Yes, idea one. The sensor (bare IC) works on the side with the two long bevels (this side should have lettering on it. Orientation is important because all other remaining sides have reduced performance. The back side does not work at all.

You say you mounted it vertical pointing at the magnet, this is not correct. You would need to mount it with the large square face with the two beveled sides facing the magnet. this should work best.

You should get a spark everytime the magnet passes and leaves the sensor regardless of direction.
