Cam synchro part numbers?

Sorry if this has been posted somewhere.. I did search "synchro" (as I do not know the full and correct part name) but was unable to locate either name nor numbers.

I searched Autozone on a whim.. nothing looks related except a camshaft position sensor.. which looks nothing like the part in the How-To.

The Synchronizer is the gear drive and housing assembly and the Cam Position Sensor fits on top of it. In the most common scenario, the Synchronizer wears out and begins to fail first, eventually damaging the CMP sensor. If may also seize up and/or tear the teeth off where it is driven by the cam - either of which stops the engine's oil pump and nothing good can come of that.

BTW, the aftermarket replacement Synchro / CMP assemblies found in the chain parts stores and on eBay have a reputation for poor fit and early failure. Motorcraft costs more but, IMO, it's not worth taking the risk with the knockoffs..

Just remember that the part numbers for the Synchro and CMP vary by year and engine. For example, not all 3.0 parts will fit all 4.0's and a 96 part from either engine will not fit a 2000.

I got mine from these guys. For a genuine motorcraft part it was the best price I could find. Mine should be here thursday.

Depending on your year (mine is an 02) you may want to give them a call real quick just to check to make sure it fits.
