I will be recording sound with an analog tape recorder. I imagine an audio recorder with crystal sync and timecode (no pilot channel) is best, but if I choose to shoot with an older camera will there be an issue of compatibility? The options for audio recorder seem to be either crystal sync with pilot channel or crystal sync with timecode, but not both. How common is timecode in 16mm cameras and how does it work?
Many thanks for your knowledge,

With the camera generated time code, you'll need to use a telecine that can read the time code on the edge of the film.
