Ok, man, I made it home. I'll have the bracket out to you in the A.M. I'll also type instructions on how to set the bracket so that you don't mess up your sensors, much like someone I know did. Sorry, I break every sensor that I get my hands on. I should buy them in bulk.

Ok, man, my printer didn't want to work, so I'll give you instructions here. First remove the old bracket and sensors. Next find a washer that is 0.8mm wide. Install bracket with the bolts snug, but where the bracket will move. Not freely, but where you might have to lightly tap it to get it to move. Glue washer on the end of a sensor. Install sensor in the RPM sensor hole. tighten the sensor down snugly. now, tap the bracket untill the washer is resting on the starter ring teeth. Tighten bracket bolts. remove sensor, remove washer from sensor. Clean the glue off of the end of the sensor. Install both sensors and you're ready to go.

It's very important that the washer be at least 0.8mm. If you get the sensor too close to the tuning stuff, you can sheer you ref. pin and/or break your sensor. Sheered ref. pin really sux.

How do you replace a sheared reference sensor? New flywheel?

which is the one closest to the engine - that sensor was ok (no marks on it) but the back one was the one that was worn away?

I drilled it out, and taped it to a fine thread short bolt. A steel bolt. Actually, it was a phillips head about the same diameter of the pin. A little loc tite red and I was back in business.

The one towards the rear of the car is the speed sensor, it counts the teeth on the starter ring. Get the sensor too close and it's like huge rasp whirling at 900 + RPM. You're lucky to get one and not the other. Are you SURE that your pin hasn't been sheered off?

looks like lady luck is on my side today - found the head of the screw still intact on the flywheel for the tdc sensor - I was worried about that. Anyway - picking up a new sensor at zims tomorrow and hopefully be driving the beast shortly after!
