you can just get a new dizzy. sometimes getting into the pip is hard since there are pins that you have to punch out and they could be well stuck in there

Just don't damage any wires. Best thing to do is let it ride if it isn't broken!

i got my pip sensor at advance autoparts. it wasn't the most difficult thing to switch out, but it wasn't a piece of cake. mostly because i didnt have all the things i needed

not saying it wasn't possible. you just have to be extra careful because if you need a punch to get the pins out but if you hit too hard, you can damage the shaft
