I see there is a place to install magnets on the fan. has anyone ever used this and if so do u drill a hole thru the fan shroud to get the sensor close enough to the magnet?

George, that is one method. The other method I use is to place the magnets in the clutch bell and secure the sensor to the clutch bearing block assembly.

This is a way to make a bracket for a governor sensor that then mounts nicely in the frame.

That's great info mdu6.

Here is the thread I was thinking of with pictures George - https://rc.runryder.com/t660149p1/
It shows the sensor mounted as I described.

So you have options

ok. thanks guys. I was using a back plate sensor and it worked a couple flights then I had a problem with a newly rebuilt ys91sr and the gov stoped working on my skookum 540. so I want to use a traditional sensor to see if the problem is the gyro. since I have the engine out I figure now would be the time to install some magnets

Magnets in the fan
I have the magnets in the fan on my ENV. I carved out a portion of the fan shroud to allow the Futaba sensor to be mounted to the frame. There was one hole there already, just had to drill one more. Much easier to do this method as you are building the model rather than after, but it can be done.

I don't think I have any photos on RR, I think it's on the other site. Pretty simple to do, that's the beauty of the design, many options.

Great choice! The back plate sensors work great! That's what I've used on my ENV for the last 4 years. Hasn't missed a beat.

I have been using back plate sensors for a long time but sometimes the skookum doesn't seem to sense it.
