... I'm not so sure ... but I don't know for a fact ... tread cautiously.
The two may be mechanically the same, but I thought that the KH still had 5
windows for the hall sender.  Even if it didn't, I do know that the timing
window on the WX is different from that in the MC, so that may also be true
for the KH ...

I suppose that if they were mechanically the same you could always
transplant parts from one to the other ... but I've never been able to
remove the "shutter" from the distributor shaft without damaging it ...
