Default Camshaft Synchronizer

Hi all,

I have a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT with 120k miles. I was told to replace the camshaft synchronizer when I bought it, so I bought one from RockAuto. I went to replace it today, but I must be retarded, because I can't find the damn thing. Is it underneath the spark plug distribution harness or something? The pictures I saw it was just sitting out in the open. Is it underneath some stuff I need to move or unbolt? It is a 3.0L V6 so I know it's there...

A picture of the damn thing without any of the engine stuff removed would be megahelpful. I feel retarded. Thanks guys.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Torque it down till it breaks off, then back it off 1/4 turn.
