Default 98 LS400 Camshaft Position Sensor

Just got a 98 LS400 I was stopped at a Light.. Pulled off .. Car started running real rough with no power.. then shut down... Figured it was the fuel pump.. Changed that out and Battery (Needed Battery) CHECK VSC came on a few days prior but vanished.. Car has been running well drove from Fredrick MD with no issues then this happened.. After changing fuel pump car did turn over but Knocked a little and gave this code... Thoughts?? I have read a few other posts about this code.. but nothing is really helping.. any Input would greatly help... JZ
Car has 323 on O

Did the sensor, or the bolts holding it in place, somehow come loose inside the pulley cover?
