Revlock10 sensor reliability
I've just done a load of tweeks to my 90 and was really looking forward to giving it some stick tomorrow when I discovered my sensor isn't working. I checked it out on a scope and there are no pulses coming from it.
Has anybody got any experience of these as I wondering how reliable these sensors are ?

My Revlock sensor had its head chopped off when the magnet came out of the fan. I reinstalled a TJPro maget with new sensor and its still not working properly. I have a spare CSM magnet and fan so will take the engine out one more time...

Is your sensor physically damaged at all?

Just got round to dismantling the whole assembly and found the ground wire on the 3 pin socket was loose. The strange thing is that after fixing that, I waggled a magnet above the sensor, and could see the voltage changing accordingly, but the Revlock didn't want to pass the sensor OK test and stop flashing. As it's all in bits, I think I may as well replace the sensor, or at least get a new one as I want to see the revlock pass the sensor test before bolting everything back together.

I had great difficulty getting it to pass the sensor test manually. You almost have to actually mount it and spin the engine with the starter.

It probably reasonable to assume it has a minimum bandwidth.

Yes I think so. I could do it but I had to swipe it back and forth as fast as I could which is quite difficult when you are maintaining 1.5mm of clearance.

Yes. I just tried that by sliding it over a piece of cardboard, and I got it to switch once. Probably OK to put it all bacl together now.
