Re: O'rielly cam sensor?

The $15 CPS from www.powerstrokeshop.com is what you need. I have heard mixed results with the non-Ford CPS.

Re: O'rielly cam sensor?

I have the Borg Warner from Oreilly, but I am having issues. It may or may not be the sensor. Also checking the harness when the great flood goes away.

Re: O'rielly cam sensor?

If you are without your truck and you need it, I wouldn't hesitate to use the one from O'Reilly's. If it were me though I'd probably go ahead and order the OEM ford part for $15 and swap it out when it comes in. Then, put the O'Reilly's part in your glove box as a spare.

The new OEM part is re-designed and is expected to be more durable. Seeing as though it just came out, I would tend to believe that the O'Reilly part is probably based on the old design. Therefore, you might view it as a knock-off of a part where even the OEM version wasn't particularly good.

Also, is the O'Reilly's part cheaper than getting one from your local Ford dealer or International? You could just go that route. The Ford dealer might even have the new CPS in stock. If so, I bet the price is cheaper than the older-style one at O'Reilly's. Ford lowered their price dramatically on the new part.

Re: O'rielly cam sensor?

Dealer price is around 27 bucks. Make sure the part number ends in -B.

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Re: O'rielly cam sensor?

Where have you been Moose?
Ford came out with the new CPS a couple months back, the new part is the same number as the old one but it ends in B not A and they cost around $30 at the stealership. However our good friend Bob at powerstrokeshop.com is selling them for $15.27 IIRC. So welcome back, now order you a new and improved CPS.

Re: O'rielly cam sensor?

They are so cheap, it's tough to not just stock up on 'em just in case they go back up.
