97 fuel housing leak fixed now computer says possible cam sensor

It started after housing replacement with either (now I know better ran for 5 days then quit again. It would lose power engine light come on I would turn key off, let clutch out and she ran fine. Finally it wouldn't start. pulled it a few miles never kicked off. The guy that put the comp. on it said possible cam sensor or high pressure fuel pump. What I don't understand. It ran fine even with the hole in the housing before we repaired the fuel filter housing. Ever since problems! I don't even know what a cam sensor does? The pump he said could have just went bad. To much odds against that for me. 210k on engine any idea's?

Sounds like it could be a cps. A diesel doesn't have an ignition system like a gasser so it needs a way to verify that the motor is turning.
so the cps is counting revolutions of the camshaft and sendsthat info back to the computer that the engine is running to keep the fuel flowing to the engine.
