Replace is done.
13mm socket or 6mm hex for the bolt. Have seen a lot of different info in the web

jrcromwell - good picture, I have it in the same location - but I dont like it, its too low for being such an important part of the car.
I will try to locate it higher if possible

I know that manufactures change things during production runs all the time. Perhaps this is the case with the CKP plug location.
This is the pic from my 98 5.9 the 5.2's I have done from 97 and 98 have been in the same place.
When I rebuilt my transmission and resealed the engine I looked at moving that plug location.
All I can say is that there must have been differences during manufacturing.

I used 1/4 ratchet, 3 long extensions, swivel adapter and 13mm socket. Ratchet between the A/C lines. Tool on the right hand and left hand supporting from the passenger side of the collector.
It takes me like 15-20 minutes to get it out
Thank you all for the info, I will try to get the connector as high as possible when I have the new Mopar sensor on hand.

When I access my CPS, I first remove the exhaust wye pipe, then lower the transfer case / transmission, providing acceptable blind reach one-arm access.
My CPS connector is also not near the O2 sensor.
Curse words are optional, but not required...

|Timo_90xj||My crankshaft position sensor connector is in the area where that picture shows it should be. It sure is a tight spot to reach, but it is nowhere near the upstream O2- sensor connector on my Jeep.|

|Mitogt||i just replaced my crank position sensor on my 98 5.2, the connector was near the O2 sensor, did not have much space to put hands on connector to plug them together but did it finally get tigt together, seems like it was there from factory|

This image shows that the transmission doesn't have cable / connector mounts near the CPS, only at the transmission / overdrive joint, red in the image.
Another image shows the same for the rear of the engine.
None of my chassis images show a connector mounting location.

Thank you Timo, so the wire harness is not in the original place for me.
It was there for my ´95 5.2, so I was surprised to find it near the O2 sensor.

´98 V8 crank sensor plug original location
I´m soon replacing my crank sensor (5.9) - when I removed the old one, the connector plug was hanging around the front O2 sensor location, more in the tranny side.
What is the original location for the crank sensor connector plug?
Somewhere up the tranny?
I would like to get it high as possible.
