Cam positioning sensor location on 24 valve Cummins?

On my 2000 Ram Cummins the RPM's gage started going crazy and the engine sometimes would surge and the check engine light came on. When I scanned it, it came up with the “Cam shaft Positioning Sensor”. My question is where is it located?

Thanks,

Below the injection pump, on the rear of the timing cover.

Real common rail goodies that you can't get just anywhere/2200 bar pressure relief valves that flow huge volume/2200 bar rail pressure sensors/ Exergy injector services/ CP3 pumps from daily drivers to single pumps over 1200 hp potential (for real)/ custom high pressure manifolds with multi ports for relief valves and sensors/Engine parts and more

it's sort of right beside the starter bolted into the block if I remember right. I know that to change mine out it was a LOT easier to just pull the starter and then put it back in after the install.

On an '02, it's right there, tucked up at the front of the engine between the VP-44 and the engine block:

WD and Gary are right, I just changed mine a few weeks ago. It can be done without the removal of anything but it is a bit of a PITA. BTW, that rpm's guage is called a tachometer :thumbsup Good luck.

I was wondering if it could be done without pulling anything... It sure looks to be a PITA to do...

Yeah, the best way to get to it is with a very long extension and a hex head socket (cant remember the size off hand) to remove the small bolt that holds it in place. Have to come at it at a little bit of an upward angle if I remember correctly. BTW, Gary's picture needs to be rotated 90* clockwise to be oriented properly.
