Turned over the car this evening and there is nothing on the dash cluster (no RPM).

I have checked connections, grounds and the areas around the sensors I replaced.

Next Saturday I will replace the crank sensor
Sounds like youíve had a fair crack as gearboxes arenít the easiest thing to changeout, let alone going from auto to manual!

Based on your test, fair chance the crank sensor is at fault. Wouldnít hurt to confirm 5v and 0v at the plug at the rear of the cam cover. Not 100% if itíll show with ignition on or if the 5v supply will only be present when cranking.

Itís really not a nightmare job but itís crazy the worst part of doing the timing belts is removing the covers. Plus side is that once the covers are off the sensor will take you 30 seconds to swap out.

Oh Jaysus, I didn't do all that work myself at all Had a mechanic do that - I simply don't have the time to invest in doing a lot of that type of work myself (unfortunately)

I will give this a go on Saturday as the weather is supposed to be somewhat nice (that is, if I can move the 1 tonne of gravel, sitting on my driveway, to the rear of the house in the next few days

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to attack the car this weekend. I have next Saturday morning reserved - providing the weather stays good.

I will update the thread when done

I would first test the sensor which is easy to do (need only a multimeter) before
doing all the work.
Good luck!

There was a very loud clunk (can be heard in the video at 8 seconds).

If it is the crank sensor, what (if any) damage can be done by turning the car over

Can the sensor be replaced without removing the timing belt? (just the cover removal)

Yes, it can, but annoyingly getting the covers off is actually more difficult than doing the belt! Attached a pic of the sensor and belt, looks like you should be able to wiggle it out to me.

With the engine out, it is possible with covers and belt on. With engine in the car i think also is best to remove belt.

Thanks for that.

The engine is staying in the car.

If it is the case the belt needs to come off I will not be doing this myself.

Quick update.

Car went to specialist.

This can be done without removing the TB.

Unfortuately the TB has skipped and the timing is off, not sure yet if there is any internal damage.

The sensor looks ok but gonna replace anyways.
