Default Crank Sensor Trouble (not location related)

Hey guys got a new truck and need advise. I scored a great condition 2004 ram 1500 with a bad 4.7L motor for 1K. Yanked out the old motor took block and heads to machine shop and rebuild it myself from the ground up to stock specs. This was my first engine rebuild so I didn't wanna experiment with performance mods. It was a bad front pump that killed the engine.

I got the engine back in the truck but mating the tranny and the motor was a nightmare. Ended up unbolting drive shaft and pushed the tranny back and then got it to fit.

Now here I am standing in the engine bay plugging everything in connecting all the sensors and I stumble across the CPS. I replaced it with a new one but there is no connector! Anywhere!

Nothing is coming off the harness thats laying on the bell housing.

I have one plug that has no mate on the front next to the A/C pulley ( speaking of which. does anyone have a A/C pulley. Mine was gone when I got the truck?)

Where can this plug be? Im also afraid that maybe I ripped it out because i missed unplugging it during removal? What would I do in this case? The truck is worth nothing to me if this CPS isn't working.

Look forward to any advise you guys have.

What are you calling a CPS? Crank or cam position sensor?

You didn't pinch it between the block and bell housing, did you?

It's got to be there somewhere. Start at the PCM and follow the harness branches until you find it.

You'll have to locate the damaged wiring and repair it. I would recommend trying to get a connector from a salvage yard so you can look at the original harness and see where it was tied in.
