It was a little later setup that actually used the 2 crank sensors but it is worth looking at
Hey thats right. They did use 2 crank sensors on the one design. Funny thing, the Mc parts stores stock the one that is easy to change, its not the one that fails either.LOL Its allways the one behind the balancer that fails. I guess they sell the easy one for the DIY guys. Then they bring it to the shop for you and me.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
