crank issues

I was hoping someone could tell me the name of this part. I pulled it from my 94 Mazda and need to have it replaced as it's throwing off the timing. Name:  S6301229.jpg

It fits around the crank pulley for the timing belt. It comes from a 1994 ford 2.3 L engine.

Fairly certain. The collars that pass through the sensor are bent.

actually the one in the picture is one we pulled from a junk yard. A lot of junk yards here don't even part out their vehicles. We had to go an hour away for this one. we got it thinking that the original in my truck was in worse condition. It wasn't.

Ok. Well considering only the short wall is bent on the reluctor ring, should it still function properly with the sensor? I'm only somewhat confidant that its the ring that's faulty.

that ring should be perfect, a little bend can throw it off. but i would put a sensor in to be on the safe side.

Well. Having watched me piddle around too long on this thing, my brother decided he'd get me a code reader. And all the while I was hoping for a 227 so I wouldn't feel retarded for spending so much time on it. But alas, I got myself a 224.

code reader should have been the first thing you did. its stupid with vehicles now to just start replacing parts unless you scan them cause you dont know what the actual issue is

Luckily we hadn't poured too much money into it before this point. Being a novice and learning as I go does have a great deal of disadvantages. But after using the code reader and examining the coils, we found the 1st and 4th exhaust stroke coils to be faulty. The only thing we lost here is a great deal of time. I'll be picking up and installing the ignition coil tomorrow. Pretty excited. And yes, I do feel quite stupid. But at least I know better for next time.

^^Meh....we all do stupid stuff.

*I once started filling up a gas truck with diesel. The container was marked both green and red in different areas. My buddy started laughing and told me it was wrong. I looked at him an continued on saying that if he was serious he wouldn't be laughing. Bastard just kept laughing!?!?! 20gallons later finally another buddy comes along and says that it was wrong. Had to siphon it all out.

Wonderful. My brother told me this story of a guy who was changing his oil. He was having trouble with the plug so he unscrewed the oil filter and ran his vehicle till it stopped spewing.
