Default Crank position sensor

I just got a 1997 4x4 hardbody in need of repair. I got the speed sensor figured out but the crank position sensor is hanging from the harness. I can not find the location for it. Could the bell housing have been changed or can I delete the cps? Any help is appreciated

Earlier transmissions did not have a spot for the crank sensor as it wasn't used. IIRC OBDII (96 and up) started using the crank sensor.

My sensor is hanging off to the side. How much off an effect will it have on the way the engine runs?

According to the FSM, the crankshaft position sensor is only used for detection of misfires and is not used to control the engine systems. Presumably this means there will be no ill effects to removing it.
