cps sensor?

do these sensors tend to fail? the reason i ask is last time my truck was running i did the harmonic balance seal. and when i put it back together i fired up the truck and noticed my tach was not workin well my truck has been apart for some time and its time to start puttin it back together and figured id ask what you guys think it could be? something else i should check?

Your truck doesn't have a CPS, that's a 24 valve thing.
It does have an engine speed sensor (ESS) that do fail.
More often the problem is cut wires or improper gap.

Make sure it's plugged in, and check the gap. About a playing card thickness from the balancer.
