Your CKP sensor is bolted to the top of the clyinder block, near the rear of the right cylinder head.

Remove the cap on the throttle body (19mm), disconnect the tube to the filter box. Mark and remove the plug wires and take off the distributor cap (small phillips). The connector to the sensor should be on the right side (facing the vehicle) of the distributor, disconnect it.

Using 1/4" drive ratchet and extension, get a bit holder with a 1/4" allen bit in it. If you reach down behind the head there is an emissions bypass tube that runs from the back of the head to the exhost manifold. The mounting bolts (2) for the sensor are just under that. May have to loosen a bell housing bolt to move a ground wire out of the way. Run the socket and extension between the tube and the head to get to the bolts.

Pull up on sensor and wiggle it till it comes out of the grommet in the bell housing. (WARNING: Make sure the grommet does not fall down into the bell housing.)

Re-insert the sensor. Again- (WARNING: Make sure the grommet does not fall down into the bell housing.) Put the bolts back in, reconnect the sensor, put the distributor cap back on, re-attach the plug wires, put the cap back on the throttle body, connect the tube to the filter box and finally connect the battery.
