Lead Bending Tool

This inexpensive lead bending tool will come in very handy when building up your MegaSquirt kit or any electronics kit. It helps you to quickly bend the leads of 1/4 and 1/2 watt resistors, diodes, capacitors, inductors, etc to the exact measurements you need to be able to drop them into the PCB. The tool is designed with radiused edges to prevent unnecessary stress on the component leads when bending them. This can help with the longevity of the assembled unit as the leads are less likely to break later and are less vibration sensitive.

Note: All DIYAutoTune.com kits are labeled with the appropriate spacing for the leads to be bent to. This is the blue number in the bottom left of the label. See the label key below for more information.

This lead bender can be used to bend the majority of the Megasquirt ECU parts, however the components marked .2″ and .3″ will need to be bent using a pair of needle nose pliers in a similar manner to how you use the lead bending tool. Just hold the component with your thumb against the jaw of the needle nose pliers and bend the leads around the jaw. Do this close to the tip of the pliers for .2″ components, and a little further down where the jaw is wider for .3″ components.

    Working well for Traction Control and VSS. Going to try for Crank signal now.I have 2 of these already on the vehicle. One at the rear end pinion for VSS1 running on a 4 magnet wheel and one on the front hub reading the heads of the lug studs (6 lugs). Both are working well. I am going to try one on the front of the crank with a 36-1 wheel. I bought 2, one to keep as a spare, since I now have 3 on the vehicle.

    Hall Effect Crankshaft Position SensorI bought this item, it's not dirt cheap to me. But, I purchased it. Using it with ms2 extra. Had to do few steps, solder few wires to make it work. Instructions online available step by step. It was easy enough and the felling was rewarding that I did it. The sensor works beautifully, it does the job very nicely, so far I have no complains. Would say much sharper than the pickup sensor for sure. (Project: rotary engine Rx7) thanks diyautotune.
