View Full Version : Crankshaft sensor clearance

Does anyone know what the clearance between the crankshaft (pip?) sensor and the vane is supposed to be set at? And does increasing that gap (sensor to outside of vane) advance or retard the initial timing? Thanks in advance for your help.

Ford sells a plastic tool to set the clearance. Most just use a matchbook. From what I understand it does not affect timing by clearance. The main thing is to make sure it does not rub on the vanes. I set mine up by eye and it works fine.
