    Sticky: Defender Re: Defender 2.8 service schedule and parts

    Mine is the later model, and crank sensor sits at the back.

    Was your sensor one with a plug with a cable or just like a plug that went into the hole?

    1997, the sensor is in front under the radiator hose. If you have a later model one they had stock for about R650 and Cam sensor for about the same.
