Is it the wore that will not fit. You can use a soldered on wire and some shrinkwrap to move it around to the left or rigth so you can run the wire back behind the headers. I am assueming the sensor will fit them the wire cant hook up casue the headers are in the way.

malc The motor I posted is in my 86 Camaro, Iīm using Hedman Hedders.



Hedman Y pipe into a Flowmaster 3", single driverīs side outlet.



My knock sensor went with the computer when I chucked it out,
but there was plenty of space for it.

malc They must be some pretty tight headers to prevent the use of the knock sensor. Is there the same issue on the other side of the block because there is a drain plug opposite the knock sensor, maybe you could fit it there ?



Just about visible.

Yes it does you need it in the proper location. In other places the engines normal internal nosie can trip the sensor and rob you of power.

It is oem or after market system. You may be able to find some cars that had them in different place maybe check where there at on then vette with the headers they have.

You can change the sensor type sometimes and be ok look and see if a low profile sensor is available or different headers. Some times you can modify the sensor or headers to work with it. If you only need a little room to make it fit. Smack the header with a hammer and put a dent in it so it can fit. Certianly not a perfect solution.

back on track...
i have the ramjet 350 in my truck, i relocated the knock sensor from the water jacket to a hole over the oil filter for header clearance.
i had to drill and tap the hole for 1/4 npt (pipe thread), it has worked well for 15000 miles.
the ramjet manual recommended against relocating the knock sensor.
but the research i did back then indicated a lot of guys had done this same thing.

I love that era, I built a 67 Firebird with the slapper bars and just the right amount of rear end lift to give the car that aggressive stance...and that was back in the era, I rolled the rear leafs, at that time I didn't trust air shocks...1974...still love the looks.

Beautiful job on the car...takes me back.
Thanks

There is an "E" in Chevrolet but no "A". There are two "A's" in Camaro, but no "E".
