I found out that Jeff Beck was coming to MKE about 10-12 years ago and the same week, a friend called to ask what I was doing that night. I told him we were going to see Jeff Beck and he hadn't...

That's the reason I have been recommending resistance checks and asking the shop if they have the correct manual & training. Without either, troubleshooting one of these isn't a whole lot of fun.

The .8V number is for using a multi-meter. It's not the actual voltage, but it works to get a ballpark number, so troubleshooting can advance by ruling out the sensor. If it's not seen, the next step...

The sensor needs voltage to create a magnetic field, so it will be able to react when the edges of the gaps come and go with the rotation of the crank. The sensors don't generate voltage/current on...

How many of them actually handled the balls? Who has watched the way they handled the balls? Most of the time, they get it and toss it to someone else after only a couple of seconds and I don't...

If they had a permanent magnet, I would expect to see more output, but they would also not need the bias current. I'll look at the manual to see what the troubleshooting section shows but I remember...

That can't possibly work.

Make sure they have a manual for this engine. If not, and they don't have access/haven't been using some kind of manual, don't pay for all of the time they have taken....

If the engine isn't turning over, whether during crank or actually running, you won't see any output. These sensors ONLY output voltage when the reluctor wheel's gaps cause the sensors to "see" the...

FYI- none of the sensors that thread into the engine get thread tape. The Knock sensor has thread compound, but even using more of that can be too much.

I think it has to do with the electrons banging around in the wire, kind of like tossing a golf ball into a corrugated steel pipe used for water runoff. :D

I would look for a scrapped boat with this system, rather than go to a distributor. The ECM will need to be recalibrated and the Northstar system is a lot better WRT mis-fires.

Apparently, some people seem to think that installing an oil filter or set of lug nuts is part of a contest, to see who can tighten them the most.

I beg to differ.
