I'm trying to find specific instructions to change the oe sensor over to the Dorman unit. I've seen it but can't locate it now. Where to look?
This is from page 316 from another user. I followed what it said below and if you read on page 322, I posted a reply about when I changed my OPDA recently with some tips as well. Here's the info:
All said and done, the removal/ install is easy.
-Put it in neutral and block tires
-remove opda dust cover/cap
-turn main shaft clockwise (3/4" socket) until holes in opda line up (that is TDC)
-remove cps from side (dont unplug it)
-remove opda retainer clip screw
-lift opda out, inspect for wear / replacement etc.
-inspect new unit for any issues - compare to old unit
-line up oil pump key hole (what the bottom of the opda fits into) with a screw driver (because the oil pump can move and not cause issue) to line up opda where you want it similar/close to the original unit's position (doesn't matter)
-re install new opda (with the plastic alignment pin still in the alignment holes) with the new gasket on in place
-put the opda retainer clip and screw back in place tighten
-put the cps back in place and tighten
-remove the alignment pin from the bottom of the opda
-put the opda dust cover/ cap back on
As long as the new opda holes were pinned in to alignment (timed for tdc) upon installment and the unit fits or seats down in the oil pump key hole properly- you're golden.
Go ahead and start it.
The hardest thing is the opda retainer and screw.
It's hard to see and reach.
Ps- my opda came with gasket.
And the oil pump key will fit probably within a couple tries of moving the oil pump keyhole around with a screw driver.
