Can the AU's timing cover work with an EF cam angle sensor and harmonic balancer, or are AU items needed, or does the timing cover need to be swapped to run an AU engine in an EF?

Timing cover has nothing to do with the EF Cam angle sensor.

I think your talking about the Crank angle sensor.
The AU timing cover Will accomodate the EF Sensor.

Correct, I was talking about the crank angle sensor lol. Good to know it will be apples.

Yes the crank sensor works just fine, the AU cam sensor in the timing cover is a different story.
I suspect that the AU sensor is not compatable with the EF ECU as the EF is 50% on and 50% off where I suspect the AU is single a pulse at TDC on power stroke.

They are both the same.... I have use an AU sensor in a EF before....
The AU harmonic balancer has the 50/50 pulse too...

AU Harmonic Balance and an EF Balancer work the same.

I am talking about the Cam sensor not the Crank.

is that the one where the dizzy hole is???

AU is just a cover for the hole.... Use the EF one in a EF and put that in the AU Motor.

Correct however its not just a cover it's main purpose is to provide drive for the oil pump. The AU sensor is relocated to be inside the timing case.
