The camshaft synchronizer is the (older) model (ford PN F3T212K073A)that does NOT use the alignment tool. How do I set that when installing?

do you have number 1 cylinder at tdc?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 2 years ago.
You need to have cylinder 1 at tdc. Then align the CID sensor rotor with the trailing edge of the vane lined up with the short mark at the left hand side of the plastic window

Then, install the assembled CID sensor and oil pump drive gear into the engine. As the assembly is pushed into place, the camshaft gear will rotate the sensor vane clockwise toward the center of the window.

Then rotate the CID sensor counterclockwise. Install clamp and screw finger-tight. Rotate the sensor back to its position at right angles to the back of the block
