I do have schematics for your car. I will get them for you. One minute.

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 5 months ago.

I can't make a phone call, but i'm sure someone else can if you'd prefer that. Here are the schematics for your car. The first attachment is everyting and is very large. I included it in case you needed it. The second schematic is the engine compartment schematic. Start with that one and see if you can find what your looking for in that one first.

My old bracket did not have a reference sensor sleeve on sensor this one seems to need one because sensor is real loose does it have to have one to make sensor work I need help
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 5 months ago.

earlier you mentioned a solid green wire and a black wire. Those are both ignition coil wire colors on your car.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
The wires to my coil are attached the black and the green but the green has no pulse just constant fire when cranking no pulse
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 5 months ago.

Are you getting anything out of the coil?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I am getting 12 volts on black wire 12 volts on green wire which turn to ground but no pulse and no fire from coil wire in center of coil to distributor.

I am going to opt out. My information on this car is very limited. I think someone else here may be able to help you better.
