I had a major breakdown of my X17DTL -98 diesel engine. As I'm in possession of an older (-97) Astra engine with low running miles, my plan was to replace the broken -98 engine with the older -97 engine. The faced problem is a r.p.m. sensor that takes impulses from crankshaft in the X17DTL -98 and the older -97 did not have that sensor. Anyone knows a way around the problem? Is it possible to take the signal e.g. from the flywheel? What about the ECU, will I face problems there too?
