REMOVAL-REFITTING THE CAMSHAFT TIMING SENSOR ON THE F TYPE ENGINE

Engine :
Gearbox :

F3P - F3R

Basic Manual :

MR 312 - NT 2460 - NT 2473E

This technical note details the method for removal-refitting and the method for
adjusting the cylinder position sensor on F3P - F3R type engines.

The repair methods given by the manufacturer in this document are based on the
technical specifications current when it was prepared.
The methods may be modified as a result of changes by the manufacturer in the
production of the various component units and accessories from which his vehicles
are constructed".

INJECTION
Camshaft timing sensor

The camshaft timing sensor is fitted on a cover


plate . This cover plate is mounted onto the cylinder head by 3 bolts at the end of the camshaft.
It is opposite a long target of 360 made of two
types of material (steel and plastic, each making
180).
If the plastic section is opposite the sensor, the information sent to the computer is 12 Volts. If the
steel section is opposite the sensor, the information sent is 0 Volts.

Refit :

The target (C) is held on to the end of the


camshaft by a snap ring. It is also glued in place.

the sensor onto the cover plate, pushing it


upwards and torque tighten it to 0.15 daN.m,
(the 2 yellow marks on the sensor and on the
cover plate must be aligned),

To separate the target from the camshaft :

Place a tube against the back of the target.

Using a hammer, gently hit against the tube.

Take out the target (C) and the plastic


protection plate (D).

notch. Check its position before fitting it into
the end of the camshaft), (to glue it in place,
use loctite Scelbloc),

ADJUSTING THE SENSOR/TARGET GAP

Warning when adjusting; it is essential


that the sensor is aligned with the steel
section of the target and not the plastic
section.

Adjustment comprises slackening the bolt


securing the sensor without touching the sensor
and retightening this bolt to a torque tightening
of 0.8 daN.m.
Slackening off the bolt frees off the sensor. A
spring inside the cover plate holds the sensor onto
the steel section of the target.
Tightening the bolt secures the sensor. This bolt
has two plastic grooves which are held back
against the target. These grooves wear together
during the first turns of the engine. There is no
further contact and the gap is adjusted.
Wearing of the grooves is normal. The sensor
needs changing when these are completely worn.

DI1703

VERY IMPORTANT : After refitting the sensor it is ESSENTIAL to check that the sensor is correctly adjusted.

Use the voltmeter function on the XR25 to carry out this operation.
Leave the sensor connected, slide back the rubber sleeve protecting the back of the connector. Start the engine. Read off the voltage on track N 2 of the sensor (middle track). The voltage displayed on the XR25 must
alternately be 0 Volts then 12 volts. If it is not, re-adjust the sensor.
