Can you bypass a crank sensor?

Asked by Thunderchicken96 Oct 06, 2020 at 01:15 PM about the 1999 Ford Explorer

Question type: Car Customization

I’m doing a engine swap so I went and got a
99 Ford Explorer engine. The plan was to cam
and convert to a carburetor, but I got stuck
when I seen the crank sensor. I’m trying to
find out if I can bypass it or should I just get a
different engine block? And I’m putting the
engine in a 96 Thunderbird and I recently sat it
in the car and it fit perfect, so I’m just stuck on
the sensor I’m in need of any kind of advice.

1 Answer

Which engine is this? If this is possible you would have to convert the engine to an old fashioned distributor.
