Default Pic of exposed VVT head (showing camshafts etc)

Does anyone have a decent quality pic of an exposed VVT head showing cams etc? I'm particularly interested in seeing the part of the intake cam where the cam angle sensor pickup is located.

You can see the single tab on the back of the intake cam. you can't quite see the double tab on the underside about 180 degrees from the single. The bronze-ish circle is the cap on the rear of the exhaust cam in case you aren't familiar with the head. That's where you can fit an NA CAS for what it's worth.

Thank you!

How does that fitting mount up to the camshaft? Can it go out of alignment? Is it possible for it to spin? If so, how can I verify that it is properly aligned?

I'm looking for this info to try to figure out my car starting/running issue.

Are you talking about the fitment of the CAS on the VVT valvecover? If so, No, it cannot move nor does it have any adjustment.

No, the fitament of that double-tabbed thing on the rear of the intake cam. I'm wondering if that can spin or come off.

yes 0_0;

and for the record, those tabs at the back of the camshaft are part of the camshaft and don't move.
