My first 3D printed part from the new 3D printer. It is printed in ABS plastic and contains one magnet and one dummy washer to give one pulse per rev of the driveshaft.

Since the trans is converted to drive a mechanical speedo, a speed signal for the ECU
was needed. The stock VSS sent a signal to the Astro gaugecluster where it was converted in to 2000 pulse per mile.

This collar contains one magnet that gives the ECU approx 2700 ppm which is close enough to get the converter lockup to work ok, and to enable highway mode for the ECU.

Nice job! Does the part work as designed? It's cool to see a useful part made with the 3D printer to solve a problem. Thanks for the update!

Hi Gorjo,

I've just come across your posts, I didn't know they sold chevys in Sweden back in the 60's!

I'm looking forward to reading about your car in more detail, did I read something about Volvo parts somewhere?

The magnetic collar works great, I will be interesting to see if it will last in that
environment.

Nice to see that someone reads my posts!
American cars have always been popular in Sweden, and the carhobby is widespread
Check out bigmeet.com/eng/
Our long dark winters means that there are plenty of time to restore or modify cars and
the short summer time is fullt booked with car shows.

And of course we tend to use Volvo parts, they are usually well made and readily available :-)
Right now I am working to attach chevy boltpattern wheels to the Volvo spindles.
I will post some more info on that shortly.
