MY CAM SENSOR HAS PROGRESSIVLY GOTTEN LOUDER AND LOUDER. I DECIDED TO REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE KNOWING THAT WAS THE NOISE I WAS HEARING. I REPLACED IT WITH THE NEW ONE AND THE NOISE IS NOW GONE.
WHEN I PULLED THE OLD ONE OUT I INSPECTED IT AND FOUND THE GEAR & SHAFT TO MOVE UP AND DOWN CLOSE TO A QUARTER OF AN INCH.
I HAVE HEARD OF PEOPLE REBUILDING THESE AND SHIMING THEM WITH A SPECIAL WASHER.
I NEED THE PART # FOR THE GEAR AND NEED TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF WASHER USED TO SHIM IT AND WEAR TO GET THE SHIM/WASHER. I WOULD LIKE TO REBUILD THIS ONE TO HAVE ON HAND IN CASE I NEED IT FOR ANOTHER CAR. IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME WITH THIS I WOULD APPRECIATE IT, THANKS....

HEY STEVE THANKS FOR RESPONDING.

ITS NOT CHEWED UP BUT IT DOES HAVE A BIT OF WEAR ON THE GEAR.
YOU SAY JUST USE STANDARD CHEVY SHIMS?

THIS MIGHT SOUND STUPID OF ME BUT I HAVE NEVER REBUILT A CAM SENSOR DRIVE BEFORE. WHERE WOULD THE SHIMS GO? BETWEEN THE GEAR AND HOUSING?

THANKS

yep...I went to the mailing list and found this written by Zak Klein who used to run the part department of Klein Buick who used to give us great prices....don't know if the numbers is still valid or not.

The part numbers for the cam sensor shims are:

1927529 = .005"
1837617 = .031"
* each kit contains 10 shims.

According to the May/June 1995 issue of the GS-Xtra, the desired
cam sensor drive gear to cam sensor housing clearance is .015"-.018",
by shimming to the proper specs the cam sensor noise can be
eliminated.
