If the voltage is changing, it is due to the sensor reacting to the tone ring, no? I can see a resistance check only validating the sensor.

So all I really have to go on is the chamfered edge. Is there any way to check if the bearing has a tone ring in it?

Yea been searching like crazy. Haven't been able to find how they should be. Everything just says make sure the abs pulse generator is in the inside. I don't know what the inside is.
