Then I would solder the connector bitch onto the wires on both sides and fluff my *****.
I'd not dremel anything. Solder wires to the pins, then fill the cavity with epoxy. Then crimp a weatherpack or similar connector to the pigtail you just created.

Make sure you set the engine to TDC #1 compression when setting the cam sync tooth.

Another option is to not cut a tooth from the crank wheel and follow the dual wheel / non missing tooth instructions.

Never had to setup a trigger wheel, so never learned how to do it. We've all learned something today, and grow stronger as men; and that's all the matters.

I'm only going to turn-it forward to no loosen the crank bolt.

That makes more sense now, but the tooth is already gone. :(

Hopefully I don't have to take the crank back off because I'm running the TSE wheel and did not install the spacer-ring.

Does anyone have tips for lining-up the CKP hall sensor? It seem like I can mount it as close or as far away from the crank as I want and I'm not sure what the distance needs to be.

I usually stick a flathead screwdriver between the tip of the tooth and tip of sensor then tighten, and that amount of distance is perfect 100% of the time.

Ben, I have tried to do this but have difficulty getting the iron down in the hole without burning the shiz out of the connector and flowing the solder where it doesn't belong. Yes this is with a thin tipped weller.

I will take a video tonight of me CKP clearance on my car so you can see how to do it. I used a credit card as my spacer between the teeth and the sensor, I have never had a problem with it that distance.
