Front ABS sensor gap to ring

Been quite a while, but could do with a bit of help.
Just fitted new front bearings to the Ibiza for MOT.
Once the hubs were stripped, I knocked out the inner race of the bearing, ran a weld around the outer race to pull them in before pressing out. All went well, pressed in new bearings, all well and refitted, job done.
The ABS light is now on, on inspection, one sensor is almost touching the ring, the other seems to have a 4 or 5mm gap. I left the sensors in while the bearings were welded, and I fear they may have gotten too hot. Snapped one bolt, and they seem solid in the hub. If I fit new ones, what should the ideal gap be between the sensor and the ring.
Cheers.

Ordered a couple of sensors from ebay, £5 each, not a bad price, not sure what they will be like, haven't arrived yet.
Decided to remove the two old ones and tap out the m6 bolts tonight. To my pleasent suprise, the sensor on the off side came off no problem. There were two washers packing this one out, the one with the 5 to 6mm gap. Tried cleaning it up and refitting without the washers, leaving an air gap of about 2mm to the ring.
Left the one on the near side, the one almost touching the ring.
Put the wheel on and gave it a go, light came on when I started the engine, reversed off the drive, still on. Then when I pulled away, thankfully, the light went out.
Took her for a test run, and all is well, what a difference with new bearings all round. I'll be able to hear the missus now, the only down fallhttp://www.seatcupra.net/forums/images/smilies/tongueout.gif
