Its in the same gerneral place on this picture of a K-series 16v as the T-series.
Are you sure its this though? In my experience if they fail, its either it works or doesn't. No half way.

Here's a view of the Vitesse T16 Gearbox adapter plate showing the location of the crank sensor ~ it's the black object at about 2 O'Clock in relation to the centre line of the crankshaft ~ approximately in the same position as the one on the K ~series as shown in that one's picture;



HTH.

Could be a weak battery or a duff alternator. Mine went like this and cut out if I went above 3-4k rpm. My alternator had kinda half died. If this is simular it might be worth checking this.
