Hi,

The camshaft position sensor isn't mounted on the engine. Actually, the sensor is located within the distributor and is comprised of a hall effect switch and a camshaft driven 6 bladed shutter plate. I attached a pic below showing the hall effect switch.

Let me know if that helps. Note, if you check at a parts store, they may refer to it as a pick-up coil/sensor.

Let me know.

Take care,

Joe
