ARCHIVE: ignition sensor
« on: October 01, 2011, 04:18:00 PM »
Can anyone tell me where the ignition sensor is in a 92 Rocky and where I can get a new/used working one?
Thanks

If you\'re talking about a crankshaft positioning sensor there isn\'t one. The Rocky uses the old fashioned distributor/rotor type.

That is what I was afraid of. I am having a starting problem and all the mac.s I talk to say it is the sensor but no one could tell me where it is.

There\'s been several issues posted in here similar to your problem including bad distributors and even a few where the outside ring on the harmonic balancer turned on the rubber making it hard to time.

Use the search box to find those posts and good luck!

It is in the distribitor.....Go to the manual section and look in the ignition section page IG-9 shows the ignitor as #20 and the pickup coil as #6.  You problem could be either of these.  It could aslo be the igition coil mounted on the fire wall...

Thank you, we have narrowed it down to the distributor. The coil has been replaced, so has the cap and rotor.
