For 95 it was called a CID for cylinder identification . Some call them CMP.
Its mount on top of the oil pump drive assy at the rear of the engine.
Looks like a cut off distributor, sensor is on top..

Default Location - Camshaft Position Sensor

On the 2000 OHV.....Should be same as 4.0 L Cologne OHV V6.

You need a step stool. Passenger side, rear of engine, against firewall. Feel for a hose then drop your hand straight down and feel for a cable harness hooked up to round object with two screws on top.

I forget if it's metric or SAE, but go to AutoZone, O'Reilly's, etc and ask to look at it, it has new screws included. Grab a plastic pouch of small ignition wrenches and see if metric or SAE best fit. It's close to 1/8" or 6 mm.

You'll have to do it by feel. I forget if the OEM or replacement had a shoulder on the bolt. If there is a shoulder, it's easy to place wrench over bolt; if no shoulder, place thumb over the wrench to let bolt touch your thumb and keep the wrench from going past the bolt head.

The sensor goes in only one way.

I doubt you can get your head that far in. You can see it with mirror and floodlight to get an idea how to do it by feel. But you need a step stool to get that far into engine.

Default Remote Cellphone Camera App

I found this trick useful with a spare Android phone.

App is called Warden Cam. Set one phone as camera, other as viewer. If you have a spare unused phone, turn on hotspot on primary phone and connect spare phone as camera to it.

I also have support for the ac line going vertically by the trany dip stick. Can you be a little more descriptive on where it is located? Thanks in advance for your help can you call me on my cell phone 603 475 3709 pete

95 pushrod have a synchronizer..
At the back of the intake you’ll see the cam/oil pump drive. The CMP/Synch sits on top.
