    Whoops!

    I'm in the middle of replacing 2 bent pushrods and I just noticed a broken plastic sensor that is supposed to be behind the intake. It looks like it stands up ontop of a round metal piece that has some kind of plastic film inside of it. The piece that is broke off is black and is about 3 inches long (would take a picture, but my camera is dead and can't seem to find the charger), it also has a plastic yellow piece that slides out of it and has a little copper spring underneath. Anyone know what I broke?

    Sounds like you broke the little oil pressure sender behind the intake.

    You'll need an inch lbs. wrench, because I'm almost certain it's an inch Lbs. torque spec,,,,I just can't remember the number off the top of my head.

    Edit: Ooops, it's listed as 15 ft. lbs.
