No this sprocket is only used for the magnetic pickup
It has the square teeth so it does just what you described
To tell the whole story this machine came with a small readout for this shaft
however it was "on" all the time- it had a built in non-replaceable 5v lithium battery that went dead after 5 years
of course the manufacturer has the part to replace it for $400+
Since it is always on, how would I know what life I could expect?
Red Lion techs advised to replace it with a similar device that connects to the tractors 12v system- about $150
After reading the manual about 10 times I attempted to program the unit
Everything went well till the 2x speed showed up
Re-programing with 80 pulses vs 40 pulses per revolution seems to make things right
Even the Red Lion techs had never heard of 2 pulses per tooth but by the comments here, that is very possible
Thanks for your help
Still got your drone?
