My Electromotive has a simular wheel with 72 teeth. One tooth is misssing 
as reference pt. I had to machine the crank pulley to attach it in 
correct position relative to the trigger. They clame more accurate firing 
at high RPM do to absence of belt slack. The trigger also required custom 
bracket. My instalation was on Toyota which has even less space around 
crank pulley. It was tight. I also had to protect it from rally debri 
with urethane  covers.
