Chinese/Russian LTR&LT1 Replacement Crank Position Sensors (CPS)

If you have an LTR or LT1, you may have heard that Indmar has stopped producing crank position sensors for the crank fire ignition system these engines use. Without the sensor, the ignition module will not produce spark. I recently had a sensor go bad, and needed a replacement, so after following these two threads:

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=64348
http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=58122

I ended up ordering a new set of CPS sensors from here:

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/prod...575163060.html

After 4 weeks, they have arrived. The problem is, my boat is at the upholstery shop, and I can't test these new sensors. They look identical to the set that was in the boat. Is anyone interested in buying a pair from me (at cost+shipping) to test? If they work, this will be the cheapest solution to the issue (about $15 for a set of 2). If they don't work, you can have your money back. I just want to see if these work as soon as possible so I can try to find another solution before the season starts. Otherwise, I'll post up whether they work in a couple months. Here are what the sensors I purchased look like:

I hope they work! It's insane the amount people are trying to charge for the remaining stock of the indmar version.

Good news!!! I sent a set of sensors to Wiskeyriver and he says they worked in his 99 LTR. When I get mine installed I'll post up the results, but it seems we have found a source for the elusive CPS sensor.

Good news everyone, I took willg up on his request/offer to try the sensors for him and they work fine. I installed the sensors that he ordered in my 1999 LTR and it fired right up! Thanks willg for the leg work in getting these sensors.

haha Will beat me to it......
