Post  Larry T on July 9th 2012, 9:07 pm

As long as the mandrel also assist in locating the CT and bolts through it you should be fine.

On the MSD 8544 BBF trigger kit, the trigger wheel has multiple patterns that will bolt to either Ford or Chevy patterns. The problem that you may encounter is not the bolt pattern, but the provision for centering the trigger wheel and drive mandrel.
I do not have a Motorsport balancer here for reference, but if the wheel has a register that locates the center, it will be fine.
In many cases, a custom adapter ring is needed to make this all work. I have made a few for fellow forum racers. The ring will center the drive mandrel, trigger wheel and any pulleys accurately to the center register of the balancer. Moroso makes more than one drive mandrel, so there are variations there too.
If you are starting from scratch and use a motor plate, you may consider using a MSD 8620 BBC trigger kit. It bolts directly to the BBC type balancer and should accept most BBC type mandrels that bolt on. The transducer mount arm will be bolted to the motor plate.
The MSD 8544 Ford kit has a transducer arm that uses the factory Ford mounting and will fit either side of the engine.
If you need any help with this, just call 678-458-2033. I am an MSD dealer, and can fabricate anything else you need to make this all work.
Thanks,
