ok guys my first post. Iam currently building a 98 seville sls that im turbo charging. the question I have concerns crank sensors. the motor I built is a mixture of northstars I had lying around. ok here it goes, the block is a 2002 out of a dts. the heads are 98 with vin 9 cams and springs. due to the fact that the car is a 98 im using old style crank sensors. so I have a 98 crank in the 2002 block which uses the "new" style sensors.so im running the "old style sensors in the 02 block. as far as I can tell the hole depths are the same. however the magnetic tip appears to be contacting the reluctor wheel on the crank. has anyone ever monitored the ac voltage output of these crank sensors? ive modified (ground down) the tips and still no spark or injector pulse. the sensors are generating around 1 volt ac. this seems to be the correct voltage as compaired to a running vehicle. If any one has another test let me know. ps I work as a cadillac tech w about 15 years exp. so ive checked the basics like codes and wiring.
