The camshaft position sensor is located inside the distributor.
It used to be called a hall effects switch and controlled spark timing.
Now the crankshaft position sensor controls the spark timing and the hall effects switch controls injector timing.
I would recommend that you buy a complete distributor, you can get them via ebay for under $100.00 and they will come with a new camshaft sensor, distributor cap and rotor.
You will have to have it scanned and have the "cam retard" (distributor timing) adjusted to ensure it is still at "0" after installing the unit
The truck will start and run fine but it is very important to have the cam retard within 2 degrees either way.
