89 Spider, Stupid Question!

On the flywheel, on an 89 injected model there is a pin or dowel that triggers the ignition computer. My question is: is there one or two of these pins? A picture would be nice?

Is it possible to change the upper timing chain without removing the front cover? The cams are out and the chain wired back. It doesn't look like it to me, **** it!
