I'm replacing the automatic transmission behind a 2001 4.0 with a manual. When comparing the timing slots on the original flex plate with the timing slots on the new flywheel (which replaces the flexplate), I noticed that they are shifted by around 1 degree (which equates to around 3/16" at the outer surface of the flywheel). So for my question: I have to drill a hole in the bellhousing for the crank position sensor. Should I duplicate the CPS sensor location relative to its original position in the transmission housing - which is optimized for a flexplate installation? Or, should I shift it 1 degree (~3/16")? I'm inclined to guess that the slots are shifted on the flywheel to account for the higher magnetic permeance of the flywheel. Does anyone has any insightsuggestions? Or better yet, does anyone have a factory manual transmission lying around - where you they could measure from center of CPS to center of transmission bolts (left and right of CPS)? Many thanks!
