As an FYI, if the TruTrac housing isn't machined down to fit the tone ring you won't be able to install or remove the ring gear.
So you have to weld the tone-ring on with the ring gear already installed.
Or have the case of the TruTrac machined down to fit the strip.

If it’s the newer (588) case it is very tough to machine.
The older versions are easy to cut in a lathe.

You can also just cut the tone ring teeth into the housing with an angle grinder. There's lots of meat there, and you don't have to be *super* precise for it to work.

I haven't had good results with that.

SteveMD's had needle bounce, It's mine now.

some might have been from the sensor rubbing against the truetrac and wearing through the plastic, into the copper in the sensor

Yeah, it needs to have more space between metal areas to induce a good signal.

I used the Towery one many moons ago. Can confirm it did not work well.

That’s how experiments go sometimes. And we learned from it. I’m actually surprised someone else hosted that pic.

Worked great for our ABS; possibly the duty cycle is wrong / bad for the 12t speedo?

I think that’s it.
With a 48t wheel (stock) the teeth width and gap width is almost exactly the same (maybe it is the same?)
12t is waaaayyyy different.

Welded teeth on my last one, worked fine. Guy who bought it wanted them ground off before he would buy it. LOL.
