Indmar part # 556036

Thought I would post this here. I have in the shop a 98 205 with a LT-1 induction and ignition system. The engine itself is a repop from a builder out of South Florida. Keep in mind I am the third party working on the boat. What it has come down to is that both Crankshaft position sensors have tested out fail, more than likely because of the extreme overheat that the original engine experienced. Indmar does not have replacement sensors as they are now NLA. Talking to Indmar They are trying to procure a replacement parts for this, or set up to update problems such as this. Currently their does not seem to be any one who stocked these parts and to try and match them up at an Auto parts store is proved fruitless. Looking for Indmar part # 556036 (need two). So if any of you other Indmar dealers or MC dealers read this and have them on the shelf please give me a ring I have a home for them.
Any other Ideas are welcome also!
Thank You.

True but if its the only one in the world and the customer is willing to foot the bill, my job we sometimes have to have parts shipped from Japan mostly on cargo ships, makes the customer kinda mad when it takes 3-4 weeks or longer to get parts.

When I installed new main and rod bearings in the 1FZFE in my '93 Land Cruiser, I had to air freight all of them (each bearing is different) from Japan.

Most of my customers don't wanna pay air freight, if it can be had for free standard shipping, hence the slow ride across the pacific ocean.

Thanks for the Aussie connection. Very pricey when one does the currency exchange and shipping.
Will continue to look for Indmar to come with a solution or hopefully a US dealer rat holed a pair.
Thank You again.

That is remotely amusing you guys!! I would make direct contact with them. There is no way it would cost $115 air freight for two of those from Australia to you. More like $25 tops. Should be something like $250 all up if that helps.

found a pair

Found a pair of crank sensors here in the US.
Thanks for the help.
I might buy a couple while in Australia for the Moomba in March just have them on the shelf.

Did you find them as a cross reference GM part? or did it wind up being a Indmar exclusive part?
