Err, that's a 12V Cummins. They're strictly mechanical, no sensors at all
His bus is a '97 year model. My Dodge 3/4ton is a '93 with the same engine, except for the injection pump, and my '93 ( with 340k + miles) has a crankshaft position sensor. Now I wonder how that got there any why I had to replace it last year...

Re: Going to look at buses on Friday

cummins supplies the engines to dodge without the sensor, the sensor is a dodge add-on that they call a speed sensor (not a crank position sensor, resolution is way too low) it is used to control idle speed cruise control transmission shifting tachometer etc, most likely it is not present on a bus (or any non-dodge vehicle)

My BAD (assumption),

Thank you gentlemen for setting my right on this. Just going by what my local shade tree mechanic told me. I have learned something new today. What a great engine these 5.9 are, esp. when coupled with the manual or mt643 tranny .
