I just changed mine out today. We'll see if that was the chirping noise I heard. The bushings weren't bad, the sensor was not damaged. I had some rust colored dust in the sensor housing at the top. I could get it to squeal if I pushed the shaft upwards while turning it. (290K miles on the original)
I'm so freakin ****. I put it in 6 times. LOL I did a test start and it fired up right away. I'm pulling the harmonic balance to check for an oil leak on the timing cover.
Still on the trail.
