Thanks for holding!On this vehicle, the Camshaft Position Sensor is built into and part of the Distributor Assembly. The Camshaft position sensor consist of a signal plate and pickup coil.The sensor plate has one tooth on its outer circumference and is built into the distributor.
So, if you are getting a P0340- carefully inspect the electrical connector and wire harness to the distributor for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If no problems are found, the distributor assembly will need to be replaced.

There is only 1 electrical connector to the distributor. There is a test procedure that can be done with the use of an Ohms meter. I have the test procedure in PDF format here: https://goo.gl/vtluen
Were there any other questions I could help you with today?
Sounds good. Please let me know how you make out!
Sounds like the air gap may be off. The P0340 is a very straight forward code. Either a problem in the wiring to the distributor, or the distributor itself. This is actually fairly common on this model year.
