Ok so here goes. I recently purchases a 95 Explorer Sport in real good condition. 55,000 on a Recent Ford Rebuild and tranny. I'm driving down the highway one day and bang, what sounds like a lifter tap appears. Low and behold it got worse driving back and it turned out to be a Champion plug end came out in the cylinder....bad results. So to make a long story short I rebuild it and putting the motor back in i snapped...you guessed it, the sensor in the post name.
So after 3 days of wrong parts and getting pissed off, I find out that this sensor and assembly in general was only used for a few months and discontinued. Not made anymore and its costly to get one if u can, around 200.00 dollars as u have to buy the whole shaft and assembly not just the sensor. So anyways, to get to my question, is the another shaft from another year that takes the css408 cam sensor that i can use in my truck? Ive got all sorts of people looking for a reasonable used or rebuilt but havent had any luck so far. I have heard of people swapping them but they didnt give any specific info. Any help wopuld be great as I am waiting to do this before assembling the rest of the top end. thanx.
