I have a 1992 ford ranger 5spd 2.3. Recently i
my bottom end went out so I bought a motor out of an old fox body. Had to change the head. Mine is an 8 plug dual coil pack. That motor had a distributor. We swapped heads went to go put the crank sensor on. There is no holes for the crank position sensor to bolt too. What are ny options?

Do you
have the same problem?

There is no hole for crank sensor because the engine used a distutor to determine timing and cylinder number 1 tdc. I think your going to need the wiring from fox body or get the correct engine thats what I would do

Is there anyway to get holes drilled at a machine shop to make it work?
