Thanks for looking guys. I'm setting up my third MuliGov but the first one with the back plate sensor. My question is when I go to the cofig. menu to check the sensor it starts out at 0 and then as I crank the engine it take a 1/2 to 3/4 turn until I get 99/100 reading (so far all is good). After I get the 99/100 reading it wont go away. I can turn the engine a full turn and not get 0 but for just a 1/2 second after that full turn of the engine. I do get a 0 reading at the same spot every time but it's like the 0 is at the pin location and 99/100 is the rest. I have set the sensor to touch the back plate and with a small gap with the same results. Is this the reading I should get or em I missing something.

Thanks

backplate sensor
it's fine, as long as you crank the motor and the value changes from 99/100 to 0 the sensor is ok. i experience exactly what you described and the multigov works just fine. enjoy!

Also make sure the sensor isn't too close.

What is to close? I've tried it touching the back plate and also with a small gap (about 1mm). Same result both ways.

well, it isn't rocket science i mount the sensor on a 30 size engine and the mounting bracket wasn't even designed for it. the backplate isn't "deep" enough for the 50 size hole to fit the sensor. so i put some metal spacers i found between the bracket and the engine to raise the sensor, on a trial and error basis, and luckily it worked for me on the first time, otherwise i would have tried something different, until it would work as expected.
