Hi everyone ,

hope you all had a great new year

I've got tomorrow of ,and with the help of my nephew ,we are going to fit the replacement engine to my brothers mx5 (mk2 1.8)

originally it was just an engine and radiator ,but a shed load of work has gone on since he had the car dropped of to my house

anyhow ...I really need some help ,I have two items that I just can't remember taking off the engine .....and don't know where they go ...can anyone identify these parts for me

one is a piece of wiring ,that has a socket and plastic thing at the end (sorry to be vague )....the other is just a small metal bracket

here is a picture I took....



any help would be great

thanks steve

Thats the crank angle sensor. Bolts onto the right hand side of the engine as you look at it, just next to the crank pulley.

Without it, the engine wont run!

Bolts onto one of the plastic covers that cover the timing belt to hold it in place, the connecting plug should be in that area as well then.
