I sent the link to Indmar-enginenut so hopefully they well check them out as well.

I tried to figure out what Lada they came from, but had no luck. Do you have any idea? Maybe that would make it easier to find a cross-reference that doesn't need to ship from china.

SikeCo is the company that makes it - the LADA was the only application - the I could find.

search LADA under Crank sensors.. http://www.sikeco.com/search.asp

Has anyone just tried straight up automotive sensors?

automotive sensors would work (I believe) if you got the right ones and had an oscilloscope.

I read that you received an additional set of sensors from Bruce. What are Bruce's thoughts on the change in resistance?

Bruce just said that all the sensors he gets are around the ~650 area. Per the Indmar troubleshooting guide they should all be around the 800 Ohm mark. Indmar has said though that you can use sensors that are low in resistance as long as you get the proper voltage from them.

if the crank sensors are in the 650 area a 150ohm resistor will bring it up to 800 - just a mod to the harness would be needed - no?

the bigger problem is the 0 pulse voltage the sensors are giving off

That is a problem - are they the exact same length as the originals?

I hope Bruce does not have a batch of bad ones.

He said he plugged the second set into his engine before sending to me and everything worked so I am not sure what is going on...
