hi there.  what gap do you think you have now between the sensor and the timing lugs. I have a similar problem, but do not want to damage my crank sensor. in reply to your own problem, have you thought about a compression test

It's only smoking cos no2 pot isn't working, once you get that done it should stop, try loosening the fuel feed nut slightly on no2 as it might be airlocked

But surely if it's smoking fuel is going into the cylinder but not igniting ? As for a compression test the engine ran perfect in the car it was taken out of. Could glow plug cause it

Sorry the crank sensor goes as far down as it can . We had it about 3 mm from fully in and it wouldn't go .

Oh yes a big warning ! When working on crank shaft sensor fill the hole in with some tissue etc , I dropped the bolt into the gear box and had to partially remove the box I was not happy !
