Knock Sensor is inbetween cly 5-6 on the passenger side.
You can just remove the pins from the EF plug, and stick them into the AU knock sensor.
heat shrink it and your done.

You'll prolly have pinging with normal fuel too as I've encountered

With the cam angle sensor, once you have No1 piston at TDC and you locate the pin in the sensor it can be put at any location as it will always be at TDC. The lead will reach at a pinch to fit the sensor if you use the AU clamp. As for the knock sensor I would recommend drilling and tapping the block to use the EF sensor.

TDC = Top Dead Centre

Piston #1 is at the very top & you must be very careful that it is on the compression stroke & not on the exhaust stroke since the piston makes 2 cycles per power output.

ok well the sump is off atm but when i get it back round i can then work on the sycronizer.. whats the easiest way to do it.. or should i get my uncles mate thats a mechanic to do it for me.. is it a hard job? as i have no idea what the pin in the sensor is.. i have the EF blown motor i could probably test on to do a practice run..

from what ive read if i take all the spark plugs out... then put my finger in the cyl one hole.. then as i rotate the harmonic balances i will feel pressure on my finger... while the pressure is still on my finger and then when the hole on the cam angle sensor is lined up... im at TDC? then i just have to do what?

Buy a workshop manual. You will find it worth every cent.
