Yes your stator is very likely defective, you should have a flashing test light at the neg side of the ignition coil,[during cranking of engine] since you have already replaced the ign module the only thing left is the stator.
Did the gear on the end of the distributor looked OK? Pop the cap back off and make sure it does turn..Make sure you have 12v at r/alb [crank] and r/lg [key on] at the module.
What brand name of parts are you using for replacement? Just running out of ideas here, check that the distributor housing is a good ground, ohm it back to the negative battery post. [5 ohms or less] Make sure you did not damage any of the vanes that go thru the stator, if they rub on that, you will need to straighten them back out. Both screws are present & tight for module and stator [it grounds thru those] Make sure that you have battery voltage [use volt meter instead of test light] at all those pins.
