Replacing the engine in 1992-500 SEL with newer engine 1995 and have question about Top dead center transmitter (sensor on crankshaft pulley).
My old engine has this sensor but newer one don't.
Do I need this sensor for anything else except for diagnostic ???
The engine light will stay on or not?? Help me here ,Please...

You don't need that at all.

The electronic "scopes" that used that signal are ALL gone!

Will the electronics work, the 95 engine had coil packs , I think the 92 up had rotors, caps and wiring?

Everything is same except Throttle actuator and injectors are different part numbers.A/C,P/S,W/P,Air pump are just updated with different pulleys and smaller acc. belt others parts like exhaust manifolds i will replaced from old engine.This is same engine (block and heads) ..
The engine has only 45K miles it is like brand new..
Only problem i come across was this TDC sensor ,which they said is only for diagnostic..We will see...
