of anodizing. although I'm not showing the conversion brackets in this video it will give you an idea of what is involved.

Well it's official I just mailed my first bracket to its new home in Canada. I wish it's new owner best of luck and hope his project goes well. It's a great way to finish off this year. Next year I start making full bracket kits.

I do have a question for anyone reading this post.
What color would you want to see the bracket anodized in?

I figured I will start with the most popular color .
 The choices are -
Black
Red
Green
Blue
Violet 3D
Or clear anodize

Honestly, black will be the most universal color.  That or clear.

Thanks for the reply litneon I was surprised not getting any replies or opinions whatsoever. I know it's really slow on this forum this time of the year . But WOW.

I'm not complaining, because there is a wealth of knowledge here, but it's always slow...  Haha!

Happy New Year!
