What bugged me the most was that there was no info on this. Some of the places and parts I checked were just the sensor, some had the pigtail, some had the bracket. But if I had walked in there with the old one, they would have been flummoxed.

If we cannot afford to take care of Veterans, then we should stop making them.

Last time I replaced one it was 180˚ off - must be a superceeded
part. You're certainly not alone. It was far more annoying to have
to grind parts of the casting off to make it fit on my non-stock axle
than skip the metal cage though :)

not a single straight panel left - really. I finally got the hood.
