Has anyone got any pics of how they have installed the sensor from a TJ pro?

The bracket supplied with the kit is way to short to reach the fan.

Thanks

John

Here is the one I had installed on mine along with the 560 micro , both now on the EVO and put a GV1 on the NT..
You should have had 2 brackets with the sensor , 30 size and 50 plus size ... If you get stuck i will post it to you


This is the sensor for the GV 1 , but its in the same place as the TJ was

Thanks Darren

Have you mounted your sensor bracket on the cooling shroud support arm?

I thought it had to mount on the 2 engine bolts, hence it's to short even with the long one.

Yeah mounted it on the support arm , think with the TJ it was on the inside to get to sensor right underneath

I used the supplied bracket and just bolted it to the top hole of the engine mount. It works OK and has never caused any problems or came loose. Mounting it on the shroud bracket makes it a pain when you want to adjust things.

You saw it fly at the Goole flyin John, it was ok then! (until the auto! )

It flew great, I assume it's all fixed now?

I know you were using a TJ, just couldn't remember how you mounted your sensor. Which side did you mount it?

Hi John,

Yes it's fixed up now, but I haven't had the chance to fly it much.

The sensor is mounted the same side as the needle, just like Darren's.. But I was a lazy git and just stuck it on the top hole... seems to work ok..

In fact I have applied the same idea to my GV1 sensor on the Mill2. I hate that crappy plastic case on the sensor which always breaks.. so I salvaged the electronics out of the plastic and mounted it on a TJ bracket using the same method as for the TJ.. works a treat and no more bull**** with breaking GV1 sensor casing- that is a total pain in the backside

Made a new bracket out of carbon from the angle carbon that Revolution's sell, very rigid. Less chance of the support shaking and giving possible false readings !!

HI What I did with mine is bolt the two mounts together and then bolt them to the engine in the usual way. This setup works fine also.

Regards

Andy
