Seems a littles weird to me. The crank wheel is nothing more than a stamped wheel with teeth all around it with one tooth missing and that is how the crank sensor knows where the crank is in its rotation.
lol, muffler bearings, never gets old. the only thing i've found that mensions anything about crank trigger wheels is that the older cast versions may be prone to cracking. if you already have the stamped wheel, there's no problem. i cant load the MHS page to find it, because my damn hotel internet aint workin.
edit: got it to load, here's what MHS says "The cast thick trigger wheel as used by Ford up to 1999 is junk IMHO, just get a stamped one."
if your in the middle of doing a cam swap or something where your in that area of the motor, then yea, it might be beneficial to swap out the crank trigger wheel for a stamped steel one, but if it aint broke, dont fix it.
yep. if you have the thicker one you can replace it, MHS has them. bit expensive if you ask me though, 35$ for a peice of stamped steel.
apparently it was "Stock on all 2001 and newer modulars." (MHS quote again) so if you have the thick one, and you dont feel like replacing it, i'd say you'd be fine. if it aint broke there's nothing to fix, unless you feel like dishin out the cash for one or trying to find one used. if you've used it this far without it braking, i'd say your good to go.
