Crank position sensor

I'm new here and looking to find out if there is a Crank position sensor on a 1997 7.3l. I know there is a cam position sensor, but does it have or need both. My web search has not been definitive, so I'm hoping someone here knows.

Thanks for your help.

I believe there is only one CPS and it is often incorrectly referred to as a cam position sensor but it is reality a crank position sensor.

I may have that backwards but there is only one CPS.

Theyre called either one, depending on who you ask. it's behind the fan, above the harmonic balancer, at about the 10 oclock position if I remember correctly.

the interrupter ring is on the camshaft, so it is a camshaft position sensor

the pistons are connected to the crank, the cam moves the valves, two totally different things, but it is a sensor for the cam shaft
