Hello, this is Bob. I will do my best to assist you.
According to another site, the ignition control module is located on the left fender skirt. It is no there. This engine has the push on rotor.
Some have the ignition module on the distributor similar to this.
You don't have spark correct?
The remote mount looks like this.
Occasionally have spark but seems weak. Cable out of distributor goes up to wiring bundle into dash.
Replaced coil and rotor, cap, wires, plugs
Then it has to be a remote mount. Look by the speed control servo.
Usually mounted on the left fender.
Nothin on the left fender but the windshield washer reservoir.
that is the drivers side fender, correct, not the left as you look in the front?
The ignition module will be mounted in an aluminum heat sink mounted to the left fender.
Left is drivers side correct.
Like I said, nothing there but the washer reservoir.
Look closer to the drivers side fire wall.
Do you have a flat connector on the distributor or a round one?
Do you have a picture or drawing of the module? According to NAPA, the module should have two cables coming out of it. Is this correct?
Then the ignition module is on the distributor where the flat connector plugs on distributor.
OK,, sorry, I just saw your second drawing. That does not look like the one NAPA had.
I just saw your second drawing. That is not like the one NAPA shows.
OK, let me check. Is it inside the connector?
Here is a photo of the module. It is fastened to the side of the distibutor with 2 7/32 screws.
The head of the screws is 7/32".
Do you have to pull the distributor out?
No but you will need to loosen the distributor mounting bolt and turn the distributor so that you can get the 2 fasteners out.
If you mark the distributor before you loosen it then align the marks again so that you won't have to time the engine when you are done.
Also the distributor can be siezed in the block if it has never been moved.
