The sensor mounts on a bracket. I've done some searching, and some come on a bracket, and some the bracket is extra.

Odd...my year (basically same sensor I assume) the sensor is all one piece with the mounting tabs.

My sensor is on a bracket that can be adjusted, so I'll have to do some trial and error to make sure it doesn't hit the rings. Do you think it is at all likely that one that comes on a bracket will be in the right spot?

My Chilton'* repair manual (88-93) says to use an alignment tool (j-37089) when replacing the crankshaft sensor. I wonder if any of the auto parts stores loan them out.

When I did the '87 years ago, I used a matchbook cover as a spacer when aligning it. I had to pull the HB back off later, as it had gone bad and the spacing seemed right where it should have been. It was a bit of a PITA to get it in there, but it worked out well. My "oldies" memory is too fuzzy on it to recall if there was a bracket or not.

Got er in. There was a brief scraping after I started it, but it went away after a second. Don't know if it was ring to sensor or crank to bracket that is slightly different than the original... anyway, all good so far.

Oh yeah, the sensor was clean as a whistle with no signs of scraping the rings.
