Installing a trigger wheel can be quite a difficult and complex process. If you don’t have a clue what you are doing then you are setting yourself up for a recipe for disaster if you do not do your research. If you don’t have a clue where to start, then you need to make sure that you thoroughly research trigger wheels and gain a comprehensive understanding on how to install them, not only for safety purposes, but also because you don’t want to do more harm than good. If you are still unsure after reading through the following information then you should contact a professional who will do it for you, or give you advice.
To start with, there are a few things that you are going to need in order to be able to install your new trigger wheel correctly. This first, of course, is the trigger wheel itself. If you don’t have one of these then you are going to get stuck very early on in the process. The next thing that you will need to have to hand is four trigger wheel spacers that should have come with your new trigger wheel when you originally bought it. As well as these two things, you are going to need a series of bolts and washers, again these should have been provided when you bought the trigger wheel, and the instruction manual will tell you which ones that you need to use. You will probably need an electric drill at some point too.
The price that you should expect to have to pay for a new trigger wheel will vary greatly, depending on retailer and manufacturer. There are many options for those on a tight budget, so the cost shouldn’t be an issue in most cases. One that you may want to take a look at is the Accufab 4.6L/5.4L Ford Billet Trigger Wheel. This one is very affordable at one hundred dollars, so it will be available to many people. The product description claims that most trigger wheels that are made out of powdered metal are prone to fail at high speeds, so their trigger wheel is higher quality.
A much cheaper option is the Electromotive 60-2 Trigger Wheel. The anodized material makes it very strong. The product description for this trigger wheel on most websites does not make it very clear what features that this trigger wheel has to offer, except for the fact that it is strong. Although there is not much of a description, this trigger wheel is only thirty nine dollars, so it is much more affordable than the one mentioned above.
If you are considering purchasing a new trigger wheel then there are many things that you need to keep in mind. Firstly, you should make sure that the retailer with which you are buying your trigger wheel from, is a reputable one. You really can’t be too safe when it comes to buying such items. Secondly, you need to make sure that you are not paying a huge price for something that really isn’t worth the tag.
When it comes to installing a trigger wheel yourself, you need to be careful. Most people would advise you to go straight to a professional unless you have a lot of knowledge on the subject. Taking the trigger wheel to a professional is probably the best installation option, but if you really insist on doing it yourself, then there are a couple of things that you should do. Read a lot of information online about installing a trigger wheel, and if possible, try and watch more than one video that demonstrates how to do it.
