Default Dizzyless cam sensor (mounted in cam cover)

Anyone tell me the Ford part number for these? I was under the impression they are a Zetec Cam Sensor?

Thanks,
Mark

If you want to go distributor-less on a BT Escort Cosworth you can use the ST cam sensor (it fits where the distributor goes) and save yourself the hassle of modifying the cam cover.

Having converted to coilpacks i decided to completely remove the dizzy. Removing the dizzy meant moving the phase sensor to the cam cover Grp A style. The removal of the dizzy required an oil pump drive as well.

Firstly i made an oil pump drive by cutting the dizzy in half and machining the shaft to take a bearing



Then made a housing to fit in the block



Then pressed the two bits together




To give



And finally fitted to the engine



To fit the phase sensor in the cam cover you need to machine the cover to take the sensor holder




I then got the sensor, holder and phase sensor trigger. Available from Mountune or Zoo.





The sensor and holder fitted to cam cover



The cam requires machining to take the trigger



Thanks to [email protected] for that bit of machining

The trigger then bolts into the end of the cam




From B9KOS's tech essay....
