Hi, I am in the process of changing over engines on my Toyota

Resolved Question:

Hi, I am in the process of changing over engines on my Toyota Yaris vvti 1.0l. I have noticed my engine has a three pin cam sensor and the engine which is to be fitted has a two pin cam sensor. I was wondering if i can swop these sensors over successfully?

Hello

they should be compatible

the thing to check is how far the sensor probe sticks out between the 2 pin and 3 pin as if the trigger wheel the sensor is pointing at is in a different place it could run into the sensor

Hi Matt, Just picked up your reply. Both sensors are the same length and when held in place by hand the engine turns over freely . The location and fixing point for these sensors is identical on both engines so the next stage is to carry on with fitting the replacement engine. Many Thanks.
