You're welcome!
I would probably change the synchronizer as well.
Just think how much money you're going to save by doing this yourself!

Exclamation Re: Where is the Cam-Positioning Sensor??!?!?!?

B sure you get a replacement made in US! Found out one I bought from a parts store (supposedly OEM) was made cheaply in China, but only after the "pin" securing the oil pump drive gear sheared in heavy traffic. By the time I could pull out of traffic and shut down, the engine was toast. In the original sensor the pin was a spring steel drive pin - in the Chinese one was what looked like a scrap of soft metal.
