    Installation Procedure

    Important: When replacing the CKP sensor with a new sensor or reinstalling the original sensor, use the following recommended procedures:
    • Ensure that the CKP sensor bore is completely free of any foreign material, such as old O-ring, dirt, burrs, etc.
    • Ensure that the flange on the CKP sensor bore is not damaged.
    • Clean all the mounting surfaces before re-installing any components.
    • Inspect the CKP sensor and replace the sensor if any of the following conditions are present:
    - The bracket is damaged.
    - The bottom of the brass housing exhibits any damage.
    - Never install a sensor that has been dropped.
    • Lubricate the O-ring on the sensor with clean engine oil prior to installing the sensor .
    • Inspect all the connectors for any damaged terminals.

    1. Install and fully seat the CKP sensor (2) into the engine block.
    Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure.

    I need to attach my battery cables... please help


    There are two types of batteries in use today. Top terminal type is found on top of the battery normaly found in older cars. These are metal posts that on the battery and the cable terminals has basically a metal clamp that fits over the battery posts and is tightened to create a good contact. To remove the terminal end from the post loosen the nut on the bolt and insert a good size screw driver into the clamp so as to wedge it open and free it from the battery. Trying to pry the clamp up off the post could easily damage the battery. The least amount of force applied to the battery post the better. There is actualy a puller made for this very purpose and can be found at most auto parts stores.
    The side terminals are, as the name indicates, are located on the side of the battery. Unlike the post on a top terminal battery there are two threaded bolt holes on the upper side where the cable eye terminals are attached. This only requires the removal of the bolt with the proper size wench.
    In both cases the other end of the negative cable is normaly attached to the engine block for a ground. You just have to loosen the attaching fastener and replace the cable end. The positive end in most cases is attached to the starter but just follow the cable to it's attaching point and remove the fastener and replace the cable. It always advisable to coat the terminal ends with and electrical sealer made just for this purpose that can be purchased at any auto parts store.
