just completed manifold swap on 4.3L V6 and lost spark @ #1, #4 cyls. cam sensor hall switches look o.k. (008) all harness plugs clean. all sensors ( h2o temp,& flow, oil pr.) working.
upper hall switch in cam pos. sensor doesn't appear to have any affect on anything. what the heck is it for? engine ran on all 6 before work
was done. sat for 3 mos. waiting for yam. manifolds before swap. by the way, I dont recommend it, major problems fitting."

"for anyone searching for answers, this is it. rip it all out, install delco h.e.i. dist, & coil, & wireset. and don't buy any more wierd crap. yamaha should be ashamed for sending this junk to our country."

"I came real close to doing that (actually, both your suggestions) - I have a 91 YEMS V8... lesson I learned - research used boats better before buying."
