6.0L Power Stroke Engine and DrivetrainDiscussion of the 6.0L Power Stroke diesel engine and drivetrain in the 2003-Up Super Duties and Excursions. No gas engine discussion allowed except on transmissions and drivetrain that pertain to all models. Please confine discussion of topics in this forum to those items that are specific to the 6.0L Power Stroke engine.
The cam sensor reads off of a pin pressed into the crank so your gonna see one pulse per crank revoloution irregardless of how many revoloutions of the cam.
Not shure what yer trying to figure out, but in 51 years of working on diesels I have never seen a diesel jump time. They are gear to gear no chain to streach and jump over.
I have seen gears break useually from trying to eat a bolt but once thaat happens the engine locks up because it can't turn with a foreign object wedged in the gears.
Just for reference the timeing gears are mounted on the back of the engine not the front.
This will at least get things started.
I appreciate your response. If I understand you correctly, you’re saying the cam sensor on a 6.0 is triggered from the CRANK? This begs the question: why is it called a “cam position sensor”?
The reason I ask is somewhat unique, but suffice it to say, I need to mimic all the signals a 6.0 feeds to the PCM. I know about the crank sensor, which — if I’m not mistaken — is a 58 tooth reluctor wheel. (actually, it’s a 60 tooth, but 2 of the teeth are missing; ostensibly to tell the PCM where TDC is.)
