2003 Dodge Ram 1500 can only use a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7. Just ran into this problem with mine

Tienes que cambiar el engrane del árbol de levas de copiloto que tiene unas ventanas atrás son las que mandan la cincronisacion del Crank chaf y también cambiar el anillo reductor del cigüeñal que está en el mismo sensor pero en la parte de abajo del sigueñal y poner los originales de tu motor y ya listo el del cigüeñal tienes que cortarlo por la mitad para poderlo quitar sin desarmar el motor y cuando lo cortés que no sea de dónde están los picos por que dañarias la pieza y cuando lo pongas en el motor nuevo pon le un punto pequeño de son eadura para que vibre espero te allude
