Pickled Cabbage and Hall Sensor

The pickled cabbage that I started just last Thursday came out decent. Not quite as tasty as the real sauerkraut that I made which "aged" for over a month but it's decent enough. The recipe labeled it as "Russian Sauerkraut" but I find the taste a little closer to kimchi without the peppers. The post had said to just leave it in the fridge but I figured that most people in the house wouldn't think much of the smell. So I went ahead and hot water canned it. I had plenty of pint bottles lying around since I used to pressure can salmon and razor clams.

The modest sized giant cabbage that I used ended up making 6 pints of pickled cabbage.

I removed the round cover over the hall sensor and the interrupter. Everything is solidly in place but when I removed the cover, about 200ml of water poured out. Not good. I then disconnected the cable to the hall sensor and verified that there was battery voltage across the red and black leads. I then connected a test lead to the green trigger wire and touched it to ground. I got a nice healthy spark from the plugs. I think that the hall sensor had failed again. It was replaced by the previous owner at about 18k km. Now the rig has 40k km.

The sauerkraut looks pretty tasty. Would you make it that way again?

It was simple and quick but I'm not sure how the canning process changed the texture or taste. At least not yet...

So I know you'll be sealing that front cover now and probably adding drain holes.

Question is, still under warranty? The major intake source for water is the hole on top of the cover where the wires route in.

Nope, no longer under warranty. Which is why I'm considering the PA option...

Having used the PA option, it's great but very affected by moisture.....once that optical sensor gets wet or "moist"....you have issues.

Oh, and raceway routed the cables initially so that they acted as a water path for incoming rain....make sure you re-route that cable and intro a loop.

Oh, and timing lights become useless with the P/A option. But, very easy to set the timing on it. More to follow if you go this route. Note, I have a ducati ignition system from my 2011 days.....shall I look to see if it's got the hall sensor?
