Installed a new camshaft synchronizer and camshaft position sensor. There was almost nothing left of the old CPS. The piece inside the synchronizer was down to a molten nub. The truck was running on magic. Seriously, I have no idea how this thing was getting energy. It has just shy of 150K right now.

Narrowly escaped a head on collision with a motorcycle that was left in the middle of the road due to being hit by oddly enough another ranger. Truck survived minor damages to driver side , motorcycle not so lucky . The rider was airlifted out and just heard he didn't make it. All of this before 6am.
