Hall Sensor? Could it be?

I changed a distributer without taking the manifold off, but it's _very_
tough to drill out the anti-tamper bolt on the distributer hold down clamp.
Does the rotor turn around when the starter runs?

Subject: Hall Sensor? Could it be?


     After much helpful conversation with Brett, today i cleared the
computer codes by removing the ECU fuses and i tested it again.  This time
it spat out a much more reasonable number of codes.  the first was 2111
which is the RPM sensor and is to be expected as the car does not start, the
second was 2113 signifying a faulty Hall Sensor which is located on the
rotor (?) of the distributor.  I'm guessing this part will need replacing,
but I am not very learned on the workings of the hall sensor.  I know that
it looks like the intake manifold needs to come off for this to be done
right, but what about availability of the sensor?  can it be purchased
seperate from the distributor, or no?  and How much will this set me
back...approx.?  Thanks again for your time, I really appreciate it.
