A rivet a spanner and TDC!

Rotate the device till you can see a spot on the side to put in a nail/rivet/drill bit or whatever.
make sure the engines on TDC (compression stroke).
Press and rotate in.
Tighten.
Remove nail.
Install connector.

Bobs ya sis.

Check online, they are about $130. Install is the same as installing a dizzy. Now that may or may not help you, LOL.

cheers

It's located on the inlet side of the engine near the front. (where the distributor would sit)

When I ordered a replacement they only sent the actual top "cap" which has the sensor mounted in it. This can easily be removed with the body of the unit still in - two 7mm bolts I think. It is easier if you remove the snorkel for the air box.

This worked for me BTW.

If you want to remove the whole thing shaft and all then you need to unbolt and remove the bracket that holds it in which is 1 bolt only. Then follow what Krytox said.

Where are you sourcing this from? I tried Ford and Bosch, and they both said they don't sell/make them anymore.
