Does CPS mean cam position sensor. I am new to this and where does one find the best and cheapest CPS. Here in Ks. my mechanic said it was 300.00 dollars

thats a bit pricy for the cam position sensor. alot of folks get them from ebay for around 50 bucks or so. new from ford they are maybe 100.
you might also look for an international dealer, they have good prices on parts for the 7.3l
easy to change also, sits on the bottom of the engine and is easy to get to, heres a write up on the procedure.
