Default SuperMiata Harmonic Balancer & Trigger wheel, install questions

A question I would like to pose to anyone who has installed one of these..

I bought the SuperMiata Harmonic Dampers and the 36-1 Trigger Wheel, which way do I install these? The trigger wheel appears to be reversable, and I'd rather not have my TDC timing off.. lol

I called Emilio and left a VM, but it's the weekend so if anyone has an answer, that would be awesome.

Look closer - two of the boltholes on the wheel are indexed differently so you can't bolt it on backwards. Just try it until you get all 8 holes lined up.

Success! Thanks! However I have a bit of an issue, did the 95 come with the Hall Sensor to read the crank trigger wheel..? I know I worked on an engine with it, but it might not be mine, or I removed it because there was no connector.. Since my 97 had it, I know the ECU can support it, I just need to run the wiring.

96-97 had a VR sensor, 99-05 had a 3-wire hall sensor. Not sure if the 95 has the tapped hole for the sensor.

Not to thread jack but what is the benefit of this trigger wheel? I've seen it mentioned multiple times so I am curious.

Supposedly much more accurate timing control because the amount of teeth gives you a lot more resolution to play with.

^This, more accurate timing means less likely to have it be slightly off and be more advanced/retarded than it really is.

It bolts to the oil pump doesnt it? So they all should have it.
