Yup

If you pull the tire and the rear of the two side splash shields in the wheel well.. the sensor is right on the back of the motor.

Yes, Bill told me how to do this a few weeks ago when i was working on my HB, it is so easy its not even funny, I could do it again in 10 minutes.

Side note, I seen someone write buy a delco, I just bought a local auto parts store replacement, is there any advantage to the delco???

Only difference I have found is price.

On certain items.. you can't beat original equipment. Most other parts.. you can't compete with the parts store price.

well I got a delco one installed to day working good I didn't even have to install it. When I took the car to discount tire put 2 new bf goodrich tires on the car. Then to alignment shop. They found inner tie rods were bad, which I already knew were worn. Tires cost 188 and then the alignment and the tie rods cost 361. Plus got free car wash and put in my oil sending unit in. Still need to put replace oil in the car,aslo replace the air filter. Then I plan on in 6000 miles when I rotate the tires buing two more of the same tires. Just didn't have enough cash to do all today. That was good car wash the car looks good.
