Katech swapped my 24x on and it has worked fine. It wasn't expensive either.

Glad it worked out for you. It is advised that you tig weld the reluctor onto the crank with a few small tacks. Once removed and pressed on again they have been known to shift during use. Most guys also add a couple tack welds to the two plate halves to keep everything perfectly in place. Gewgull search LS reluctor Wheel Slip for pics and articles

This is the aliment tools I need to do the installation, you ses the aliment tools and the 10inch flat bare what to hold a pressure on the tools and relucteur for a minute or tow just after it was side on. That save my hand from the heat the time the wheel fully set on the cranks. No wheeldiing to hold it in place for me, 0.008 of press fit sound like plenty to hold the relucteur in place safely. Time will tell.

I grease that part of the crank to be sure my tools slide nicely on the crank, the fit was tight 0.005 if my memory was right at room temp.

So roughly, how long would you have to apply heat from a propane torch to remove the 58x reluctor wheel? A minute?

Thanks

The propane torch is not ideal to heat up the reluctor, I squiz 2 flat screw driver between the reluctor and the crank balancer. I heat up the reluctor for 3 to 5 min and nothing was letting go so I hammer it and it start mooving so I keep hammered on it until it let go. My point is the propane torch do not put heat fast anuff in the reluctor and the crank expand to. But it work.

No, propane torch is not hot enough. Mapp gas, also available in small bottle is. Best and easiest to use acetelyn torch if you have access to one.
