Lotus Elan

connectors for crank position sensor

PostPost by: bob_rich » Sun Mar 04, 2012 2:33 pm

Hi Folks

As part of my rebuild I am fitting Engine Management on my December 1973 Lotus Elan +2S130

I have sourced all the parts and have got all the required connectors for the electrics except for 1.

I need to get hold of a connector for the Crank Position Sensor. The one I have ( I believe) is from a Rover MGF models up VIN YD522572. The sensor itself has a part number NSC100390 and is referred to in the MG Rover Parts list as a
Crank Sensor Engine Lucas Long Pin 1. Picture attached below.

Welcome any ideas. Scrap yards ( around here) and Rover spares suppliers only want to sell complete looms bit excessive to cut a single connector off

Any suggestions on source of supply or any details on connectors such as what type R they would help.

regards

Bob

Bob,

I think have an old MGF engine loom somewhere here that I have already cut up for something else. I think there will still be the crank sensor plug and some wire on it.

I will have a look and get back to you.

Cheers,
Simon

Bob,

I've found a couple of the plugs with shielded wire on.

If you want them drop me a pm or email with your details and I'll stick them in the post.

Cheers,
Simon

The picture looks similar to the Mondeo sensor that I use.
