Made a Billet cam sensor today.

Recommended Posts

Used a Lathe, file, drill and belt sander. Came out really well. I wasn’t sure how I was going to hold down the sensor. At first I thought I would weld a boss for the screws to go into. I like my solution. I will make a spacer for the screw so it fill the gap between the sensor and the hold down tab.

I had seen the Jeep. It has been done before. I am a European mechanic by trade so I am biased towards Bosch senders. I now the reliability of this sensor and was already using the Volvo version so the swap will be plug and play.

That's a very elegant solution.  I especially like the way you used the circumferential groove to captivate a threaded fitting and standoff for securing the sensor - that's sort of a question, really, to be sure I am seeing it correctly. Been looking for a way to implement a cam sensor for a while now.  I think as soon as I can run my lathe again, I'll do the same thing.

What vehicle is the sensor for?


EDIT: Found one from a '95 Audi 90 that looks similar.  Never underestimate what one can accomplish when there's nothing to do but sit in front of a computer for countless hours a day. 😁

Thanks for sharing your design, tioga.
