Very easy - 1 or 2 screws to remove, unplug it, reverse procedure with new sensor!
(Assuming it's a standard Yam part as per the gubbed one I took off my old 50......)
I must admit, until that post above I thoght it was the actual PT was gubbed (i.e not moving or leaking fluids). Might be worth checking the guy with the 40 didn't make the same mistake?
Also as hinted at above - a private sale will get you a bit more cash (the dealer has to make money, so he / she will never offer you the going rate for a used engine) Having said that, as you have aleady alluded to - is that a price worth paying to remove the hassle?
