hi all just got this shogun and had a problem with crankshaft pully sorted that it was woodruff key put it back together started up no bother but had a scraping noise found it was the sensor plate on back of pully got that straight and tried to start it it fires up but soon as i let key return it cuts out if i keep key turned to engage the starter it runs could this be the crankshaft sensor damaged as the plate was catching it any help would be good maybe someone has had same problem

As you suggest , may well be the crankshaft sensor damaged or the gap altered / wrong .
