For those running the "new" IH CPS (1885812C91)
I picked one up today from the local IH dealer and installed it. It was a HUGE PIA! The old one came out fine but the new one kick my *** going back. If you try to bolt it up then hook up the weather pack connector, it's impossible due to the location of the crank pulley. Long story short, I hooked up the sensor, then bolted it up. This caused the bolt to go in crooked and now it's cross threaded! I spaced the bolt out with washers and it appears to have "bit" but it's not right. Also, I used the shims that came with the CPS and installed them as per IH instructions. Did you all use the shims? A few sites I went to say not to use shims!? What a friggin day! I never thought changing a stinking CPS sensor would be so tough. The plus side is it 100% fixed my surging idle problem. I don't notice any discernable difference in performance.
