    Assuming it is the original engine, no there is no crank sensor.

    The function of crank sensor is accomplished by the pickup and module in the distributor. Does it have spark? Take a good hard look at your distributor cap and rotor, also, check your fuel pump pressure. It should be between 9 and 13 psi, the higher the better.
    That sensor down by the starter is the knock sensor. It will not cause a no-start on that engine.
    Good Luck and God Bless
