I recently purchased an AEG VW US Formula 3 standard race prepared short block. This short block was built by Bertils Racing Engines. BRE was the original spec engine builder for the US F3 series. This is one of the spare leftover short blocks left. The block has been modified from stock. The block used for this engine is a new style Beetle block with an integral water pump. This short block is intended to be used with a 8 valve SOHC VW head.
I've been having a code 16706/P0322/000802 - Engine Speed Sensor (G28): No Signal. Upon looking inside the sensor hole, I couldn't find the trigger wheel only the counter weigh for the shaft of rod #4. I don't want to tear the engine apart just to place a trigger wheel on the crankshaft. Are there any places selling external trigger wheels? Race prep engines comes with all sort of surprises, the thermostat cavity had a bigger bore and the thermostat would fall in (non thermo application race setup).
