Best solution is disconnect it and check the oil each use.

If you do replace it get a seal and crankcase gasket. You pull the side cover off, replace the sensor, replace the gasket and seal and put the side cover back on.

Thanks for the info pug. Sorry I'm just now posting back. It is actually bypassed as is the on/off switch (which I'm also replacing). Anyhow, will this require that I drain the oil?

Yep, Drain and save making a mess. The side cover as mentioned must come off.....

Good Luck

What do I need to clean the gasket and seal seats (what do I use to scrape it off)? Do I need to put any kind of sealant on the new ones before I put them on?

I use my ole Barlow pocket knife VERY carefully not to gouge the aluminum. On the seal surface just wipe with carb spray cleaner on a rag, Do the same on the block and cover gasket surfaces to remove any oil.

I spray a lite coat of paint on both sides of pan/side cover gaskets and install while still tacky. Once the engine heats up the first time that thing is sealed snug as a bug in a rug. The use of gasket sealers can change crankshaft end play specifications.

Install the seal in the cover dry.....


Good Luck
