Works perfectly. I had suffered from an oil leak from the back of the engine for several years. I had even replaced the cam sensor o-ring before,but the problem was, somebody had installed an o-ring with too-small cross section. I replaced it with one the same that, of course, still leaked. MX5parts supplied the correct one and now, no oil drips on the garage floor! I have a 1990 MX5 with the sensor on the right hand side of the block. Do not try to do this job without taking the cam cover off - there’s no way of getting the cam sensor out because the bulkhead gap is too small. With the cover off, it’s easy to mark the position, remove the saddle over the sensor and replace the o-ring.
