92 2.3L CKP - Replacing the Crankshaft Position Sensor

Per the manual I need a Ford tool T89P-6316-A Crankshaft Hall Effect Sensor Positioner to install a new CKP.

For Dealer says they don't use or sell that tool.

How do you set the position of the sensor?

In my Chilton manual it does not say anything about that tool. It says:
"Position the sensor against the engine front cover, then install the mounting stud/bolts. Tighten them until snug.
Install the CKP sensor cover and retaining nuts; tighten the nuts until snug.
Reattach the wiring harness connector to the CKP sensor.
Connect the negative battery cable."

Are you possibly confusing the CMP/ CKP?
The CMP (camshaft position sensor) was not used on a 92. Only 94 CA 2.3's and then 95-99 49 state 2.3's used CMP's.
I think you're reading the CMP R&R procedure for 94 CA 2.3's.

For the CKP, according to my manual, it's a simple R&R.
CKP is located on engine front cover.
Unplug the connector, remove the sensor cover, if equipped, remove the sensor retaining bolt, remove the sensor. Reverse to reinstall. No torque spec, tighten all bolts until snug.
Hope that helps.

Ya I was wondering if u r a 100% sure that there is no camshaft position sensor in a 1992 ford ranger 2.3l? I have been looking everywhere because I heard it may be my problem and the auto parts store seems to have one for it. I'm just not sure? I hope u can tell me. Thank u very much.

I had a mechanic replace the CKP on my 89 ranger because it wouldnt start. when I picked the truck back up I drove it a few miles and it quit, got a ride home went back the next day to tow it and it started up, drove it on home it died in the driveway. truck would run after the engine cooled off but would die before you could go more then a few miles. long story short sencor was not gaped correctly and when crank got hot it would expanded makeing contact with sensor. So tool or not correct gaping is important.
