Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you.
is this a vortec engine or is it a tbi engine?
you are wanting to test the cam sensor?
the cam sensor in the distributer doesnt have anything to do with the spark on this engine
The Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor is located within the distributor. It's operation is very similar to the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor however it will provide one pulse per camshaft revolution (1x signal). This signal is not detrimental to the driveability of the vehicle. The Vehicle Control Module (VCM) utilizes this signal in conjunction with the crankshaft position to determine which cylinder(s) are misfiring.
this engine has a crank sensor
