i have a 95 ranger with the 2.3L The sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer. It has three grooves in it that slide on unique spaced rings.

The timing belt cover will have to be removed from the front in order to access the harness as it enters from the rear of the cover. It becomes visible once the harmonic balancer (or its belt retaining ring ) is removed.

To service it you will have to remove the large bolt in the center that holds the balancer on. Then slide the balancer off and you can loosen the two screws holding it on. There is also a wire tie holding the harness down so that it does not rub any moving parts. Be sure to replace this when reassembling.

There is an alignment tool made by OTC ( part number 6466 ) that you will need to use to position a new or replacement sensor. Place the engine at top dead center while on the compression stroke and place the little plastic tool on the locating blocks and exciter ring(s) of the harmonic balancer. At that point you can place the sensor and tighten down the screws that hold the sensor on.
