What tool is needed to set the crank shaft sensor?

2) Need plastic damper cover...anyone know where it can be found?

cardboard match cover or cereal box cardboard to slide in between the vanes and the sensor to set the distance. I tightened it down, then turned the motor over slowly by hand to make sure none of the vanes would hit it. As for the plastic cover, I did without it, I want to be able to see when my balancer is getting ready to implode again. :)

Thank you very much

I was not sure if I needed the cover or not.

Your probly better off without the plastic cover.

Mine caught a belt, which made the belt jump the pulley and to break the crank sensor tooth right off, stranding me in the middle of no-where.

Everytime I have done one I just put the new one exactly where the old one was.

Aced the cover on both cars.
